Archive for the ‘Two Notch Road’ tag
Curiously when I went by Sandler's at Sandhill the other week, there were no closing signs on the store. The billboards were up in several places however. They don't give a date, but I'm guessing the end of May would be a logical time.
It appears this little building on the L'il Cricket lot at the corner of Two Notch & Covenant has changed hands again.
It is now K-Wayzz Corner Grill.
LoopNet says this building is mostly one huge open space, which makes sense for an auction hall. R. H. Lee lists here as late as the February 1997 phonebook, but were gone by the February 2005 phonebook, so I'm guessing early 2000s for the closing date. I'm not sure what happened to the front of the building -- whether it's just boarded up, or someone has stripped the exterior for some reason.
While I was out taking pictures for La Bag Lady, I noticed this empty storefront across the street. It turns out to have been women's clothier Coldwater Creek, and WLTX has the story of how the whole chain went bankrupt in April of 2014.
Apparently they had a Columbiana Mall location as well.
I was never sure if this store name were LA Bag Lady as in Los Angeles and California chic or La Bag Lady as in French chic. After actually seeing the sign, I'm going with France.
This is not the only bad news for Sandhill lately, but there has been a bit of good news in the announcement that Sam's Club is coming.

I'm pretty sure I still have the battery I bought at this Tire Kingdom.
The location, on a Columbia Mall outparcel is not visible from Two Notch or Parklane, and with this being the back side of the mall, and the theater being closed, I have to think that not enough people were driving by to keep the place in mind.
Well, I was unhappy to notice this real estate sign. As I mentioned when they moved, my parents always felt that Bob Andrews dealt with them more fairly and competently than the dealer, and that's usually where we took our cars while I was growing up. Still, a 90+ year run is pretty good by any standard.
Well, this was quite a shock! Somehow between the last time I drove Two Notch and tonight (12 April 2015), the Waffle House by the I-20 on-ramp has either been completely gutted or completely knocked down and half rebuilt.
It's hard to tell given the night-badness of the pix, but there is a "now hiring" sign up, so they will be back apparently. In the meantime, as far as I know, the WH up the road at the Trenholm Road Extension terminus is still open.
Well, here is this week's closed Radio Shack.
This one was on Two Notch Road in front of Target, and can't have been helped by being so close to Best Buy though I believe this store predates that. In the event, I don't believe I ever shopped this store.
With its drive-through awning and clearly visible bricked over curb-window, this building, currently an urban alternative health store, clearly looks like a dry-cleaner. I have no memory of it, but Google suggests it was J & R Press And Fold Service most recently. However, it would not surprise me to find that it was a number of different cleaners going back, possibly, into the 60s.
