Archive for the ‘Two Notch Road’ tag
I'm away from my phonebooks right now and am not entirely sure when this Pontiac botique closed, but this picture is from June, so I'll say Spring 2015.
Now Pontiac and this little strip mall are just a hop-skip-and-jump away from I-20 and Sandhill, but when I was growing up, Pontiac was so far away we hardly knew it existed..
I was driving Two Notch this evening, and noticed that the Sansbury Eye Center by FedEx Office was closed. A closer look at the door revealed that this office has moved to 2313 Beltline, next to the Subway.
In fact, I had noticed the new sign for Sansbury on that building, but since I did not realize it was a move and not a new office, I didn't bother to take any pictures. I'll get a few next time I drive by. I was struck by how big this Two Notch space is -- I don't think the Beltline location is anywhere near as extensive.
These pictures were taken in mid July 2015, and I expect the store is actually closed by now, though I have not driven by there since.
I believe this building in the Dentsville K Mart parking lot was built as a Krystal in their first wave of expansion into SC. At the time they were playing up their differences from other fast food outlets with the main thing I recall being that they had a couple of non-standard vegetable offerings like fried mushrooms and maybe okra. For some reason, the chain never thrived here and now has no Columbia stores and very few South Carolina stores. Of course now their slogan is apparently Stupid Good, so they've got that going for them..
Pearle was here at least through the February 2005 phonebook, but was gone by the February 2008 one.
I don't get out to Pontiac very often, so I was only vaguely aware of this little strip mall near Pontiac House Of Pizza, but it looks like there are a couple of vacancies right now.
(Hat tip to commenter cheryl)
I noticed this vacant retail slot in the little strip mall near Sesqui and Maurice's on which I've done several posts.
Judging by their Facebook page this fashion store probably closed around the start of 2014.
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.
