Archive for the ‘Two Notch Road’ tag
I'm guessing about the closing date here. The last post on their Facebook page is from February 2016, but I think the closing is much more recent than that given the signs are still up and the fixtures still in place.
I noticed the other day that the Doctor's office on the west side of the Farm Bureau building is becoming First Class Bar & Grill.
UPDATE 23 June 2016: Well, as established in the comments, this bar is not going into the doctor's office. I was misled by the little sign on the side of the building with the office name -- it actually is an arrow pointing to the other side. So what was this place? Looking at the door in the west side with the new 'A' restaurant sticker on it, I see that it calls out the space behind the door as unit B & C. With that information, I see that unit B, at least, was once Serenity Day Spa
Synergy Wellness & Weight Loss / Northeast Animal Clinic, 10202 Two Notch Road / 10200 Two Notch Road : 27 May / 1 June 2016 (moved) 1 comment
I'm not sure what is being built in front of Target at 10200/10202 Two Notch, but the former Synergy Wellness & Weight Loss building has already been razed and the former Northeast Animal Clinic building is aparently not long for the world. Both businesses will continue in new locations, Synergy at 10607 Two Notch and Northeast eventually at 10171 Two Notch, but currently at 7352 Parklane.
You can see good views of the razed building at this Google Streetview link.
Here's the new Synergy location. Pretty sure from the look that it's a former Russell Jeffcoat:

This closing is a fallout from the chain's bankruptcy which includes the shuttering of 113 of its 739 US stores:
If you're a teenager shopping for clothes, you're probably not going to Aeropostale, a fact that became glaringly obvious when the apparel retailer filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection Wednesday.
Maybe they shouldn't have put stale in their name..
The location of trees in front of this Sandhill storefront, and the desire not to be in the window's reflection made getting good pictures iffy, but you can see the standardized Store Closing and discount placards that show up at many of these managed sell-outs.

It's curious since I drive this stretch of road several times a week that I have no memory of ever seeing this building in operation as Gandy Auto Sales, but Google Street View has the image, and the phonebook confirms they were there at least since 2008.
There appears to be some sort of land clearing going on in the lot just adajacent to this one on the east.
As I believe I've said before, I think the name of this Two Notch couples' store is about a syllable short..
I remember once finding a whole joke book of "Ford" (ie: Model-T) jokes at my aunt's house once. At this remove, I can only recall two of them:
Q: Why do all new Fords now have to be painted red?
A: Because the law says any tin can filled with gasoline must be red.
Q: Why is the Ford the only car to be mentioned in The Bible?
A: Because no other car can ascend to Heaven "on high".
I'm not sure new cars are better than the Model-T, but jokes have come a long way.
This is another place I had meant to go by in the daytime, but I was there when I was..
The Ape Hanger was the leftmost of the three very similar buildings in this little hardluck plaza on Two Notch a bit east of Fontaine. It was the followup operation to The Bargain Warehouse.
From what I can tell, they were a moped, motorcycle and ATV store. The Bargain Warehouse signage was still up late in 2011, so apparently they opened in 2012, and their last Facebook posting is 20 November 2012, so I'm going to say they closed early in 2013.
It seems a number of toner refill stores have closed recently. This one, at the corner of Two Notch Road and O'Neil Court closed, I believe, late in 2015. I am pretty sure it was not flood related as this side of Two Notch was relatively unscathed.
The last time I needed toner for my LaserJet 1300, I had the cartridge refilled at Forest Park, but when I needed it again last week, I found a new cartridge on Amazon for under $30, so perhaps the business model works less well than it used to.
