Bob Andrews Motors, 5601 Two Notch Road: Early 2015   4 comments

Posted at 12:43 am in Uncategorized







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.

Waffle House, 7505 Two Notch Road: Spring 2015 (temporary)   8 comments

Posted at 1:49 am in Uncategorized



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.

Radio Shack, 10210 Two Notch Road Suite A: March 2015   4 comments

Posted at 12:56 am in Uncategorized




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.

J & R Press And Fold Service, 3400 Two Notch Road: 1990s(?)   3 comments

Posted at 12:23 am in Uncategorized







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.

Combat Mixed Martial Arts / 1705 Bar & Grill / Uptown Lounge / etc, 3717 Pine Belt Road: 2010s   1 comment

Posted at 2:17 am in Uncategorized






This lot is on that odd little section of Pine Belt at Two Notch where you have a fork in the road, with two-way traffic on both sides of the fork. I suspect originally Pine Belt came out to Two Notch on the fork where these buildings are and that later the second fork and light were added for a straight shot across to Cushman, but it's been this way as long as I can recall, so I could be wrong.

It seems to me that the red building was most recently some sort of night club, but I don't think much has stuck to either building on this property in recent years and now both buildings are for sale together.

Given that this is not the best location in the world, it will be interesting to see what happens here.

Custom Car Stereo, 9557 Two Notch Road Suite O: 2014   4 comments

Posted at 12:11 am in Uncategorized




This little strip mall is on the downhill side (north) of Two Notch near Sesqui. Custom Car Stereo is listed in the February 2014 phonebook, so it either closed in 2014 or 2013 after listings closed.

Discount Cars & Trucks, Inc., 7450 Two Notch Road: Fall 2014   no comments

Posted at 11:29 pm in Uncategorized



Discount Cars & Trucks was the follow-on operation to Go Used Tires in this old Esso building in Dentsville.

I have to say I can't actually recall seeing any cars or trucks there, though I know there must have been some.

Kwagga, 108 Columbia Northeast Drive Suite G: 15 December 2014   12 comments

Kwagga is apparently the Afrikaans name for the Quagga, an extinct South African Zebra, and the place itself is now extinct as well.

This was the followup operation to The Puddlin' Duck, and commenter Joelc who notes that it was a nice place, but suffered the same problems as The Duck with the location.

It wouldn't hurt Fortune Square to buy some light bulbs.

Cutler & Associates, Inc., 5717 Two Notch Road: 2014   no comments

I did a previous closing for this building when it was Lexus Of Columbia.

Insurance brokers Cutler & Associates were the follow-up business in this location. Sadly, it appears that Mr. Cutler has passed on after what sounds like a full and fruitful life.

Jiffy Lube, 7452 Two Notch Road: November 2014   5 comments

Posted at 1:32 am in Uncategorized







Well, you've seen the signs, now you can get $10.00 off.

I went to this Jiffylube near the I-20 interchange on Two Notch several times. While sitting in the heat and watching traffic up and down Two Notch is no garden vista, the deck was nice as it got you out of the waiting room and away from the TV.

The siting of this store was interesting as it was directly next to a Precision Tune, just as the Knox Abbott location is almost directly across the street from one.
