Here's a brick industrial building under the water-tower out on Two Notch near the Spring Valley area. This LoopNet listing has an aerial view.
For several years, Crawford listed this building and a location in Lugoff, but in the 2013/2014 directory only a fax number is given. It seems that a North Carolina location has the domain name, so perhaps that is the headquarters now.
UPDATE 25 July 2013: I've learned that the company has definitely moved to Lugof, and the North Carolina company is not connected with it.
I'm not too sure about this storefront across from the Big Lots plaza on Two Notch and just to the left of the old The Crate location. Google reveals a couple of places that I'm pretty sure are still there and not in that particular unit. It might have been 123Imout (love that name!), or it might not have.
This building on Two Notch Road near Alpine has a sad history, as it started as the practice of respected Children's dentist Doctor Harry Sunshine who was tragically killed in a hit and run accident in 2001 as described in this newspaper image.
Since then, it has apparently been a number of medical offices, most lately for Griffin Clinic Of Chiropractic who occupied the space until earlier this year.
I must say that while the building is not very impressive from the front, the back is quite interesting, and looks out over a fairly good view.
While Very's hangs on in this little strip mall on Two Notch near Columbia Mall, very little else does. I believe this suite to the left of Very's may have been a hydroponics store in the fairly recent past, but most recently it was an Internet Sweepstakes operation. I saw enough of them in Florida last year that I finally got curious and checked one out -- As far as gambling goes, it is even more boring than bingo. You pay some money, get a certain number of sweepstakes entries and just hit the button on the machine until all your stake is gone. Apparently here in SC, the memory of the Video Poker era is still strong enough that the powers that be put the quietus on the whole nascent Internet Sweepstakes industry pretty quickly, before most of these places really got into operation.
Of course there's still always Publisher's Clearing House. I think I'm pretty much a shoe-in this time -- I just got a letter informing me that I am guaranteed to be a winner if my entry is selected..
As I was driving Two Notch last night I noticed the roadside sign announcing the imminent closing of this fashion and hair braiding operation in the Arcadia Lakes Shopping Center. Looks like they are having a pretty good sale.
This Chinese buffet next to Big Lots on Two Notch had been a fixture for many years, and I expected that it would be for many more. I can't think of anything that changed in the area recently, but in the event, apparently not.
I've done a number of closings on various Quiznos around town as you can see if you check the Alphabetical Closings list. This one is just east of the Brickyard Shopping Center, and in fact has stoplight access to Two Notch from there if you go around the back way. I don't have a lot to say about Quiznos. As I observed in another post, I ate at one once and it was OK, though nothing that drove me to seek out another.

I noticed a few weeks ago that the Express Check Advance adjacent to Tom's Wines & Spirits had taken their marquee down. I thought that the place might be vacant for a while, but just a few days later I saw a new sign for a Moneygram location which is apparently already up and running.
This long little strip mall on Two Notch between the mall and Arcadia Lakes Drive has had more than its share of little storefront finance offices. I know of at least three, though they probably did not all operate at the same time. This one seems to have closed up shop about a year after its suite-mate, Cash N Go moved out.
I still miss when this Two Notch lot was Dick Dyer Toyota and I could drop my car off and walk home. Since then, they've tried a couple of concepts there. I think at one point it was a scooter store, then they had the Mitsubishi & Suzuki lot. I'm not sure how to characterize what happend to that dealership. The sign says it "moved" to Love Automotive, but I'm guessing a change in franchaise went with that. At any rate it now appears that the Dick Dyer Body Shop will be moving from the bottom corner of the lot into the main building.
