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.
Combat Mixed Martial Arts / 1705 Bar & Grill / Uptown Lounge / etc, 3717 Pine Belt Road: 2010s 1 comment
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.
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.
I have to say I can't actually recall seeing any cars or trucks there, though I know there must have been some.
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.
