I was eating lunch at Grecian Gardens the other day, and noticed that the building next door (North) was vacant. It turns out that this was the former location of Agape Primary Care & Therapy who have now moved down the road into Lexington at 4711 Sunset Boulevard.

Here's another home-cookin' type restaurant I never got around to trying, this one in the old Southern Skillet location in West Columbia across from New Brookland Baptist.

I like comfort food but I tend to eat lunch later than they were open, and it's a long way to drive..

Frame Of Mind, 1520 Main Street Suite 1E, Spring 2015 (moved)   1 comment

Frame Of Mind "South Carolina's only eyewear boutique and art gallery" has moved from 1520 Main Street across the river to 140 State Street.

I'm not exactly sure when the move was, but sometime after 18 January 2015 when these pictures were taken.

As a four-eyes myself, I'm always glad to see that not everyone prefers contacts.

I had meant to do this post before Free Comic Book Day which was 2 May 2015, but that was not to be.

At any rate, as reported by commenter James R, Comic Nirvana has moved from in front of Best Buy in Lexington to The Smith Centre just south of the I-20 Waffle House.

I have to say it's not an easy location to find. They have listing on the roadside marquee for the office plaza, but actually locating the store is a bit of a puzzle. In the event, you can't see it from the default parking area in front, you have to drive around back and duck into a little back nook. Hopefully they will have some more directional signs up soon, along with their main storefront sign. In fact, they may by now as these pictures are a week or two old.

Super Dollar, 2271 Sunset Boulevard: April 2015 (not closed)   6 comments

As commenter James R reports, Super Dollar in Sunset Court across from Grecian Gardens has closed shop. This store was the follow-on operation to Fred's which closed in June of 2012. I'm not sure when Super Dollar opened, but I believe the storefront was vacant for a good while.

UPDATE 3 May 2015: Commenter Brandon Brown reports this store as not closed, so I am going with that in the title as an update.

'Tis The Season, 315 State Street: 1 February 2015   1 comment

I was driving to Parkland Plaza the other day, and noticed this old house on State Street had closeout signs up. It had never caught my eye before, so I wasn't sure what business had closed, but the Christmas tree in the upstairs window is a pretty good clue. This was local Christmas decor shop 'Tis The Season, and their Facebook page announced the closing for 1 Feburay with the note that the business is going online.

Fast Food / Greek Restaurant / Dish & Design Catering, 420 Meeting Street: 2010s   6 comments

This small building in Capitol Shopping Center at the corner of Sunset Boulevard and Meeting Street in West Columbia has been a number of things over the years.

Judging from the look of the place, it started as some sort of fast food chain outlet, but I am unable to recall which. Sometime after that, I believe I recall a Greek restaurant setting up there. Most recently it was Dish & Desing Catering until sadly the owner passed away and they had to close.

These pictures were taken not too long after Halloween, as you might infer from the deflated Jack O'Lantern somebody left in the parking lot.

The Free Times reports that this State Street loft has closed as of early December.

I really like comedy and make the trek to Charleston fairly often for improv, so I don't know why I never made it across the river. It's funny, I guess.

I was unaware of Technesis on Meeting Street, but commenter Frank notes:

Technesis at 536 Meeting St in West Columbia has closed.
This was the followup operation to Microprice around 2010.
The owner sold the customers to another IT company out of Charlotte and closed the doors.

It is nice that the customers were taken care of in the closing.

Commenter James reports the closing of Marpie's Antiques & Collectibles on Augusta Road.

This is an interesting location in a building which is shared with Avon and has nice little family plot outside. The peeling marquee sign reveals part of the name of a previous business underneath, but I am unable to make it out. It appears to be
