When I was in Triangle City a couple of weekends ago, and trying to turn around and go back for some pictures of a place I had just driven past, I noticed this empty building on C Avenue. Some googling suggests it was an interior design operation. The website is still active here. Since their picture shows the Metanoia signage, I guess that was the DBA name.

I noticed this former garage in Triangle City on the Charleston Highway last weekend. I can't say exactly when it closed, as I don't see any phonebook listings for it, at least under the marquee name, although Google suggests it might also have been Southern Diesel Truck & Trailer Repair, or a Meineke Car Care location.

As commenter Jason notes, this McDonald's on Sunset Boulevard near the I-26 interchange has closed for remodeling. This is something a number of the local McDonald's have done recently, including ones on Garners Ferry, Hardscrabble, Two Notch and Decker.

I don't expect this

but you never know.

Medical home oxygen supplier Aerocare has moved out of this Sunset Boulevard plaza (which also housed Riveras Mexican) and over into Cayce on State Street south of Knox Abbott. Their new location is the second building in the pictures above.

I haven't driven by in a while, but the Sunset storefront was still empty last time I checked.

I noticed this vacant pool hall on Sunset near New Brookland Baptist a week or so ago. They list in this years phonebook, and I think it would have caught my eye if it had been closed earlier, so I'm going with "Early 2017" for the closing date.

That's one buff & veiny looking chicken...

UPDATE 12 April 2017: I had the closing as "Early 2017" since they are in the Feb 2017 phonebook, but based on the comments, I've put the date back to 2014, which is quite a difference!

Absolute Title Loans, 1410 Sunset Boulevard: 2012   14 comments

I was wondering what business this nice little old house next Triangle Lock & Safe on Sunset was. Looking at the pictures I took, I couldn't even get a street number (for some reason I didn't get out for a closer look at the time), but google maps came through and identified it as 1410 Sunset and the former site of yet another of the Midlands title loans operations. They listed in the Feb 2012 phonebook, but not the Feb 2013 one, so I am tagging the closing date as 2012.

Commenter Bobby reports this location closed as of today (16 February 2017). It's not a surprise as it's been in the offing for several months. As to what's next, as The State reported in December:

In the spring, the location will become home to the second area Charleston-based East Bay Deli. East Bay opened its first area location at 1426 Main St. in Columbia’s The Hub apartment complex downton on Nov. 14.

I used to eat at this location every few months. I liked to get the Pumpkin soup in the winter. Along with a bread bowl, it was a very nice meal. I enjoyed the white chocolate macadamia nut cookies as well; something they don't have at Panera. They used to have a pepper grinder at the condiment station that was nice as well.

UPDATE 18 February 2017 -- Well, they certainly started into the remodeling quickly:

I was vaguely aware of this place, but never got around to checking it out. The stone facade is something you saw on a number of buildings from the 70s -- I don't think anyone does that anymore.

Apparently this little plaza was the site of a bit of martial history.

Griffin Homes & Properties, 1004 Charleston Highway: 2010   no comments

I was driving towards Triangle City a few weekends ago, and noticed a blank business sign in front of a nice brick house fairly near the intersection of Charleston Highway and Knox Abbott. As usual, when I actually get out and about, it was a good ways into the afternoon, so I was shooting against the sun, and it's a poor shot.

As best I can determine the only business here in recent times was Griffin Homes & Properties. Perhaps before that, it was still a residence.

The current location of Bogart's in West Columbia has been purchased, and the building will be torn down to furnish more parking for the adjacent Zesto. According to West Metro News, the owner is looking for another location, but as of late August had not found one.
