I'm not sure when this little takeout storefront co-located with the garage on Fairlane closed, but it's in the February 2015-2016 phonebook, and I think I would have noticed it previously if it had been closed longer than a few months, so I'm tagging it as winter 2015. Reviews are rather mixed, but they'd been there for a good while, so they must have been doing something right.

UPDATE 25 May 2016 -- Now Saffron, an Indian/Chinese/Mexican takeout storefront:

Columbia School of Karatedoo, 604 Meeting Street: 2013   2 comments

Posted at 1:41 am in closing

I noticed this little dojo on Meeting Street back in October when I was checkout out Conumdrum. It looks like maybe the name changed to simply Columbia School of Karate for a while, but the last phonebook listing is in the 2013 book.

Conumdrum opened in the space formerly occupied by Bloomin' Idiots garden center, and based on the name, I reported it as a drumming studio when I did the closing for that business.

In reality, though I never got to check it out personally, it seems to have been a nice little eclectic music venue, and a five year run is not bad for a site neither in The Vista nor Five Points.

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..

Fast Food / Greek Restaurant / Dish & Design Catering, 420 Meeting Street: 2010s   1 comment

This small building in Capitol Shopping Center at the corner of Sunset Boulevard and Meeting Street in West Columbia ha
s 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. Somet
ime after that, I believe I recall a Greek restaurant setting up there. Most recently it was Dish & Desing Catering u
ntil 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 t
he parking lot.

Red Door Tavern, 134 1/2 State Street: 6 December 2014   1 comment

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

Here's another Pig closing from last year. This one is on the East side of US-1 not too far from the Barnyard flea market. Interestingly, the address is Lexington, though I did not think Lexington started that far South.

Though several recently closed Pigs have become Bi-Los, there is no sign of another tenant for this one yet.
