This store has been discussed several times in Have Your Say, but I had not yet gotten around to doing a closing on it. This Bi-Lo was out on the Charleston Highway not too far North of the I-26/I-77 interchange. As mentioned in this State story which I have linked many times, it was part of the package deal moving a number of local Bi-Lo stores to the Food Lion family. I did not drive by during the closing sale, but according to the article, the final day was expected to be 24 January, and as you can see, the Food Lion is now up and running.

Pearle Vision Center / North American Title Loans, 1309 Charleston Highway: 2020   5 comments

Plainly this was some sort of fast food operation before it was a title loan place, but I can't quite identify it from the characteristics of the building. At any rate, North American was there in the last phonebook I have, Feb 2017, and I can't recall seeing the real estate sign out front before, so I'm just going to call the date here as 2020.

UPDATE 20 March 2021: Seems I was wrong about it being fast food -- adding Pearle Vision Center to the post title based on the comments.

I have noticed this place off and on over the years while driving US-1 between I-26 & I-20, because teal is one of the only "non-guy" colors I know, and one that I actually like.

I noticed last weekend that it was closed. The facebook page has nothing since the start of 2020, so I'm just going to use 2020 for the closing date.

Columbia World Outreach Church, 1801 Bush River Road: December 2020   no comments

This one surprises me.

Fuddruckers closed in February 2020, and and was quickly sold to Columbia World Outreach Church for $452,500.

They worked several months getting the place gutted and rebuilt. According to LoopNet

Upgrades include a new roof, all new interior finishes, restrooms, sanctuary to accommodate 192 chairs, classrooms, children's nursery and a large outdoor area.

Unfortunately they did not have long to enjoy it, and the property went back on the market in mid-December 2020.

UPDATE 20 October 2021 -- As mentioned in the comments, this is to become The Gala Event Center:

Win China Buffet, 4464 Devine Street Suite E: Early 2020   1 comment

There was a question on Have Your Say recently as to whether the Chinese buffet in Crossroads Commons (down from the former Bi-Lo) was still open or not.

It's not. As far as I can tell from Yelp, it closed in early 2020. I'm guessing that COVID-19 played a role, but the reviews had been trending downwards for a while.

I don't seem to have a picture of it, but there is one here as part of the LoopNet listing.

PK BBQ, 5423-B Augusta Road: 5 February 2021 (Moved)   4 comments

I noticed this evening that PK BBQ, the follow-on in this convenience store endcap to Kotas was gone.

A little google-work reveals that they have moved to the new Piggly Wiggly complex at 760 Highway 378. I have been meaning to get out there, as I believe that is another former Bi-Lo that I haven't yet done a closing for.

UPDATE 22 February 2021 -- Here is the new location:

God Cares Charities Super Thrift Store: 7121 Parklane Road: 2020   4 comments

This thrift store was the follow-on operation in this Parklane storefront to Marshall's Department Store which moved to the old Fort Jackson Boulevard K-Mart redevelopment sometime in August of 2015 (Just in time for the flood). I'm not sure why Marshall's was giving 7049 Parklane as the address here as 7121 looks OK.

At any rate, the last reviews I can find for this store say "a year ago" (google reviews are annoying that way: Why not be specific?), so I am putting the closing date as "2020".

I was driving through Cedar Terrace the other evening, and noticed that Vaccums Etc had moved out of their store there. It appears they have gone into the old Forest & Grant Photo Imaging storefront by Richland Mall on Forest Drive.

Bi-Lo, 6021 Saint Andrews Road: March 2021   2 comments

This closing was announced so long ago that I have several months-old daylight sets of pictures -- which will turn up eventually. I know I have stopped at this store a number of times over the years, and it was fine, though I did not particularly like coming back out onto Saint Andrews Road going left as I think there is no left arrow at Piney Grove.

In the final event, this is another Bi-Lo destined to be come a Food Lion. This State article, which I have probably linked before, has the details.

I do note that their street sign leaves their product line rather open-ended: "Food &".

(Lots of chatter about this, but I think commenter Andrew gets the hat tip for the closing signs going up).

UPDATE 20 May 2021 -- The Food Lion is up and running now:

D's Shoe Warehouse, 7201 Parklane Road, Suite A: Summer 2020   1 comment

D's Shoe Warehouse moved to Columbia Plaza from Capitol Centre at the end of January 2013. They replaced Awesome Mattress in this endcap location, and apparently remained there until around June of 2020.

At this point, the the storefront has been completely gutted, and it is unclear what, if anything, is on the way.

I find it curious that this plaza is 7201 Parklane, and Columbia Mall is 7201 Two Notch. I think someone made that happen on purpose somehow.

UPDATE 2 September 2021 -- Now Money Barbie cosmetics store:
