Brookgreen Gardens Nights Of A Thousand Candles 2022, Brookgreen Gardens: 14 December 2022   no comments

Posted at 12:32 am in closing

I'm glad I saw this year's Nights of 1000 Candles last week when it was still pleasant outside. I know the folks who saw it tonight were probably brittle with the cold.

Since I couldn't get any weekend tickets, I went on a Wednesday this year,and my impression is it was a little more subdued, but there was still a pretty good crowd. I didn't notice any big changes from last year, but as always, it was a very impressive display, and a nice way to spend an evening. I believe they are sold out for the rest of the year, but if you do find you can get tickets, I recommend it.

Michael's Cleaners, 7000 Garners Ferry Road: 31 October 2022   2 comments

Posted at 11:19 pm in closing








Here's another drycleaners which has recently shut down. Michael's was in a somewhat oddly situated lot in the midst of all the intersection crazyness at the Garners Ferry Road/Leesburg Road/I-77 interchange. It struck my notice a few years ago because their signboard was advertising a computer position, and I had to wonder what that would entail.

From their closing sign, it apppears that Halloween was their last day of operation.

Ivy & Leo, 4840 Forest Drive Suite 15: December 2022 (Moving)   1 comment

Posted at 11:01 pm in closing




Ivy & Leo in Trenholm Plaza is moving leftwards a few suites into the slot formerly occupied by Simply Mac. This lateral move will let Publix expand their store into the vacated adjacent space. This has long needed doing, as that Publix was crammed into a former A&P slot, and is much smaller than their typical store. I like Publix in general, but have always felt cramped when I shop this one.

The Post & Courier has the story here.

(Hat tip to commenter Larry)

Update 20 July 2023 -- This storefront is now gone:

I've got a note from Godaddy that they will be upgrading my host soon, so there may be some downtime ahead for the site.

Or it could all go perfectly.
