NBSC / Synovus, 1311 Pendleton Street: 29 May 2020   5 comments

Posted at 11:24 pm in closing









This old Synovus branch at the corner of Sumter & Pendleton Streets really never made an impression on me. I'm sure I couldn't have told you it was there had you asked, and the building dates to 1972, so I would have walked by there many times while I was on campus.

My phonebooks aren't really helping me to say when it closed, but obviously long enough ago that it's already looking a bit dingy, and the lot has already been rented out for parking.

You can see it with the NBSC branding still up in this LoopNet listing.

UPDATE 25 August 2020: I forgot to put a date on the post title. Since the NBSC ==> Synovus reflagging happened in 2018, I'm going with that.

(Hat tip to commenter Dan R.)

UPDATE 4 February 2021 -- I went by the drive-through window, and a definite closing date was posted there, so I have updated the post title date from "2018" to "29 May 2020":


Also adding the map icon.

  1. I've probably walked by this location hundreds of times and always wondered why they had not sold out and used the land for something else, being so close to campus. Seems like prime real estate.

  2. Before the bank was there, this was a Gulf station.

  3. I think it was a Majik Market @1980.

  4. I'm bummed because I could just walk there to pay various Richland County taxes.

  5. I was at USC from 1975 to 1979 and this was were I banked. NBSC started in Sumter and was headquartered there at the time. No ATMs back then so I had to walk over on Friday afternoon and cash a check if I wanted money over the weekend. It was the closes bank to to the six pack dorms back then.
