99¢ & UP (99 Cents & UP), 1945 Decker Boulevard #16: 2010   1 comment

Well, this closing lets me exercise the Cent (¢) sign we discussed just yesterday!

You can't fault this place for locking themselves into anything -- as long as they had one item in the store that was less than a dollar, they were within their operating parameters. Apparently it didn't help. Decker Center is one of a number of little strip malls down the west side of Decker Boulevard, many nowdays run by immigrants -- Decker, in fact, is designated as Columbia's "International Corridor".

According to this PDF 99 Cents had a 2010 business license, but I'm going to say it didn't make it too far into 2010, because I've been noticing the empty storefront for a while now.

Does anyone remember if this is the strip mall that had Columbia's first CD store?

  1. The CD store was in 2205 Decker, then moved to Two Notch where the Very's restaurant is located. It might have been the first on this side of town (@1988), but one had previously opened (I think it was called "Hitts" or something like that) in that mostly abandoned strip on Bush River where Circuit City used to be.
