Fast Cash Payday Advance, 4464 Devine Street: 2010   11 comments

Posted at 12:46 am in Uncategorized






Here's yet another Payday loan storefront that is no longer with us. This one is in the Bi-Lo/Staples plaza at the confluence of Devine, Cross Hill and Fort Jackson Boulevard. (Curiously, this strip mall does not seem to have a name, or at least not one on its marquee.)

Not that this closing leaves the place without a loan operation -- this is where Capitol Loan Office moved to from Main Street. And also note that if you lease this space, you apparently get a free MoneyGram neon sign, which is kind of nifty.

  2. Staples and the Gamecock BiLo are still going strong. Next to Staples, there's a space where you could build up to app. 20K square feet at Crossroads Commons.

  3. When the new strip mall opens with "Whole Foods", it's gonna put a hurtin' on Bi-Lo and Piggly Wiggly up the road..and I REALLY HOPE it puts a big hurt on the Garners Ferry Walmart!
    Walmart is over-rated, and all there things are made in China.

  5. C'mon, Sc! Whole Paycheck works on a whole 'nother demographic from the BiLo or WallyWorld crowd. If anything, it'll hurt Earth Fare.

    Personally, I never have been into the whole, "It's less efficient food production, so its better" mindset.

    I mean, farmer's markets are far cheaper and better support the local economy. Win-win in my book.

  6. The new Whole Foods I'm sure will do quite well.. just look at the Health Food Store up on Devine.. it's crowed all the time. Most but not all the younger people and those that like fresh produce will shop at Whole Foods. The old farts and those that dont like change, will continue to buy their stuff from the Chinese based Walmart, and places like the high priced Bi-Low and Piggly Wiggly. As Bob Dylan said " The Times, they are a changin'"... I like the old ways for sure as far as music and how things used to be..but until someone builds a "Time Machine", we'll have to deal with it.

  8. I think Whole Foods will have a wider draw range than BiLo. BiLo has remodeled this store (Crossroads Commons, 4464 Devine Street) so I believe they are prepared to compete but at the same time, Whole Foods's target demographic is a slightly demographic than Bi-Lo

    It's been discussed elsewhere that Walmart #4379 (1326 Bush River Road) isn't open 24/7...well Walmart #1286 (7520 Garners Ferry Road) isn't open 24/7 either...Walmart #4320 opened up in Batesburg/Leesville the same day as #4379 and it isn't 24/7, either.

  9. whole foods will affect the Earthfare and the Piggly Wiggly on Devine St and the Publix and the Fresh Market in Trenholm Plaza ( I believe that is the name). Bilo will be slightly affected for less than a month. The Piggly Wiggly and the Publix will be slightly affected for a few months with some permanent lost customers. The Earthfare and the Fresh Market will have the biggest loss. I am eager to see how well Whole Foods does. It just doesn't seem like the right location to me. I have worked for Kroger for 12 years continuous and a total of 14 and I got to say I have thought about possibly looking at employment there but I am sure I will stay with Kroger

  10. I have heard that Whole Foods treat their employees VERY well..and pay them really well too. My roommate worked for Kroger for a long time also at the Irmo store and then the St. Andrew store til he left and went to Walmart back in 1999.
    Columbia needs to get with the times, and have something else other than what's been around for the past 200 years.

  11. Whole Foods likes to customize their store to be adaptive to the community. They also operate at a 3% profit margin which is much larger than most grocery stores operate with.

    I am willing to do what I can to support companies that treat their employees well.
