I had not noticed that All South Federal Credit Union on Bluff Road had closed, but apparently it has been for some time. As of yet, the lot is not re-leased, so the ATM continues in service.

Apparently First Horizon is merging with Iberiabank, which may have something to do with this location closing. It looks like there are two left in town, on Main Street and in Trenholm Plaza. The Trenholm location is in a building across from Starbucks and is a building that has reflagged several times in recent years.

This location is in the Publix plaza at the corner of Two Notch and Sparkleberry. Commenter Thomas reports that it was previously a Wachovia.

Wells Fargo ATM, 657 Bush River Road: December 2021   no comments

I thought I had some pictures of this vanished ATM with the various closings which have happened on this lot, but in the event I don't seem to. At any rate, this was a stand-alone ATM, not associated with any branch. I used it a time or two before I noticed the credit-union ATM up the hill, after which I stopped paying the fee. I believe it post-dated the Kmart though I can't say for sure. Interestingly, google gives the ATM a Bush River Road address rather than the Arrowwood Road address of the main building.

Wells Fargo, 4800 Garners Ferry Road: Spring 2021   2 comments

To the best of my memory, I was only in this bank once. And it was fine, you know -- a bank.

On their window sign, they try to spin this closing as a move, but of course the branch farther up the road was already there. Hopefully the staff were able to go to other branches, but this is a closing. The sign is a bit unusual as well in that it doesn't give a date, which these things usually do.

I'm not sure how this address can be 4800, as this is the first block of Garners Ferry Road, but that transition area has always been a bit odd.

Regions Bank, 149 Columbiana Drive: 13 November 2020   no comments

I have to admit I've always thought Regions Bank is a pretty lame name, though it sounded less derivitive after NationsBank reflagged to Bank Of America. That aside, I know nothing about the chain, other than, like most, it is shedding branches.

I got these pictures of the Harbison location back in September -- I'll try to remember to follow-up with some pictures of the vacant building when I'm out there in the daytime again.

I never did get any good daylight shots of this place, but the First Citizens in the North Main/River Drive triangle has gone to ATM only. Given they will still be paying rent/lease/taxes on the whole lot, I don't expect that situation to last too long.

SCU State Credit Union, 9219 Two Notch Road: October 2020 (Moved)   no comments

Well, this is a bit disappointing. This credit union with ATM in the Big Lots plaza has been one of my go-to places in this area for no-fee Co-Op ATM withdrawals. It is one of the places I mentally marked as "safe", as it does not unexpectedly give $50 bills (which nobody wants, why does anyone do that!).

The new location seems quite a ways from here, and I don't see how it will be convenient for the members who use this branch.

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

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.

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.

Here's another closed bank branch, this one on Sunset Boulevard near Target. I like the view out of the back of the lot. Even though the area has built up considerably, there are still large undeveloped areas in Lexington County.

The de-branching of American banks continues with this Wells Fargo location at the southeast corner of Forest Drive and Beltline Boulevard being the latest example to feature here.

I had actually been inside this bank, as my sister and I took care of some shared business there. It was what you would expect, and a perfectably acceptable experience. The place is also actually a little easier to get in and out of than you would think, as there is a back exit to a road paralleling Forest drive behind the mirror buildings that brings you back out at a more convenient location.

UPDATE 1 May 2019: Updated tags.

UPDATE 15 August 2019 -- As mentioned in the comments, this building has now been razed:
