United Auto Sales moved to this location in 2012 after their old location on Forest Drive was torn down to build Cook Out. Although Google is labeling this location as Temporarily Closed, I think it is more likely that United has shut down for good after a 12 year run here.

I was never really aware of Hitch RV on Garners Ferry though I must have seen it driving past many times. LoopNet has a picture of the lot in operation, and gives the size of the place as 4.63 acres, which is a pretty good plot. They also say the building dates to 1972, while I might have placed it earlier than that.

I don't believe I've ever been to a National Tire & Battery, though I see they spun off from Sears in 2003, so I guess you could say I did business with them in a roundabout way through that Diehard connection.

As far as I can tell from the Google reviews, this location closed around three months ago, so I'm calling it late 2003. It seems like a pretty decent location, so I would not be surprised to see another repair operation set up shop here.

Stronghold Gym, 5910 Garners Ferry Road: 16 August 2023 (Moved)   no comments

Stronghold Gym took over in the Woodhill outparcel which used to be Hampton Hill Athletic Club sometime late in 2016.

On my last visit to Jimmy Johns, I noticed that they were no longer there, and the space had been taken over by an expansion of Life Storage.

It turns out they have moved to Trenholm Road, into the former location of The Cat Clinic (which itself moved in 2018).

The building, below, sat, partially converted, for so long, that I had started to thing plans for a gym there had fallen through due to the pandemic (and I suspect that *was* a factor in the delay), but, as you can see on their site, the move was completed on 16 August, and the facility is now open.

Days Inn & Suites, 7300 Garners Ferry Road: Spring 2023 (Closed for renovations)   no comments

This Days Inn is probably most notable for being one of the few places in the area with an indoor pool. That aside, the place has apparently been badly in need of a refit for years now -- something it is currently getting.

A1A Insurance, 7234 Garners Ferry Road: 2023 (Rebranded/Moved)   no comments

I've wondered about this place over they years, and a couple of times actually had the impression that it was closed, and stopped to get some pictures. That appears not to have been the case until recently. It's an odd, boxy building with opaque glass windows,and I don't think I would have cared to work there, unless you can see out better than you can see in. The place is now being demolished, and commenter Larry says a 7 Brew Coffee is to be built there.

As far as I can tell, A1A has rebranded, or was bought-by/merged-with Covenant Insurance Group, and is now at 7356 Garners Ferry.

Circle K, 6122 Garners Ferry Road: February 2023 (Pump remodel?)   4 comments

I keep meaning to go by and get some better pix and try to see what's really going on, but it looks to be the case that the whole pump plaza of the Circle K just east of Woodhill is being remodeled. I think I saw the actual store still open in the background, but I couldn't tell for sure.

Anyone know the story?

The Seafood Academy, 7535 Garners Ferry Road Suite G: 2019   2 comments

The Seafood Academy started in the old TGI Friday's location in Richland Mall in, I believe, 2014. After that, in 2016, they moved to East Pointe Plaza on Garners Ferry Road.

I'm unclear exactly when they closed, but I can't find any reviews later than 2018, so I will round up a bit and say 2019.

The suite is currently being refitted as a blood plasma center.

(I'm pretty sure this came up recently, but looking at the comments, I'm not seeing who it was to give a hat tip.)

This pet supply business in Landmark Square appears to have shut down late last year, and a new, also pet oriented, follow-on operation, The Pet Shop is about to open there, if it has not already.

The store at Shoppes at Woodhill is now part of the ongoing Bed Bath & Beyond collapse. I don't know exactly when this store will close, but the signs are already up, so I'll just mark it for this month in the post title.

I believe I have been in Bed Bath & Beyond about three times, and have never bought anything there. I guess there was a lot of that going 'round..
