Agape Hair Salon, 2000 Leesburg Road: 2013 (Moved)   no comments

I noticed this vacant building on my most recent drive down Leesburg Road, obviously at one time it was the site of Agape Hair Salon, which google establishes has moved down the road to 1701 Leesburg Road. (Yelp puts the date as 2013).

It's tough to see anything going into this space without a major upfit. I suspect it will eventually be torn down.

I noticed this closed variety store on Leesburg Road last weekend. I am unable to find the full name of the place, but google streetview confirms the sign has been that way since 2018.

Jolidan African Hair Braiding, 1314 Leesburg Road Suite R: 2020   no comments

I was at Pizza Palace last weekend, and noticed that the Jolidan African Hair Braiding salon in the same plaza had closed. Given how hard COVID-19 has been on all salons & barbers, I wouldn't be surprised if that were the case here.

Carquest Auto Parts / Advance Auto Parts, 909 Leesburg Road: Mid 2016   1 comment

I'm guessing that what happened here is that Advanced Auto Parts bought out Carquest Auto Parts and consolidated this store into their existing location at 7316 Garners Ferry Road. At any rate, I don't think this was an Advance Auto Parts for long, if at all, because the label scars exactly match the Carquest signage visible in this Google StreetView, and Carquest is listed in the 2015 phonebook.

Shell PC & Networking Solutions, LLC, 1314-B Leesburg Road: 2010   1 comment

Here's a vacant little Leesburg Plaza storefront. It's not too clear initially what it was:

So let's take that sign and equalize it:

And then flip it:

OK then -- based on phonebooks, it looks like Shell PC & Networking Solutions probably closed shop in 2010.

This garden center behind the old Parklane Seafood/Flamingo Club building started off in the South Carolina Farmers' Market on Bluff Road, and moved over to Leesburg when the Farmers' Market was redeveloped.

The Thrifty Closet, 1314 Leesburg Road Suite P: Late 2000s   no comments

I was unable to find this little thrift store (a few spaces to the left of the package store) listed in any of my at-home phonebooks, but I'm guessing it closed 2009-ish.

Leesburg Road ABC Package Store + Leesburg Road Party Shop, 1314 Leesburg Road Suite J: 2000s   7 comments

I had thought these two separate stores when I took the pictures, but closer inspection leads me to believe that while they may have been operated as seperately licensed businesses for ABC reasons, they shared one door (the door on the right of the Party Store side appears to be blocked off).

Both were in the little plaza at the corner of Leesburg Road and Greenlawn Drive which also housed the former Leonardo's Screen Printing and still very much open Pizza Palace.

Parklane Seafood, 925 Leesburg Road: 2012 (catering only)   10 comments

I'd never been entirely sure if Parklane Seafood on Leesburg Road were open or closed, but judging from the fact my most recent trip through the area showed the building up for sale, and some recent comments here, I think it is now clear that the restaurant side of the business is closed while the catering side continues.

This building was the old Flamingo Club. It also appears that the back lot has recently been converted into a garden center.

Update 23 April 2018 -- As commenter Rick notes, this building has been stripped of the canopy and door facade that probably dated back to Dick's Flamingo Club:

It looks like the building is prepped to rent as some sort of three suite office.

J & H Grocery, 5300 Leesburg Road: 2000s(?)   6 comments

Posted at 11:20 pm in Uncategorized

I ran across this old country grocery the other day at the eastern intersection of Leesburg Road and Old Leesburg Road. I haven't been able to match the name and address in google to have any idea when it closed -- Just looking at it, it could be any time from 1970 to last week. (Although he "hours" sign on the door does look more modern than 1970). Anyway, it's the kind of place where you can imagine a barefoot kid walking in on a hot day for an RC Cola and a Moon Pie (and dropping peanuts into the soda..).
