This CVS was a fairly short & straight shot away from the one across the street from Parkland Plaza, which may have been a factor in the decision to shut it down. It also can't have helped that it is across the street from a new Wal-Mart Neighboorhod Market with a drive-through pharmacy.

This small furniture & decor store opened here in 2021, moving from Chapin to Meeting Street in West Columbia. Unfortunately with the challenging retail, supply chain and rising restock price environment, they will be closing sometime this summer. From their Facebook, it sounds as though it will not be too long from now though no date is given -- I am going to assume late this month for the post title.

The State has some more details.

According to The Free Times this West Columbia bakery closed on July 9 with the retirement of the owner. I have not driven over there since then, but also according to the article, a new deli-bakery, Breads & Such, should be opening in the spot this month.

For some reason I thought I had done this Cash-O-Matic just down from the Triangle City Zesto some time ago. In the event it appears not, though I did get to the ones on Broad River Road and Sunset Drive. As nearly as I can tell, this one closed down sometime around 2015.

I admit I still like the name.

I've noticed this hot-pink lingerie shop in West Columbia many times over the years. I think I even got some pictures of it some time back, though, as usual, I can't find them now. At any rate, it appears they have closed sometime in the last few months.

There seems to be some confusion about the name. Online sources use Sugar 'n Spice Lingerie, but the sign actually says Sugar & Spice Lingerie & Gag Gifts.

It will be interesting to see what goes in here next -- I assume they will paint the building.

Taylor's Poultry Place, 4701 Augusta Road: 2020   1 comment

I have been thinking for a while now that Taylor's Poultry Place on Augusta Road was closed, but as I almost always drove by on a weekend day, I really wasn't sure. Now the place definitely is, and has signage (and banners) up for the next operation, which is to be a tire store.

There aren't many google reviews for Taylor's (though those that are there are positive), but judging by those, they probably closed around 2020.

Bricks And Stones Pizza Company 3234 Augusta Road Suite 30: 19 March 2022   no comments

Bricks And Stones is in Woodberry Plaza, along with Big Lots and behind the former Fat Boy. While I was not aware of them, the menu looks pretty good, and perhaps I will try to sneak in there over the next few weeks.

Commenter Robin reports that their facebook put the closing down to inflation, COVID and staffing issues, like all too many places lately. Commenter Andrew sends in this ColaDaily item about the closing as well.

According to the Thompson web site, this building was built by the company's founder in 1935 and was

the first building in this area that was built strictly for the use as a funeral home

According to this WestMetroNews article, Thompson's moved their area facility to larger quarters at 4720 Augusta Road in Lexingtion in early 2021.

It's a very nice looking, rather churchlike building and I certainly hope they find a buyer who wants to keep it standing. Currently the lot is apparently being used for paid parking.

I was not aware of Primal Gourmet which is a "kitchen & market" on Meeting Street. Apparently the did a lot of prepared meals as well as being an SCDA flagged marketplace. As commenter Heath reports, they are regrouping while dealing with, staffing, supply-chain, pricing and pandemic issues, and expect to be back in some format soon.

Commenter Andrew supplies this link to a ColaDaily story, and you can read a somewhat longer explanation from their door note if you click through to the large version above. Hopefully they will be back soon.

UPDATE 5 February 2022: Fixed missing tag issue.

UPDATE 17 June 2022 -- Removed the "Temporary" from the post title, and am adding these pictures of the follow-on operation, Brickhouse Gourmet Coffee & Tea Co:

Terry's Diner / Liberty Income Tax, 2604 Augusta Road: 2017 etc   3 comments

If you look closely at the marquee underneath the Pepsi sign, it almost looks like it says DINER, something that would make sense with that advertiser. What the diner, next to the current TitleMax, might have been called, I can't determine, or exactly when it closed. Google Streetview goes back to 2007, at which time it was already Liberty Income Tax. Also going by Streetview, it appears that Liberty closed or moved sometime between August 2015 and March 2017.

I am not sure what is currently going on here. There appeared to be a lot of food trucks parked in the back lot, and there has been a Mexican looking emblem put on the the front of the building, but judging by the furniture piled up against the windows and lack of a sign, it does not appear to be a retail restaurant.

UPDATE 19 October 2021: Changed first part of post title from Diner to Terry's Diner based on the comments.

UPDATE 19 September 2022 -- Now open apparently as a Mexican & more restaurant:
