Local Taco on Augusta gone too. It's been bought by another business to open next year. Breakwater reopens DT.

That apparently includes the Local Taco on Pelham Rd closing as well (No longer listed on Local Taco's web site)

That's not surprising; the place was pretty much barren the two times I went there, and the food tasted like it came off a factory conveyor belt.

I really liked the Conestee location once upon a time, but it definitely lost something when the restaurant traded hands.

I know by the late 80's, well after TG&Y had closed up (The sign stayed up until the building was razed if I recall) and Belk left there were rumors that the roof had collapsed in Belk at least. Domino's was perhaps the last actual tenant in the place.. Can't remember if they built first or if Winn-Dixie closed first. MAYBE a hair place was last to leave.

I know the city wound up taking over the property as a 'nuisance property' and demolishing it. Though, oddly, the old Bailey Bank building still stands, albeit vacant.

I wonder if Palmetto Lanes is still open.. That's another place that has had a colorful and checkered history. Website is still up, but lists '2014' hours. Facebook doesn't look promising. I've been working on documenting Rosemont Cemetery the past few weeks.. I'd swing by, but you can't tell anything from the outside of that building.

And.. Dempsey's Pizza looks like they're going to re-open from the August fire next week. They had planned for Thanksgiving week, but.. Restaurants NEVER open on the first planned day.

Default Copeland Plaza, Clinton, South Carolina

I will need some time to think about Copeland Plaza. It was a popular retail center in Clinton from the 1970's through the 1990's.

I do recall Winn-Dixie #1229, 29496 United States Highway 76 East, Clinton, South Carolina 29325-6206, very well.

Short answer, WalMart came to Laurens.

Belks ceiling did not fall in, unless it was after it closed. I was in there its last day. (Got several great bargains)

The ONLY reason it was popular was that it was the only option. My Grandmother used to joke that Clinton only had Chinese reataurants and banks.. And noone had money for either. She wasn't that far off. especially as the mills started to close down.

Yes, this would be after it closed.. Though I do believe that building maintenance issues was part of the reason for Belk's closing (Plus the fact they built a new store in Laurens). I'm sure that it led to Winn-Dixie's departure, because they were in a good spot.. Their closing left a food desert.

The whole building was in disrepair. Constant leaks. My wife use to complain, when she worked at TG&Y, if it rained they spend more time cleaning up water than doing their job. Belks consolidated the Clinton and Laurens stores, but I'm not sure if this was planned before closing Clinton. I say combined, but it could have just been moving the employees from Clinton to Laurens. The old Belks in Laurens also had problems with the building. It was cheaper to move and remodel the former KMart building than to repair I guess.

Youre right, of course. There is no other supermarket in that area of Clinton.

Wasn't Copeland the plaza that had the major flood in the late 70's? I slightly remember a carpet golf and KFC on the corner close by that my grandparents took me to as a child.
