Unfortunately that's not saying much; food that is somehow over salted yet bland at the same time and canned salsa. You could literally call in Corona's, Monterrey, Sabroso's, etc. and the taste would be identical.

Harrison's Workwear at Collins Corner on East Wade Hampton Boulevard closed recently. The chain has added new stores in Asheville and Greensboro in North Carolina. Its Mauldin and Spartanburg stores have more room to utilize its needs and offer more than what Greer did.
I recently spoke with someone who works at the Kohls on Woodruff. She said the one in Greer's still a go.

Mr. Salsa is located on Wade Hampton Boulevard at Saint Mark Road in Taylors. Across the street a retail center was once envisioned.

Something can still go up there, maybe like a supermarket. A supermarket would work if there is high population density to support one.

Someone may want to remove that "for lease" sign then.

I guess someone is turning the switch off or ran out of bright ideas. Joking aside, The Lighting Center has been in business for years.

Yeah, just got a mailer yesterday inviting us to the private closing sale or something. Sad to see a local retailer go out of business. There's a furniture place down WHB that is also closing soon.

In regards to good Mexican food. Sure their food taste similar to all the other mexican places. To truly get 'authentic' Mexican food you have to go to Mexico. But they are my favorite place on WHB though.

My 2nd would be Asada Food Truck..mmmm

If you're talking about the one on WH by 14 who has had the going out of business sale for about a year, I wonder what the definition of "soon" or "final days" actually means up here.

My son is in Mexico for the summer. He claims the Mexican food down there isn't so hot and has been eating foods of other nationalities. As long as he doesn't suffer Montezuma's revenge, and comes home safe, I'll be happy!

I thought the salsa at Mr. Salsa was awful, I didn't think the food was much better. I asked if the salsa was made fresh, and got a "yes." I guess to them it meant that they just opened the can and made the salsa recently.

I still haven't found good salsa here, though I do like the avocado salsa at Papas & Beer, but I'll continue to search for a good fresh tomato based salsa, as I still search for good eggplant parmesan and pizza (closer than Black Mountain)!

Would you be referring to Bond's Furniture? They have gone from a "retirement sale," in recognition of an employee retiring and the business continuing, to an actual "store closing sale," in the sense the business is closing for good and the remaining inventory has to be sold. One wonders if they are actually staying in business and if they are dependent on sales to bring customers in.

Yeah, it's Bond's Furniture. Along the same lines of store closings - Iced - closed down a few weeks ago.

Yeah, I bought a couch from Bond's last fall. I got a good deal but they said they were retiring/restructuring at the time. They have been milking the store closing deal for quite some time though.

I'm not surprised that Iced went under. I was never terribly impressed. Their cupcakes seemed smaller than The Chocolate Moose (i.e. Cupcake) and more expensive. The cupcakes were good but mouth watering or extraordinary. I do wonder why they chose to shut up shop completely. It seems that it would have behooved them to continue either on the festival circuit or doing a food truck enterprise. But then again, maybe they just got tired of it. Their website directs you to patronize Art Eats on North Street.

I noticed Greer Express Lube on West Wade Hampton Boulevard closed and IHOP already up structurally at West Wade Hampton Boulevard and North Suber Road.

Is the IHOP the anchor store at the end of that mini-strip?
