Big Lots Taking Portion of Former Seven Oaks Food Lion


I was passing by the Seven Oaks shopping center today and saw the sign for Big Lots store “coming soon”. If you don’t know, Seven Oaks shopping center is located at the intersection of Old Bush River Road and St. Andrews Road in Columbia. The area has certainly been declining, so Food Lion’s announcement that they were closing the store last February wasn’t exactly a surprise. There are plenty of vacant office buildings, and the K-Mart store hasn’t been updated in many years……if ever.
Having grown up in the area way back when, I remember when the grocery store was a Big Star store in the late 1970’s. The parking lot was kind of a hangout for those of us at Irmo High School in those days.

I’m glad to see at least a portion of the store be leased rather quickly. See what you can do to help them lease the remaining 13,198 square feet.
