Another in the ‘Colorful Charleston’ series. The sign is great, but the pharmacy is gone. An antique store looks to be in it’s place.
Antique stores, art galleries, and clothing have taken over the downtown store fronts. That will pass soon too. Charleston is booming so I expect all the chains to move in. And of course there goes the charm and reason everyone comes to visit.
NYC Soho was like that. First it was a downtown section filled with warehouses, garment center supplies, and old offices. Next it was discovered, so then came the Soho loft and trendy art galleries appeared. Now…The Gap and Old Navy. And of course no reason to visit.
History repeats itself. Glad I came to Charleston before Corp. America.
