The State is reporting that Costco is in negotiations (again) to move into the 17 acre location off Piney Grove Road near Harbison. This is the same location they were close to securing a few years ago, but a disagreement with Richland County about who would pay for needed road upgrades sidetracked the plans. I had heard rumors that a few other locations were in play as well, but it looks like this is where they want to be. It really is the option in Columbia that best fits their typical store size and location. Will be interesting to see if it really happens this time.
Off Topic Randomness
The rest of Sketchbook B is about design, typography and communication. This page was a little different and was a place for me to post random off topic stories.
I stopped updating this corner of the site when I reorganized and moved my random writings into my main blog. I keep this blog live, though, because some of my favorite essays are posted here.
