Hiller Hardware store owner Bill Hampton is reconsidering a plan to move his landmark Five Points store to Cayce. But that has not put on hold his plans to lease the land to BB&T for a new bank.Signs recently went up in the window of the store, at Harden and Blossom streets, saying the store is closing and all merchandise is on sale. The store will close by Dec. 31, at the latest.“It’s just not a good time to open a retail store of any kind, especially a hardware store,” Hampton said.But he is leaving the door open to relocation. Otherwise, he said, he would have put a “going out of business” sign in the window.BB&T officials have been silent on their plans for the property, which include tearing down the existing building. Spokeswoman A.-C. McGraw said the bank does not yet have a timeline for construction, but officials are excited to be moving to their first downtown location and pleased with the proximity of the site to the University of South Carolina.“It’s in a great location,” she said.Hampton has said the bank is planning a new “banking center” prototype. But McGraw said she did not have any information on that. She said the bank will have several drive-through lanes and a drive-up ATM. BB&T will release more details on the plans as they become available, she added.BB&T’s plans have received partial approval from the city of Columbia’s design board. The Design/Development Review Commission has asked the bank to eliminate a retaining wall in the back of the building.
