It's been open since August 1989, but this Saturday -- with items up to 75% off -- they will open for the last time.

It's owned and run by S.C. Senator Glenn McConnell, and his brother Samm. We caught up with them this week to talk about the closure.

And -- in what we hope will be a regular event for business stories -- we teamed up with the Charleston Regional Business Journal, and their reporter Molly Parker along to the store to make this video report.

We'll be linking to their full write-up when it's finished.
