CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - After a quarter century in business, a South Carolina institution is shutting its doors.

Tom Limehouse, owner of Summerville Auto Auction, on the western edge of a Charleston suburb, said it will host its last sale Tuesday evening.

The Post and Courier reports Limehouse says part of the industrially-zoned auto auction property will be leased to a national tenant. He declined to name the new occupant, saying the deal has not closed. But, he says it’s a venture with a presence already in the Lowcountry.

The final auction at 7 p.m. Tuesday will include vehicles from South Carolina Electric & Gas Co., whose parent company SCANA was acquired this week by Virginia-based Dominion Energy after the multibillion-dollar nuclear reactor debacle north of Columbia.
