Members of the Greater Cayce West Columbia Chamber and other local supporters gathered Friday at The Modern Locksmith in Cayce to celebrate the store's official ribbon cutting.

The Modern Locksmith is an extension of Irmo Lock Company, Inc., and company president Guy Caskey said they opened the second location to better-serve their Midlands customers.

"We're excited to be in a new location and really to expand our offerings to hopefully a new customer base who may have been a little apprehensive to contact Irmo Lock, just because of the geographic nature of the name, " he said.

According to Caskey, the Cayce location will specialize in automotive smart key fobs and remotes. Additionally, the business can be utilized for services including commercial hardware and locking needs, and key copying.

Mobile operations will be coordinated through the Irmo office. Customers can book an appointment by phone or online. All of the same services are provided at both locations.

The Modern Locksmith made its first sale in the new store Oct. 15, which Caskey said was also the 32nd anniversary of Irmo Lock.

The business is located inside a landmark building at 538 Knox Abbott Dr., originally constructed in 1970. Store hours are from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays.
