I have no affiliation with any of the stores listed... but I have shopped them alll!


* Kirkland's home decor and gift store will open in the Myrtle Beach SayeBrook Town Center. Kirkland's closed its store in Coastal Grand mall in January 2015 after declining to renew its lease, but the store at the Arcadian Shores Commons remains open.

* Local Ryan's Buffet. At least two Ryan's buffet restaurant locations in the Grand Strand have closed becausse the parent company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

* Ulta's 2nd locateion at 120 Sayebrook Parkway. This is the Shopping Center where you'll also find Marshall and Target.

* Stein Mart at Inlet Square (Murrells Inlet has closed.  Their new location is near Kohl's in South Strand Commons (Hwy. 17 Bypass.)

* Myrtle Beach Flea Market lost its lease, according to a recent news release. The market has been located off Kings Hwy. 17 just south of Farrow Parkway for about 20 years. The vendors who don't require much spaceare now located in what used to be the back part of the building, signs are clearly marked on doors and windows. . Thereis a good assortment of low-end products, but unfortunately it can't hold a candle to Hudson's.
(Exception: There is aq good Avon Outlet there.)

* Both our local K-Marts have closed.

* New! Carolina Pottery is open in the old K-Mart building at 1403 N. Kings Hwy.

* Tommy Bahama Outlet -  Tanger Outlet Mall,17 North (north end location)

What big stores are closing?

If you heard the rumor that Dillards at Coastal Grand Mall might close I talked with a reliable source in store management and was assured that is not true.

Arcadian Commons iis located across from the Tanger Outlets on 17 N. Outlet Mall. Here you'll find Marshall's, Ross Department store, Kirkland's and even a Wal-Mart! When I shopped at the large Kirkland's, I found some good bargains. The nice thing about this Kirkland's is that it is a huge store, and you can park right in front. Fabric Showcase has an extensive choice of fabrics, and very helpful employees. We covered our dining room chairs with fabric we purchased here in 2013.  You'll find a Coldstone Creamery and a huge Dollar Tree! Across the street from  Arcadian Commons, you'll spot the popular Steak & Shake as well as the North Tanger Outlet Mall.

Barefoot Landing - Barefoot Landing has an impressive number of shops offering specialty items, factory stores, restaurants, entertainment and shows. You'll also find coupons on the Barefoot Landing website!

Broadway at the Beach - This the #1 shopping and entertainment venue. You do not want to miss Broadway at the Beach when you visit Myrtle Beach! Specialty shops, boutiques and restaurants. A 23-acre lake surrounds the "Villages" - Caribbean Village, Charleston Village and the New England Fshing Village. View my photos and more information here.

Coastal Grand Mall opened in March, 2004 as a joint venture between Myrtle Beach Burroughs & Chapin Company and CBL & Associates Properties of Tennessee. CBL is one of the largest mall developers in the US. Coastal Grand Malls is the largest mall in South Carolina. The anchor stores are Dillard, Sears, Belks and JCPenney. On the out-parcels you'll find Ulta, Books A Million , PetSmart,s everal furniture stores and many restaurants including Abuelo's Mexican Restaurant, Texas Roadhouse Grill, Red Robin, Longhorn Steakhouse, Red Lobster, Sticky Fingers, Cracker Barrel and more.

Hammock Shops at Pawleys Island - This is the birthplace of the Rope Hammock.. Many unusual shops are loved by the locals, including me. This is another shopping venue that, in my opinion, should not be missed by our Myrtle Beach visitors. (And you can enjoy genuine Southern cooking at any of the Hammock Shop restaurants.)

Inlet Square Mall,  Murrells Inlet at Hwy 17 Business and Hwy l7 Bypass struggles to stay in business. Renovations were completed in August, 2010. The mall looks new, with marble tile in soft gray and blue colors, plus a lot of skylights. They just need new tenants, and hopefully that will happen. Visit the Frank Theatre , Books-A-Million and Belk.  Note: K-Mart, JC Penney and SteinMart are closed and the stores remain empty.

The Market Common is Myrtle Beach's most fashionable shopping location. Take in a movie at Grand 14, the most popular movie theater at the beach! Links to all stores, shopping, restaurants and events. There's always something going  on to The Market Common.

Myrtle Beach Mall - (formerly Colonial Mall, and prior to that, Briarcliff Malll) offers over 90 stores, including Belk and JCPenney. It's located a few miles north in North Myrtle Beach on US-17. Bass Pro Shop and Islamorada Fish Co. are also located just outside the mall.

Tanger Outlets are a major developer of the off-store pricing outlets. We have 2 outlets in Myrtle Beach . Tanger on Hwy 501 and Tanger Outlets North located on Hwy. 17 at Hwy. 22 (Conway Bypass.) These outlets are loved by tourists anbd locals for the best prices on the brands we love.
