Retail Trends that will Transform the Industry in 2019 The Internet has made shopping even easier, cheaper nd more concenient.

* April, 2019 There is a real danger of malls becoming extinct as the declining numbers of visitors leaves stores unwilling to take vacant units. The future of shopping malls looks bleak in many ways. There really is not a lot to do at a mall other than spend money. And the shoppers’ attention spans are short. If you want to grab their attention, then online is the way to do this with low prices and great offers. It feels so easy to order online and get items delivered to home or work. Add in the fear of crime - pickpockets, robberies, and assaults, and you have a place that holds no attraction for a growing number of Americans Read more here

Shopping in Myrtle Beach is strong compaired to many orther cities of the same size. It is one of the top reasons people visit us - along with affordability, the beach, good weather, live entertainment shows, hundreds of restaurants, gold, sports and many attractions for the entire family.

* Kirkland's home decor and gift store has opened in Sayebrook Town Center. Kirkland's closed its store in Coastal Grand Mall in Jan. 2015 after declining to renew its lease. But the store at the Arcadian Shopping center across from the enttance to Tanger Outlets on 17 N.) remains open, and there's another Kirkland location at Sayebrook Town Center.

* Local Ryan's Buffet. At least two Ryan's buffet restaurant locations in the Grand Strand have closed because the parent company filed a Chapter 11 bankruptcy. (The Ryan's in North Myrtle Beach is still open.)

* Grand Strand Vendor Mall is a small flea market, not what you would consider a "mall." It is located just off Kings Hwy., just off Farrow Parkway. You'll find a good assortment of low-priced products, but unfortunately it can't hold a candle to Hudson's. However, this smaller vendir malls offer an AVON booth, glass engraving, book-trading, custom wig fitting and a surprisingly large pet shop area that includes Sugar Gliders, Hermit Crabs and more.

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

* Here's a list of all the stores to shop in The Market Common

Arcadian Commons is locatd across from the Tanger Outlet stores 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 your car right in front. Fabric Showcase has n excellent choice of fabrics, plus helpful employees. We covered our dining room chair seats with material we purchased there.  You'll find a Coldstone Creamery and a huge Dollar Tree! Acrossth3e street from Arcadian Commons you'll spot the popular Steak & Shake as well as the North Tanger Outlet Mall.

Barefoot Landing - Barefoot Landing offers a large selection of specialty shops carrying many items, factory stores, restaurants, entertaiment and shows. You will also find coupons on the Barefoot Landing website!

Broadway at the Beach - This is 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 surrounding the "Villages" - Caribbean Village, Charleston Village and the New England Fishing Village.

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 makk developers in the U.S. Coastal Grand Mall 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, 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.

Myrtle Beach has always has always held strong statistics for shopping. (It ranks as the #3 reason people vacation here.) So in spite of the dire warnings we're hearing about nationwide retail stores, the Grand Strand remains a vibrant and busy shopping area.

Hammock Shops at Pawleys Island - This is the birthplace of the 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 in Murrells Inlet (17 Business and Hwy. l7 Bypass) struggles to stay in business. Renovations were completed in August, 2019. The mall looks new, with marble tile in soft gray and blue colors, plus lots of skylights. but they need some tenants! Visit ooks-A-Million and Belk's. Note: K-Mart, JC Penney and SteinMart are closed at this location, and the store sites remain empty. Frank Theatres and CineBowl in Inlet Square Mall has also closed. News article from Aug. 2018. The mall is transitioning into a  consignment location with vendors offering consignment items

The Market Common is Myrtle Beach's upscale shopping area. Take in a movie at the Grand 14, the most popular movie theater at the beach. Links to stores, shopping and events. There os always something happening at The Market Common.

Myrtle Beach Mall - (formerly Colonial Mall and prior to that, Briarcliff Mall) offers over 90 stores, including Belk and JCPenney. It is located just a few miles north, in North Myrtle Beach on US-17. Bass Pro Shop is located just ourside the mall.

Tanger Outlets are a major developer of off-price shopping. 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 locals and tourists for the best prices on the brands we love.
