October 13, 2021

Lee's Inlet Apothecary is our October Leading Business of the Month sponsored by South State Bank.

If you've never been, it's part pharmacy, part gift shop and part soda fountain. A visit feels a little like stepping back in time in a good way. That was the goal for Willie Lee and his wife Melissa when they opened the store with the idea for a "drug store the way it used to be."

Lee's Inlet Apothecary opened and joined the chamber in 2002.

Inside you'll find a 1920s soda fountain that was originally on Rte. 66 in Oklahoma that was brought back to life in the shop in Murrells Inlet. They serve sweet treats daily and lunch on weekdays. You can find the menu on their website.

The gift shop inside is called Good Deed Goods. They give back a portion of their sales to a local, national and international charity.

The anchor of the store remains the pharmacy. Willie Lee has been a pharmacist for more than three decades.


Each month, Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce announces a Leading Business of the Month. This special promotion, sponsored by South State Bank, recognizes a company that has been a member of Myrtle Beach Area Chamber for a minimum of five years. The business is randomly selected. The company displays a banner at their place of business for one month recognizing them as the Leading Business of the Month. The honor was first awarded in September 2015.
