Visitors will slowly begin to come back to the Grand Strand but residents are the key to restarting the local economy. Show your love for the beach and for your friends and neighbors by shopping, dining and playing locally.
Local support is extremely important but what that looks like is a deeply personal decision. Businesses are reopening across the Grand Strand with safety measures in place to mitigate the risk of a spike in COVID-19 cases. But we understand that people will still be cautious as they begin to venture out and we encourage everyone to take the precautions that make them most comfortable, whether that means wearing a mask or gloves, ordering in advance for pickup, or visiting businesses during less busy times. Call ahead to find out the safety measures of the business you are planning to visit before you go to ensure you’re comfortable with their protocols.
The Grand Strand is the perfect place for locals to venture out while still maintaining physical distance from crowds. With 14 communities, open shopping areas and outdoor attractions, we are well positioned to recover quickly. Your support of our local business community is needed now to help restore our local economy.
Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce recognizes that this is a difficult time for many local businesses. We want to help support the amazing people who devote their time and energy to providing the Grand Strand with products and services. This page will be a growing collection of local companies that are open for business, and their messages about how they are looking forward to serving you. Check out our Business Directory for even more local businesses to support!
