The rumors were true, The popular grocery store chain The Fresh Market is opening their newest location in Myrtle Beach.
Speculation and rumors were all over local media in Januray and February of this year, GrandStrandHappening.com gave some back story:
The Fresh Market is growing all around the US, including Pawleys Island, and although this new location is not on their website, the rumors come form some pretty good sources including an employee. The Myrtle Beach location is thought to be in the now closed Sally Stowe Interiors at 76th and Kings Highway by Bay Naturals and Stein Mart.
And Myrtle Beach Restaurant News reported on the item on the City of Myrtle Beach's agenda a couple months back:
Fresh Market - 7751 North Kings Highway: Requests replacement of existing awnings and installation of (1) 30” x 38’11” set of building mounted channel letters and (1) 7’ x 7’ sign box. (New City Design Group)
That address is the former location of Sally Stowe Interiors at Northwoods Plaza in Myrtle Beach. Today workers were finishing removing items and moving them to the new Sally Stowe Interiors store a few steps away in the plaza at 7737 N. Kings Highway."
We have a write-up about the first Fresh Market that opened back in May of 2011, which included a review that you can read here.
