Wal-Mart in Myrtle Beach to start closing at midnight

Shoppers accustomed to late night hours at the Myrtle Beach Wa-Mart Supercenter on Seaboard Street will have to shift their routines beginning Sunday when the store starts locking its doors at midnight.

Local co-manager Devin Parham referred questions about the shift from 24-hour shopping to Wa-Mart corporate spokesman Brian Nick. Nick said the change in hours simply reflects an operations decision at the corporate level. Starting Sunday, store hours will be 6 a.m. to midnight.

“In this case, we reviewed customer shopping patterns and determined the few hours the store will not be open to customers will allow us to reallocate resources to ensure our store is in the best shape during peak shopping hours,” Nick said.
