Myrtle Beach Shopping: Find Surprising Deals & Local Treasures

Rainy day, sunny day, really any day is a great one for shopping in the Grand Strand. While locals typically try to stay out of tourists’ way, one of my favorite ways to spend a day is going store to store is Broadway at the Beach. Why this Myrtle Beach shopping spot? The variety! Surf shops to sugar shacks, they’ve got everything and still some.

If you’re looking for something darling, less sunny, or more mainstream, we’ve got you covered too. There are lots of choices in the area. This is your guide to Myrtle Beach shopping from mall classics to cute local shops.

The new Broadway at the Beach is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the Grand Strand. Boasting entertainment such as Ripley’s Aquarium, WonderWorks, Hard Rock Cafe, amusement rides, and the nightclubs of Celebrity Square, Broadway is an entire mile of shopping and dining!

In it, you’ll find classics like Build-A-Bear Workshop, Yankee Candle, and Victoria’s Secret. There’s also quirky local spots like the Pepper Palace, which is dedicated to hot sauce, or The Cat Emporium, for kitty-lovers. Hang around for weekly fireworks on Tuesday nights!

If you’re looking for Myrtle Beach shopping that’s both quiet and quaint, take a day away from the beach and hit the Hammock Shops Village in Pawleys Island. Just south of Myrtle Beach, The Original Hammock Shop is filled with stores built in an elegant southern, Victorian style.

Take a breather under the shade of the trees and walk from shop to shop, enjoying the unique local treasures that each has offer. They’ve got everything from speciality olive oil, to fine jewelry, southern souvenirs, and crafts. Oh, and true to its namesake you can watch hammock weaving at the Hammock Weavers Pavilion.

Barefoot Landing

Outdoor, breezy, a fun variety of shops – what more would you need? Barefoot Landing is an open-air shopping center in North Myrtle Beach, much like Broadway at the Beach, but with its own resident (large!) alligator.

The little ones will love a ride around the carousel, stop by the TrickMaster Magic Shop to learn a new trick or two, or marvel at the Monday night fireworks. When you need a break, grab a bite to eat at one of Barefoot’s 14 restaurants.

When you’re in the mood for a good, old-fashioned mall, the Grand Strand has three - all on Highway 17.

1. Coastal Grand Mall is anchored by southern favorites like Belk and Dillard's, as well as JCPenney and Sears. In the center is an awesome food court and movie theater.

Address: 2000 Coastal Grand Circle, Myrtle Beach, SC 29577

2. Inlet Square Mall may have less stores than Coastal Grand Mall, but it does have the area’s newest movie theater and bowling alley! There’s also a cool Kids’ Club with frequent events.

Address: 10125 Highway 17 Bypass, Murrells Inlet, SC 29576

3. Myrtle Beach Mall is home to Bass Pro Shop, which is a destination on its own with a giant fish tank and kid-friendly activities. Kids can also marvel at the trains in the large display run by the Grand Strand Model Railroad Club, just a few stores down. JCPenney and Belk mix with an eclectic selection of stores, a movie theater, and the Carolina Improv Company. During the holiday season, this Myrtle Beach shopping mall has its own indoor ice skating rink.
