Coastal Grand Mall is a super-regional shopping mall in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, United States. The mall is the second largest in the state, with 1,047,732 square feet (97,337.5 m2) of retail space. The mall is one level, but the majority of the anchor stores have two.

Description[edit]

The one-level super regional mall opened in 2004. Located off of US Highway 17 and Harrelson Blvd., the mall features Belk, Dillard's, JCPenney and Sears as anchors. Other prominent "junior anchors" are Dick's Sporting Goods, Bed Bath and Beyond, Old Navy, and Books-A-Million. The mall houses over 170 specialty stores, with notable stores being Abercrombie and Fitch, Ulta, Brookstone, and Buckle. There is also a 14 screen Cinemark movie theater located off of the food court.[1] It is the newest of two malls in Myrtle Beach, with Myrtle Beach Mall being the elder of the two.

The mall carries a tropical/beach theme throughout, with a "boardwalk" theamed food court. The mall also has an outside 'entertainment pavilion', which has various restaurants and stores. There are also several outparcels to the mall, including many restaurants and various other stores.

History[edit]

Opening in 2004, the mall was constructed under the development of CBL & Associates Properties, and in partnership with Burroughs and Chapin, who also owned the former Myrtle Square Mall, which closed upon the opening of Coastal Grand. The mall was designed by the architectural firm MSTSD from Atlanta, GA. The original planned name for the mall was "Mall Of South Carolina." Sears, Belk, and Dillard's opened with the mall. It quickly became the dominant mall in the Myrtle Beach area.

In March 2008, JCPenney opened a new 105,000-square-foot (9,800 m2) store, featuring a new 1,500-square-foot (140 m2) Sephora Beauty Boutique, which carries "some of the most desired brands in makeup, skincare, fragrance, and accessory products." This was the chain's second store in Myrtle Beach, as it continues to operate its older store at Myrtle Beach Mall.[2]

Coastal Grand is the largest shopping mall complex and largest one-level shopping mall in South Carolina; and the second largest mall in the state. Haywood Mall in Greenville holds the title of the largest mall. If the mall wishes to do so, there is space allocated for future development and/or expansion[3] in the rear of the mall, which could give Coastal Grand the title of the largest mall in South Carolina if carried out.
