History[edit]

The mall originally opened in 1986 as "Briarcliffe Mall", with the name later changing to "Colonial Mall Myrtle Beach." It was the second mall to open in the area, with the first being the now-defunct Myrtle Square Mall. The name was changed to Myrtle Beach Mall in 2007 after being purchased by Jones Lang LaSalle, who acquired it from Colonial Properties Trust in July 2007. The mall's last major update was in 2004.[2] It is one of three malls in the Grand Strand area. The super-regional Coastal Grand Mall is located to the south in Myrtle Beach and the other being Inlet Square Mall in Murrells Inlet.

In the early 2000s, a Bass Pro Shops was added, after Kmart which had previously anchored the mall at that end was demolished. The Myrtle Beach Mall store is the only Bass Pro Shops location in South Carolina, and has helped keep the mall a viable retail establishment in the Grand Strand.[2] The second Belk store was added in 1994, as the original Belk store required expansion but was landlocked.[3]

On May 17, 2014, it was announced Peak Financial Partners, a private real estate investment firm, as well as Msuma Holdings Corp acquired the mall for $45 million.[4][5][6]

On May 22, 2014, it was reported that the new owners of the Myrtle Beach Mall say that architects have already developed a couple of new concepts for the mall and there are plans to change the mall in order to attract more shoppers. The first changes would be a redesign of the food court, followed by a conversion of the center of the mall, the theater area and the mall’s front.[7]
