Georgetown Grocery Stores Will Not Open

In July, the grocery chain Fresh Market announced plans to build a new store in Pawleys Island.

Also this year, Lowes Foods announced a store for the South Causeway.

Neither store is coming anytime soon.

The plans for building Fresh Market have been withdrawn, Georgetown County Administrator Sel Hemingway said at Tuesday evening’s County Council meeting.

The plans for a “planned development” to include the grocery store, retail store and bank at the intersection of U.S. Highway 17 and Parkersville Road have been approved by the County Planning Commission and two readings from County Council.

The plans were up for third and final reading Tuesday evening. But Hemingway said “the developer has no intent to pursue this option at this time.”

The third reading was tabled which means if nothing is done with it by next month, it will die and the developer will have to start from the beginning.

County Planner Boyd Johnson said the e-mail he received from the developer simply said the plans to build “at that location” have changed. Johnson said he is unsure if the developer plans to build anywhere else in the county.
