Have you started your holiday shopping?
Experts predict the onset of gift gathering to begin a bit early this year, given the circumstances. People won’t be as keen to pack into malls or camp out in droves for Black Friday – or even Thanksgiving night – doorbusters.
Lucky for you, those who love Myrtle Beach, you have a ton of great shopping options right here along the Grand Strand.
It wouldn’t surprise retailers if online shopping rose big in 2020. That’s convenient, but getting your hands on the item you want – that’s something else all together. A little planning – and an early start – can lead to a smooth, and dare we say, early-wrap-up shopping season.
