December is the time for slowing down and enjoying time with friends and family. While the Grand Strand is home to many holiday events, The Market Common hosts a month full of holiday happenings. Every Tuesday and Thursday before Christmas, join Santa at the Christmas tree in front of Grand 14 Cinemas for the perfect complimentary photo opportunity. Don’t forget to bring your Christmas wish list and find out whether you’ve been naughty or nice! If you’re looking for a Christmas gift, visit Howard Avenue on Saturdays (until December 15th) for our annual Holiday Bazaar. Handmade treasures and delicious sweets are available for purchase from 12-4pm. Visit from 3pm to 6pm on Saturdays and enjoy Complimentary Carriage Rides in front of Dolce Lusso Salon. “The Market Common is a great place to visit any day of the year, but Christmastime is the absolute best,” mentions Caitlen Buffkin, Marketing Coordinator for The Market Common. Lastly, end the year in grand fashion at our Southern Times Square event for New Year’s Eve. Located in Valor Park this year, this free, family-friendly event features live music, a real ball drop, complimentary kids activities and a spectacular fireworks show all starting at 9pm.
Holiday happenings aren’t the only exciting things to come to The Market Common. Several new tenants now call the retail district home including Trust Thy Barber, The Uncommon Chocolatier, and EdVenture (formerly the South Carolina Children’s Museum). Trust Thy Barber, located on Deville Street, offers the ultimate barber experience including straight-razor shaves and hot towels. Splurge for “The Executive” and enjoy the royal treatment – a barber-shop treat any man is sure to enjoy. If your sweet tooth is calling, turn the corner at Reed Avenue and visit The Uncommon Chocolatier. Offering delectable chocolates and truffles of various assortments, shop for a treat now and pick up a gift set for that hard-to-buy-for family member. The Uncommon Chocolatier is located beside Ultimate California Pizza near Grand 14 Cinema. Set to open early 2019, EdVenture joins The Market Common in their new location on the corner of Howard Avenue and Nevers Street. While the themed experience for families and children of all ages is being kept under wraps for now, the exhibit will be sure to wow visitors and members while inspiring a learning experience unique to Myrtle Beach. “A primary focus of The Market Common is to create a positive experience by fully engaging with the community,” Heather Gray, General Manager says. “We are thrilled to announce the tenants who are renovating along with new tenants who want to join us on our journey.”
