The Fresh Market is planning to open its second Grand Strand store in Myrtle Beach.
The upscale grocer, which opened its first area store in Pawleys Island in 2011, plans to move into the spot at 7751 N. Kings Highway in Myrtle Beach.
It’s unclear when the store will open. A representative for the Greensboro, N.C.-based chain said she could not provide any information about the new store until it is officially announced.
Myrtle Beach’s Community Appearance Board signed off on The Fresh Market’s facade and awnings for the building Thursday.
Fresh Market stores, aiming to create the feel of open European style markets, have old-style butcher shops, a fish market, bakery, produce and floral stands and a deli.
The first Fresh Market store opened in Greensboro in 1982, and the chain has grown to 129 stores in 25 states. It has six stores in South Carolina.
