Myrtle Beach area gymnast to purchase The Plex

Myrtle Beach, SC - By Amanda Kelley for The Chronicle

MYRTLE BEACH, SC - Ultimate Gymnastics, Inc. is taking over The Plex. Lauren Foxworth, co-owner of the gymnastics club, had a meeting with First Reliance Bank this morning. Foxworth said the bank appointed Ultimate Gymnastics, Inc. for the role because they were the largest club in The Plex.

Foxworth said the bank is working to help keep all the tenants there, and while she said they plan to change the name the sports complex will be run similarly. She hopes to have the doors open to the public at the same rate of $5 per day.

The transaction is expected to be finalized by Monday.

"Everyone was devastated when they heard [The Plex] was closing," Foxworth said. "I'm glad we can step in and keep it open."
