I want to welcome a brand new business to the Grand Strand! Gander Mountain opened this morning bringing not only a new store and new jobs, but improvements to the infrastructure of Carolina Forest.
With such growth in that area, it is nice to see businesses that are ready to invest in the neighborhood.
And this company wants to continue its investment to help bring in even more opportunity.
Consider this: In February, lawyers for Gander Mountain requested a $2.2 million bond to help pay for even more road improvements in the area. Those improvements will help relieve congestion, make it more convenient for shoppers to easily go from store to store without the hassle of getting on 501, and make the area more appealing for other businesses to locate there.
It is now up to Horry County Council to make a decision and I hope it's the right one.
