SBB Four Corners location revving up to be a shopping center

HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - Murrells Inlet awaits the arrival of a new neighborhood market to take over a former spot popular to bikers, SBB Four Corners, but a Walmart isn't all that's in store for this location.

This vacant land is on the corner of the Highway 17 Bypass and Tournament Boulevard, and will eventually be a shopping center called the Inlet Crossings, according to the plans.

The anchor store, Walmart Neighborhood Market, will be a bit larger than a typical grocery store. It will also have a pharmacy drive-through and be fairly similar to the one in Surfside Beach. A spokesperson for the company says it could come with approximately 95 jobs.

On top of that, the site plans show the addition of a gas station and a strip which can fit up to 10 shops.

This would all sit on the property formerly known as “SBB Four Corners," the popular biker hangout, which was knocked down last year. It brought a lot of business to New York Diner, which is just across the highway. The owners of the diner are unsure if this Walmart would have the same effect, but they do believe it could be good for the community.

"I have to admit, I like the convenience,” said Colleen Georghiou, Co-owner of New York Diner. “There's none that are right here, so that's a good thing, and I know a lot of people would appreciate that.”

One of the businesses' concerns is the traffic that would come with this development.

“I'm not thrilled with the traffic problems it may ensue,” said Georghiou. “We already have heavy traffic due to the school being across and to the right and this intersection, any of the intersections down here are a little scary.”

According to the county, traffic concerns are being considered. It is is working with SCDOT to add extra turn lanes, which is why you'll see cones if you drive through the area.

If you do drive by, you may notice, it continues to lay flat, since SBB was demolished last summer. As far as when plans will come to life, at this point, the next step is in the hands of the county.

By the end of last year, the county approved plans for a new Walmart Neighborhood Market. Then, the developer decided it wanted to make some minor changes to those plans, like parking. Now, before it can start building, the company needs to go through the same county approval process. That's the step we're waiting for, however; county planners anticipate this will move forward.

A Walmart spokesperson says construction is currently scheduled to begin later this summer, and it typically takes up to nine months to construct a Neighborhood Market.
