Businesses pleased with Sayebrook Town Center's boom

HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - The grand opening for the latest business to open up shop at the Sayebrook Town Center, Ulta Beauty, was well underway Friday.

The latest addition to the Sayebrook Town Center is bringing in many shoppers, as a line of people waited for its door to open Friday. Other businesses that have called the town center home for a while say the beauty store and other recent openings are making a huge impact -  business is booming.

Ulta joins BurgerFi and Rack Room Shoes, which both opened in the town center within the last few months, and the likes of Moe's, which opened last year.

"We've seen a big increase in sales,” according to the owner of Coccadotts, Michelle Cocca. “Especially since BurgerFi has been open. I know we have Ulta, they're doing their grand opening today, so, we've definitely seen an increase way over sales from last summer so it's good."

For stores, like Coccadotts that have withstood the shopping center losing businesses, the new attractions that bring new people in are a welcome sight. Coccadotts has been in the same spot for about three years and the owners have seen places come and go.

"We still had our, you know, local regulars that would come see us, but you didn't get the people that were going into other places stopping in," Cocca explained.

For Ulta, being able to move in to a brand new plaza it now calls home is equally beneficial.

"I know there's a couple stores that will be opening up in the next couple months as well - which stores in particular, we're just as in suspense as you are, but we're thrilled to be a part of this big boom that's happening," Jessica Kyles, an Ulta employee said.

The plaza that has Ulta and Rack Room Shoes on each end still has empty stores. People have heard rumors that restaurants will fill them. But as of Friday, the county said no plans have been submitted by any businesses to fill the empty space.
