Business owners look to capitalize on housing, commercial boom at Coventry Crossing

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Along bustling Farrow Parkway, Coventry Crossing has seen some businesses come and go. Heading into the holiday season, more storefronts are empty than full.

But that may soon change. Right now, a few places are looking or "coming soon" to the strip of partially empty spaces.

“I see a lot more upswing there, as far as growth and potential,” said Daniel Brass, owner of Black Dog Running Company. “There's a lot new commercial that's going in over there, with the new Neighborhood Walmart store, and there's a Publix that's going to be opening at the end of Coventry...and then they're building a lot of residential housing over there. There's some apartment complexes being built.”

Those are some of the reasons Brass said he is moving his business. He's currently off Highway 501, but says the specs of Coventry Crossing match up with his business model better. He holds group runs at the Market Common already, and the groups will be able to leave right from his store, which will also get them in the door.

The chatter among other local business owners is that he's one of a few looking to relocate or open up shop. From a boxing gym to a café, many say the five-or-so empty stores may soon be more like one-or-two.

"I see where things were, and businesses were moving out of there, and the way things have changed,” Brass said. “I think there's a lot of potential in the area. So hopefully with us going in there, and some other business I'm hearing of, that will hopefully kind of help it take off a little bit."

Some of the business owners who are already occupying stores at Coventry Crossing said they are thrilled to see storefronts finally filling in.
