MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – The permitting process has begun to possibly bring a new business to the former location of closed gentlemen’s club Chez Joey on Seaboard Street in Myrtle Beach.

According to city records, a sign-awning permit application has been submitted for that location, which would change the name to The Treasure Club.

Myrtle Beach city officials added the proposed business owners have only applied for a sign permit, and not a building construction permit.

Employees of the former business, Chez Joey, were among those arrested earlier this year following an investigation into child sex abuse, where two 4-year-old children told investigators they were allegedly assaulted inside the club.

Lindsey D. Honeycutt, 29; Ambrose E. Heavener, 30; Panteleimon N. Spirakis, 55; and Anthony L. Strickland, 45, were all arrested in connection with the case.

The owner of Chez Joey denied any illegal activity took place at the business and said he turned over security tapes to the police. He eventually forfeited is business license in April.
