SURFSIDE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) – A familiar South Strand name will make its way to the new Surfside Beach Pier.

The town announced on Thursday morning that Perry’s Bait and Tackle will open up a second location at the pier.

This new location holds a deeper meaning as business owner Craig Doehner announced his three grandchildren, all under the age of 16 will be the Surfside Beach location owners.

Surfside Beach Mayor, Bob Hellyer says he can’t image a different business in this spot, “They are the perfect partners. They have everything that we need.”

A five-year lease was signed, and an extension will be discussed at the end of the lease period.

Perry’s Bait and Tackle Surfside Beach location will be different from their other store by providing more fishing gear and easier accessibility.

Perry’s Bait and Tackle will continue to operate its original shop at the Murrells Inlet Marshwalk, which has been open since 1954.

Back in November, Painters Ice Cream also announced it will have a location on the newly built Surfside Beach Pier.

The completion date is expected to take place next week, but a grand opening date for the public has not been announced yet.
