Coastal Grand Mall is a super-regional shopping mall in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, United States. The mall is the second largest in the state, with 1,047,732 square feet (97,337.5 m2) of retail space. The mall is one level, but the anchor stores have two except JCPenney.


The one-level super regional mall opened in 2004. Located off of US Highway 17 and Harrelson Blvd., the mall features Belk, Dillard's, JCPenney and Sears as anchors. Other prominent "junior anchors" are Dick's Sporting Goods, Bed Bath and Beyond, Old Navy, and Books-A-Million. The mall houses over 170 specialty stores, with notable stores being Abercrombie and Fitch, Ulta, and Buckle. There is also a 14 screen Cinemark movie theater located off of the food court. [1] It is the newest of two malls in Myrtle Beach, with Myrtle Beach Mall being the elder of the two.[ citation needed]

The mall carries a tropical/beach theme throughout, with a boardwalk themed food court. The mall also has an outside entertainment pavilion, which has various restaurants and stores. There are also several out-parcels to the mall, including many restaurants and various other stores.[ citation needed]


Opening in 2004, the mall was constructed under the development of CBL & Associates Properties, and in partnership with Burroughs and Chapin, who also owned the former Myrtle Square Mall, which closed upon the opening of Coastal Grand. The mall was designed by the architectural firm MSTSD from Atlanta, GA. The original planned name for the mall was "Mall Of South Carolina."It quickly became the dominant mall in the Myrtle Beach area.[ citation needed]

In March 2008, JCPenney opened a new 105,000-square-foot (9,800 m2) store. This was the chain's second store in Myrtle Beach, as it continues to operate its older store at Myrtle Beach Mall, but will be closing in April 2020. [2]

In 2019, Dicks Sporting Goods announced it will be relocating to a new wing near Dillard's, it will also receive a Golf Galaxy location as well. The former Dicks building will be occupied by Wilmington-based Flip N Fly Trampoline Park, this will be the second location of the trampoline park chain as they have a location at Mayfaire Town Center (also owned and managed by CBL Properties) in Wilmington, NC. [3]

On July 6, 2020 it was announced that the mall has filed a lawsuit against Bed Bath and Beyond saying that the retailer owes about $72,000 worth of rent which it hasn't paid in April, May or June. The store occupies more than 25,000 square feet of the mall. [4]

Coastal Grand is the largest shopping mall complex and largest one-level shopping mall in South Carolina; and the second largest mall in the state. Haywood Mall in Greenville holds the title of the largest mall. If the mall wishes to do so, there is space allocated for future development and/or expansion [5] in the rear of the mall.
