Coventry Marketplace, home to a new Publix supermarket, will also feature a Smoothie King, nail salon, hair removal studio and liquor store. In addition to these stores, a dentist’s office and an SC Federal Credit Union bank will also be on the property.

A new mall near the Market Common area is expected to open mid to late October, developers say.

Bruce Williams, the owner of Coventry Marketplace, said the center was sixty-five per cent let. The center has four buildings and several food and retail spaces. The location provides walking distance access to the grocery store for residents along Coventry Boulevard.

It’s been just over a year of construction since Publix first announced the project in February 2021.

“With all the supply chain issues, we’re grateful to be on the right track,” Williams said.

The Publix will be located on the southeast corner of the US Highway 17 bypass and Coventry Boulevard near the South Strand Medical Center.

According to a brochure provided by rental office Belk Lucy, approximately 21,000 square feet of off-plot land is available. A separate apartment building project to the right of the mall will begin construction in early fall, according to Williams.

This Publix will be the sixth in the Myrtle Beach area.
