Awendaw Grocery Store

Awendaw is a small, rural town located between McClellanville and Mount Pleasant. This former grocery store, off of US 17, is long out-of-business.

Awendaw has very few small businesses. There’s no traditional business district or “Main Street”. Many “for rent” signs, broken windows, or vacant buildings are littered throughout the city limits.

Town leaders are interested in attracting small businesses to the area, so that residents do not have to drive elsewhere for basic services such grocery shopping, banking and going to the doctor. At the present time, Awendaw residents who have transportation drive to Mount Pleasant or Georgetown to run errands.

Some town leaders feel if more affluent coastal development takes place in Awendaw, the whole town will reap the benefits of a larger, wealthier tax base. The town could provide more services even for its poorer residents.

These goals of economic growth have stirred controversy among local residents. Many fear that inviting development to the area will ruin its rural character and that the oldest and poorest residents would not be able to afford rising tax rates.
