LITTLE RIVER — Little River is now home to a one-stop shop for northern Horry County farmers and rural life enthusiasts.

Tractor Supply Co. recently opened in the North Strand Commons shopping center located near the intersection of S.C. 57 and S.C. 9 in Little River. It is the third Horry County location for the national retailer, with other spots in Conway along U.S. 501 and in the Myrtle Beach area off of S.C. 707.

Products featured in the store include workwear and boots, tractor and trailer parts and accessories, lawn and garden supplies, sprinkler and irrigation parts, power tools, fencing, welding supplies, riding mowers, and equine and pet supplies.

A Food Lion is currently under construction next door joining Take 5 Oil Change that recently opened. Additionally, a Popeyes restaurant and a Freddy's Frozen Custard & Steakburgers are planned for the complex, which sits behind existing businesses Dunkin’ and CVS.

Murrells Inlet business to move

Owners of a popular Murrells Inlet ice cream shop, located across the street from the MarshWalk, recently announced plans to move to a new location after its lease was not renewed.

Twisters Soft Serve has operated for 13 years beside the Lazy Gator, but the gift shop’s owners informed the business owners of other plans for the location, according to a recent Facebook post.

The stand, with picnic tables for outdoor seating, features soft service ice cream, specialty sundaes, shakes, malts, tornados and drinks.

“We will be opening soon just in the process of solidifying a location,” the owners said on social media. “You made us who we are, and your support has made us one of the top ice cream destinations in the state of South Carolina.

“To both our local friends, and those who have come back to us year after year when on vacation we thank you and hope you will continue to follow us as we seek our new home.”

NMB dessert spot

A bakery opened last month inside the Under the Sun flea market located off of U.S. 17 in North Myrtle Beach which offers both delivery and pickup options.

Rollover Bakery’s made-from-scratch menu features cocoa-bombs and pumpkin rolls, pecan pralines, pies, custom cakes as well as their signature cinnamon rolls.

The owners said locations for deliveries include Conway, Little River, Longs, Myrtle Beach, North Myrtle Beach and Calabash, N.C.
