Horry County Legacy Business Recognition

On February 23, 2018 in County News, Events

Conway, South Carolina – The Horry County Board of Architectural Review’s Legacy Business Recognition Program will recognize the Galivants Ferry Convenience Store March 7, 2018, at 3 p.m. with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. The ceremony is free and open to the public.

Joseph William Holliday (J. W.) opened a farm supply store in 1869, in Galivants Ferry next to the Little Pee Dee River. The original establishment was called The Pee Dee Store and became a major provider of farm supplies in the Western portion of Horry County. Today patrons know the store as the Galivants Ferry Convenience Store, which supplies visitors and residents alike with a variety of items. Currently, the store is owned by J. W.’s descendants; Billy Holliday, Betty Holliday McLeod, Judson Holliday, Christy Holliday Douglas, and Russell Holliday, and stands on the historical site of the Galivants Ferry Stump Meetings. 

The Horry County Legacy Business Recognition Program pays tribute to local businesses that have contributed to the economic heritage of Horry County for more than 50 continuous years.

The Galivants Ferry Convenience Store is located at 135 Highway 501, in Galivants Ferry. For more information, contact Lou Conklin, Senior Planner with Horry County Planning & Zoning at (843) 915-5340.
