Conway, South Carolina – The Horry County Board of Architectural Review’s Legacy Business Recognition Program will recognize the following business with ribbon cutting ceremonies June 12, 2018: Jamestown Grocery located at 2703 4th Street in Conway at 2:15 p.m., and Oliver’s Restaurant located at 1301 Highway 501 Business also in Conway at 3 p.m. The ceremonies are free and open to the public.
The restaurant currently known as Jamestown Grocery & Restaurant was originally opened in 1962 as a grocery store and gas service station by Carlsyle Marlowe. Later the service station was closed down, enclosed and turned into a restaurant. Today the operation is incorporated with Carlsyle’s daughter, Beverly as the president. Her father is the vice president and his wife Lou Ellen, is the secretary. Even though Beverly’s parents are both in their 80s, they still come into the restaurant and help out. The Honorable Harold Philips, Horry County Council District 7, will be on hand to present the award to Jamestown Grocery & Restaurant.
In 1964, George Alton Oliver Sr. and George Alton Oliver Jr. opened a meat market and grocery store known as the Waccamaw Superette. As the market grew with the local mill workers coming for lunch, the decision was made to put in a grill and the name was changed to Oliver’s Lunchette. In 2002, the name was again changed to Oliver’s Restaurant. Four generations of Olivers have worked in the restaurant. The Honorable Johnny Vaught, Horry County Council District 8, will present the award to Oliver’s Restaurant.
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.
