Horry County Legacy Business Recognition

Conway, South Carolina – The Horry County Board of Architectural Review’s Legacy Business Recognition Program will recognize two North Myrtle Beach businesses March 5, 2019. At 9 a.m. a ribbon cutting will be held at the Ocean Drive Barber Shop, and another will be held at Boulineau’s at 9:30 a.m. The ceremonies are free and open to the public.

Ocean Drive Barber Shop was opened in 1952 with Bobby Lewis and his brother operating it for almost 50-years. When Bobby’s brother retired, his friend Kevin Armstrong moved from Charlottesville to work alongside him. Bobby has cut hair at this barbershop for almost 60-years. The state of South Carolina identifies this shop as one of the longest operating barbershops in the state.

Boulineau’s started when Frank and Louise Boulineau opened a grocery store in the community of Cherry Grove Beach in 1948. In 1954 Hurricane Hazel destroyed most of Cherry Grove, including Frank and Louise’s grocery store. A second store was opened a few years later and after several expansions, the unique store now features 85,000 square feet with shopping on two floors.

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.

Ocean Drive Barber Shop is located at 233 Main Street, in North Myrtle Beach, and Boulineau’s is located at 212 Sea Mountain Highway, in North Myrtle Beach. For more information, contact Lou Conklin, Senior Planner with Horry County Planning & Zoning at (843) 915-5340.

The ceremony is free and open to the public.

Founded as the Ocean Forest Golf Club in 1927 and located in the heart of Myrtle Beach, this golf club became known as “The Granddaddy”. It was renamed Pine Lakes International Country Club under the ownership of Fredrick Albert Warner Miles and placed on the National Register of Historic Places November 7, 1996. This golf course has a rich and interesting history. The clubhouse was designed by New York architect, Raymond Hood in the classical revival style and the course itself was designed by architect Robert White who was also the first president of the Professional Golfers’ Association (PGA). In 1954, Pine Lakes became the birthplace of a now world-famous weekly magazine, Sports Illustrated. Pine Lakes has recently added the Golf Hall of Fame which honors the men and women who have had significant roles in the Myrtle Beach golf industry. This club is also significant for its association with the growth of Myrtle Beach as a coastal community resort destination.

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.
