Buy Beach Stuff Local Or In Myrtle Beach?

My wife and I will be going to Myrtle for the week in mid-September. Would it be cheaper to buy certain beach items here before we leave or there at one of the hundreds of beach shops? I'd be looking at board shorts, beach towels and possibly beach chairs (cheap nothing fancy). It's been a while since I've been and I can't remember if it's overpriced to buy it there or not.

I bring my own towels and clothing, but always buy a beach chair and leave it in the condo for the next family - we usually fly, but even when we drive, I don't like to bother taking up space with beach chairs. The one I bought in August was $10 at one of the many beach shops.

I'm not sure about Myrtle Beach area (because it's the beach), but everywhere else all those items will be drastically reduced. If you can still find them in your area, they might be a lot cheaper than at MB. Still....even at MB you can get a good price on them. If you have room in your car or suitcase...buy them now. (but I never found them to be overpriced at MB)

I have always found very good prices in MB and as we near the end of the season they may even get better.

Went to a place called Eagles while we were there a few weeks ago and they had TONS of beach stuff for a very good price! I would probably just buy when you get there.

There is a K-Mart on Hwy. 17 that has great sales on beachy items this time of year. Bet you could find exactly what you're looking for there for pretty cheap.

Eagles, Wings, etc are always running specials, and now that the season is winding down a bit they will probably be even more aggressive with them. Plus, there is a kmart and least one wal-mart in the area as well.

You can miss the EAGLES, WINGS stores. They are each side of the road just south of the airport. All kinds of stuff for your beach trip.

Enjoy.
