The Oceanfront Merchants Association


The Oceanfront Merchants Association is a non-profit organization formed in the fall of 2006 by several concerned business and property owners on the oceanfront in downtown Myrtle Beach. In the wake of the iconic Pavilion amusement park closing in 2006, this group saw a need to not let the unfortunate closing of the Ocean Boulevard’s largest and best known entertainment attraction send the area into a downward economic spiral.  This group decided instead to be proactive in their business community and pool their efforts to promote the downtown as the city’s only seaside family-fun vacation and entertainment destination in the heart of the Grand Strand with dozens of exciting attractions, gift shops, restaurants, arcades, and more within walking distance to many of the beaches best hotels.
