When It Fits, You Feel It!
For about the last 20 years, it has been almost mandatory to attach the word troubled to the front of Murrells Inlet's Inlet Square as in

Anway, the recent closing of this Penny's which was my goto place for towels at the beach, is yet another blow, and seemed to come very quickly after the announcement rather than dragging on like the closing of the Dutch Square Belk's.
The J C Penny at Coastal Grand looks to stay open, at least for now, so they still have a Grand Strand presence, but if this keeps up, the only reason to visit Inlet Square will be to see a movie or look at books you're going to buy online later at Books A Million.
I've been spending some time on the coast recently (Brookgreen Gardens had a nice little fall festival this weekend), and noticed this closing while driving by the terminally-ailing Inlet Square Mall where US-17 Business and US-17 Bypass come together at Murrells Inlet.
