A huge “Open Up S.C.” rally was held today in Columbia.

This, after Myrtle Beach Mayor Brenda Bethune went on CNN on April 21st stating she worried about a second wave of infections.

In that interview, Mayor Bethune said the city remained closed.

Today, however, the Myrtle Beach Advisory committee stated: “We feel there’s a therapeutic value to opening the beach,” Chairman Steve Taylor said. “It’s also symbolic for us to taking baby steps to returning to some sense of normalcy.

HUGE SC RALLY

After the State Capital rally gained national headlines, the City of Myrtle Beach said it may open as early as next week.

Regardless of where locals stand on that issue, area merchants asked us, “Should Mayor Bethune set the example by closing Better Brands until all private businesses in the city are fully open?

An entire group would include local restaurants featuring indoor dining.
