MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCBD) – The future of grocery shopping will be headed to the Town of Mount Pleasant.
Plans for a new drive-thru grocery store were approved Wednesday night during a Design Review Board meeting in Mt. Pleasant.
The store, Opie Grocery, describes itself as an incredibly fast and convenient solution for quick grocery trips. According to co-founder, Tyler Sones, following the arrival on location and placing your order, the groceries you selected will be in your vehicle after only 4 minutes.
The drive-thru store will also offering more than just food, they will be also be selling beer and wine.
Sones says they’ve had the idea for sometime,”We’ve had the idea for a while actually, one of our teammates came back from the grocery store, soaking wet from all the rain and said, man, ‘I wish there was a better way to get Poptarts.”
Sones says the store name, ‘Opie’ is from The Andy Griffith Show. The team chose it after deciding on a retro theme that the show, and character, ‘Opie Taylor’ embody.
The store will be located along Highway 17 North at Weaver Circle near the Mount Pleasant Towne Centre and will be open in September of this year.
