Shelter Cove Towne Center Bringing Jobs, Excitement

Posted: Updated:

ATTENTION SHOPPERS!! Soon there will be a new place to drop your dough.

Shelter Cove Towne Center will be just what Hilton Head needs according to manager, Roni Allbritton.

"It's going to be an open-air center and that's what our market craves, we have a beautiful climate here and we will have festivals and events will be a plus for everyone in the community."

The $76 million project is set to create 450 new jobs, and it's even swaying long-term businesses to move in, including Heritage Fine Jewelry who leave its 24-year location at Pineland Station.

"The new town center is centrally located, we feel that we will get more tourists than we're getting in Pineland, and we need a new look."

But that decision didn't come lightly for the family-run business, but their current location just wasn't a right fit any longer.

"Pineland has needed some renovation for quite a while, and we're excited to hear that is a possibility for them down the road, but at this time we feel that this new town center was exactly what we were looking for."

Other tenants felt the same, Belks, Kroger, a new Serg Group restaurant and Joseph A Banks are among the list to move in, and officials say that'll be happening very soon.

"The Kroger store is expected to open by mid-December, the fuel center probably a week before that, smaller shops will be in phases starting in late November through early spring 2014," said Allbritton.

For Heritage Jewelry, they plan to move in in March, and they say its going to be worth the wait.

The whole Shelter Cove project -- including the open air mall, restaurants, park, and apartments -- is set to be completed in 2015.
