Those wanting Coastal Carolina University swag will no longer have to go to the campus in Conway to purchase it.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held last month for Teal Nation, a new store at Broadway at the Beach for alumni and current students to shop and to reach the more than 16 million tourists that visit the Grand Strand yearly. The store is in the Key West Village of Broadway at the Beach.

The store not only features some of the best Coastal gear, but it is also being used to draw in prospective students. It will have a touch screen that will have information about admissions, academic programs and the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) program.

“The store is going to allow our students the opportunity to learn firsthand how to operate a business,” General Manager of the General James Hackler Golf Course Chuck Johns said. “It will also be another venue off campus for you to find and learn about all things Coastal.”

The store is also offering new job opportunities to current and future students. Teal Nation will offer a 30% discount to CCU students, faculty and staff as well as Alumni Association and Chanticleer Athletic Foundation (CAF) members with a valid CINO ID or membership cards.

The University said there are plans to expand to an online store in the future.
