There is no Smith's Grocery

There is no Smith's Grocery in Holden Beach. I am sure this is a mistake in the name of the area in which the store is located! Often times, Holden Beach is named as the jurisdiction of a crime, when the news media doesn't understand that the jurisdiction of Holden Beach does not go on the north side of the Intracoastal Waterway.

There is no Smith's Grocery

You are not 100% accurate because there are some areas north of the intercoastal that is under the jurisdiction of the Holden Beach police dept. Smith's is off Hwy 130 by Woody's so it has a mailing zip code of Holden Beach. That is why they are saying it's in Holden Beach.
