Myrtle Beach

A Myrtle Beach family-owned electronics store is closing, after more than 20 years in business.

The owners of AVAC - Audio, Video and Appliance Corp. - say it's nearly impossible today to make money selling TVs and electronics, in competition with big box stores.

Sometime within the next 60 days, the store will liquidate and go out of business. Owner Keith Ferrell says he and his family started out 23 years ago as the place to go for Tvs.

But he says the profit margin on televisions has eroded to practically nothing

21st Century Distributing has announced plans for a "Reach For the Beach" Dealer Expo, which will take place Oct. 27 at the Kingston Plantation Resort in Myrtle Beach, S.C.
