Welcome to Surfside PX
Surfside PX is a non-profit thrift store whose mission is to help out Disabled Veterans.
All merchandise is donated by folks like you. We cannot purchase items for resale or accept items on consignment without jeopardizing our non-profit status. Because we are a non-profit organization, we are not required to charge the South Carolina / Horry County 8% sales tax!
So not only can you get quality items at great prices when you shop with us, you save again when you do not have to add a sales tax!
100% of the benefits from the proceeds of all sales are ear-marked for our chosen three Charities whose mission statement mirrors ours: Helping Disabled Veterans
Donate, Shop and Volunteer with us and Never forget to thank Veterans for our wonderful US-way of life!

Scott and Danielle are now officially "retired " from daily management of the PX. Audrey and Gary are taking over the duties with great gusto. Alan is back from his medical leave and is putting out more and more hardware items and tools.
Mary Beth is always finding ways to make the Arts & Crafts department a great place to source your projects with unbelievable prices. Dee is our “I can do anything you need to have done” gal. Thank you Dee. Cheryl our snowbird volunteer went back to colder climes, says she'll be back next year if they pick to come to Myrtle Beach for the winter. Mary, our latest volunteer is a little dynamo as per Audrey! Please come down to the PX and meet with them all and catch up on the latest happenings.
A very special recognition/thanks to Charlene Blanton from Caring Transitions LLC. Charlene has been delivering her client's donations to the PX when there is not enough to warrant for us to rent a truck for pick up. Charlene, we are again endebted to you - Thank You, Thank You.
We are now functioning under our SUMMER hours. This means that we are open 4 days per week Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday 10 am to 4 pm.
Our eBay store is also running a sale at 50% off - check it out . Please remember to keep your packaging materials to donate to the PX, especially bubble wrap, air bladders and Styrofoam peanuts. That helps us lower shipping costs for our eBay store.
We had a loss in the PX family this past December. Scott's dad and big sponsor for the PX passed way at the age of 99 years and 3 weeks. It was thanks to him, a retired Sargent Major of the Marine Corps, that the PX was able to open a Brokerage account and it was thanks to him that the PX is in great financial shape. Should you, or any one you know, want help grow the PX's investment portfolio, please let us know.
We’re Always Looking for New Volunteers:
Want to get involved? Please join us. We have loads to do at all levels of the organization and if you want to keep active and engaged, we surely could use your help and special talents in meeting our mission of raising funds for Disabled Vets.
After completing 5 years of service, Scott and Danielle are now officially retired as store managers. We are always actively looking for interested folks to support Audrey and Gary who have stepped up to the challenge of leading the PX to even greater heights. When you come in to shop, please make a point of meeting these two wonderful folks. They are both committed to do all they can to meet our mission statement to help Disabled Veterans.
Thank you all for being part of Surfside PX's extended family and please always remember to thank Veterans for our freedoms and wonderful US-way of life!
