Few companies can claim this remarkable accomplishment: A company with a historical backbone, with longevity, perseverance and integrity at its core. It’s especially rare to see a local company in a resort market stay in business for three-quarters of a century!
Established on September 19, 1947, Mabel & James Dew opened Dew Company on Main Street in what was then, Ocean Drive Beach. It was the epitome of the old-fashioned neighborhood store where everyone stopped by for a cup of coffee; got caught up on the local news and happenings; and checked-out the latest and greatest appliances and supplies.
Now operated by second generation owners, Teressa, Linley and Joe, DEWS continues to stand on the principles of trust, convenience, responsiveness and service after the sale. Through their friendly staff and helpful team of specialists, DEWS strives for personalized customer attention, quality and value-added service. “We strive to return that personalized attention to the consumer that has taken a back seat to discount volume and corporate bottom lines,” says Teressa Dew. “It has been our way of life for 75 years!” Many of the original customers and their families still entrust their appliance and HVAC needs to DEWS.
“We are here for the long haul. We want to be the best,” said Linley Dew. “We don’t want to just sell a customer something. We have and always will provide a customer with what they need – today, tomorrow and, hopefully, for the next 75 years.”
In celebration of this landmark event, DEWS is hosting 12-weeks of giveaways starting the week of September 12th through the week of November 28th. Join DEWS on-site at 2203 Hwy. 17 South, Suite 2, North Myrtle Beach for their commemoration of the official opening of DEWS, September 19th from 3:00 – 6:00 pm.
