Monkee’s of Myrtle Beach is an upscale boutique owned and operated by an aunt and niece team. Mandi Reaves and Sonya Martin are local to the area and were eager to open a boutique with a homey atmosphere.

Monkee’s of Myrtle Beach carries clothing, shoes, accessories and gift items. Our shop is always fashion forward with an eye for future fashion trends. We pride ourselves on cutting-edge designer fashion in different price points. Our team provides an intimate shopping experience, always eager to make everyone’s shopping experience personal and pleasant. 

Monkee’s of Myrtle Beach is part of a small Southern franchise that originated in North Carolina over 25 years ago. All Monkee’s boutiques are individually owned and operated. Every store is unique and special while still having the support and resources of a professional and experienced corporate team. We are proud to be a part of such an authentic organization. 

Customers can shop Monkee’s through the storefront, web or social media. Our team has worked hard to make shopping an easy and enjoyable experience. This year, our goal is to expand the number of vendors we carry so we can offer the Grand Strand area fashion and products that have never been offered in this area. 

Our story is a success story. We opened our shop in September 2019 with enthusiasm, then unexpected adversity. Our grand opening was delayed two weeks due to Hurricane Dorian. That was followed by family illnesses and death. Then the pandemic! We have had great support from employees, family, friends, customers and our Monkee’s corporation! We are a true labor of love, dedication and loyalty. As Mandi quoted, “giving up isn’t an option.” Our family’s roots run deep in this community and our parents were both instrumental in growth and progress in this area. Owning and operating a business that serves this community is a joy and an honor. We love our community, and we are proud to serve and give back to our neighbors.
