MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. -Myrtle Beach "Senior Sample Days" kick off in May with a deep discount for seniors, age 55 and up, at WonderWorks at Broadway at the Beach, 1313 Celebrity Circle in Myrtle Beach.
Thanks to Senior Sample Days, on Sundays, Monday and Tuesdays during May, seniors can be admitted to WonderWorks for just $9.99 per person, plus tax.
This inaugural promotion serves as the launch for Senior Sample Days, a new way for seniors to try out Myrtle Beach's many attractions and entertainment destinations.
The City of Myrtle Beach's Senior Advisory Committee came up with the idea following a discussion with Myrtle Beach Mayor John Rhodes. The committee's goal was to get seniors actively involved and serving as ambassadors for the area.
"We see two main benefits from Senior Sample Days. First, seniors have a chance to visit local attractions and destinations and then share those experiences with other guests and visitors," said Mark Kruea, public information officer for the City of Myrtle Beach.
"Second, a participating business benefits from offering senior customers a significant savings during off-peak times. It lets seniors explore our fun activities and then, through word-of-mouth, encourage other people to try them."
The Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce invites other businesses to participate in Senior Sample Days. A signature discount for a defined period of time is needed, and should be a unique promotion for seniors.
