Snowbirds spin the BI-LO prize wheel to win free prizes.​

In North Myrtle Beach, store associates let all their customers know they come first – even ones who don’t live in the area year-round.

Many of the so called “Snowbirds,” who come and stay for the winter months year after year, have been coming for decades. These winter visitors recognize the value of staying at the beach when temperatures are milder than in other parts of the country. Although they may have came here to escape from snow, some keep returning because of the experiences.

The North Myrtle Beach Chamber of Commerce Convention and Visitors Bureau hosted its annual “We Love Our Snowbirds” reception Feb. 13 and BI-LO joined in the appreciation.

In addition to prizes attendees at the event at Myrtle Beach Mallreceived special "Snowbird" discounts from various mall retailers.

BI-LO offered attendees a prize wheel, which gave them the chance to win koozies, jar openers, gift cards and more. BI-LO also provided information on Fuelperks! Rewards program and handed out brochures to educate the snowbirds about how to save on groceries and gas at the same time.

“Being a part of this event and welcoming the snowbirds was a great opportunity to educate them on the special offerings at BI-LO, the community involvement and the grocer as a whole,” said Darrell Jones, director at BI-LO store No. 5105. “Our goal is to always welcome them and let them know that BI-LO is here to help with their grocery needs while they are escaping to the sunny sandy beaches of Myrtle Beach.”
