LOCAL RETAILERS FORM MIDDLE KING SHOPPING DISTRICT DOWNTOWN
A group of local, downtown Charleston businesses have banded together to highlight what they are calling MiKi (Middle King Shopping District). Partnering retailers are located on the strip of historic King Street between Calhoun and Market streets that are home to some of Charleston’s oldest and most beloved stores.
The family of Middle King Street retailers formed to make the local Charleston shopping experience better, more convenient, and safer than ever.
MiKi perks include contactless product delivery throughout the Lowcountry, regular email updates featuring roundups of what’s new and notable throughout MiKi, exclusive events, and more.
MiKi stores offer contactless delivery throughout the Lowcountry on the following schedule:
• Mondays: Downtown, West Ashley, James Island
• Tuesdays: Kiawah, Seabrook, John’s Island
• Wednesdays: Mount Pleasant, Sullivan’s Island, Isle of Palms
• Thursdays: Daniel Island, Park Circle
Participating MiKi retailers include: Croghan’s Jewel Box, Hampden, M. Dumas & Sons, Grady Ervin & Co., M.P. Demetre Jewelers, Shoes on King, Jordan Lash, Jackson Davenport, Palm Avenue, and Finicky Filly.
Rhett Outten, co-owner of Croghan’s Jewel Box, explained that Covid and Amazon have taken a toll on locally owned retailers, “We formed the Middle King Shopping District because we saw a need to let locals and visitors alike know that King Street is OPEN, King Street is safe and King Street needs your support!”
Outten urged Daniel Islander’s to take advantage of the Thursday delivery day by ordering by 4 p.m. on Wednesday, “Each day we will be delivering items from our 10 partnering local businesses to an area of Charleston -- direct to our consumers! So Daniel Island? Your day is Thursday! Hit up the stores over the phone or via email throughout the week and expect King Street to arrive on your doorstep!”
