‘Taking home a part of the beach’: 30A-opoly to hit stores

“I’ve never seen a more impressive group of parents who rallied around an idea and made it happen in record time,” said Stacy Pritchett, owner of Seaside’s Mercantile and Duckie’s, both of which will carry the game. She said that just more than a month after signing on to be a sponsor, “It’s going to be on our shelf.”

Pritchett added the shop has already had dozens of pre-orders for the game by those who want to be among the first to gift it and play it.

Amavida owner Dan Bailey was ready to play when Uhlfelder proposed the idea at her favorite coffee shop.

“We pretty much always are” willing to support local charity efforts, said Casey Tindell who does PR and marketing for the Seaside and Rosemary coffee shops. The board will be for sale at both locations and Amavida will occupy the board’s “Rainy Day” spot.

“I am really excited about it,” said Ann Hartley, owner of Seagrove Village Market, which will also carry the game.

“It is an awesome opportunity for our area, as well as a fundraiser for the school,” she said.

“That’s so 30A,” said Maureen Paine, director of The Tree House. “Everyone helping everyone.”
