Conway picking up valet parking

Look for bow ties and crisp shirts in the Rivertown.

Conway’s picking up valet parking.

City officials are preparing to enter an agreement with Shoreline Valet that will allow the company to offer the luxury service at businesses in the downtown area.

City Council must vote on the franchise contract twice before it becomes official, but this week leaders expressed support for the Myrtle Beach company’s proposal.

“This is awesome,” said Councilman William Goldfinch. “People love convenience. That’s just one more element of convenience.”

Shoreline President Tylar Miller approached the council after discussions with the Theatre of the Republic about providing valet service during evening performances. He’s also been in talks with the Rivertown Bistro about parking diners’ cars.
