King Street Profile

Charleston’s historic downtown remains the shopping and dining hub for the region. Downtown retail, anchored by King Street, draws a strong and varied customer base. With its remarkable history and eclectic mix of fashion, art, antiques, home décor, and extraordinary food, King Street is the most vibrant and distinctive downtown in America. King Street is a perfect blend of local, regional, and national shops that remains the place to be for retailers of all types.

Business and Neighborhood Services maintains a database of King Street properties. The database is updated by walking the length of King Street from Broad to Spring Street and taking inventory of vacant and/or transitioning storefronts, talking to retailers/owners/operators, and generally surveying the “King Street Experience.”
