Our Story

Amy and Loren have been coming to these beautiful barrier islands for 32 years. 

In 2004, after 23 years in the corporate retail world, they moved to Kiawah Island, and opened their first store, SeaCoast Sport and Outfitters.  They now have eight stores in South Carolina and Illinois (five stores in Freshfields Village), are proudly locally owned and operated, and try to feature local and regional products whenever possible.  When not on the islands, Amy and Loren still spend time in Chicago, visiting their family, helping to run a large charter school network in the inner-city, and enjoying the vast and amazing Chicago restaurant scene.  They also enjoy and collect wine, and spend 2-3 weeks each year in wine regions all over the world.
