Features
Value, Eclectic

This decades-old department store is on Tybee Island, a 20-minute drive away from downtown Savannah, but it’s well worth the journey. A Chinese-family-owned shop that has been operational since the 1930s, its motto is, “If it’s something you use, you’ll find it at Chu’s.” That’s as accurate as it is charming, and wandering around the seemingly ramshackle interior, you’ll marvel at the sheer scale of items on offer, whether it’s paintbrushes, an air-conditioning unit, flu remedies, or beachwear. Chu’s is a refreshing throwback that has survived thanks to its sheer character, and is highly recommended.
