This spring Grand Boulevard at Sandestin will solidify its place as a retail destination for home furnishings with two words: Pottery Barn. Making its Northwest Florida debut, the national home design and furnishings retailer will span 12,000 square feet and will be located in a new building which neighbors the most recent addition to Grand Boulevard on the west side of the Town Center, across from the Boulevard 10 Cinema.

35 Years

Today’s Boutique is marketing its 35th anniversary milestone with trunk shows, events and sip-and-shop special sales. Jim and Kim Dettle opened Today’s Boutique in 1981 and helped pioneer Destin’s unique fashion scene. Today’s, a Best of the Emerald Coast winner for many years running, quickly evolved into an upscale, premier boutique with an eclectic mix of fashions for women.

Victoria’s Secret

Known for its artfully showcased collection of lingerie, swimwear, sleepwear, shoes, perfume and beauty products, received a makeover and expanded by 50 percent. A store dedicated to PINK was also added.



Colby Anderson and Luke Andrews, who both grew up in DeFuniak Springs and now live in Santa Rosa Beach, have opened their first retail store in Destin Commons. High Cotton Clothing Co. offers a variety of high quality classic clothing, shoes, jewelry and accessories made in the South for gentlemen and ladies. Their clothing brands, such as Coastal Cotton, Fish Hippie, Over Under, State Traditions and others, are all made in the U.S.A.

Wren’s Village Boutique

Also located at The Market Shops, will be the first in Florida to carry the Archer & Cove apparel line, which is based out of Mississippi. Founded in 2014 by Rosanne Hodges, this label features men’s and women’s T-shirts, tanks, hats, yoga/jogger pants, sweatshirts and decals.

Now, you can definitely shop ’til you drop with ease. Sacred Heart Health System’s newest outpatient center is now open at The Market Shops in Miramar Beach. Walk-in services are available seven days a week.
