Destin, FL (PRWEB) January 18, 2008
Southern Waters Outfitters, which opened in mid-December, is the newest store to open in Grand Boulevard at Sandestin®. With convenient proximity to the area's top Santa Rosa beach hotel, Courtyard Sandestin at Grand Boulevard is offering luxurious accommodations to accompany a deluxe shopping destination.
This Orange Beach, Alabama-based company started out in 2001 as a small fly fishing shop, carrying quality gear, outdoor clothing and sportswear. As they like to describe it, it all began "with an attitude of fun and friends." Within a short period of time, Southern Waters Outfitters began to focus more on becoming the "go to" place for the very best in men, women and children's outdoor-inspired sportswear and accessories, which now makes up the bulk of their business.
"We carry nothing but the best specialty sportswear," says Rich Haag, founder and CEO of the company. "The brands we carry are not the ones you would find in your average department store." The new Grand Boulevard store offers a fun and easy atmosphere in which to shop, and that is by design, according to Haag. "The store is designed to look like a warehouse or a loft. The tables and shelves are antiques," he says.
Only the fourth store to open, the new town center provided an ideal location for his growing company. "We have been looking to get into Sandestin for a while and Grand Boulevard was a perfect fit," says Haag. "I felt Grand Boulevard would be naturally geared toward the type of clientele that desire our products."
As Grand Boulevard is beginning to flourish and the amount of new store openings begins to grow, Courtyard Sandestin is excited for the new additions in the area. Giving guests a good excuse to stay a little longer and shop, this family-friendly hotel offers deluxe Destin, Florida accommodations right in the heart of Sandestin's bustling town center. As part of the Sandestin Golf & Beach Resort, the Courtyard allows guests to experience deluxe resort amenities with the convenience of a complimentary shuttle. Highlighted by a perfectly tropical environment, this hotel is complimented by seven on-site restaurants and outdoor pool, whirlpool, day spa and salon, and state-of-the-art fitness center, the Courtyard Sandestin is an oasis of tranquility in the hub of Sandestin activity.
Experience all the excitement that surrounds Grand Boulevard at Sandestin, while staying at one of the most loved Destin hotel's in the area.
