Periwinkle Place to stage huge Memorial Day Weekend event

By Staff | May 27, 2010

Sanibel Island’s popular Periwinkle Place Shopping Center plans to celebrate Memorial Day with something for everyone at their Memorial Day Weekend 2010 Event and Sidewalk Sale.

The shopping center, located at 2075 Periwinkle Way, is the island’s premier shopping destination with 27 shops and eateries situated in a seven-acre, park-like setting.

Memorial Day Weekend 2010 will showcase spectacular deals with up to 50 percent off selected items all weekend and be highlighted by multi-faceted, family-fun events on Saturday, May 29 including:

• Hot Chili Rods Car Show from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

• Remote Radio Broadcast by WOLZ 95.3, with Amy Lynn from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

• Fashion Show featuring the latest styles from Periwinkle Place shops – Chico’s, Fresh Produce, Synergy, Island Pursuit and Trader Rick’s from noon to 2 p.m.

As a special bonus, the first 150 visitors to Peach Republic will receive a coupon, — valid May 29 only — for a free single scoop ice cream cone at Periwinkle Place’s Chocolate Expressions store.

Shopping at Periwinkle Place is a “can’t miss” destination for residents and visitors alike. Covered walkways make it easy to visit all the shops rain or shine. Lush landscaping includes a butterfly garden and native plants while fountains and a children’s play area add to the park setting. Shops cover all the bases from designer beachwear and men and women’s clothing to gourmet goodies and gifts, original island art, elegant jewelry and unique toys.
