Silver Sands Celebrates 25 years

SANDESTIN, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - From Coach to Ralph Lauren, Nike and Saks Fifth Avenue, the Silver Sands Outlet Mall is full of many favorite shops, and now the outdoor mall is celebrating 25 years!

"We have been an integral part of the community for all these 25 years. We support a lot of non-profit charitable events. We're very engaged with our local community and we're just honored to be a part of this awesome location," said Silver Sands Premium Outlet Director of Marketing and Business Development, Katie Johnson.

The shopping center is home to more than 110 designer stores which helps keep the economy flowing and provides year-round jobs.

"It's just an amazing place for people to work and a great opportunity for people who want to get their foot in the door for the fashion industry. There is a lot of opportunities to move on with companies and have growth outside this area as well," said Johnson.

Silver Sands representatives said they are always looking to expand and have plans to renovate their play area in the courtyard for a place where a family can relax when they need a break from all their shopping.

"We look forward to just keeping on in being involved in the community. We sponsor over 60 local events every year, so we love being engaged without local community and reaching out and being that resource in the community is always rewarding," said Johnson.
