Shopaholics: Look No Further Than Palm Beach
The Town of Palm Beach has out done itself once again. This time, for its remarkable retail.
USA Today recently put out a list of “10 Best Destinations for Shopaholics” and the list places Palm Beach as number two. What qualifies Palm Beach as the second best region in the nation is the fact that, “every imaginable luxury good is on display,” according to the USA Today’s website. USA Today also mentioned the abundance of name brand resort wear and stores like Lily Pulitzer in the Town of Palm Beach. Along with quality of merchandise is the quality of the location. The sunny, blue skies Palm Beach Island offers, paired with the beautiful tropical weather, and close proximity to the ocean makes for a delightful shopping experience.
We contacted Angela Cruz Ledford, the Manager for Public Relations and Communications for Discover Palm Beaches, and asked her to elaborate for us:
