Palmetto Moon, a Southern lifestyle gift retailer, will open its newest store in the Epps Bridge Centre, located at 1791 Oconee Connector, Suite 460 next to Guitar Center in Athens, Georgia on Saturday, July 24, 2021. Palmetto Moon serves as a one-stop shop for fashion, outdoor apparel, gifts, shoes, accessories, collegiate gear, drinkware, and more for the Southern at heart.
The store will host a two-day Grand Opening Celebration on July 24 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Sunday, July 25 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The store is excited to welcome guests for two days of family fun including:
Spin-to-Win prizes every 15 minutes with freebies from popular brands
Hourly prizes from favorite brands such as YETI, Chubbies, LAKA and Columbia
Grand prize giveaways including a huge YETI Tundra Haul
YETI Rambler 12oz. Colster to the first 200 shoppers each day (with qualifying $30 purchase)
“We are so excited to expand our presence in Georgia,” says Palmetto Moon Chief Brand Officer Amber Dube. “From our humble beginnings as a kiosk in Charleston, South Carolina in 2002 to now having 29 brick-and mortar locations in six states across the Southeast and counting is a huge privilege, and one we never take for granted.”
Palmetto Moon is known for its “customer first” service and hand-picked showcase of brands that celebrate the Southern lifestyle. Unlike mass merchants, Palmetto Moon’s philosophy is to merchandise unique gifts that local customers will delight in.
The new Athens store will offer popular brands including YETI, Southern Marsh, Chubbies, Hey Dude, Brumate and Local Boy, as well as local and up-and-coming brands, University of Georgia collegiate gear, Palmetto Moon’s exclusive line, and custom goods designed specifically for Athens shoppers.
“Athens was the perfect fit for our next location because of the city’s warm Southern hospitality and location steps away from the University of Georgia’s North Campus. We are confident our integrated buying and in-store experience will resonate really well with customers here,” added Dube.
With an open floor plan spanning over 7,000 square feet, customers can easily shop dedicated departments in Home & Gifts, Men’s, Women’s, Children, Collegiate and Footwear, as well as feature displays for trending brands and emerging products. The store design is bright and airy with an abundance of natural light and features stylized fitting rooms reminiscent of a cozy Southern front porch.
“We authentically reflect the different facets of Southern life in all that we do, from the way we interact with our customers to the product assortment displayed throughout our stores. Our retail formula offers a shopping destination for all generations, as well as the ability to shop in one place,” says Palmetto Moon Chief Executive Officer John Thomas.
With the addition of the new Athens location, Palmetto Moon is now a 29-store Southeastern retail chain.
