Popular home furnishings and decor retailer Pottery Barn is coming to Northwest Florida. The company announced Thursday that it would open its first Northwest Florida store at Sandestin’s Grand Boulevard Town Center next spring.
The original Pottery Barn was opened by Paul and Morris Secon in 1949 in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood. Owned by Williams-Sonoma since 1986, the company focuses on exclusive and high-end home wares. The nearest current store to the planned Sandestin location is located at the Eastern Shore Center in Spanish Fort, Ala.
“Pottery Barn is among the most well-known and desirable brands in the country. We are thrilled they are opening in Grand Boulevard. They are the ideal tenant to complement our growing mix of the best retailers out there,” said Stacey Brady, marketing and communications director for Grand Boulevard at Sandestin.
Pottery Barn joins a growing list of new retailers opening at Grand Boulevard, including Anthropologie, Vineyard Vines, and Lilly Pulitzer, all of which made their Northwest Florida debuts at the Town Center earlier this year.
The 12,000-square-foot Pottery Barn store will be located in a new building which neighbors the most recent addition to Grand Boulevard on the west side of the Town Center, across from the Boulevard 10 Cinema.
