We’re excited to be featured as a Platinum 100 member again for 2015, from the editorial team at Sarasota Magazine. This list is a curated selection of retailers and service providers in the Sarasota-Manatee area for the products offered, commitment to service, and overall atmosphere of each location.
From the magazine:
“Our luxury retail landscape in Sarasota-Manatee changed last fall with the much anticipated opening of The Mall at University Town Center, adding a number of high-end stores to the local mix, from Michael Kors and Robert Graham to Kate Spade and Tesla. But even before that, the Sarasota shopping scene has long offered top-of-the-line brands and unique products from stores both big and small.
Every year, our editors work to single out the top 100 luxury retailers for this issue—a challenge that continues to remind us of the excellence we have at our command here in antiques, apparel, home décor and more. Of course, luxury shopping is not only about the products available, but about the service and atmosphere the merchants provide. Our savvy shopping and style experts, Carol Tisch and Heather Dunhill, know firsthand exactly what each store on our Platinum 100 list offers in that regard.
In addition to the 100, we’ve also included a guide to our area’s top automobile and boat dealers, and you can go online to see a list of top galleries as well. We hope you’ll use our 2015-16 Platinum 100 as your year-round guide to the best in shopping Sarasota.
