Sandy City Offers Great Shopping Options

Think you have to go to Salt Lake City or Park City to find great shopping? Think again. If you’re looking for diversity that ranges from upscale stores to unique mom-and-pop shops as well as big box stores and great deals, look no further than Sandy City.

Choice and Convenience

Sandy City is proud to offer easy access to great shopping. Not only is parking free throughout the city, making shopping trips more cost-effective and stress-free, but many stores are within walking distance of TRAX light rail public transit.

Shopping centers also provide family amenities, making shopping easier and more comfortable than ever. “South Towne Center offers a wide array of family amenities including a carousel, mini train, a free kids play area and family restrooms that include a nursing room. These amenities make shopping easy and enjoyable for the entire family,” says Alicia Rutledge, South Towne marketing manager.

Nothing is more impressive, however, than the wide array of shopping itself. “Sandy is becoming the ‘downtown’ for the south end of the valley,” says Stan Parish, president of the Sandy Chamber of Commerce.            

At the South Towne Center—Sandy’s premier shopping mall—patrons can shop at national retailers and local shops alike. National stores range from stores such as Vans, Zumiez, Buckle, Gymboree and Eddie Bauer to department stores such as REI, JCPenney and Dillards. No matter what you’re looking for, you’re likely to find it at South Towne.

Locally owned stores add variety and create a unique shopping experience as well. Sun Stop Sunglasses is your one-stop-shop for designer sunglasses. Stores like Bohme, Chic Belle, Pink Petal, Head Over Heels and Justify’D offer fashion, apparel and accessory options you can’t find anywhere else. At Vinl 4 Décor ‘n More, shoppers can choose among custom home décor accents and pre-cast vinyl lettering. With so many great shops in just one place, South Towne Center has something for everyone.

And that’s not all. Shopping centers such as Union Square, Sandy Village and Little Cottonwood Shopping Center (just to name a few) make it so you never have to travel very far to get what you need.

Local and Unique

If a mall isn’t your style, Sandy has a variety of local stores bound to please any shopper. At Lil’ Raskals Boutique, shoppers can find a wide variety of children and baby clothing and accessories. Seasons Boutique offers fashionable clothing and accessory choices for women. And if you have a sweet tooth, Nothing Bundt Cakes and Sweetest Confessions are local spots bound to satisfy.

For the outdoor or sports enthusiast, Sandy was happy to welcome Scheels in September. Described as a combination of Cabela’s, Nordstrom and Dick’s Sporting Goods, Scheels has 225,000 square feet of space, a Ferris wheel and two large fish aquariums, and provides a shopping experience like no other.

“Sandy is an easy place to shop because of the convenience, more than adequate parking with no cost, and all of the opportunities you want. From high-end, high-fashion to discount and factory outlet stores to unique mom-and-pop stores, with a good mix of big-box stores and an auto mall, Sandy has it all,” Parish says.
