SARASOTA, Fla., Aug. 23, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- This September, visitors to Sarasota County can enjoy deals and specials at area shopping locations during the "Shoptember" promotion. Visit Sarasota County (VSC) is joining with retailers, shopping districts and more throughout the region to promote deals and offerings.
"This is the second annual Shoptember program," says Virginia J. Haley, CDME, President of Visit Sarasota County. "September is historically a slower period for many of our tourism partners including shopping districts. Similar to our other successful promotions such as Savor Sarasota Restaurant Week and Sarasota Summer Stage that drive business during needed time periods, we aim to bring awareness of shopping districts and their offerings and ultimately drive visitation to these shopping amenities during this need period."
Shopping districts in the area include St. Armands Circle, Lakewood Ranch, the Mall at University Town Center, Venice Main Street, Historic Palm Avenue and the Shoppes at Sarasota Row in downtown. Shopping for major brands is possible at places like Westfield's Sarasota Square and the Ellenton Outlet Mall and visitors can peruse local shops along Dearborn Street in Englewood and in the Gulf Gate neighborhood.
Deals range from passport savings to various retailers to Florida resident rates and deals at area hotels. A full list of deals and information can be found at www.SarasotaShoptember.com
Shoptember in Sarasota County lasts the entire month of September 2017.
