If you’ve been in the Lowcountry long enough, you’re probably familiar with Shades of Charleston.

The locally-owned store has been a one-stop shop for all your lifestyle-based needs, from Ray-Ban sunglasses to Free Fly hats, since it first opened in Mount Pleasant in September 2012.

Well, folks, we’ve got good news. The business has announced that it’s headed for West Ashley across from Captain D’s and Boxcar Betty’s at 1917 Savannah Hwy. Here’s a peek at the upcoming shop.

While an opening date hasnt been announced yet, we’ll keep y’all posted. In the meantime, head to the Mount Pleasant or Sullivans Island locations.

We think it goes without saying, but this is a great small business to check out for your holiday gift needs. Shades has even made it easy with its gift guide. Wink wink.
