A Shopaholic’s Paradise
Longboat Key Shopping – Sarasota Shopping
Whether you’re a shopaholic or simply looking for a souvenir with which to remember your
vacation, Longboat Key is your shopping destination.
St. Armands Circle | 300 Madison Drive
Just across the bridge from Longboat Key lies a shopper’s paradise filled with fine stores, boutiques and gourmet restaurants. This charming Circle dotted with courtyards and tropical flowers boasts more than 130 businesses offering everything from high-fashion clothing to souvenir T-shirts.
The Chart House | 200 block of Gulf of Mexico Drive
Located to your left as you enter Longboat Key via the New Pass Bridge, you’ll find a shopping center that offers a unique experience. Enjoy the expansive views of Sarasota Bay as you browse at stores, including an art gallery, and grab lunch overlooking the water.
Shoppes of Bay Isles | 2600 block of Gulf of Mexico Drive
Stock up on groceries, get a manicure and pick up prescriptions and drycleaning at the newly redeveloped Shoppes of Bay Isles. This shopping center is your one-stop shop, with a grocery store, pharmacy, beauty salon and more. The new 49,533-square-foot Publix opened in December 2012. The store is one of three nationwide to be built as a similar prototype— the store includes a hot bar, Pacific wok station and cold bar, plus a wine-chilling station to keep your beverage of choice at the perfect temperature while you finish shopping.
The Centre Shops | 5300 block of Gulf of Mexico Drive
Take a stroll through the plaza as you wander in and out of boutiques or enjoy a meal. Also located at the Centre Shops, are the Longboat Key Education Center and Longboat Key Chamber of Commerce Visitor Center.
Whitney Beach Plaza | 6800 block of Gulf of Mexico Drive
This shopping plaza, located at the north end of Longboat Key, is home to a restaurant, a salon, dry cleaning kiosk and a new liquor store. The shopping center recently underwent a renovation and will likely have new tenants in the near future.
