Just a few minutes north of Sarasota on the interstate is the largest outlet mall in the Tampa Bay/Sarasota area. It is in Ellenton. Their website is www.primeoutlets.com -You will then click on store locations and then click on the Ellenton, Fl location. They have a ton of stores w/ lots of designers represented. St. Armands Circle on St. Armands Key is a very fun shopping experience - but designed (and priced) for tourists and local wealthy residents.

Sarasota offers plenty of different shopping experiences. St. Armand's is nifty...but becoming more generic...Chico's, The Gap...etc...but does have some nice independent shops. Downtown Sarasota has a few different options...Main St. has some nice shops...and the Burns Ct. area does as well.

Southgate (a Westfield Shopping Town--oh well) is a pleasant little mall just off the north end of Siesta Key....with a Burdines....Siesta Village has a few nice locally run shops...
