The Shoppes at Carlsbad
Carlsbad destination expands options in time for holiday shopping
Posted on December 3, 2018
The Shoppes at Carlsbad continues to enhance its shopping experience with unique, local, and popular additions in its multi-phase transformation. Recent new openings of both retail and dining spots breathe reinvigorated excitement and interest into the North County shopping destination.
Popular Hawaii-based retailer SoHa Living (short for “South of Hawaii”) offers a mix of home and gift items inspired by the islands and embodying a lifestyle of leisure, vacation, discovery, coastal chic, and tropical luxury. Because we can always use a little aloha in our life — and it’s just so fun to say — we love the “Wish You a Mele Kalikimaka” wood sign to add to our holiday décor. And, their Signature Diffuser is an ideal hostess gift for every holiday party on your calendar this season.
To dress things up, the trendy Forever 21 features 24,000 square feet of the hottest current fashions at a great value with new merchandise brought in daily, and Windsor Fashions delivers its signature selection of party dresses and separates for flirty, fun looks that won’t cut into your gift-giving budget. Shoppers wanting to keep it more casual can find all the latest athletic looks from top to toe at the center’s new Foot Locker location.
If the holiday season is leaving you a little tired, enjoy a quick caffeine pick-me-up at Leap Coffee. Its spot at The Shoppes at Carlsbad is the Carlsbad-based specialty coffee roastery’s first location outside of its popular headquarters found just a few miles south. Known for its attention to detail and a more “home-like” coffee house experience, Leap works to acquire the highest quality beans possible from carefully selected global growing regions through strong relationships with the growers and distributers. Craving something sweet? Try out the unique, made-to-order, and fully customizable ice cream at Sweet Cloud Creamery. Starting with four base options — dairy, vegan, sorbet, and chocolate made with British Cadbury Cocoa — customers then choose from 30 flavors ranging from Alphonso Mango to Bubble Gum, 30 add-ins including marshmallows, Oreos, and strawberries, plus 30 toppings and sauces. Liquid nitrogen freezes the ice cream base in mere seconds for a truly custom-crafted treat.
Other planned openings at The Shoppes at Carlsbad include Sunglass Hut, Beshock Ramen, and Go Juice — just in time for the holiday shopping season. theshoppesatcarlsbad.com
