When I moved back to the Gulf Coast from Charlotte (years ago!), I was so sad about the shopping. Or should I say the lack of shopping? One of my favorite places was Ulta; and I used to frequent my local "Ulta" store (which was conveniently about a mile away) every Saturday morning.
When we lived in Destin, finally an Ulta opened both in Destin and Panama City Beach. They opened less than a month after we moved back to Alabama. *Sheds tears*. A few years ago, yet another Ulta opened in D'Iberville, MS (outside of Biloxi). While this is a 90 mile haul from my home, occasionally I will make the trip with my Mother and sister. Especially since we can also visit the casinos along the Mississippi Gulf Coast while we're there....Hard Rock, anyone? :-)
NOW I'm so excited as not just one, but two, new Ulta locations are opening in my area! The Mobile store (above) is opening in about a month. And while I don't live in Mobile, I'm there once a week for work and will be able to visit anytime I want!
Also, there is a location opening in Daphne, which is where my sister lives and is "only" 40 miles away! The store is opening this Sunday, October 9. Mother, Amy and I will be there when the doors are opened for the first time! We're all very excited - they always have fantastic opening week "deals" - freebies, gifts with purchase, and drawings.
Ask me if my DH is as excited as I am? HAHA, he knows this is going to cost a little bit.
I can't wait until Sunday - I'll be sure to share my goodies with you in a future post. Do you like to shop at Ulta? And - do you prefer Ulta or Sephora?
Have a great day!
