Lettrs and Hidden Cove Treats and Treasures Open at Shelter Cove Harbour at Palmetto Dunes
New Businesses Expand Options at This Popular Hilton Head Island Waterfront Shopping and Dining Destination
HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (March 31, 2009) - Shelter Cove Harbour at Palmetto Dunes, a popular waterfront shopping and dining destination located in the heart of Hilton Head Island, S.C., recently added Lettrs, an expanded gift boutique, and Hidden Cove Treats and Treasures, a new coffee shop. These two new additions expand the shopping and dining options at Shelter Cove Harbour, a Mediterranean-style shopping center featuring a variety of unique apparel and gift shops, restaurants and art galleries.
Lettrs, which has operated a successful monogram gift store on Main Street for nearly five years, officially opened a second location at Shelter Cove Harbour earlier this month. Owner Debbie Timen, who recently tripled the size of her Main Street store to 1,700 square feet, said she thinks the new location will do well at Shelter Cove Harbour.
"We love Shelter Cove Harbour for the view and the people," said Timen. "It's a fun visitors' location with a lot of summer traffic."
The new location will offer similar items to its Main Street counterpart including photo albums, picture frames, key tags, glassware, bottle stoppers, jewelry cases, cell phone holders, beach bags, purses, towels and baby gifts. One new feature at the Shelter Cove location will be the addition of custom wedding invitations and other specialized stationery design services.
All items in the store can be personalized with the buyer's initials or name. The store also offers custom monogramming services for items bought outside of the store and can return the items the next day if necessary.
"We're a great place for people with unique names to find things for themselves," said Shawn Timen, the manager of the new 1,200-square-foot Lettrs location at Shelter Cove Harbour. "We can help them get things for themselves with whatever spelling they like."
Lettrs is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday. The store will be open until 9 p.m. during the summer and can be reached by phone at 843-842-3003.
Hidden Cove Treats and Treasures is a new gourmet sweets and gift shop offering coffee, espresso, tea, smoothies and more than a dozen varieties of fudge. Hidden Cove plans to offer more fudge flavors this summer. The family-run store also sells gifts such as jewelry, home décor and souvenirs.
Owner Marianne Kelly said she jumped at the chance to open the new confectionary and drink shop in such a beautiful area of Hilton Head Island.
"It was a great opportunity," Kelly said. "It seemed like the perfect place to open our store because there is nothing else like it in the area."
Customers can enjoy the view of the marina from the outdoor seating on the patio, or take their order to go while they continue shopping outdoors. The store is open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. every day and will stay open later in summer. For more information, please call Hidden Cove Treats and Treasures at 843-341-2211.
