Del Sol this week opened its newest store on the Caribbean island of St. Kitts under store owner Panchito Morales who also owns Del Sol stores in Antigua; Roatan, Honduras; Turks & Caicos and Belize. Del Sol is the only retailer on the island selling exclusively clothing and accessories that change colors with sunlight.
The Del Sol store is located in a recently renovated retail space within the cruise ship terminal shopping center only a minute’s walk from the cruise ships. The store is managed and staffed by local employees and is open to cruise passengers and local clientele. The new store is approximately 800 square feet and is located in the same shopping center as its sister brand, Cariloha, which is a separate retailer selling clothing, bedding and bath goods made from eco-friendly bamboo.
Del Sol has been rapidly expanding its international and domestic presence for the past 20 years now with more than 100 retail locations in 28 countries. Del Sol stores are found in Mexico, Grand Cayman, Jamaica, Barbados, Aruba, Curacao, Honduras, St. Maarten, Bahamas, Antigua, Bonaire and various cities throughout the continental U.S., Alaska and Hawaii.
Additional Del Sol store openings are planned in late November and December 2014 and quarter one of 2015 in various cities throughout the United States. Independently owned Del Sol stores are operated by licensed, contracted partners of Del Sol, L.C.
All Del Sol store guests receive a color-changing demonstration and a free color-changing ring just for stopping by the store, which helps proliferate Del Sol’s fun-in-the-sun culture and store experience even more. Del Sol staffers encourage visitors to try out the color-changing clothing and accessories in the store with their Sun Stations, which simulate the UV rays of the sun.
Located in the Eastern Caribbean about 1,200 miles from Miami, this small island is intoxicatingly beautiful. Its sunny skies, warm waters, and white sandy beaches combine to make St. Kitts one of the most attractive islands in the Caribbean. Christopher Columbus first spotted St. Kitts in 1493, when it was populated with native tribes, but the Europeans didn’t colonize until the British arrived in 1623.
