Drift, the newest addition to Mt. Pleasant’s shopping scene, is opening at 1440 Ben Sawyer Blvd. this weekend.

Owner Russell Robinson created Drift with Charleston’s travelers and beach dwellers in mind. “My fiance and I were in Hawaii for four years, where I managed the Volcom store and she opened a women’s boutique,” Robinson says. “We traveled a lot, and between that and our experience with managing stores, we decided to open Drift in Charleston.”

Their grand opening is 4-8 pm on Sat. Apr. 6. Expect music, giveaways, drinks, and an after-party at Triangle Bar, next door. “For women, we focus on bikinis, especially by Citrine which just launched at Fashion Week. We also have dress tops, jean shorts, and body gloves,” Robinson says. “For men, we have board shorts, T-shirts, hats, and more!”
