Speaking at the opening, Lucy Gibson said “since opening the first Sand Dollar boutique in 2015 at the Fairmont, The Palm, we are delighted that the concept has become so in demand, that we are now here today celebrating the opening of our fourth standalone store. I initially created the brand to fill a gap in the market for a fast, efficient online beachwear shopping destination, bringing to the market must have trends, unique brands and luxury items that would serve both residents and tourists alike. Not only has our presence grown but also our offering, with the addition of womenswear brand ‘By Abigail Love’ which perfectly complements our existing range and we are thrilled that Abigail has joined us today to mark this special occasion.”

“We are excited to be launching in the dynamic UAE market with such a perfect partner as Sand Dollar” said Abigail Love. “I’ve received such a warm welcome here, with such a positive response from everyone I’ve met on each visit.
