Palm Desert soon will be home to California’s only Sundance clothing, accessories and home décor store – the 19th in the country for the company founded by film legend Robert Redford.

The store, an extension of the Sundance Catalog and online sales, is expected to open in mid-November at 73-545 El Paseo, Suite 110.

The popular catalog was started in Sundance Village, a community founded by Redford in 1969 when he purchased land at the base of Mount Timpanogos in the Wasatch Mountains of Utah. 

At the base of the village was a small general store, the popularity of which began to grow with customers frequently writing in to request special items they had seen while visiting, according to the history outlined on the Sundance Catalog website.
