Robin Roberts celebrates occasion in Mississippi with fans

Pass Christian, Miss. (WLOX) - Robin Roberts returned to her home state of Mississippi, over the weekend.

It was standing room only at Robert’s family-owned store, Robin's Nest in the Pass, on the Gulf Coast as the store celebrated its 4th anniversary.

Star-struck fans were treated to special appearances by both Sally-Ann Roberts and Robin Roberts, who lined up to get signed copies of her most recent book. The boutique is run by Dorothy Roberts, and Robin spoke about her sister's hard work in keeping the store open and what local businesses mean to the Gulf Coast community she loves so much.

"My sister opened this beautiful store four years ago, Robins Nest in the Pass and I’m just so grateful to see people who are shopping local and supporting the Roberts family. I am so proud of the Pass and I am so proud of the Gulf Coast. We come out and support and love one another,” said Roberts.

After snapping up a selfie with the Roberts sisters, customers could also leave donations for the Leukemia Lymphoma Society.
