Shopaholic? Well, you’re in luck, Dallas is a retail therapy paradise. From mega shopping centers and outlet malls to famous department stores, eclectic flea markets and chic boutiques, you’ve got options.
Arguably one of the best places for shopping in the entire state is NorthPark Center, a stunning 2,000,000 square-foot wonderland filled with spectacular stores, fabulous eateries and a 16-screen AMC theater. For those looking to splurge, there’s the Highland Park Village– the city’s premier destination for luxury shopping offering the latest fashions from posh boutiques like Fendi, Chanel, Hermès and Dior.
In the mood for a good bargain? Then Allen Premium Outlets, about 25 minutes from downtown Dallas, is a must. It’s the area's best place to score everything from designer duds to luggage, jewelry and housewares for 25% to 65% off retail prices. Speaking of bargains, one of the nation’s largest and oldest flea markets, First Monday Trade Days, is located about an hour from Dallas in Canton.
More shopping areas to check out include, the Knox-Henderson corridor where you’ll find Mexican imports at La Mariposa and unique toys at Froggie's 5 and 10. And for western-style home décor and gifts, head to the Anteks Home Furnishings in the Dallas Design District.
Lastly, no Big D shopping bucket list is complete without a stop downtown to visit two of Dallas’ most prestigious stores, Neiman Marcus and Forty Five Ten.
