5 Retail-friendly cities to visit

New York City is the fashion industry capital of the country, but these destinations are fierce competitors when it comes to retail therapy. We give you the inside scoop on the best cities for shopping in the United States.

5 Retail-friendly cities to visit

Stella's on 21st in Portland is home to distinctive art and handmade jewelry.


Like Philadelphia, Portland's shopping scene is sans tax, so you can load up on all of the thrift store and designer label finds you want. Downtown has big-name retailers like Nordstrom and Macy's, as well as a number of independent shops, but the Northwest/Nob Hill neighborhood is the best place for Portland-designed threads. Top picks for locally made accessories include Stella's on 21st and Gilt (great vintage pieces here, too!), while Sloan Boutique is all about quality and value with clothing from Kensie Girl and Tulle.
