Old Town Scottsdale
This unique area, which consists of winding streets full of one-of-a-kind shops
and galleries, is often referred to as Fifth Avenue Shops.
This urban neighborhood development combines 70 high-end retailers and numerous fine-dining
opportunities along with residential living and offices spaces.
Scottsdale Fashion Square
Largest shopping mall in AZ and the Southwestern U.S., with approximately 2
million square feet of retail space and over 40 exclusive stores. It is among
the top 30 largest malls in the USA.
Because of the nice weather about 9 mos. out of the year, flea markets are very
popular here. The local favorite is the Mesa
Market with about 1600 outdoor covered booths.
Chance Bargain Shoes & Apparel
This is the close-out branch of Nordstromís which includes discontinued items
and returns. Shoes of every size, color and style take-up half the store. Stock
changes daily and prices are so low that there are actually purchase limits.
Designer purses line the outer aisles and are grabbed as soon as they are put on
the floor. It takes a certain type of bargain shopper (e.g. loves bargains but
want quality and is willing to hunt for it) to enjoy Last Chance. This is not a
place to go if you are in a hurry or are accompanied by anyone who doesnít
enjoy the thrill of the hunt, because the check-out lines are usually long. The
ladies often have a little fashion show poolside to show off their finds at the
end of the shopping day.
