You’ll find the best of both worlds when it comes to shopping. Department stores and retail chains that you know and love are located at malls throughout the area, including the Northwest Arkansas Mall in Fayetteville, and the Pinnacle Promenade in Rogers. From Dillard’s to JC Penney and Abercrombie & Fitch to Gap Kids, you can find the brands you’re looking for.
Boutiques filled with clothing, jewelry, household decor, and unique art and fashion pieces are fun to visit for items you won’t find everywhere. These unique shops offer distinguished tastes and one-of-a-kind service to help you add to your individual style. The downtown areas of Northwest Arkansas cities are great places to find these shops. Eureka Springs stands out with its offerings. Its entire downtown is on the National Register of Historic Places and is lined with Victorian buildings full of everything from upscale fashion, jewelry, and art to collectibles and antiques.
Original gifts are fun to search for at venues only found in Northwest Arkansas. Buy a knife from A.G. Russell Knives in Lowell, or a Bluebird of Happiness or piece of pottery from Terra Studios just outside of Fayetteville. Here you can also watch a demonstration of blown glass and other artistic methods. If cooking is your passion, don’t miss the whole-grain organic flours, cornmeals, mixes, cereals, and cookbooks at War Eagle Mill near Rogers. You can also enjoy a wine tasting at Keel’s Creek Winery in Eureka Springs then select a bottle of your favorite vino.
