Mr. Wicks is a stylish men's boutique hotspot in the Heights neighborhood that's been keeping men stylish since 1960

Hot shopping spots are varied and plentiful in the Greater Little Rock area. Big-name stores and hip new retail destinations populate the expanding west side, while Midtown offers two malls — one indoor, one outdoor — right across the street from each other. When it comes to antiques, fine art, toys, books, menswear, beauty, gourmet kitchen finds, outdoor gear and jewelry, the city’s locally owned retailers run the gamut. Folks here love to shop small, but if the mood strikes, the big box retailers are here, too.

Don’t miss downtown’s numerous museum stores, shops and plethora of eclectic boutiques nestled in The Heights and Hillcrest, two of the city’s oldest neighborhoods. There’s also plenty to peruse in North Little Rock’s historic Argenta Arts District, and its McCain Mall and surrounding shopping strip centers tempt visitors to spend the day looking for just the right souvenirs.
