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. Antiques, fine art, toys, books, menswear, beauty, gourmet kitchen finds, outdoor gear, 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.
