Houston leads the nation in retail job growth for the fourth consecutive year, reports the Bureau of Labor Statistics. We're not surprised. No matter whether you're looking for a pair of bedazzled flip-flops or a Chanel boucle jacket, you can find it. We've explored the city's shops, from the Galleria to the Heights. Here are some of our favorites.
The Galleria, Uptown Park and Post Oak
With nearly 400 stores and its signature ice rink, the Galleria is the largest mall in Texas and the fourth largest in the country, with more than 24 million visitors each year.
Vintage, retro and arty modern fare and small-town atmosphere draw visitors into the eclectic shops of 19th Street.
Bellaire and Meyerland
Remember Meyerland Plaza? Perhaps it is time to make new shopping memories at the Loop 610 mall, and visit Bellaire stores for something chic.
A grand mix of shopping and dining choices with everything from designer shoes to cupcakes turns a drive along Westheimer into a stop-and-go trip.
Yes, Tootsies is here, but shoppers also can find More Than You Can Imagine.
Put on your walking shoes to spend the day lost in a multiblock village filled with designer goods and funky fun.
