Ohio – Shopping

When it comes to shopping, you need all the variety you can get and scattered throughout Ohio are several great shopping destinations that provide you with just that. The following are what we consider the best spots to shop until you drop in Ohio.

Columbus is rising as a fashion mecca and has become fashion’s best-kept secret. As headquarters to retail giants like L Brands, Express, DSW and Abercrombie & Fitch, Columbus also has the third highest concentration of fashion designers behind only New York and Los Angeles.

Many of Columbus’ neighbourhoods offer chic boutiques from independent fashion retailers and designers. The Short North Arts District is full of one-of-a-kind shops for men and women alike. Homage sells screened vintage sports and civic logos from around the nation and carries only the best and softest t-shirts. The Candle Lab, in Worthington and the Short North Arts District, has hand-poured candles in more than 120 fragrances, pour-your-own custom scented candles, customisable home fragrance products and small-batch natural bath and body products.

Easton has stores like Tiffany & Co., Nordstrom and Louis Vuitton and is just 15 minutes east of downtown. This indoor/outdoor shopping centre with its unique village setting and broad assortment of restaurants, entertainment and retailers is a fashion guru’s dream.

Cleveland’s newest hot spot, the Detroit Shoreway neighbourhood, beckons those who crave art and culture. Nowhere else in town can you hit a hot dog joint with 50 topping options for lunch, spend the afternoon antiquing and perusing art galleries, enjoy fine dining before catching a live theatre performance, and wrap up the experience with drinks and live music into the wee hours of the morning.

Cincinnati is also a shopper’s paradise. From downtown signature shopping opportunities, like Tiffany’s & Co, Macy’s, and Saks Fifth Avenue, to high quality shopping destinations throughout the region, like IKEA, Newport on the Levee, Rookwood Commons, Kenwood Towne Center, Cincinnati abounds with great shopping experiences.
