Shopping in Rhode Island
The shopping experience in Rhode Island is
similar to the experience you would expect
in any of the areas in the northeast states.
Shopping in the Northeast is different than
the shopping anywhere else in America
because of the difference in the New England
Culture. Providence Place is the favorite location of
most residents and visitors to Rhode Island.
This is the largest shopping mall anywhere
in the area. It has over 170 of the top
chain stores in the U.S. as well as 12 of
the most delicious eating establishments in
the state. This shopping, dining and
entertainment destination is the highlight
of any shopping excursion you wish go on
while visiting Rhode Island.
Most of the top high end
stores located in New York can be found
right here. A few of the more popular stores
are: Nordstrom, Tiffany & Co., Coach, The
Apple Store, The Cheesecake Factory,
Sephora, J. Jill, Sony Style, Ross-Simons,
Build-A-Bear Workshop, and Dave & Buster’s.
No mall would be complete without a movie
theater, this allows for an entertaining
break during your shopping extravaganza. The
Feinstein IMAX Theatre, which is located
inside of Providence Place, has 11 screens
for your viewing pleasure. Check local
listings while you are there so you can plan
your shopping trip to coincide with your
The stunning architecture of this mall will
keep you coming back for more as you spend
your day enjoying shopping and entertainment
in this quaint little area of Rhode Island.
Warwick Mall is the other notable
shopping area in Rhode Island. There are
around 100 different stores inside of the
mall including eating establishments. This
is more of the kind of mall you would expect
to see in this laid back New England state.
|Most of your typical mall stores
can be found here, like Gap, Abercrombie and Fitch, Foot
Locker, Victoria’s Secret, etc, etc.
Warwick Mall is you’re typical down home
mall experience without all the extra fluff
of some of the big city malls.
Most of the restaurants you will find here
are just going to be fast food chains with
the normal burger and fries menu. So if
you’re looking for somewhere elegant to dine
with the family, its better you look around
the surrounding areas because you’re not
going to find it here.
There are a million different small shops
located around the state, so try not to
limit yourself to just the big malls. The
malls are going to contain the same things
that you can buy at your own hometown mall.
What really sets the Rhode Island shopping
experience apart from the rest is the small
shops located down around the waterfront.
Here you will find some of the most unique
things that you ever thought existed. A nice
little souvenir to bring back from the Ocean
State can definitely be found here.
