Holiday shopping in Spokane, Washington

In 1956, the first shopping mall in America opened in Edina, Minnesota, thrilling shoppers with a climate-controlled venue featuring shops arrayed around an open space, reminiscent of European village greens. To this day, a trip to the local mall is still a great way to shop, and perhaps the best way to connect with national retailers, all while staying out of inclement weather. And around the Spokane region, you can find some of the top national retailers only at malls and their surrounding areas.

At Spokane Valley Mall, young fashionistas can choose among several trend-setting stores. H&M, a Swedish giant, offers layering basics as well as international styles at appealing price points. Rounding out the on-trend shopping experience are HOLLISTER, AMERICAN EAGLE and AEROPOSTALE. The bustling MACY’S is the only one in the region, and features the New York-based retailer’s clothing, housewares and furniture. Also at the Valley location is the region’s only NORDSTROM RACK, a destination for savvy shoppers looking for deals on men’s and women’s clothing and shoes, as well as accessories and housewares.
