Portland shopping

Portland residents take to heart the motto "shop local" and strive to support independent businesses whenever they can. The result is a thriving shopping scene comprising many highly original boutiques. Less about glamour than cutting-edge design, Portland shops are often full of surprises and unusual specialties (see the award-winning supply store, Office, for an example). New shops are opening all the time in the chic Pearl District, while downtown offers all the major players you'd expect—from Saks Fifth Avenue to Nordstrom. Youthful and hip, N.E. Alberta is home to the edgier, more avant-garde shops, while N.W. 23rd Avenue caters to a more upscale, establishment crowd.
