Shopping, it’s a pastime you’ll find in every destination; so, what makes Branson shopping an attraction all its own? Variety, quality, value, and just like with real estate, it’s all about those three words...location, location, location! But in Branson, every location, as well as every type of shopping, comes with its own special charms.
Historic Downtown - Branson’s first theater is still in operation downtown, and it’s surrounded by a variety of shops that include everything from a family owned shoe store - yes, independent retailers still exist in Branson - to an Aromatique shop, selling the Arkansas-born scented products. You’ll find an honest-to-goodness candy store, with a dizzying selection of homemade salt water taffy, to the Hollywood & More store that offers memorabilia from your favorite movies and pop culture moments.
Dick's 5 & 10 - The crown jewel of Downtown’s crown is Dick's 5 & 10. A visit to this jam-packed, but incredibly clean and organized, old style variety store sends you back to your childhood. Everything from the train displays above your head, to the green and white tiled floors beneath your feet - we’re talking 50’s era tile here, not stone or marble - makes you feel nostalgic, even if you weren’t yet born when Dick Hartley first opened the store that his son still operates today!
The Famous Strip - Sitting amongst the glitz and glamour of music theaters and eclectic dining establishments, you''ll find a nice selection of stores and shops. From boutiques that sell clothing with a Victorian touch, to Branson’s smaller Walmart store, shopping on Highway 76 is easy. There's a spacious grocery store, as well as a slew of souvenir shops, flea markets, and other stores.
Grand Village Shops - This English village-like collection of boutiques provides a nice variety of items found along a winding, cobblestone walkway. Both precious and costume jewelry, original paintings, a huge year-round Christmas store, and even an independent bookstore can be found in Branson’s Grand Village.
Branson Hills - The newest of Branson’s shopping districts, Branson Hills features your box-store favorites, like T.J. Maxx, Best Buy, Kohl’s, Target, Home Depot, Books-A-Million, WalMart, and Bed, Bath & Beyond. A variety of smaller stores are tucked among the big box retailers, including Maurice’s, Ulta Beauty, and Pier 1.
Branson Landing - Home to Branson’s lakefront center filled with dining and retail establishments, Branson Landing is entertainment-style shopping. Stretching along Lake Taneycomo’s shoreline, the Landing features a multi-million dollar light, fire, and music water fountain attraction with a stage and seating for live concert performances in warm weather months. A collection of smaller shops is anchored by Belk and Bass Pro.
Tanger Outlets - Serious shoppers flock to Branson for Tanger Outlets more than any other retail area in the city. It’s been a shopping attraction in Branson since 1961, and has continued to add ever more popular outlet stores over the years. It includes such popular names as Coach, Polo Ralph Lauren, Disney, Vera Bradley, Banana Republic, Crabtree & Evelyn, Under Armour, Tommy Hilfiger, and Yankee Candle. If you need a boost during your shopping extravaganza, you can grab a bite to eat at the A&W Restaurant or King’s Subs & Deli.
