If you believe there’s more to shopping than mega malls and big box stores, then South End may well be your retail nirvana.

That same creative spirit that percolates through the offices and residences here also bubbles up in the salons, shops, restaurants and cafes. Stroll and window-shop or stop in and spend big. With over 100 stores the likes of which you won’t find anywhere else, South End has become the favorite hunting ground for those on the prowl for truly unique clothes, art, gifts, housewares, eats and more.

In fact, for many, South End’s eclectic, eccentric retail scene is reason enough to spend time here, time and time again.
