A shopper’s experience can begin long before entering a shop and end well after they leave. The reach of your shop should extend beyond your storefront.
Shops have the power to create a sense of community and bring people together at a time when social bonds are unraveling. It’s the personal touch that often makes a difference at the end of the day. For this reason, in 2013 we created the first curated guide to the best local shopping around the world. By bringing exquisite and inspiring shops together in one portfolio innovative and likeminded retailers meet style-conscious global shoppers.
The most memorable shopping experiences take place on the street, tucked down an alleyway or up an escalator; within antique stores in small country towns, or in fashion boutiques on the high street filled with the latest styles. Our readers crave these types of experiences around the world, as well as within their own country. They crave products, authenticity, quality, and service, which will linger in their memory for years to come.
