In a city unknown for boutique shops, Laurelwood Shopping Center has an amazing collection of small stores featuring designer clothing for both men and women. Make your way through James Davis, Joseph's, Colony Shop and Talbot's, browsing through the top-notch selection of quality dresses, suits and accessories. Other shops worth visiting are King Furs and Fine Jewelry, the David Lusk Gallery and Cotton Tails for children's clothing. Stop along the way and pick up some locally-made chocolates at Dinstuhl's. Don't miss Davis-Kidd Booksellers, a large independent shop.
Carrefour may look like just another upscale suburban strip mall, but it is worth exploring. Anchored at one end by a Border's bookstore with arguably the best bookstore café in Memphis (live music on weekends and a showcase for local artists on one wall), the mall also has a couple of dress shops: Casual Corner and Paul Harris. The surprises are in a store called Happy Names that will engrave or paint anything you buy with your name or someone's else's, and has an interesting array of food items, including dips and candies. In the corner of the parking lot is a Macaroni Grill restaurant.
This huge mall has had quite an impact on the shopping habits of Memphis residents. The four anchor stores are J.C. Penney's, Goldsmith's, Sears, and Dillard's. Other stores feature specialty items such as luggage and leather goods, bath and body products, eye wear and unique children's clothing. The Malco Theatres complex on the second floor has nine movie theaters, all with stadium seating for better viewing.
