This record shop is a solidly independent store that recently expanded into two buildings. The value of over 20,000 pieces of vinyl is enhanced by the collection of new and used turntables for sale, alongside dozens of lava lamps. The motley selection of music at Twist & Shout is too much for even one room. Dealing in over 100,000 new and used CDs, it offers a skilled staff to help customers find obscure treasures. Used CDs are updated daily and generally sold at a reasonable price.
This specialty shop features remarkable wines from remarkable regions around the world. Gift baskets and accessories such as unusual corkscrews and carafes are sold in abundance. Great gifts for friends and family include registry in the wine-of-the-month club or a personal wine-shopping service. Wine tastings are hosted regularly, and the skilled staff welcome the opportunities that turn beginners into full-blown connoisseurs through seminars and in-store assistance. The prices are also pleasant, especially when considering the excellent service and selection.
Strange as it may seem, the factory outlet shopping plaza in Castle Rock is one of Denver's most popular attractions. Maybe it is the scenic 30-minute drive to the quaint town of Castle Rock that draws shoppers to the 135 bargain stores. Its outdoor, lodge-like design blends nicely with the surroundings. Wander around such popular stores as Eddie Bauer, Nike and GAP. Smaller shops include Villa Fresh Italian Kitchen and Bass. A food court resides at the center of the complex.
Officially billed as the 'Park Meadows Retail Resort,' this mall's name reflects its attempt to replicate an alpine resort environment. The mall security officers resemble park rangers. Rock formations rise in rest areas, and the pine interior reminds shoppers more of a ski lodge than a suburban shopping mall. Nordstrom and Dillard's anchor the mall's other gift stores and boutiques. It is easily accessible and the perfect place to shop, dine and entertain.
Owners Lawrence and Cathy Covell personally select their exclusive designer clothing from runways in New York and Milan.

Featured designers include Claude Montana, Yeohlee and Vestimente. If you are attempting to make an eyebrow raising fashion statement for a special occasion this is the clothing store to visit. Call for opening hours, or an appointment.
The faint scent of old paper comforts readers coming to The Hermitage Bookshop from far and wide. Lining the shelves are titles from a forgotten time lovingly preserved by the keepers of this book house. Nestled into the leather chairs or propped on a stool, readers are yet again taken on journeys through time and tradition at one of the oldest bookstores in the city. The store also seeks to keep alive the art of reading with read aloud sessions for students and children.
This factory outlet mall is so large it could apply for statehood. Just 30 minutes north of Colorado Springs, right off of Interstate 25, it is a true tourist attraction, which can be attested by its bus parking spaces. Over 100 shops cluster in the mall's village-like architecture and include everything from toy stores to women's wear. Levis, Ann Taylor, the Gap, Reebok, Calvin Klein and Eddie Bauer are some of the big name shops. A large food court and numerous rest rooms add to the shopping convenience.
You can expect to find a never-ending stock of clothes here. No matter what you are looking for, it is there in the aisles at Nordstrom - be it socks, belts and other formal wear for guys; or handbags, lingerie and sweaters for women. You can also place your orders online. Another great feature about the company is that, if you can't find the product you want in a certain store, they will source it from other locations and ship it to you!
