Magazine Ranks Austin a Top Shopping City
Austin is among the 25 best cities for shopping, according to Lucky magazine.
Ranked No. 12, Austin came in ahead of Dallas and Houston at No. 16 and No. 15, respectively.
Lucky magazine editors cited convenience as one factor contributing to Austin's ranking.
“With most of the shopping centered around either downtown or South Congress Avenue, it’s easy to walk around and shop and grab a cupcake or taco from one of the food stands on the way,” the editors wrote.
The article specifically mentions Austin boutiques Feathers and Kickpleat, as well as jewelry store Eliza Page.
To compile the list, the shopping magazine admits that it is mostly subjective, but it did use some variables such as retail vacancy rates, the amount of chatter about shopping on social networking sites and the number of clothing and department stores.
