Everything looks different this year, but one thing looks familiar: supporting the businesses that make Little Rock what it is. We’re ditching the megastores and spending our dollars at local shops around the metro. Want to join us? Here’s where to go, mapped out by neighborhoods. Grab your mask and don't forget about curbside pickup, too!


Downtown & Argenta

Complete with some of the city's best views, there's plenty to peruse and purchase near the river. Museum and specialty shops are interspersed with longtime local retailers, while the revitalization of SoMa and ongoing efforts in the River Market have also brought new boutiques and shops brimming with locally made goods.

Browse Downtown, SoMa and Argenta shops here.
