Things still look a little 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 (and restaurants!) around the metro. Want to join us? Here are some of the city's notable locations, mapped out by neighborhoods.
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.
The Heights & Hillcrest
Looking for the perfect gift or outfit for your next event? You’re in luck. From clothing and accessories to home décor and gifts, expect to find everything you need (and want).
Riverdale & Stifft Station
Two unique neighborhoods, one guarantee you won't find anything else like it in town. Whether you hit the city's design district or take a load off at Pizza D's, we call that a win.
West Little Rock
If shopping is your sport of choice, you’ll find lots to explore in west Little Rock. From cutting edge fashion to custom-made cosmetics, many stores are located in bustling shopping centers that are also home to great restaurants, where you can grab dinner or a cocktail after hitting your favorite stores.
We've always known being intentional with our spending is a meaningful tool, and 2020 was was a powerful reminder of why it matters. If you want to focus your dollars in Little Rock's Black community, we've got a list for that, too.
The holiday season is no joke for local businesses, but that doesn't mean they can't have a little fun along the way. Some are making a full day of it with food, entertainment and more. Here are a few of the highlights.

- Rock It! Lab
- Paper Hearts Bookstore
- Bella Vita
- The Galleries & Bookstore at Library Square

Happy shopping, friends!
