There’s something very compelling about the act of shopping, if the thousands of malls that dot the U.S.A. are any indication. In fact, it has been proven scientifically that dopamine is released in response to shopping and paying for new things, making it just as addictive as anything else that releases dopamine. Some people are genuinely shopaholics!
Unlike other vices, though, pretty much every healthy person will shop at some time during their life. It’s hardly an issue as long as you mind your finances. If you find yourself in Oklahoma with an itch to scratch and money burning a hole in your pocket, there are a few quality shopping centers you should check out during your time there. Even if you’re a native Oklahoman, these shopping centers are unique in their stores and philosophies.
Let us break it down for you:
50 Penn Place
Billed as the most notable address in Oklahoma City, this distinctive mall is a sprawling, high-class affair. Boutique shops, art galleries, and food you can’t find anywhere else is the main draw, as opposed to more traditional mall shops like big-box stores. This three-story mall is perfect for an entire family to stroll around and take in what’s on offer.
This mall in Tulsa, first opened in 1984 and has recently undergone new renovations, is noticeable in their proclivity for fitting in service-based businesses as opposed to many retail stores. There is, of course, the standard food court, but it’s more to service the needs of those who work there than it is for visitors. It’s also good if you’re looking for products that can’t be held in your hand, but are absolutely needed like financial help and governmental services. It’s noted for the pleasant experience associated with walking through the premises.
Those looking for an “average” style mall that accomplishes this task exceptionally well are going to love the Northpark mall. It isn’t the most glamorous of all malls in the area, but it’s worth saying that one of the state’s best bargain movie theaters can be found within. People who want to see names and brands that they recognize at the right price should take a trip down to Northpark for their shopping sprees.
Outlet Shoppes at Oklahoma City
Outlet shops are a fantastic way to find some great finds from famous brands that are extremely difficult to track down in more generalized stores. In Oklahoma City, the Outlet Shoppes center puts as many outlet stores as possible side-by-side, something that brings in visitors from out-of-state. It’s safe to say it’s a pretty big draw. Over 80 names of brand retailers are inside, ready to sell their finest products directly from the factory.
The entire state of Oklahoma is awash with excellent shopping options, but these four are definitely the most noteworthy. Between these four centers, there’s hardly a service you won’t be able to find. Besides some of the more centrally located locations like 50 Penn, parking issues are non-existent, which further adds to Oklahoma’s status as a shopping mecca. If you’re a resident or just passing through, know you’re well-cared for in the Sooner State.
