Shopping, the Plaza is Just the Beginning

Convenience, accessibility, and selection are the hallmarks of shopping throughout Kansas City, whether you hit a suburban mall or stroll through a cozy, long-established retail neighborhood. Park your car and head inside or exercise your legs across multiple urban blocks. You'll find the latest fashions from nationally known name brands, to funky style at one-of-a-kind boutiques.

Shopping with the kids? They'll love choosing new art supplies or helping you create a handcrafted Teddy bear. You can buy natural cosmetics or a wide variety of accessories to top-of-the-line athletic wear and the latest in tech equipment. Then grab a snack at a food court or a locally owned restaurant. Enjoy old-school ambiance in the Brookside Shopping District, a weekend festival atmosphere amid City Market vendor booths and shops, and recently renovated surroundings inside Oak Park Mall or Independence Center. And there's no better place to shop 'til you drop, while catching a beautiful glimpse of Kansas City history, than at the Country Club Plaza.

Here’s a list of the best shopping so you can begin planning your shopping spree!
