Santiago Shopping

Vitacura is, without a doubt, the destination for upscale shopping. Lined with designer boutiques with SUVs double-parked out front, Avenida Alonso de Córdova is Santiago's equivalent of 5th Avenue in New York or Rodeo Drive in Los Angeles. "Drive" is the important word here, as nobody strolls from place to place. Although buzzing with activity, the streets are strangely empty. Here you'll see

names like Emporio Armani, Louis Vuitton, and Hermès. Other shops are found on nearby Avenidas Vitacura and Nueva Costanera.

Providencia, another of the city's most popular shopping districts, has rows of smaller, less luxurious boutiques. Avenida Providencia slices through the neighborhood, branching off for several blocks into the parallel Nueva Providencia. The shops continue east to Tobalaba, after which Avenida Providencia changes its name to Avenida Apoquindo and the neighborhood becomes Las Condes. Or to be on the cutting edge, head south to Avenida Italia (close to Salvador), where there are several blocks of shops stretching south from Bilbao. Converted row houses and workshops have been given over to (mostly) home design stores, cafés, and restaurants with courtyards in back. The street Girardi also has several antiques dealers.

Bohemian Bellavista attracts those in search of the perfect thick woolen sweater or the right piece of lapis lazuli jewelry. Santiago Centro is much more down to earth while the Mercado Central just to the north of Parque Forestal is where anything ocean-related is sold, and nearby markets like Vega Chica and Vega Central sell cheese, fruit, meat, eggs, vegetables, cleaning supplies, signs, and many other items. The shops are grouped together by type.

Shops in Santiago are generally open weekdays 10–7 and Saturday 10–2. Malls are usually open daily 10–10.
