Fodor's Expert Review Falabella
There's no love lost between Argentina and its neighbors, but when this Chilean department store opened, the affordable prices soon had locals swallowing their pride. The busy corner store's ground floor contains accessories, perfumes, and cosmetics such as MAC and Lancôme. Falabella also has three clothing lines: Sybila does low-cost (and low-quality) street wear; University Club is preppier and harder-wearing; Basement includes better-quality casual and work clothes. The overworked staff at both Falabella and its nearby home-wares branch, Falabella Hogar, don't give much guidance, but the prices make up for it. Avoid lunchtime, when it is packed with office workers looking for retail diversion.
