Dallas shopping is a complex activity. It’s part entertainment, part social activity, and part blood sport (at least with the obsessed, hard core shoppers).

From high-end malls (like Galleria Dallas) to world-famous stores (like Neiman Marcus) to trendy shopping centers (like West Village) to budget conscious shopping (like Traders Village), shopping in Dallas Texas is a paradise for those with a passion for this “sport”.
