Wroclaw - Shopping
Shopping is serious business in Wrocław, and there are many specialist shops as well as major shopping department stores that sell everything: the latest designer fashions from Milan, Paris and New York, jewellery, cosmetics, children’s wear and home furnishings.
The Galeria Centrum is probably the best-known of the shopping complexes, with chains throughout Poland. In Wrocław it accounts for much of local spending, especially in cosmetics and fashion, and it has its own respected fashion brand. Other shopping centres include the Galeria Dominikańska (pl. Dominikański 1), the Renoma shopping centre (ul. Świdnicka 40), the Korona shopping centre (ul. B. Krzywoustego 126), the Borek Shopping Centre (ul. Hallera 52) and the Bielany Shopping Centre (ul. Czekoladowa 5-11).
Visitors and residents of Wrocław alike are health conscious and like to shop for fresh vegetables, fruit and meat in the covered markets, such as the one at Hala Targowa, although most residents shop in the huge food hyper-market complexes that are a regular sight on the Wrocław landscape.
