Destination Spotlight: West End Center
Summer is here and if that isn’t the perfect excuse to vamp up your warm-weather wardrobe, then what is? Lucky for us, the West End Center has the exact items we need (because, yes, new clothes are always a need) without breaking the bank. Whether you are looking for the perfect pair of strappy sandals or a beautiful sundress, West End is the home to all of your shopping dreams. Grab your purse, sweetheart! We are going shopping!
Thanks to a wide selection of factory stores, high-quality clothing is affordable. As you walk through the center, that one item you have been eyeballing can be yours thanks to the screaming deals found within the factory stores for Gap, Banana Republic, J. Crew, Nike and Converse. Purchases made for classy summer work attire or athletic shoes for spending time soaking up the sun are now guilt-free! No matter the occasion, these stores will have you dressed to work hard in the office or at the gym.
Next, you will need to accessorize the beautiful pieces you just bought. Charming Charlie is every woman’s bling dream. When you walk through the doors, a perfectly organized rainbow of color-coded jewelry greets you. It's not only easy on the eyes, but your wallet will be thanking you! There is no need to worry about not finding exactly what you want to perfectly compliment your new outfit, because you will leave jewelry heaven with just the right necklace, watch and ring! After all, you see it, you like it, you want it, you got it!
Next, treat yourself to a little self love at Onyx Nail Bar. If a full set of acrylic nails, clean waxed eyebrows or fresh lashes are your thing, Onyx will leave you feeling like Miss America. Kick up your feet for a relaxing hour designated to pampering yours truly.
All of this shopping has got to have worked up an appetite. West End offers a delicious selection of restaurants that vary from soups and salads, to good old-fashioned Texas BBQ. Here are some options:
- Walk-On’s - The Boom Boom Shrimp is calling your name.
- Bone Daddy’s - My mouth is watering just thinking about the smokehouse BBQ.
- Crave Dessert Bar - Finish the day off with a cherry on top! (Or a macaroon)
- Not to mention - Chipotle Mexican Grill, Panera Bread, Aspen Creek Grill, Chick-fil-A and more
Don’t think we forgot the true gem of West End - Costco! This is not only the mother of all grocery and wholesale stores, it's where you go to mindlessly fill your carts with things you just realized you need. Where else can you get a bulk pack of oversized muffins AND bottomless laundry detergent? That’s right, nowhere.
By now you’ve probably shopped 'til you’ve dropped! But if you happen to have some stamina left, check out a few of these honorable mentions:
- Bed Bath and Beyond
- Best Buy
- Vera Bradley
- Northern Tool and Equipment
