    Lloyd Center

    The largest mall in the state houses more than 150 stores, a 10-screen movie theater and an indoor ice rink. Located near the Oregon Convention Center, Lloyd Center is easily accessed from downtown via MAX light rail.

    811 building

    If you’re “so over” the traditional mall format, 811 E. Burnside St. in the Central Eastside is just what the doctor ordered. This indie mall of sorts is home to several local apparel shops and accessory designers like Haunt, plus a good selection of vintage threads.

    Outlet stores

    Just 30 minutes south of Portland directly off of Interstate 5, Woodburn Premium Outlets is the largest tax-free outlet in the West. Pull in for sought-after style from more than 100 stores like Columbia Sportswear, adidas and Banana Republic, often at deep discounts.

    The Columbia Gorge Premium Outlets, 25 minutes east of Portland, features Adidas, Gap, Levi’s, Coach and 40 more big brands.

    In Portland, there’s a Columbia Sportswear outlet store in Sellwood, and you’ll find a full range of clothing and shoes at the Nike Factory Store.
