Colorado Shopping: 14 reviews and 11 photos
This is the second mall in Colorado Springs. Although when you go in, it may not seem like much. However, it has many different shops to offer, including a Discovery Channel Store that Chapel Hills Mall does not have. Also, check out the food court when you are there. Palm trees and much greenery!
Address: Academy Blvd. Just before Platte
Directions: Take Academy Blvd. South. Just before you reach Platte Street, you will see the mall to your right.
You can't go wrong here. You name it, you will probably find it. TONS of clothing stores; everything from Dress Barn for women to Timberland for guys. There is also a Levi's Jean outlet, and many others.
What to buy: I recommend Timberland, because they have a lot of hiking cold weather gear.
What to pay: You can actually save quite a bit...the best times to go are seasonal changes. Buy all your winter stuff in the spring when it is 60-80% off, and vise-versa.
Directions: Easy. Travelling on I-25 South, it will be on your right. Take the exit past it. Travelling on I-25 North, it will be on your left. Take the Happy Canyon Road Exit, make a U-turn, then go back.
This is a combination store of practically everything you can possibly think of. Primarily, it is an antique store, but there is also furniture, books, collectibles, and anything else you may be seeking. I found a few things here to finish a couple of my collections. Prices vary, so check around within the store, because there may be more than one.
Directions: At the intersection of Academy and Constitution.
This is a coin collector's shop. The owner has a few antiques, but a lot of the stuff I saw was nothing but junk. He has old indian arrowheads for sale, gold nuggets, and a few bowie knifes. However, the owner is very nice, and seems to be very respectable.
I needed to obtain some coins for my collection, and he was willing to trade me instead of having me fork out much money. I managed to almost finish my collection because of him. I also bought a few 2005 Silver Eagles from him, at a good price too!
He has coins from practically everywhere in the world, and has so many contacts, he can put you up with someone who has something you are looking for in case he doesn't have it. If you are a coin collector passing through, stop in and see what he has to offer.
What to buy: Coins mostly...some paper money as well.
Address: 123 S. 5th Canon City, CO 81212
Directions: Drive through the main road. You will see the shop on the right hand corner going west. There is a big parking lot next to the store and the Chamber of Commerce. If you pass the Chamber of Commerce, you've gone too far.
Everything from camping, hiking, fishing, exercise equipment, etc. It's all here! Used to be called Galyans...now called Dick's Sporting Goods.
What to buy: Tents, Yoga Mats, baseball gloves, ski goggles, (you get the picture...basically everything).
What to pay: Dick's has very good quality stuff, but expect to pay a little higher than average prices than you normally would.
Address: Powers Blvd.
Directions: Take Academy Drive south to Dublin. Take a left on Dublin, pass the Oak Shop and the car care garage. Follow Dublin until you reach Powers Blvd. Take a right onto Powers, follow a few miles. Dick's is in the shopping center to your left.
Theme: Sporting Goods
This shop is just like Galyans, but not as expensive; especially if you go through the REI outlet. If you go online to the REI outlet link below, you can order what you want or need at the outlet price, and then turn around and pick it up at the REI store! Just remember....if you go through the REI outlet, it is cheaper than going through the actual store.
What to buy: Camping, rockclimbing, and other outdoors equipment.
What to pay: Expect to pay average, unless you go online to the REI Outlet. (Be sure you click on the REI Outlet tab).
Address: Woodmen Road behind Home Depot
Everything from Borders to JC Penney. This is the best mall to go to if you are a mall going type of person. There is also a second mall, called Citadel Mall, but I haven't been there yet to check it out. Chapel Hills Mall even has an indoor ice skating rink.
What to buy: Everything you could possibly think of.
Address: Academy Blvd
Directions: Take I-25 to Academy Blvd / CO 83 South. Go through 2 stoplights. Mall is 1/2 mile on your left.
This is an area of Colorado Springs called "Old Colorado City." It was a thriving city in the 1800's; today it is full of shops and restaurants. Everything from custom made rustic wood furniture to military surplus, this place has it all.
What to buy: Anything you want.
What to pay: Prices depend on the store you are in.
Address: Colorado Springs
Directions: Take US HWY 24 West toward Manitou Springs. Take a right at the large sign that says "Old Colorado City." At the next stoplight, take a left. You will drive right into it.
