You might begin your shopping expedition at Hauptplatz, the main square in the center of town. The major shopping streets, including the wide, elegant Herrengasse, branch off from here. The second major shopping street is the also elegant and car-free Sporgasse, which is lined with upscale shops and sidewalk cafes. In the heart of the old city, Sporgasse runs along the River Mur's Left Bank. The major item to buy here is Styrian clothing in its famous gray-and-green hues. Stores offer a good selection of dirndls and hats in particular, as well as local handicrafts and leather clothing. Stores are generally open Monday to Friday 9am to 6pm and on Saturday 9am to noon.
