Nicollet Mall, a pedestrian avenue in downtown Minneapolis, is home to Neiman Marcus, Macy's, and two malls, upscale Gaviidae Common and City Center. Funky galleries and boutique stores abound in Uptown, near Hennepin and Lake streets. And 50th and France offers distinctive shops in a traditional village shopping square. In St. Paul, don't miss Grand Avenue, just west of the downtown. The boutique shops along here are housed in former residences, and 95% remain independently owned.
