There's no "wow" in suburban shopping, especially when it comes to department stores. Unless you consider Macy's or Dillards the best, there's no sense taking a shopping trip to the burbs.

Saks at Canal Place Downtown is pretty much it if you want designer. New Orleans just isn't a shopping destination unless you're looking for art, antiques, or cheap souvenirs.

I'm not saying there's no place to shop for everyday things in New Orleans, just no place special. When you say you want "wow" shopping, I think of the shopping experiences of cities like New York and Los Angeles that have rows of designer and unique clothing stores. New Orleans doesn't have THAT sort of experience. If you just want run of the mill department stores that have everyday shopping for almost any budget, there's Dillard's, Macy's, and J.C. Penney at Lakeside Mall in Metairie. I don't endorse one over the other because they all serve their own purposes, they're just nothing special.

Saks...Canal Street used to be a grand shopping street. Those were the good old days. Canal Street in NOLA and 3rd Street in BR.

3rd used to be a shopping street? I remember pictures in the 50s but it looked more like entertainment.

In the city itself, there aren't really any department stores besides Saks. Most shopping gets done at local boutiques on Magazine or in the French Quarter.

Isn't there an Anthropologie in New Orleans now? That store really wows me although I can never afford to buy anything, LOL.
