Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.
It's no secret that we're pretty proud of our world-class shopping here in the Big Apple. People vacation here for the shopping. While it can seem like the be-all-end-all of stateside brick and mortar, we'd like to shed a little light on some other cities. After all, what are you supposed to do on a weekend out of town—not shop?
Racked Boston has generously provided a list of ten stores that will give us a run for our money, in more than one sense. Pop into Louis for luxury exclusives, sneak behind a secret Snapple door at Bodega to find a world of streetwear, and finish your weekend with a Sunday browse of the SoWa Vintage Market. We're certain you'll head home with something you couldn't find in New York. All ten stores are in handy map form after the jump.
