Whatever you’re envisioning, you’ll find plenty to love about the many boutiques and stores that create memorable shopping experiences throughout Central Oregon. From souvenir shops in downtown Bend to boutiques in the far reaches of the region, you’re never far from finding plenty to bring home. (Just be sure to bring an empty suitcase or leave room in your bag.) Best of all: There is no sales tax in Central Oregon—so what you see on the price tag, is what you pay at the register.
With so many options, it can be tough to know where to start. We’re happy to help—so we’ve put together this guide to shopping districts, boutiques, and other outlets around Central Oregon.
Shopping Around Bend
As the largest city in Central Oregon, it’s no surprise that Bend boasts the largest, most robust shopping scene. Most of the city’s best stores are concentrated around two scenic neighborhoods and one inventive shopping mall.
The first is downtown Bend, where historic brick buildings host some of the city’s most popular shops. If you’re looking for themed items to bring home, you’ll find no shortage of options at The Bend Store—which sells locally made foods, Bend-branded apparel, works from local artists, and more. Nearby, Clementine Urban Mercantile has attracted a devoted following for its curated selection of women’s clothing, handbags, handcrafted jewelry, and stylish accessories. And if you’re looking to gear up for your next outdoor adventure (this is Bend, after all), stop into Patagonia for jackets, pants, T-shirts, and other high-quality, durable apparel items—or the newly opened Stio, which produces outdoor gear inspired by the magical landscapes around Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
And just south of the Box Factory is the Old Mill District—a bustling collection of restaurants, art galleries, and more than 40 shops from local and national brands alike. You’ll find a mix of fashionable, chic apparel—alongside surf, snow, and cycling-inspired designs—at Vanilla Urban Threads (owned and operated by a former competitive mountain biker); flies, rods, tackle, and other angling accessories at Confluence Fly Shop (where a handful of local beers are even on tap); and even toys, games, handmade items, books, clothing, and more (all for children 12 and younger) at Wild Child.
While you’re in the Old Mill District, wrap up your day with a stop at one of the area’s tasting rooms—just a few of the many wineries in Central Oregon.
Shopping Around Sunriver
The heart of shopping in Sunriver is undeniably The Village at Sunriver. Since 1974, the open-air mall has hosted numerous locally owned, family-run shops alongside a dozen bustling eateries (including some of the top restaurants in Sunriver). And it’s all just a short walk or bike ride from the historic Sunriver Resort.
Today, some of The Village’s many boutiques include Sunriver Books & Music (an inviting bookstore that also carries an elegant array of pens), Tumbleweed Toys (packed with stuffed animals, train sets, puzzles, and other items for kids of all ages), Village Threads (which sells women’s clothing and accessories in a warm, welcoming environment), and the family-run Your Store (which sells a wide variety of Central Oregon- and Pacific Northwest-branded apparel—all for $24.99 or less).
Shopping Around Sisters and Redmond
One of the community’s most popular gift shops is The Hen’s Tooth, which sells souvenirs for everyone on your list—textiles, skin care, seasonal decor, candles, and more. A block away, Bedouin sells locally inspired gifts, home decor, local artwork, and apparel for men and women. And if you really want to get into the spirit of Sisters, shop for Western-inspired clothing for men and women, handbags, accessories, boots, and more at the always-popular Dixie’s. (After a day of shopping, unwind at some of the best restaurants in Sisters, Oregon.)
And in downtown Redmond, you’ll find a growing downtown core flanked by creative, locally owned shops that sell apparel, gifts, and even antiques. Maple Moon Home & Gift, for instance, sells a curated selection of home goods, gifts, local foods, and more. And if you want to take a trip back in time, head to Beyond the Ranch Antiques for West- and Pacific Northwest-inspired treasures—or the Redmond Antique Mall, home to more than 65 vendors. If you have some time after bouncing between shops, learn more about dining in Redmond, Oregon, as well as some of the best breweries and cideries in Redmond.
