Alpharetta Shopping Guide: Explore Georgia’s Retail Destination

This post may contain affiliate links*

Comedian Jon Stewart once said, “I’ve always liked Atlanta. And not just for the strip clubs, but the shopping and the food.” I’m wondering what Stewart has to say about Atlanta’s neighbor, Alpharetta — a true shopping destination, without the urban hustle and bustle.

Located about 25 miles north of A-town, Alpharetta, Ga., is small city that boasts five shopping districts within a five-mile radius — plus the hotels, restaurants and spas you’d expect from a destination community. The Alpharetta shopping scene has a little something for everyone, from upscale retailers to independent boutiques, walking areas to shopping malls. Inspired to plan a shopping trip? Awesome. Then read on to learn how to shop Alpharetta.

Alpharetta Shopping Districts


Avalon is a modern “live-work-play” development in the center of Alpharetta. You’ll find more than 500,000 square feet of retail in Avalon! Stores include Anthropologie, Athleta, Banana Republic and Free People.

Downtown Alpharetta

If you’re craving a day of strolling through independent shops and browsing goods you can’t find anywhere else, put Downtown Alpharetta on the agenda.

North Point Mall

North Point Mall delivers the traditional mall-shopping experience, with Macy’s and Dillard’s at the corners. In between, you can shop the only American Girl store in Georgia, plus the locally famous boutique Honey & Hazel.

North on Main

When you’re feeling splurgy and high-brow, North on Main has you covered. Stop into Designer Consigner, which offers high-end labels such as Chanel, Marc Jacobs and Louis Vuitton at bargain prices!

Windward Parkway

Spas and international restaurants may distract you from the boutiques along Windward Parkway — but then you’ll deserve some food and pampering after a long day of shopping!
