It’s the most wonderful time of the year, which means it’s also gift-buying time! Santa knows there’s no better place to Christmas shop than Kingsport, which has a wide variety of wonderful shops and stores for everyone to explore!
When it comes to unique shopping opportunities, there are several locally owned businesses that have plenty of great items that would look perfect under the Christmas tree! Just a few of our favorites are:
- Perfectly Unhinged – a boutique-concept store that gives local crafters and artists a great location in which to sell their goods. The numerous vendors boast a huge assortment of goodies. Santa’s elves love this shop because it has plenty of options for men, women, children, and fur-babies including graphic tees, hand-painted door hangers, leather goods, jewelry…the list goes on and on.
- Boomtown – A local focus and the love of Tennessee helped create this incredible store, whose goal is to create quality clothing with a mountain urban style. Their t-shirts are incredibly soft and comfortable, as are the hoodies and other clothing items. Boomtown also has a variety of cool socks, leather goods, men’s soaps and beard grooming items, and tons of other great finds!
- Turquoise Boutique – As you walk through the brightly colored turquoise door, you will find an upscale women’s boutique, including apparel, jewelry, purses, and other accessories. The elegant, yet comfortable ambiance of this business paired with its selection of merchandise makes it extremely popular not only for residents but with out-of-towners too.
- Reedy Creek Bicycles – Say hello to the new kid in Downtown Kingsport…but definitely not new to the bicycle business. Offering a wide variety of bikes and accessories alongside professional advice, you can’t go wrong with a selection from this establishment, especially if your loved one likes to “get into the outdoors”.
You can find a variety of other shops downtown too, such as Blakey-Mitchell, one of the finest men’s stores in the region, Abingdon Olive Oil Company, Bear N Friends, Caroline’s, and many more. And, if you’re searching for the perfect timeless piece to put beneath the Christmas tree, you’ll enjoy exploring our many antique stores that are filled with collectibles and other wonderful treasures.
There’s an abundance of other great shopping options too in Kingsport. Fort Henry Mall features Belk, J.C. Penney, Victoria’s Secret, Bath and Body, and many other stores, while you’ll find Hobby Lobby and T.J. Maxx, just to name a couple, at East Stone Commons. And if you still haven’t filled those stockings, no worries, because you can find some great gifts at the Kingsport Pavilion, where you can shop for goodies at Target, Kohl’s, Ulta, Dick’s Sporting Goods, and other great shops.
