Several nearby shopping centers, including the St. Louis Outlet Mall (known by the locals as the Mills Outlet Mall), the Buzz Westfall Center, and the Shoppes at Cross Keys, open the door to a variety of shopping options. Each center features everything from shoe stores to video game retailers, but "The Mills" stays ahead of the pack with an indoor skateboard park and hockey rink.
The neighborhood supports chain stores such as Aeropostale, Nike, and Bed, Bath & Beyond as well as a few specialty stores, such as the Putting Edge, which caters to the golfing crowd, and a movie theatre.
Additional shopping facilities include auto parts stores and local grocery chains such as Save-A-Lot and Schnucks. Some neighboring suburbs host summer farmers' markets, but a ride down to St. Louis' historic Soulard
Farmers Market makes a special year-round treat. Quick marts and thrifty dollar shops are plentiful and just right for that unexpected "last-minute" errand. No matter what your shopping needs and preferences, you can find the right store in Spanish Lake.
