Nashville is known for being a culture rich city, mired in history and creativity. As such, it offers some of the most unique shopping experiences in Tennessee, and quite possibly in the Southern US. Read below for 3 unique shopping hotspots that'll give you and your friends or family an exquisite taste of Nashvillean culture at its budget-friendly best.
Hatch Show Print – Definitely one of the most culture-rich throwback stores in Nashville, the Hatch Show Print is actually one of the few old school printing operations still functioning – In fact, they've been in business for over 135 years! Their iconic posters and prints have defined the Nashville music scene for over a century, and while there's not a ton of stuff for sale, you'll occasionally be able to snag a limited edition poster that'll make all your friends jealous.
The Nashville Arcade – This unique shopping mall offers a different kind of experience compared to Nashville's other shopping malls. This glass shopping mall was inspired by a similarly styled one in Milan, Italy over 100 years ago in 1903. Today it's home to a huge assortment of often budget friendly local shops and eateries, and being right in the middle of Nashville, is a very popular stop for visitors and residents alike.
Ernest Tubb Record Store – One of the remaining old school record stores around, Ernest Tubb has a few locations throughout Tennessee, but the one in Nashville has the old Ernest Tubb tour bus available for you to walk around in. Ernest Tubb is known for having a wide selection of records, tapes and CDs with a specialty in the old music that you're going to have trouble finding anywhere else. Even if you could, Ernest Tubb makes a point of maintaining very reasonable prices on all their merchandise, on top of a very friendly and helpful staff. Definitely one of the best gift or souvenir shops in Nashville if you happen to be visiting, and it remains a frequent stop for many musically-inclined residents.
Opry Mills Has just reopened after the flood devasted all the stores but the newly renovated store represents the best in all that Nashville shopping has to offer and is well worth a visit.
