Shopping in Russia
Today Russia is becoming an increasingly large shopping market offering great opportunities for genuine shopaholics, both local and international. Every single Russian city offers a number of malls and hypermarkets with a wide range of high quality products for any budget. Though many shops are open till late hours (9-10 pm), the weekend is the best time for family shopping, therefore almost all large malls in Russia offer cinema halls, playgrounds for children, food supermarkets and food courts, so the families can use a shopping center as a one stop shop and spend the whole day there.
Despite large malls which are mostly located in the outskirts, one can find numerous fashion boutiques in the central streets and fashion quarters of the cities offering brand clothes, shoes, jewellry, make-up products, etc.
