Take a leisurely stroll down the sidewalks of Frisco’s Main Street. The iconic red and white Frisco water tower stands tall amongst colorful shops with window displays of bridal gowns, women’s fashions and housewares galore. You’ll find yourself lingering frequently—Main Street shops such as Blue Door Boutique, Lillian Welch and Twisted Simplicity know how to roll out the welcome mat and make you feel at home.

The Centre at Preston Ridge

Go from the eclectic haven of Frisco Mercantile down Preston Road to a taste of modern and trendy with popular store brands. Treat yourself to a major shopping spree by visiting major retailers located at the Centre at Preston Ridge, which has over 100 stores like TJ Maxx, GameStop, Nordstrom Rack, Pier One Imports, J. Crew Mercantile and much more. You can find the brands you love and maybe even squeeze in some quality family time. My most recent shopping excursion included Payless ShoeSource for my son’s much-needed footwear updates. And since he quickly found his new shoes while I kept looking, he happily checked out GameStop next door until I was done. Having all these major retailers in close proximity to each other makes shopping for the most recognizable brands easy. And there’s an added bonus—it’s also convenient to restaurants such as Norma’s café, Mash’d or Gloria’s in case you get hungry carrying all those shopping bags around.
