Retail Shopping

Although the majority of business in the LA Fashion District is dedicated to wholesale business, retail shopping is a vital part of the District’s landscape. The LA Fashion District is a bargain hunter’s paradise, with over 1,000 stores that sell to the general public at wholesale discounted prices. Shoppers can expect to find bargains of 30% to 70% off of retail prices on apparel and accessories for the entire family.

Retail stores in the Fashion District are independent, not brand name or chain stores that you will find in a typical shopping mall. However, you will find many discounted brand names in some of the stores.

GENERAL BUSINESS HOURS
General business hours are Monday – Sunday, from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Saturdays are the busiest days. Sundays, only about 30% of the stores are open. Santee Alley and many stores around Santee Alley are open 365 days a year. Individual store hours may vary, contact stores directly.
