Retail therapy is something that almost everyone has experienced at one time or another. You are a little bit upset or depressed and make yourself feel a little bit better by buying some new Bahco tools for the garden or a new outfit that makes you look great. While most of us know that you cannot buy happiness we all have material possessions that can make our lives a little easier or more fun and sometimes, no matter who you are, you just need to indulge. Luckily for those living in Green Bay there are lots of places where you can get some new woodworking machinery to enrich a hobby or something to add to one of the rooms in your house.
In terms of malls in the city, the biggest is Bay Park Square. There are over one hundred stores including Kohl's, ShopKo, and Younkers as anchors. You could also get some new vanity cabinets at Younkers Furniture Gallery, a new outfit at Old Navy or something for the kids at Children's Place. There is also the East Town Mall, which is anchored by Hobby Lobby, Fashion Bug, Petco, Kohl's, ShopKo, ALDI, and Office Max. Either of these locations will serve you well if you want to give your credit card a real workout or are just looking to pick up a few necessities.
There are also many specialty shops in the area for those that are looking for something beyond what you can get at the mall. You might be interested in buying something for your daughter's office, who works as a psychologist Hamilton based, or could need something a little bit unique for a baby shower for one of your friends. If so, you should head down to Washington Street or Olde Main Street. These are also great spots for some window shopping on the weekend or if you're taking a lunch away from your job making shrink labels.
There are also some things that the area is known for and if you're in town for a visit than you may be looking for a souvenir. There are lots of stores where you can get some Packers merchandise and even more where you could get some great local cheese or other dairy products. And there are even a few wonderful chocolate shops in the Green Bay area for those looking for a treat for themselves or a gift for others.
Retail therapy is a great way to relieve some stress but you might have to be a little bit careful of how much you buy. Some studies show that as many as one third of people can develop addictive tendencies when shopping. While it doesn't hurt to buy something nice every once in a while most of us still have to watch how much we're spending.
