Rittenhouse Square isn’t just one of Philadelphia’s loveliest parks — it’s also home to some of the city’s best shopping. Known as Rittenhouse Row, the area’s lively sidewalks are full of small boutiques, designer shops, and big-name stores. If you’re planning a Philadelphia shopping spree, then this neighborhood should definitely be on your list. Check out a few of our top picks below.

Shops at Liberty Place

If variety is what you’re after, then the Shops at Liberty Place is a great place to start. The 60-plus retail outlets at this upscale shopping mall make for endless window shopping. It’s also completely enclosed, meaning it’s a great option during Philly’s hot summers and cold winters.

Omoi Zakka Shop

Another great store for browsing, Omoi Zakka is a charming Japanese specialty shop. Here you’ll find a lovely variety of stationery, bags, knick-knacks, and all sorts of other quirky items. It’s the ultimate shop for things you didn’t know you needed but absolutely must have once you see them.

Joan Shepp

The square also offers upscale shopping, and Joan Shepp sets the bar. This boutique has been clothing Philadelphia’s elite for decades and shows no signs of stopping. Come to see the latest in women’s fashion, from renowned labels to lesser-known designers.


Men have their own high-end destination in Rittenhouse Square. A landmark in the world of men’s fashion, Boyd’s is a four-story boutique that specializes in men’s fashion. This place is all about old-world luxury, as in having an attentive salesperson accompany you as you shop. Women’s clothing, bags, and shoes have been added over the years as well.


Started as a sneaker boutique for the hardest-to-find pairs of kicks, Ubiq has since broadened its scope to include much more. This stylish spot treats articles of clothing as works of art, putting shoes behind glass displays. All the most popular upscale-streetwear labels are represented, and high-profile releases are sold lottery-style.

The best part is, if you stay at The Rittenhouse Hotel, you’ll be in prime position to take advantage of all the best Philadelphia shopping. Check out our latest offers and promotions, and start planning your Philly shopping spree.
