You all know I am a huge fan of the Shop Local Shop Small movement! A great example of a local and small business hub is Barracks Road Shopping Center in Charlottesville, Virginia. This shopping center is located just off the Rt. 29 bypass, conveniently a short drive off of I-64, in Albemarle County in Central Virginia. Generations of Virginians have shopped at Barracks Road, which dates back to 1957! My family has often used Barracks Road as a meeting place. Growing up in the Shenandoah Valley, cousins, my parents and Aunts would meet at Barracks Road for a great meal and shopping. I have so many memories getting a hot chocolate and then reading Betty & Veronica comics with my cousin at Barnes & Noble. The Happy Cook helped my husband and I build together our home kitchen tools, cookware and bakeware over 10 years ago. Lilly Pulitzer helped me find dresses for bridal events and the Foxfield Races. Today, I’m going to share with you why Father’s Day gifts are easy to come by at Barracks Road Shopping Center and continue reading for a Father’s Day gift card giveaway to Barracks Road!
Barracks Road is a shopping center that has tons of different kinds of retail and dining establishments. One reason it has had such lasting power is because it has shops for ALL price points. You may have your national or international chain stores (Old Navy, Barnes & Noble, ULTA, Nike Factory), but you also have regional or standalone boutiques carrying rare or one-of-a-kind items. For out-of-towners, this shopping center could be compared to Willow Lawn in Richmond, Virginia, however, it has many more high end or boutique shops that you can’t find in other small cities of this caliber.
