Shopping in Boston

Boutiques, art galleries and other shops crowd Beacon Hill and the Back Bay area: try Back Bay's John Lewis, Inc for exquisite handcrafted jewellery. Quirky gifts and daring fashions make the South End increasingly appealing with locals and visitors alike. Most shops open at 9am or 10am (12pm on Sunday) and close between 6pm and 9pm. It's worth noting that Massachusetts charges no sales tax on clothing priced under US$175.
