Spend a beautiful day walking around the shops at Easton

Easton is celebrating 20 years serving the Columbus area, and it has never looked better. The outdoor environment makes it a lovely day to spend a day walking outside. It’s large, glittering fountains at the center of the square offer a nice place to rest on the benches and recharge, and the outdoor water park is the perfect place for kids to jump around in the summer.

Easton Town Center is no-doubt the most pedestrian-friendly shopping experience in Columbus. With its lush tree-lined streets with spacious sidewalks, people can walk and shop in a safe outdoor environment.

World-Class shopping for the entire family

No matter who is in your party, there’s something for every family member at Easton. Bring the kids to get a new wardrobe at various children’s apparel stores, such as Abercrombie Kids or Gymboree. Shop for both yourself and the kids at GapKids and BabyGap, and remember that while you’re looking at a blouse in H&M that they have adorable wares for the kids as well, all in one store!

Easton Town Center is a paradise for shoes. Clarks, Aldo Shoes, Buckle, Foot Locket, Clark, New Balance, and Sketchers are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to fabulous shoe options at Easton. Check out the large department stores such as Nordstrom and Macy’s, which also have amazing shoe selections, or check out the more unique shoes at places like Express or Free People. (Flip flops, anyone?)

Shop home and leisure to make your apartment shine at Crate & Barrel, Elm & Iron, La-Z-Boy, Pottery Barn, Williams Sonoma, and more. Here, you’ll find the finest home goods at affordable prices, so you can find the finishing touches to make your apartment feel even more like home.

If you have kids and like buying things in bulk (or if you hate running out of food at home) then shop at Costco! They’ve got everything you need at lower prices and yearly savings.

Need to take a break from all the hubbub? Grab a book at Barnes and Noble and an indulgent brew at their café and stay awhile.

Here at Easton Town Center, there’s also plenty of high-end shopping for women and men. Choose from luxury options such as Coach, Tiffany’s, and Free People, or find some favorites at Banana Republic, Express, Hollister, and many more.
