From high-end department stores to independent boutiques to quirky shops selling handmade local goods, there’s something for every shopping taste in St Louis. Situated in Missouri along the Mississippi River, the city’s retail opportunities are spread throughout its diverse neighborhoods, with each district renowned for its own specialty wares, whether it’s antiques, vintage fashion, furniture, or jewelry.

Apotheosis Comics

The enduring popularity and success of the comic book industry continue to defy those who stubbornly claim that it is a category merely for kids. In St Louis, comic book fans of all ages and tastes can count on Apotheosis Comics to satisfy their animated reading needs. A relative newcomer to the city’s commercial landscape, the boutique store is not only a purveyor of a huge variety of comic book and graphic novel titles (not to mention nerdy gift ideas), but is also a community gathering place where locals can come and enjoy coffee, local craft beers, wine, and snacks among like-minded folk. The venue also runs a full calendar of events, including reading groups for kids on weekends.
