Why do we love shopping?

A spot of retail therapy does exactly as the name suggests! It does us the world of good. Our bodies release dopamine, the ‘feel-good’ hormone when we shop. And it doesn’t seem to matter what we are buying, as long as it’s not food shopping.

It feels good to indulge ourselves a little sometimes. Spending your hard-earned cash on something for yourself makes you feel rewarded and in control. Even if what we are buying is just a new pair of comfy slippers for a tenner or a jumper to keep us warm on the commute to work. Studies have shown that it’s not what you buy but the experience of shopping and the reward to come. As long as it’s in moderation! And, of course, bagging a bargain makes us feel even better which is why any sale in any shop is always so popular.

Where to shop in Inverness

Be sure to visit the Victorian Market. Set in the heart of the Old Town, this quirky marketplace has been a centre for trade since the 1800s. The covered market is home to unique shops you won’t usually find on the high street. Its charming and colourful wrought iron arcade and Victorian features offer a fantastic look into the old city high streets. While the newly refurbished Market Hall area is a great place to stop, refresh and refuel before enjoying more fabulous shopping in Inverness.

For high street fashion, there’s no place better than Inverness’ pedestrianised High Street. Alongside all your favourite well-known retailers and stores, you will also find regular farmers’ markets. Plus street performers and Highland pipers to keep you entertained all day long. A bustle of fabulous shops and welcoming entertainment. This is without a doubt one of the best places to shop in Inverness.

Then head to Inverness’ flagship retail centre – Eastgate Shopping Centre. Home to a number of major retail outlets, department stores and foodie parlours, it is the perfect stop for the serious shopper.

A couple of miles east of the city you will also find Inverness Shopping Park – a hub of shopping activity. With everything from clothing outlets and health and beauty stores, to pet accessories and sporting goods, there’s something for everyone.
