Marketing for Shopping Websites

Shopping opportunities in the US are varied, diversified and highly commercialized. People love to go shopping and there's not one single US city which doesn't offer its citizens with most of their basic shopping needs, ranging from clothes to food, antiques, crafts and souvenirs. Some of the biggest cities which are targets for tourism offer a wide variety of souvenirs and memorabilia items which highly appeal to foreigners.

Given the fact that the States are mainly driven by a capitalist structure, people are often inclined to buy and thus, drive the economy forward. There are thousands of strip malls, regular malls and shops spread around the entire country. Clothes are a valuable commodity with several highly regarded designers having their products put up for sale in the US. A lot of shops have acquired worldwide recognition, being an integral part of American culture: Macy's, Sears, Bloomingdale's, Nordstrom, JCPenney, Target and Dillard's. There are several huge malls in the US, the first 5 being: King of Prussia Mall in Pennsylvania, Mall of America in Minnesota, Aventura Mall in Florida, South Coast Plaza in California and Del Amo Fashion Center in California.

Food is also important. There are numerous farmers' markets around the US and most supermarkets and hypermarkets offer a wide variety of produce readily available for the consumers to buy.
