Truckee shopping is best described as eclectic and fun. In a town that, on the surface at least, looks like you’ve stepped back into a time when cowboys ruled, discovering a shop selling world-class art beside a boutique for ultra-funky women’s clothing keeps you wondering what’s coming up next! Whatever it is you’re personally looking for, there’s probably a Truckee store to provide it.
No worries if you’re not a shopaholic. You can pinpoint exactly what you’re looking for at Truckee stores and get a quick in and out experience. But for people who consider shopping a sport, you can hone your skills to a fine precision here.
Historic downtown is a fabulous place to spend time just wandering in and out of Truckee’s shops that line the main street. On either side of River Street or the streets that intersect, you’ll find clothing, sports equipment, mountain home furnishings, gifts, jewelry, fine art, florists and much, much more. The atmosphere of River Street, with all the adjoining shops and restaurants housed in historic buildings, creates the Truckee shopping experience, a kind that may be unlike others that you’re used to. The Wild West feel of downtown Truckee merges with hip, interesting retailing, and it’s pretty appealing.
