After you play in the Playful City and visit all the many museums and golf courses, it may be time to take it easy and start looking around for souvenirs. Where are the best places to shop? Let’s start with the New Port Richey Mall, which is also called the Simon Mall, as well as the Gulf View Square Mall. These stores offer many department retail items like cards, books, entertainment, food courts, home furnishings, artworks, framing stores, clothing, electronics, jewelry and specialty shops.
Once you approach the downtown area, you will have access to more department stores in a variety of categories. For example, there are two floral shops: Flowers By Gru and Community Florist, both on Grand Boulevard. There is a bridal shop in Cheri Bloom Bridal as well as a gift store and a candy store all on the same street.
Moving on to Main Street, there is a Cameo Antique Mall, as well as Monogram House. The Unique Awards and Engraving store is found on River Road, as is Halina's Custom Interiors and Bobagrees Downtown Music School. Music shops abound in the downtown area, and you can stop and see Norton's Music on Main and On-Stage Music on Highway 19.
Fishing is popular around New Port Richey, so shopping for fish supplies is a popular pastime. Go over the highway for fishing supplies at such stores as Anclote Bait and Tackle and High Tide Bait and Tackle South. Popular grocery markets in the area include Publix Supermarkets and Winn-Dixie. Other shopping malls and outlets in the area include Beacon Woods Plaza, Countryside Mall, Curlew Crossing Shopping and Evergreen Mall.
