Chic Shopping in The District
When your shopping entails a time crunch a department store is No. 1. But when there's time to linger, consult this story to make your next shopping spree feel like a mini-vacation.

Not every outing and errand can be an adventure. Let's face it: You know your local Target like the back of your hand! But the Montgomery Heritage District, revamped as "The District," is chocked full of new little discoveries and historic landmarks to make your next shopping venture one to remember.


Boasting more than 120 shops and services, The District is always in fashion. Whether shopping for clothing, jewelry, decor, or beauty products, shopaholics can find just what they're looking for before ever leaving the house with its new, easy-to-navigate Web site. A clickable map even makes picking and choosing what type of businesses to view easy so that women can plan out a day to shop 'til they drop.


Until August, The District didn't have a Web site at all. But last year the city of Montgomery joined with Pop Design Works to rebrand and create an online home for the evolving community. Pop is a local strategic communications firm that works with companies to increase communication, usually through creating a Web site or brochure. Located on the corner of Cooper and Montgomery Roads within The District, Pop was the perfect partner to establish the community's online persona.


100509FASHION2.jpgChad Planner, principal/creative director of Pop Design Works, made The District's Web site so that each business in the neighborhood has the option to have its own administrative page on the site. Each business's mini-page is updated easily to include special events, contact information, current promotions, photos, specials of the day, job listings and whatever else would make the customers' experience that much more enjoyable, Planner says.


Whether using the Web site to construct a game plan or choosing to wander The District sans the new technology, the experience will not disappoint. Keep your eyes peeled for historic landmark properties, and make sure to hit Obsess Boutique for premium women's apparel and accessories. Obsess offers free personal style consultation, so to reserve a session, send an e-mail to, This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or call the store at (513) 793-4777.


After hitting the boutiques and acquiring all you need to dress to impress, pamper yourself at Woodhouse Day Spa. With more than 70 different treatment options, you can add a little relaxation to the day and make yourself feel beautiful.

Finally, nourish those lean, mean shopping machines with a meal at Z Place. Z Place cafe offers gourmet sandwiches and homemade soups served alongside a varied selection of wine and imported beer that can be enjoyed on their outdoor patio.
