Nashville One of Top 10 Shopaholic Cities in US

We’re a nation of shopaholics, with Sex and the City’s Carrie Bradshaw (obsessed with shoes and designer labels) and How I Met Your Mother’s Barney Stinson (obsessed with suits and luxury goods) representing on our television sets what two of America’s estimated 18 million shopaholics might look like in real life.

So where do all these shopaholics live? looked at the top 100 cities in the U.S. by population to see which cities have households spending the most on clothes, shoes and other wear. The spending data, which comes from the US. government, from anonymous and aggregated spending transactions from Citi, and third party data providers, was tracked for a full year from March 2010 to March 2011. Cities were then ranked by highest average monthly spending. The national average for monthly clothes spending is $142.08.

#3 Nashville - Top 10 Shopaholic Cities in US

Nashville comes in at #3 on the list with residents average monthly spending in clothes, shoes and other wear at $251.17. I’m not surprised as we have so many great shopping centers! Some of my favorites include: Green Hills Mall, Hill Center and the boutiques along 21st Avenue in Hillsboro Village. The shopping scene in Nashville is one that continues to grow. Exciting new additions to the Nashville shopping scene include Nordstrom and The Container Store, both in Green Hills Mall.
