Living in Trenton, we get the best of all worlds when it comes to shopping. We’re surrounded by suburban shopping malls, and really it takes no more time for us to drive to some Rt. 1 mega-shopolis than it does someone from Princeton. But… we also get to learn about some amazing stores that serve this urban area about which most of our suburban friends are clueless.

We’ve listed some of our favorites below; click on Shopping Categories, or use the “Advanced Search” facility to find your own, perfect shopping experience.
