Make the Tualatin Valley your runway with tax-free spring shopping at Oregon’s best shopping centers. Because Oregon does not impose a sales tax on goods and services, many visitors use their Oregon getaway as a chance to refresh their wardrobes. If you’re on a mission for a spring refresh, then loads of options, easy parking and a mix of big-box and boutiques may be on your agenda. Enter, the Tualatin Valley.
With the largest Nordstrom in the state of Oregon, you better start at Washington Square. Schedule ample time to scour the shopping center’s 170 standout stores. Pro-shopper tip: Head to the guest services center with your out-of-town ID to receive a free “Shopping & Dining Rewards” bundle that’s full of savings.
On springy days, take in the breeze while shopping at the European-styled Bridgeport Village. The cobblestoned pathways truly do create a little shopping haven. One of Bridgeport Village’s many strengths is its mix nationwide fashion standards alongside thoughtfully curated boutiques. Mapel Boutique mixes fashionista favorites—like BB Dakota, Citizens of Humanity and Alternative Brand—with local and independent designers.
Yet another great place for a shopping spree is The Streets of Tanasbourne, which is home to an H&M, REI and Macy’s—something for everyone. Just a quick drive from The Streets of Tanasbourne, shoppers can find one-of-a-kind finds at Hillsboro’s many antiques and vintage shops.
For even more retro fashions (because we all know that everything old eventually becomes new again) head to Beaverton’s The Vault. The boutique is a testament to high-quality clothing never going out of style, from vintage Missoni to hand stitched gloves to Audrey-approved little black dresses.
Extra perk: With shopping-themed hotel deals, planning a weekend filled with non-stop (and tax-free!) shopping has never been easier or affordable.
