October 9th, 2012 | Website Changes
Hi Everyone. To try to make this website better for
shoppers, I'm trying to add on more info and make it more
than a basic blog about Bangor shopping. Look for good
changes coming over the next month or so, including lists of
relevant stores, restaurants, hotels, and more.
June 24th, 2012 | Hungry Bangor Shoppers Need to Stop and Eat!
Luna Bar and Grill in Bangor, ME is one of the best places to eat in the entire Bangor area. Nestled in the heart of downtown Bangor, the food and drinks are amazing at this place. Not only are the meals excellent, but the price is right. When you are done with your shopping, swing by at 49 Park St, Bangor ME.

June 4th, 2010 | Rainy Summer - Great Time To Shop
Now is a great time to shop in Bangor, Maine. With all the rain we've had and the sluggish economy, many stores are offering deals and clearing inventory. One of my favorite stores for great deals is Marden's Surplus and Salvage in Brewer, Maine. They recently have been offering great deals on flooring and clothing and are worth a look. Another to check out is Metropolitan Soul in downtown Bangor. They have a nice unique selection of home decor, jewelry, and clothing, and you'll enjoy the experience.
If you are interested in either Marden's or Metropolitan
Soul, make sure to check out their stores.
March 14th, 2010 | Bangor Shopping Choices
Bangor stores offer many choices for people seeking products and entertainment. Besides the mall and downtown, people often forget that there are many strip malls and hidden business scattered throughout the city. TJ Max offers a nice variety of clothes and unique furniture in the Broadway shopping center. Marden's Surplus and Salvage in Brewer, Maine is another nice place to go to get rare items or bargains on common products. Brewer is just across the bridge.
You may also want to check out the Airport Mall over near the airport on Union St. It offers some interesting stores and bargains that you might not find in the other areas. Bangor shopping certainly has its choices.
