Harwin shopping district can be fairly intimidating for a novice. It’s a sprawling labyrinth of stores and wholesale warehouses not suitable for the impatient or faint of heart. If you’ve yet to begin your journey on Harwin, we’ve got a few tips to make your visit more enjoyable.
If you’re coming from Hillcroft, turn onto Harwin Drive and head about two miles up to the Harwin Central Mart, between Fondren and Gessner. It’s the largest indoor shopping center on Harwin and boasts a variety of jewelry, fashion and tech accessories, bridal and formal wear, and odd services like henna tattoos, immigration attorneys and IT support. And unlike many stores and complexes in the area, the Harwin Central Mart bears several bathrooms, benches to rest your achy feet, and even a deli! A few of our favorites shops include Bella Jewelry, Hamoti Accessories and Treasures.
Additionally, the shopping center is one of the few places open on Sunday. Most of their prices are dirt cheap, but you’ll find some store owners are willing to bargain, especially when you purchase multiple items.
After your shopping excursion is over, treat yourself to some delicious Indian pastries and tea at Hot Breads Bakers & Confectioners at 5700 Hillcroft Ave.
