|Shopping in Greater Hazleton|
If you're looking for convenient, quality shopping experiences, you'll find what you're looking for in Greater Hazleton.
When it comes to shopping in Greater Hazleton, we’ve come a long way. You can find everything from jewelry to clothing, gifts for your home and even a new hairstyle.
The vitality that comes with such a smorgasbord of stores is no accident. It’s the result of planning, cooperation and determination.
The retail shops, professionals and service providers in Greater Hazleton are flourishing. Whether you work in Downtown Hazleton or just enjoy spending time in an urban setting, you’ll find a thriving environment along the refurbished center city.
Go ahead… do your banking, sip a frothy cappuccino, and enjoy a leisurely stroll while browsing for gifts that sparkle, bake shop treats, health and beauty supplies, and gadgets for your office.
The city’s tallest structure, the Markle Building, was recently renovated to include retail, dining and professional space. Another of Downtown Hazleton’s taller buildings, the Altamont, is also undergoing a renaissance, with new commercial, office, and meeting space inside.
There’s plenty of convenient parking on the street, in several city-run lots, and in a three-level garage. You can’t help but feel the energy in our downtown corridor.
Before you head for home, be sure to make a pit stop at the Terrace Plaza for a unique shopping experience. This 170,000 square-foot building sits at the top of Poplar Street on 15 acres. A supermarket featuring fresh, natural foods anchors the former auto parts plant that now features high cathedral ceilings and natural window lighting.
Major retail chains Kmart, JC Penney, Boscov's and Old Navy anchor the Laurel Mall, the hub for the expanding commercial district that stretches from Route 93 along the Airport Beltway. There’s plenty of parking, including a covered lot.
Businesses are popping up all along the Airport Beltway, where you’ll find one of the largest Wal-Mart Supercenters in America! The term one-stop shopping fits this Wal-Mart and its full-sized supermarket, bank, florist, bakery, pharmacy and more.
The tract of land between Wal-Mart and the mall is the picture-perfect setting for the spacious Regal Cinemas movie theater.
Whichever way you choose to travel home from the Laurel Mall – the Airport Beltway, Route 93 or Route 309 – you’ll be tempted by great furniture stores, award-winning car dealerships, restaurants, electronics stores and much more.
Home or garden need some sprucing up? Do it for less by shopping at the Lowe’s Home Improvement Warehouse in West Hazleton, Builder’s Direct in Hazleton, TEAM Supply in Conyngham or Hazle Builders. Expert advice, the right tools and creative new products will keep you busy and under budget!
And it's no secret that the prices here can't be beat. Shopping in Northeastern Pennsylvania is a common excursion for people from New York and New Jersey who recognize the advantages of a zero-percent state sales tax on clothing.
After all of that shopping, you might be hungry and want to bring something home to prepare. When it comes to grocery shopping, Greater Hazleton won't leave you wanting, either.
From the big chains to smaller ethnic and specialty shops, Greater Hazleton has it all. There are huge supermarkets or corner stores either a short walk or a short drive from virtually anywhere in the region. You’ll find the finest meats and cheeses right here in Hazleton.
In the spring, summer, and fall, local roadside stands and farmers' markets open all over Greater Hazleton to provide residents with the freshest crops available. One such market is the Hometown Farmers Market, which features a tremendous selection of fresh corn on the cob, potatoes, tomatoes, beans, and many other fresh fruits and vegetables, most of which were picked that morning. With food stands and trade booths, the Hometown market, minutes from Hazleton, is a popular stop in the summer.
If it's fresh produce you're looking for, head to one of several local farms where the term “freshly picked” means YOU picked it yourself. Take your pick of corn on the cob, beans, strawberries, and blueberries – then return home to celebrate the harvest. In the fall, romp through local pumpkin patches for the perfect jack-o’-lantern.
Our region’s brilliant fall foliage is the icing on the cake for a perfect family outing!
