I am moving from out of state, where is the best place to shop for appropriate clothing close to my Jacksonville apartment?

We all know that having the appropriate clothing to fit the climate that you live is important. The climate in Jacksonville does not usually require a thick wool coat, long johns, snow boats, and ear muffs and gloves; although there are probably two to three weeks out of the year that you will be glad you at least have a thick coat and gloves, which is not the norm for Jacksonville. Finding the best place to shop close to your Jacksonville apartment that offers everything you need is key to acquiring the perfect wardrobe for your new location.

OakLeaf Town Center is located off of Old Middleburg Road and Argyle Forest Blvd on the Westside of town and close to several apartments in Jacksonville. OakLeaf features a large number of stores and restaurants in an outdoor shopping mall. The anchor stores include SuperTarget, Home Depot and Kohl's. Other shops located at OakLeaf include AC Moore, PetSmart, Office Max, Lifeway, Sally Beauty, Hair Cuttery, Ross, Lane Bryant, Justice, and many more. There are over 40 stores to choose from to meet all your clothing needs. While visiting OakLeaf, you can grab a meal at one of their many restaurants. Some restaurants on site include Chick-fil-A, Chili's, Panera Bread, Panda Express, Pizza Hut, Five Guys Burgers and Fries and many more yummy options.

Another wonderful town center, which is in a central location for several apartments in Jacksonville, and is the largest in Jacksonville at this time, is the St. Johns Town Center located on the Southside, right off of I295 and Butler Blvd. The St. Johns Town Center is an outdoor lifestyle mall and is home to 150 of the hottest stores and restaurants in the area. The anchor stores include SuperTarget, Old Navy, Ross, PetSmart, Dillard's and Dick's Sporting Goods. Other shops include Lifeway, Lane Bryant, Justice, Barnes & Noble, DWS, American Eagle, The Apple Store, Bath & Body Works and more than 100 other shops. The St. Johns Town Center also features some amazing restaurants including The Cheesecake Factory, P F Changs, Maggiano's Little Italy, Mitchell's Fish Market and many others.

If outdoor shopping isn't for you, you could try the many malls in Jacksonville. The Avenues Mall, a two-story mall, is located on the Southside right off of I95 and Philips Hwy features many great stores. It is a short drive from many amazing Jacksonville apartments. Some of the anchor stores include Forever 21, Sears, Dillard's, JC Penney, and Belk. You will also find stores such as Banana Republic, Aeropostale, The Disney Store, Coach, Sketchers, The Children's Place and many more. They also feature a food court so you can stop by and have something to eat while shopping.

Jacksonville is home to great shopping locations all around town. These three are just a sampling of what you will find. No matter what area of town your Jacksonville apartment is, there is a mall or town center within a short drive. You can also find Walmart and Target in every location of the city for easy shopping. You will have no problem finding the perfect clothing to fit the weather in Jacksonville and Florida.
