Shopping Binge Bonanza: How To Plan Your Day at Plaza Garland

If you’re looking for a place to have the perfect shopping binge in the Garland, Texas area, look no further than Plaza Garland. With live entertainment and 90 retail spaces, there’s something for everyone.

Plaza Garland is more than a shopping center; it’s a shopping experience. To learn more about what Plaza Garland has to offer and how to plan your shopping spree, keep reading below for the details.

Study the Store Directory

With 90 different shops, it’s easy to plan a whole day trip at Plaza Garland alone. However, you want to ensure that you’re maximizing your time while you’re here and visiting the stores you want to visit the most.

That’s why it’s important to study the store directory map before you start shopping. Preparing beforehand allows you to pinpoint the locations of the stores with the most desirable items and services.

You can then create a plan for which stores you want to start and end your day with. Studying the store directory also lets you navigate around the areas with the most foot traffic, so nothing can stop you from making the most out of your day.

Keep Track of Sales and Promotions

If you’ve had your eye on something, but the price is a little too steep for your spending budget, be sure to track your favorite stores for sales and promotions.

From time to time, sellers may offer special deals on items. Keeping track of items at your favorite shops is a great way to get the items you want like seasonal clothing at potentially significant discounts.

Many sellers have post-Christmas sales and other special events where they will price items cheaply to clear out the previous season’s items and make way for new merchandise. This allows you to tap into big savings.

A study of more than 4,400 adults conducted by CNBC and Morning Consult found that 77% of Americans planned to slash their spending on non-essential items. Be careful to spend your hard-earned money wisely on items you need or know you’ll get a lot of use out of.

Make a List of Your Most Desirable Items

It can be fun to go on a shopping spree, but too much impulse buying can easily get you in trouble. While those rhinestone-studded cowboy boots looked like a must-have in the store window, the novelty can quickly wear off once you get home.

If you can relate to this phenomenon, you’re not alone: 8 out of 10 impulse buys are made in brick-and-mortar stores. Making a list of your most desirable items can help you curb your spending habits. This will allow you to get the items you really need first while only window shopping for more frivolous items.

Plan Optimal Shopping, Rest and Meal Timing

When you shop is just as important as what you’re shopping for. If you don’t plan an ideal time to go shopping, you’ll likely run into snags that can affect your overall shopping experience. You need to take into account things like the season and day of the week.

For example, during the holidays, you’re likely to encounter increased foot traffic which can lead to crowded stores, long lines, and congested parking lots.  This can impact the enjoyment of your shopping binge excursion. Garland, Texas in Dallas County had a robust population of 235,293 people in 2023, so shops and restaurants often fill up quickly on popular days.

Plan your shopping trip during off-days like Monday or Thursday, not during the busy weekends. Even better, plan a shopping trip post-holiday season to scoop up some amazing end-of-season bargains.

You may want to shop til you drop, but in reality, it is best to allow yourself time to rest and have some meals or snacks during a busy day of shopping. This will help you stay energized and refreshed throughout your shopping binge.

Plaza Garland has great restaurants for you to choose from, such as:

  • Tres Hermanas Salvadorian Food
  • Little China Chinese Food
  • Tortas El Niño Pobre Mexican Food
  • Jannet’s Pizza and Pasta
  • Henrique’s Café Mexican Food

You’ll also find places like Eliza’s Fruteria Food and Drinks and Mango Loco Mania Mexican Food Market for more casual food, beverage, and dessert items.

Park Once and Be Done

Going to multiple stores often requires you to drive to each store and re-park in a different lot each time. At Plaza Garland, you only need to park once to explore our diverse array of stores arranged like an indoor bazaar.

Our spacious parking lot ensures convenient access for all your shopping requirements with just a single parking session. If you’re planning to bring home a big haul, be sure to arrive early and get a spot up front. This will make it easier to bring items out to your car if your cart is full of more purchases than you can carry!

Have Some Fun at Our Multicultural Events

Plaza Garland is more than a shopping center- it’s also a bustling center of cultural activity. You’ll find a wide calendar of events going on at Plaza Garland for kids and adults absolutely free throughout the year.

Some examples of our entertainment include Mariachi Fiesta, The Toty and Andy Show, and IDANIA Live! There are also seasonal events like our Cinco de Mayo Festival, Annual Turkey Giveaway, and our Christmas Extravaganza.
