The Bronx, New York City 



The shopping scene in the Bronx is a long distance apart from shopping in Manhattan. Primarily a borough of working class neighborhoods, shopping here comprises mainly of small independent stores catering to a community with a per capita income that is the lowest among New York City’s five boroughs. For bargain hunters, this offers great opportunities for shopping. However, the retail scene is gradually evolving with major retail chains already establishing their presence and construction of new shopping centers in the Bronx.

The Bay Plaza Shopping Center is one of the largest shopping malls in New York City. The mall is located adjacent to Co-op City, a more affluent part of the Bronx. A future extension of the Bay Plaza Shopping Center is the Mall at Bay Plaza, expected to open in the spring of 2014 and adding 780,000 sq. feet (72,500 sq. meters) of retail space. The $500 million Bronx Terminal Market offers nearly a million square feet (93,000 sq. meters) of retail space. Well-known anchor tenants here include Target, Home Depot, and BJ’s Wholesale Club.

A major street and shopping district in the Bronx is Fordham Road within the Fordham neighborhood. Fordham Road is among the larger shopping districts in the borough, consisting of independent stores and national retail chains targeting bargain hunters. Another major shopping district is an area in South Bronx known as the Hub, and like Fordham Road attracts shoppers searching for bargains. The Hub is a lively area where not only shops compete for customers but also street vendors.
