If you live or have lived Kent, Ohio, you know the weather gets chilly quick, so I figured it’s about time to do some fall shopping.

There aren’t many places to find clothes in Kent, but there are plenty of shopping options in the surrounding area (thank goodness). While I love my fresh air, I also find stress relief in a shopping trip. Below you can find a list of some of the closest shopping options.


This little shop is perfect for a quick shopping trip. I say this because Figleaf is the only clothing retail store located in downtown Kent, so it’s the only option we have. Even though its location isn’t desirable, it does have cute clothes to offer to women. It’s not that expensive either, which is good for a college budget! If you’re not in the mood for an all-out shopping trip, Figleaf is perfect.

Chapel Hill Mall

Chapel Hill Mall is located more towards Akron than Kent, but it’s not that far of a drive. I don’t suggest going to this mall. It’s a little dingy and doesn’t have much of a variety. I only go here if I need something basic and don’t have time to drive anywhere else.

Summit Mall

Summit Mall is a much nicer mall than Chapel Hill. It has classier stores and a clean, welcoming atmosphere. I would say it’s your typical mall with your typical stores, and there’s nothing wrong with that. The only downfall for us Kent natives is it’s around 45 minutes away from us, but I think a shopping trip here is worth the drive.

First & Main Hudson

I think this little area is adorable. First & Main Hudson is a shopping and dining area in Hudson, Ohio. There are not many shops here, especially for a younger crowd, and clothing can be pricey. With that said, I do like to go here to look around and find something unique. If you want to do some walking and shopping at privately-owned businesses, this shopping area would be perfect.

Aurora Farms Premium Outlets

This is a place that I suggest you make a trip to, even though it’s 30 plus minutes from Kent. Aurora Farms Premium Outlets has something to offer everyone, including stores like Nike Factory Store, Saks Fifth Avenue Off 5th and Sunglass Hut. As you can tell, there is quite a variety.

My favorite aspect of the outlets is the fact that you can buy these name brands at a lesser price. There is almost always a sale, whether it’s a sale in a specific store or a sale event that the outlet is hosting. I love it! You can find out about these sales in advance by visiting the website.

That finishes up my list! Do you know of any other shopping areas in the Kent area? What do you think of them?
