Most of shopping activities are centred around Brisbane Street Mall and The Quadrant, both within walking distances from each other. The main departmental stores, MYERS, target & Best & Less are all located here....along with boutiques, bookstores, restaurants, cafes and banks.
Be-warned: It's NOT the world's biggest shopping area...afterall, Launceston is not a city at all, despite being Tassie's second largest town, after Hobart.
The other main shopping area will be the Kmart up at the Northeast part of the city, near Racecourse Crescent.

Ritchie's Mill was opened in the 1840's as a water driven flour mill. As times and technologies changed, the need for the mill was no longer on the forefront. Luckily enough for this building though, it is all about location!
Located now in its place is a nice little community of shops and restaurants for you to enjoy. The Mill Providore and Gallery provides you with Tasmanian food and art products, and has a pretty extensive collection. We looked at Tasmanian Honey, salsa, beer, liquor, handmade art and crafts, and a large selection of cheeses and chocolates. I could definitely live in that store for a couple weeks, NO Calls!
What to buy: Tasmanian Items
What to pay: $1 - $1000's.... depending if you want chocolates or art.
