    Several places: Full Figured Shopping

    by jayshell00 Updated May 8, 2005

    If you are like me then shopping for plus sizes can be a nightmare. I have composed a list of places I shop in Alexandria adn what they carry.
    Simply Fashion- my favorite store, carries attire for most situations, including super Plus, Also shoes, jewlery, and ethnic attire
    Catherines-More upscale clothing, buisness or church, some nice formal wear. I hit the sale racks. Some super Plus
    Cato"s-Causal clothes, mostly carries sizes 14-26, Some shoes, jewlery, and home interior
    Avenue- carries buisness wear, and casual, Mall shop
    Marshals- carries a little bit of everything and often only one of each thing 0-26

    What to buy: There are some other shops in town that carry plus sizes but I rarely find any thing there, yet I feel they are worth mentioning. JC Pennys, Sears,Goodys, Burks Outlet, Walmart and a few other mall shops.

    Shop Till You Drop in Alexandria!

    by BuickMackane Written Sep 16, 2003

    Once you get fully acquainted with the area, you can shop your heart out. You won't find the stores if you're staying in the downtown area. You really do need to get in the car and cruise until everything becomes crystal clear, but you'll be pleasantly surprised. The Alexandria Mall and its surrounding stores have plenty to offer. Numerous chains from Home Depot to clothing stores to booksellers are in abundance. Take a drive along the roads that parallel and intersect with Highways 28, 71 and 165 (MacArthur Drive), Masonic Drive, Jackson Street Extension to get a feel for things.
