South Huntsville Living

Welcome To South Huntsville!


“Buy what you don’t have yet, or what you really want, which can be mixed with

what you already own. Buy only because something excites you, not just for the simple

act of shopping.”

Karl Lagerfeld

Visitors and south Huntsville locals have shopping choices which range from exclusive boutiques to major department stores, big box discount stores, home improvement retailers, sporting goods and electronics.  
If you prefer shopping in an indoor mall, check out Parkway Place.
A few of the larger outdoor malls in south Huntsville include Valley Bend (view the tab on this website,) The Village on Whitesburg, and Main Street South (pictured below.)

OK, we admit that REALLY serious shoppers might occasionally have to venture to other areas (or even other states) in order to satisfy their need to shop. For the rest of us, there are more than enough shopping opportunities right here at home to fill our closets, shelves and pantries! 

One of the goals of South Huntsville Living is that of encouraging residents to support our local merchants. We have a beautiful, thriving community and it is sure to continue to prosper with our support and wise shopping decisions. The more we shop and dine locally, the more options we'll have in the future. When deploying a business, many factors regarding demographics are considered, but decisions tend to hinge on one key factor. The primary consideration is how well existing businesses of a similar nature are doing in this area. In short, we must support the types of business that we'd like to see more of, so shop south Huntsville!
