Clothing shops around Somerset West are in abundance and include popular stores such as Truworths, Edgars, Woolworths, Foschini and Mr Price and where you shop for clothes will largely depend on your taste and budget. For example, Mr Price stores, found both in the main road of Somerset West and inside the Somerset Mall sell a lot of budget wear that is still considered fashionable. While stores like Truworths and Truworths Man cater for those looking for things like fashion T-shirts and jeans of perhaps a higher quality and a little more expensive.
There are baby clothing shops in the area as well which sell outfits for new born babies and children up to a certain age, that is apart from the local ‘Anchor Store’ Ackermans. Other fashion and speciality stores exist such as the Billabong surf clothes shop or the Hang Ten store, both of which are located in the mall. Places that sell outdoor gear such as warm jackets, socks, hats and boots for winter or hiking include Outdoor Warehouse and Cape Union Mart.
Cheap shirts, caps, belts, hats and other accessories can be bought at the Strand market over most weekends when the weather is fine. The market is popular for both visitors and locals alike looking to pick up some bargains from the many stalls that sell products from the Strand beach car park near the Spur restaurant in beach road. Shopping is best enjoyed during the quieter times of the week when many people are working and you have the time and freedom to browse without all the hustle and bustle associated with the weekend shoppers. Take your time and have a good look around the many clothing shops in Somerset West, Strand and the Helderberg region.
