Shopping in Bariloche does not require much effort. Most
stores are concentrated on Rua Miter and the small
streets near it; just walk through this region and you
are up to date with local businesses. It must be kept in
mind that, despite the good amount of stores, their
prices are not always a bargain. Research is needed to
find cost-effective products.

the city are clothes and chocolates. Those who want to
buy cold clothing will find a good variety of stores,

outlet on the top floor, with pieces from previous
collections and more affordable prices. When you see a
