Types of stores
The Albuquerque metro region has an abundance of shopping. In addition to certain favorite, long-standing department stores, there are also malls, specialty boutiques, discount stores, and antique shops.
Stores in downtown commercial areas can be open anywhere from 0900 to 1700 or 1000 to 2000 during the week, with shorter hours on the weekends. Suburban malls and stores are typically open from 0900 to 2100 Monday through Saturday, and 1200 to 1700 or 1800 on Sunday. During the weeks before Christmas, many larger stores have extended hours for holiday shopping.
