The Best Places for Shopping in Costanera

Lucy Pierce

Taking inspiration from international shopping malls, the Costanera Centre is not what you’d expect to find in South America. With large Chilean department stores, luxury clothing brands and high-street names, if you’re looking for something fashion, technology, furniture, or sport-related, the Costanera Centre is the place to go.


From Argentina to Chile, this store has a quirky yet romantic bohemian vibe. Find yourself the perfect beach dress or moroccan-inspired jackets that will jazz up any outfit, adorned with jewels and embellishment as well as being complimented by eye-catching colour schemes.


Chile’s oldest and largest department store was established in Santiago back in 1889 by Italian-Chilean immigrant Salvatore Falabella. Originally a tailor shop, it is now the largest retail store in South America, having expanded to Argentina, Peru, and Colombia. Shop here for international brands and luxury goods, and be sure to keep an eye out for sales.

Bimba & Lola

Created by two Spanish sisters, Bimba Y Lola is a chic store and one of the fastest growing labels in the world. With colourful and whimsical prints that draws the attention, this is what you want to be seen wearing around Chile’s capital.

Casa Barros

Spanish jeweller Don Francisco González fled his home country in search of new opportunities in South America and began his business in Santiago in 1889, making his jewellers the oldest in Chile. A sanctum for wealthy Chileans and tourists looking for a dazzling piece of jewellery adorned with glistening diamonds or chic pearls or even a slick watch.
