In terms of shopping, Warsaw has it all—from big, sparkling shopping malls to tiny boutiques and specialty stores, as well as some decent street markets. Increasingly, international chains—such as Marks & Spencer—are appearing, which has meant that locally produced products are sometimes harder to find than expensive imported alternatives. Shopping hours are usually from 11 am to 7 pm on weekdays and from 10 am to 1 pm on Saturday, but shopping malls are open until 8 or even 10 pm. RUCH kiosks, which sell bus and train tickets, newspapers, and cosmetics, are usually open from 7 am to 7 pm.
Warsaw has four main shopping streets, all in Śródmieście. The larger stores lie on ulica Marszałkowska (from ulica Królewska to plac Zbawiciela) and aleje Jerozolimskie (from Central Station to plac Generała de Gaullea, in Śródmieście). Smaller stores and more specialized boutiques can be found on ulica Nowy Świat and ulica Chmielna. Another fashionable shopping street just a bit farther off is ulica Burakowska, while some smaller designer shops and ateliers are scattered around town.
