hipshops is a project of a young entrepreneurial team that was founded with the aim to create and promote social platforms for the modern user needs.

With hipshops we intend to gather different type of shops from around the world, whether they're selling clothes, electronic gadgets or fine cheese. We'll be looking into shops that have premium quality merchandise (hard to find items, local source products are a bonus) coupled with an original and inspired interior design (with a penchant for the use of eco-friendly building materials), well groomed staff (a good knowledge of the items on sale, willingness to help and serve clients' needs, nice attitude and a look in line with the shop's image are a must) and of course, last but not least, a coherent graphic concept for the shop's identity and communication tools (printed materials, website etc).

The shops selection criteria are in the hands of our group of specialists with a lot of experience in retail marketing, communication and graphic design.

This way we can guarantee you a unique database of interesting places to shop, no matter if you travel or plan a week-end in your own city.

On the website, shops are tagged based on the city and the type of merchandise on sell. Photos, address, map, a description and further details such as working hours and shop events will quickly help you decide if a particular shop is relevant. Make a selection of places to go in a snap by adding them to a list. You can create as many shop lists as you want, then share them with friends or simply print them.

We would like to keep on improving hipshops so you will find it more and more useful. This is why we really want to hear from you, so don't hesitate to share with us your thoughts and ideas on how we could make hipshops a better place and please do recommend us the shops that you love.

Happy shopping!
