The Wharf isn’t just all about the delicious eats and drinks, it’s a place where serious shopping can be done.  There are a number of options for gift buying or treating yourself. Currently there are about twenty retail options that cover everything from fashion, grooming, beer, wine, spirits, books, health & fitness, and jewelry.  

We will provide updates and features on a regular basis. Here are a few of our favorites.
