Labor Day Shopping

In Shreveport, you have several choices for shopping. Mall St. Vincent, which has several chain clothing stores such as JCPenney, American Eagle and Dillard’s, will offer great back to school sales.

Across the Red River, Bossier City’s Pierre Bossier Mall has Buckle, Sears, Dillards, JCPenny, Stage and many other clothing stores.
