"Houston rated America's No.1 shopping city"- CultureMap

Must be why I'm here...
per

"When it comes to shopping meccas, the Galleria and the rest of Houston simply can't be beat, according to Forbes, which has ranked us as the top American city for shopping.
To measure what makes a city click for both fashionistas and bargain hounds, Forbes tallied the number of major shopping centers, individual retail locations, the consumer price index, sales tax and even the number of Walmarts in every United States city with a population over 600,000.
Texas cities were big, with a quarter of the nation's 257 million square feet of gross leasable retail area in the state. Houston came out on top with almost 17,000 retail locations and 54 shopping centers."- CM
