G – L – A – M – O – R – OUS, yeah. If you’re looking to up the glam factor, the Valley of the Sun is where to go for supreme shopping. Unbelievable handbag departments, national and local boutiques and out-of-this-world shopping centers abound. Here are the places to get your AMEX on in Arizona.

These are the winners of Best Of Our Valley 2013 in the Shopping category – the best of the best in Arizona. The winner each category this year will be featured in Arizona Foothills Magazine’s March 2013 issue, a tell-all guide to the coolest people and places in the Valley of the Sun, as chosen by its residents. The winner with the most total votes will be featured on the cover of Arizona Foothills Magazine’ s Best Of issue (but we aren’t telling who won the cover just yet!). All those who won this year can download their 2013 Winners logos here.
