Overview

Conveniently located on Route 2 in Cranston, Garden City Center is home to over 60 shops, services and eateries. The fabulous stores include Anthropologie, Crate and Barrel, J. Crew, L'Occitane, Sephora, Williams Sonoma, Pottery Barn, The Container Store, Providence Diamond, b.Good, Bistro 22, LA Fitness and Whole Foods Market. With L.L. Bean opening in late summer 2016 there's only more for Garden City to offer. Garden City Center was one of the first open air shopping experiences of its kind in the country and for generations families have had fond memories of GCC shopping excursions.

Love shopping in Garden City. It's beautifully laid out with many small shops. Along with some upscale clothing stores, you will find restaurants, ice cream cafes, homemade candy, a gym, and party store. It's a great area to just take a stroll.

Garden city is a great place in Cranston with nice stores and restaurants but if you want to park in the main area then give yourself extra time to find a spot in the limited parking lot

Garden City is my preferred destination for good shopping vs the mall. Parking this time of year is challenging but the store selection is worth it. Great Santa for families with little ones.

This shopping center is great for everything but clothes. If you’re over a size 14, good luck finding anything.
