If you need it, these Wilmington shops have it. Some are mainstays, others are new, but each boasts a unique offering.
A.R. Morris Jewelers
Since 1962 A.R. Morris has offered Delawareans quality jewels at competitive prices. “What customers notice about our store is that we have the family values and integrity we started with almost 50 years ago,” says owner Bret Morris. “We also import our own diamonds, which is something that many of our competitors don’t do.” 802 N. Market St., Wilmington, 888-AGEM; armorrisjewelers.com

The concept of Dimensions is an eclectic mix of footwear, apparel, accessories and a place for everyone. “Our mission is to offer diversity to the city of Wilmington,” says owner Danny “Ace” Valentine.
