A Lifestyle Shopping Center Filled with Surprises in Bend, Oregon

The Old Mill District is not your typical shopping district. Sure it has over 40 stunning shops ranging from boutiques to big-name stores, but our shopping center is surrounded by miles of paved – and unpaved – walking and running trails, natural wildlife and animal habitats, and Deschutes River and Cascade mountain views from every angle. Getting outside is what being in Bend, Oregon is all about, so breathe in the fresh air as you roam from store to art gallery to winery to the latest movie.

Tax Free Shopping in Oregon

Time to update your wardrobe and gear for your favorite outings? Head to Vanilla Urban Threads for hot fashion trends, find a stunning Roberto Coin ring at Saxon’s Fine Jewelers, a custom fly fishing rod from Confluence Fly Shop or a new pizza oven from Kara’s Kitchenware – the combinations are endless!

If you’re new to Bend or just visiting, you’ll notice that there’s something wonderful missing from the Oregon shopping experience: sales tax. That means when you’re out shopping and dining in the Old Mill District and beyond, you’ll pay the price of what you’re buying with nothing added.
