Retail stores and businesses in Aberdeen, Scotland are the focus of this portion of our guide, whether operating as a brick-and-mortar store or as an online shopping site.

Except where a more specific category exists, websites representing Aberdeen businesses selling a product would be listed in this category. As examples, if the product being sold is a building, it would be listed in the Property Sales & Rentals category instead, and if the product is a service, then it would be listed within the Services & Industries category, and so on.

Otherwise, websites representing Aberdeen automobile dealerships, bookstores, antique stores, furniture stores, gift shops, jewelry stores, office equipment stores, malls, shopping centers, and other retail outlets would be listed here.

Businesses using an online-only model could be listed here as well, if they are based in Aberdeen. In the event that a manufacturing company offers its own products for sale at its retail store or online, the company could be listed in both this category and the Services & Industry category, or a determination could be made as to the primary business model of the company or the focus of the website. When the website emphasizes the manufacture of the product, the Services & Industries category would be better, but when it emphasizes product sales, this would be the best category for the site. In some cases, the shopping area of the site could be listed here, while the index page is listed in the Services & Industries category.

One of Aberdeen's largest malls is the Union Square Shopping Centre. Situated downtown, the mall includes more than sixty retail shops, in excess of fifteen restaurants, and a ten-screen cinema. Trinity Centre is slightly smaller than Union Square, but it has a lot to offer, including jewellers, fashion boutiques, and toy stores. With more than seventy stores, Bon Accord Aberdeen is a mixture of retail stores, cafes, coffee and tea shops, as well as a Disney Store. The Academy Shopping Mall is also in the city centre. It includes just over twenty shops, but it has a good selection of fashion brands, beauty studios, bookstores, and gift shops.

These are some of the more popular shopping destinations, but you might want to browse the shops along George Street, which has a good mix of retail stores, including several high-end jewellers.

The monthly Aberdeen Farmers' Market is a great alternative to indoor shopping malls. On the last Saturday of each month, local food producers display their fruits, meats, baked goods, and vegetables in a park along Belmont Street. You'll also find stalls selling gifts, jewellery, and home decor.
