The ever-increasing collection of colossal shopping and entertainment centres in the residential southern part of Klaipėda has meant the emptying of large parts of the city centre, with Old Town being the worst affected. If you like shopping more than you like culture however, this is no doubt a good thing. Having said that, Old Town remains the place for gifts and souvenirs such as local amber and linen, although be careful of the stuff sold from the stalls at the outdoor market on Theatre Square (Teatro Aikštė). Further north over the river on H. Manto are a handful of small shopping centres plus a collection of retail outlets selling everything from handbags to shotguns. The aforementioned beasts in the south however are the place to go for most modern conveniences from digital cameras to swimming trunks.
