The Jintha Center is located in the Commercial District of Lastelle Island on Oscion, in the Par'tha Expanse. It is the largest shopping mall in the Expanse. Nearly two kilometers long, with as many as seven levels in parts, Jintha Center hosts thousands of retail stores. Many of the stores are local outlets of exclusive Valcarian establishments which serve only the elite. These shops keep the upper class (especially the young), clothed in the absolute latest Valcarian styles, which is important since there is a constant flux of nobles coming to and from the Empire to show up those who lag behind.
