The Misthalanian capital city of Varrock is a very economically active city, and regularly trades not only with neighboring settlements and nations but also within itself. As a result, many stores, shops, and stalls have been established within Varrock that players may trade with.
Varrock General StoreEdit
Varrock's general store is one of the most popular stores in the game. New players can buy a Newcomer map which can help them find their way around the free version of RuneScape and help them to start earning money
Players can sell whatever they wish at the store, though mainly low level players sell their items, which are often not wanted by higher level players. It is also hard to sell items to this general store as many people sell their items here, causing the store's inventory limit to be reached very easily.
At the southern entrance is a store where players can buy swords. The store sells bronze, iron, steel, black, mithril and adamant daggers, swords and longswords. Along with the Rune Shop in the Champion's Guild, F2P players have access to buy all but two swords without interaction with other players.
Thessalia's Fine ClothesEdit
Thessalia's Fine Clothes sells several types of clothes including robes, capes, gloves, and boots. Thessalia will also change a player's default clothing for free. Players who were lucky enough to obtain a scythe when they were dropped, can retrieve it from this store if it is lost. Players can also attain unique outfits award from random events such as the prince outfit from Iffie located in her rocking chair in the store.
Fancy Clothes StoreEdit
There is also a clothing store in the south-eastern part of the city. However, only members can buy items here on member servers. It features heavily in the Hunter skill and it is here that you have furs made into camouflage and other Hunter gear.
Zaff's Superior Staves!Edit
Near the centre of Varrock is Zaff's Superior Staves!, a store where players can purchase staves for magic.
Zaff sells staves to free-to-play players. What some to believe be Zaff's son Naff sells battlestaves for use in the Crafting skill. Each day he gets a stock of battlestaves that can be sold in limited quantities to each buyer dependant upon which type of Varrock armour he/she has. If the player does not have any of the armour Naff will only sell you 8 battlestaves.
Horvik's Armour ShopEdit
Horvik's Armour Shop is near the centre of Varrock. Here, players can buy platebodies and chainbodies as well as platelegs and some leather armour. Many players also sell their smithed armour here for a profit.
His shop is also unusual because it has an anvil inside it for players to use.
Aubury's Rune ShopEdit

Estate Agent Edit
The estate agent is a salesman that owns a small office in northern Varrock. Although he does not sell any actual items, the estate agent can help players to customize their player-owned house for a fee.
The relatively new tanner south of the West bank and anvil will tan your hides like any other tanner in Runescape. He does not sell any items, and the release of his store reduced the size of a building next to his, which is two stories high but used to have a balcony on the second floor and a larger first floor.
