"You're taking me shopping. So help me, I'm gonna have some fun today, even if it kills you."
Maria Latore

Shop 'til You Strop is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories given to protagonist Toni Cipriani by Maria Latore from her home in the Saint Mark's district of Portland Island, Liberty City.


After finding Toni's name and number in Salvatore's phone number book, Maria calls Toni, and tells him to come meet her at her apartment. Not wanting to upset the Don's girlfriend, he meets Maria at her one room apartment in the St. Mark's district.

Maria informs Toni, or "Fido" as she calls him, that he is going to take her "shopping" at a store in Portland View. As they arrive, however, Toni learns that Maria is actually shoplifting for fun, and is merely using Toni as a getaway driver in an event she is caught in the act.

After losing a one-star wanted level attained for the crime, Maria orders Toni to drive to another store on the outskirts of Chinatown, where she again steals items, to Toni's disapproval. Fed up with being robbed, a store personnel charges out with a shotgun and fires at the duo once before Toni and Maria manage to escape the scene, but acquire a three-star wanted level as a result. Maria orders Toni to return to her apartment, while fending off the police, to complete the mission (players do not need to lower their wanted level).

Mission objectives

In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • Take Maria to the shop
  • Lose the heat
  • Take Maria to the shop
  • Take Maria back to her apartment


The reward for the mission is $100 and unlocks Taken For A Ride for Maria Latore. (The three-star wanted level also automatically is removed, which is also a reward.)


  • The first store you visit is the Portland View branch of the Signora Grande Italian Boutique, despite the fact that there is another branch just up the street.
  • The tone of the first couple of Maria missions is similar to that of Catalina's missions in GTA: San Andreas.
  • The name of this mission is a pun on Shop 'til you Drop.
  • After Maria's second robbery, the shopkeeper will come out aiming a shotgun at your vehicle. When the cutscene is over, the shopkeeper will fire the shotgun once and will then fire repeatedly at you with a pistol until you successfully escape.


On the PS2 version, if you activate the Never Wanted Cheat at anytime before the mission, a glitch will appear when you go to the second shop: the cutscene will not play, it was just show your car outside the shop. If you press the X button it will go to the cutscene where Maria leaves the shop after she got caught stealing. The only way to override the glitch is to not put on the Never Wanted Cheat until after the second shop's cutscene.
