    We use the centre to suggest the middle of a city or town.

    Something becomes your favorite based on your opinion. Something becomes popular based on how many people like it.Are you trying to say that you like the 2 shops, or that they are liked in general by lots of people?

    My two favorite shops are in the town/city centre is perhaps what you're trying to write.

    2.I prefer to be a window shopper.
    Is it ok?

    Yes.

    3.She is very economical and me too.
    Isn't so am I better ( or the only possibility)?
    Can I use economical in this sense?
    ... and so am I sounds good. I think economical is fine.

    4.I love clothing and shoes.
    Is it ok?

    Clothes.

    5. I am small figure and oveweight.

    You would say I have a small figure - but yes, it sounds weird, because you wouldn't say someone who's overweight has a small figure. Short is better.

    THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
