Shopping in the south
Venture to Calgary’s south to find an abundance of excellent shopping including more than 400 stores at three separate malls.
Chinook Centre is one of the city’s premier shopping, dining and entertainment destinations, boasts more than 250 stories including three major department stores as well as Calgary’s only Anthropologie, Urban Outfitters and Michael Kors locations.
If you ‘shop till you drop,’ and need a meal or beverage to rejuvenate, choose from several different restaurants or browse through the huge selection of quick dining options in one of Canada’s largest food courts, with seating for you and 800 of your closest friends. As they’re taking their food down, the youngsters (of all ages) will delight in casting their eyes up at the collection of fantastic flying machines as well as marvelling over the full-scale Albertosaurus. To complete the Chinook adventure, you can take in a movie—or two—including IMAX features at the Cineplex Odeon Theatre.
At Southcentre Mall, with more than 180 first-rate stores, a great food court and plenty of parking, you’re sure to find everything you’re looking for, including dozens of national and international store brands as well as regional names like Alberta’s own Blu's Womens Wear, a well-loved location that carries high fashion designer wear and shoes. If you’re looking to dress up your home as well as your wardrobe, you won’t want to miss dropping into Restoration Hardware and Crate and Barrel.
Deerfoot Meadows—one of the biggest open-air shopping districts in Canada—is in the heart of Calgary’s south, just off Deerfoot Trail at Glenmore Trail. You’ll find the only IKEA in Southern Alberta as well as more than 50 other leading retailers including the flagship Triple Flip store for the kids and Nevada Bob’s Golf for those who like to hit the links. You’re also sure to score at the Banana Republic and Gap Factory Stores.
After satisfying your appetite for shopping, fill up with one of the best burgers in town at Five Guys’ Burgers or hit up one of a number of other fabulous restaurants in this thriving shopping community.
When it comes to shopping, you can’t beat the south.
