Cutting-edge local designers, top international labels and sumptuous spaces make for prime shopping in Alberta. Just when you think you’ve reached retail nirvana, there’s more – no provincial sales tax. Lose yourself in eclectic fashion, avant-garde art, retro furniture and crafty creations.
Start at West Edmonton Mall. The size of a small city, WEM’s 800+ shops and services – including two hotels and 100 places to eat – mean you can shop til you choose a spot to drop. Meander through Edmonton’s historic Old Strathcona District or hunt for treasures on 124th Street. In Calgary, browse for antiques and curios in historic Inglewood. Do the downtown thing on Stephen Avenue and the CORE. Find funky finery along 17th Avenue or in Kensington Village. Check out CrossIron Mills for outlet shopping.
Mosey along the Cowboy Trail in ranch country to find western collectibles. Shop for outdoor gear and unique Canadiana in our mountain towns of Canmore, Banff- Lake Louise and Jasper.
