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. Savvy shoppers flock to Alberta to save up to 10 percent on taxes compared to other provinces.
Start saving at West Edmonton Mall, the largest shopping centre in North America. The size of a small city, WEM’s 800+ shops and services - including two hotels and 100 places to eat - mean you really can shop til you drop. Bring the whole family and let loose in the mall’s huge waterpark, skating rink, marine park and the world’s biggest indoor amusement park.
Meander through the historic shopping districts of our gateway cities. Browse the fashion forward boutiques of Calgary’s Stephen Avenue or head to Old Strathcona in Edmonton and lose yourself in unique clothing, retro furniture, antiques and crafty creations. Retail therapy in Alberta just might involve a new suitcase.
