I grew up by Chinook Mall in the 70's. I have watched it evolve into a crowded - unfriendly mall. I was shopping there yesterday with relatives from Ontario. As their 4 year old was getting tired we went to guest services looking for a stroller to rent - they do not have strollers to rent. We were advised that... More

Pleasantly surprised about this centre as an out of province visitor to the area. Lovely high end stores like Nordstrom, Stuart Weitzman, Harry Rosen etc. Too bad about the recent hold up -- more security presence would have been expected given that event. I only heard about the hold up when I got to my hotel that evening AFTER shopping... More

This is perhaps the largest mall in Calgary and not far away from city center. The layout is very user-friendly with plenty of signs ...sunshine enters the mall at many areas. Went to the Apple store and found Tesla shop , took a test drive and it was very convenient to do everything in the same place. There are some... More

It's Calgary's version of Yorkdale Mall in Toronto. It's big, has a bunch of decent stores and yes...for all you fruit lovers...it has an Apple Store. The three times I've been here, the whole car scene was nuts! There was 9...yes NINE...9 security guards directing traffic at their main entrance. Parking is a nightmare...right in the middle of the day... More

Central location. Underground free parking with security. Every major shop with Bay anchor. Not inexpensive but lots of choice. Good quality shops. Can easily spend the day here.

This mall is large and always busy. So if you get anxiety in big crowds, this is not the place for you. There is a good variety of shops here, including a Nordstroms. The food court is normally packed, but there is a good choice in fare. Getting into the mall is a little horrendous. There is normally a security... More

Plenty of shops to entertain yourself and cheap enough (when you convert it to British Pounds). Hollister was very cheap again when compared to UK.

For Canadian shoppers this is the best of the best although it is old and run down. There is Williams Sonoma here and Nordstrom so that is the best US style shops available..not as good as Asian mega malls.

I was looking for a Lulu Lemon location so went to this mall. We only walked down one wing of this mall. Being from the U.S., I was unfamiliar with most of the stores but there were enough to have kept me busy...Nordstrom, Pottery Barn, etc. What amazed us about this mall was their parking lot. The parking spaces have... More
