Canberra does not have ribbon-style shopping development or corner stores. Remember what I've been saying about planning? It's all part of that.
As the city develops and suburbs fill, the next planned suburban area is commenced. From the time development of each suburb begins, it has its own small local shopping centre consisting of typically a small supermarket and a newsagency, chemist, doctor and service station. Some such local centres have grown over the years and, although some have withered and closed, most have survived and are valued neighbourhood assets.
What to buy: Typically the 'convenience' type items you would buy locally.
What to pay: Standard prices.
There are plenty of shopping centres around Canberra. The main malls are in Woden, Belconnen, Tuggeranong and Civic. These all have the major retail outlets, restaurants/cafes etc. There are also many smaller malls with less shops between the main malls.
