    Italian Centre Shop a.k.a. Spinelli's: Excellent Italian grocery store

    by Karlie85 Updated Oct 23, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Italian Centre Shop is a grocery store/deli located in Little Italy. They are owned and operated by the Spinelli family, and have been in business at their central location for 50 years, and have just opened another store on the south side. All of the cashiers are very friendly, and a lot of them speak Italian as well as English.

    What to buy: They have every Italian item under the sun that you could possibly want or need. They have a whole aisle of pasta. They have been voted the best deli in Edmonton numerous times. The deli has a seemingly endless assortment of meats, cheeses, and olives. They have excellent produce at a very reasonable price. Tons of Italian breads, beverages, deserts... you name it, they have it!

    Freecloud Records: Edmonton's rockin record store!

    by Karlie85 Updated Jul 29, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Whoever had the idea to put a record store beside an arts school was a smart man!
    I used to spend a lot of time here instead of in class when I was in junior high, buying records and pins. I go here for the punk selection. You can also expect to find some rare goodies here as well. They also sell magazines, tapes, shirts, and have lots of oldies on 7".
    If they don't have what you're looking for, they'll do their best to order it for you.
    I also like to come here to buy tickets for shows.
    Rich, the owner, is the singer/guitarist for local ska band Mad Bomber Society

    Kingsway Garden Mall: Best Mall

    by Karlie85 Written Jan 2, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In my opinion, Kingsway is the best mall in the city. It is not too big and not too small, and you can find anything you are looking for. There is a nice selection of stores without there being too much. Kingsway is located just a couple of minutes from downtown and has a main transit centre, so it is very easy to get to. The only things it doesn't have are a movie theatre and a grocery store.

    What to buy: There are a variety of clothing stores, jewellery stores, gift shops, 3 department stores, a food court, electronics stores and more!

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I was given a faster route back to Edmonton, AFTER I was already on the road :) So I got to the airport area about 4 hours early ... that's when I decided to wander about for a few hours ......

    I took Hwy2 into Edmonton ..... and decided to wander into a shopping district ..... it was getting al ittle late, and I didn't really want to shop, I just wanted to kill some time .......

    I ended up in front of a book store called Indigo .... great find! I hit up the sale table, bought a little Starbucks from the kiosk in the back of the store, and curled up in a big, comfy chair until closing ......... aaaahhhhhh. Perfect.

    What to buy: coffee, tea, books, stationary ......... and more can be found here ....

    Saturday Farmers Market: Old Stracona Farmer's Market

    by RavensWing Updated Oct 20, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Old Strathcona Farmers Market is open Saturdays from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm, all year long. There is free parking is available during the market hours.

    There are over 130 vendors in this market, the general list is :
    Arts & Crafts
    Baking & Sweets
    BC Fruit
    Bodycare
    Clothes
    Home Decor
    Jewelry
    Meat, Fish, Dairy
    Prep Foods
    Seasonal and
    Wine, Coffee Tea.

    What to buy: My two favorite vendors are the Holdon Colony Their motto is 'We only sell what we eat ourselves" They always have Garden and greenhouse vegetables, pickles (bread and butter, dill, beet, pepper), unpasteurized honey, farm fresh eggs,
    farm fresh chicken, turkey, geese and duck and saskatoon berries. Each Saturday they have 'Family Special' which is a complete dinner - potatoes, carrots, peppers - great price. Last time I was there that cost $10.00

    My other favorite vender is The Happy Camel. I love their dips, a wide variety of vegetarian dips, spreads and salads such as hummus, labaneh and tabouli. The fresh pita bread is fantastic! And you get to sample the dips so you know which one you like the best.

    What to pay: I generally go in and spend anywhere from $20-$30 when I go. It depends on if I've made it there early or later in the afternoon. Obviously the supplies are lower at the end of the day.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you're enjoying your stay in Edmonton and want to bring home a memorable, long-lasting souvenir (that's what I did!), stop by Shambhala Tattoo.

    What to buy: Tattoo or piercing

    What to pay: Depends on what you're getting done but they won't overcharge you

    red ribbon gifts inc.: Cute boutique

    by Karlie85 Updated Apr 16, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    red ribbon gifts is a cute boutique in the trendy shopping district of High Street, just off of 124 Street. The space is bright and well laid out with lots of space to walk around. Everything is organized nicely so you don't feel cramped and have no trouble finding things. red ribbon is locally owned and has been growing! They carry lines by unique designers as well as local designers, which I like. The staff are laid back and helpful, and there is good ambient music playing in the background. It's one of those stores where you can come away with at least one item you love!

    What to buy: red ribbon carries very nice women's clothing and has a nice selection of men's clothes as well. They have one of a kind jewelry, beautiful scarves and handbags and shoes. They also have some gift items and cards.

  • Gravity Pope: Poor Treatment

    by tigger44 Written Jan 25, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    What to buy: I do NOT recommend anyone shopping at this store. I recently purchased a pair of UGGs and after wearing them for an hour or so, I developed a bruise on my heel which I attributed to a defect in the boot. Surprisingly enough, the store refused to exchange them! Their Cobbler claims the boots are fine and will only exchange them for another pair if I pay a 20% restocking fee. They said UGG was very strict on return policies and offered me an insole instead. I am a retailer myself who happens to carry baby UGG boots & I have never had issues returning defective merchandise to any vendor. This is obviously a Gravity Pope tactic to avoid the hassles of an exchange. So please, BEWARE shoppers!!!

    a&b Sound: Cheap CDs & DVDs

    by VTShounen Written Sep 11, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Home entertainment systems, car audio systems, etc on the lower level, CDs, videos, DVDs books on upper level.

    What to buy: Edmonton is a great place to load up on (real, non-pirated) CDs and DVDs. Not to play favourites, but I love a&b Sound. That and later Future Shop (both Vancouver based retail chains) are known for their low price CDs and DVDs, especially when they have a sale on. Although you can find these stores throughout Western Canada, in Alberta there is NO PROVINCIAL SALES TAX! Rarely have I gone to a&b sound and paid more than $15 for a CD that I want.

    Elsifadi Bros Super Market: ~ The Mediterranean in Edmonton ~

    by RavensWing Written Apr 2, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Elsafadi's Super Market is a Mediterranean grocery store. If your looking for imported Mediterranean food this is the place to go. It has been open for 24 years as a neighborhood family style grocery store. It is quite a nice store with a lot of produce, deli meats and fresh halal meats.

    The prices are fair & the owner is very nice. You can get a lot of specialty food items here which can be difficult to find including Grape Leaves, Middle Eastern spices, olives, and specialty oils.

    They have their own bakery and make a lot of their own bakery items, including their own pita bread.

    The only thing is that sometimes the produce is not in the greatest condition, although generally cheaper than the other grocery stores.

    There are two locations in Edmonton.

    What to buy: This is the store to go to if you are looking for halal meats, imported Middle Eastern foods.

    What to pay: Well that really depends on what you wish to buy, although it is generally cheaper than the major grocery store chains.

    Edmonton City Centre: A Mall With Style

    by Hanau93 Written May 5, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Edmonton City Centre Mall is a shopping centre that connects to three buildings via pedway starting with the original Edmonton Centre, the old Eaton Centre and Manulife Place. It has been remodelled but the changes aren't too drastic. The Bay is now situated in the old Eatons and other interesting stores are Home Outfitters, Winners, Urban Planet, Coles Books etc. The higher priced stores are definitely in Manulife Place, even the food fair looks rather fancy and isn't as overcrowded as the Al fresco one in the first part.

    What to buy: see above..

    Londonderry Mall: Edmonton's Second Largest Mall

    by Hanau93 Written May 5, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I have to admit this is my favourite mall as it has everything you need without being too big and redundant like West Ed. Londonderry Mall was renovated in 1992 and is easy to navigate through whereas before things were a tad maze like..it houses stores such as the BAY, Winners, Army and Navy, Sport Chek, Save On Foods etc
