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!

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.

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!

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 ....

The Farmers' Market comes to life every Saturday, when more than 130 vendors set up their little shops to sell garden products, arts & crafts, baked goods, meat products, preserved products and more. It's impossible to leave this place empty handed - there are so many good products and it's pretty easy to get a good deal. Open year round!

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. This place is so clean, it basically looks like a dentist office! And the staff is very professional. They'll help you make the right choice - you won't regret it!
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 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.

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!!!

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.
