    You can buy many goods here from southeast asia, vegetables, processed foods etc. I even found products from my province Pangasinan in the Philippines like the shrimp paste, variety of Dagupan bangus products and anchovies.

  • Sofia's Boutique: Favourites - Clothing Boutique (No Mall Stores)

    by iloveshopping217 Written Aug 9, 2010

    Sofia's was recommended to me by several people and I'm so glad I went. I used to shop in the malls and I ended up frustrated because there are not enough stores that suit my age bracket to make it worth my while (late forty's), also my clothes didn't look unique because everyone else was shopping in the same stores. I have been in Sofia's now more than a dozen times and every time I feel welcomed and taken care of and I leave with something sure to get compliments even from strangers. I have learned to give myself at least an hour to get a good look through the huge selection of interesting pieces. The clothes are affordable for Designer clothing and Canadian Designers, which I'm pleased about. I am the person who now recommends this store to other women. You won't be disappointed, I highly recommend this shopping establishment.

    What to buy: If you are looking for a great bra with NO UNDERWIRE they have a great one. I have one and it took a little while to get used to but now I can't wear any other bra because this one is so comfortable. They also carry Spanx which we all need from time to time. They also sell shoes in the summer and fashion boots in the winter.

    What to pay: Medium Priced. It's not inexpensive like Walmart and it's not expensive like Guess, it's in the middle. They have a layaway plan too.

    The Bay: Giant Department Store

    by crmeers Updated Mar 1, 2010

    This was one of the largest department stores I have seen in my life.
    I think it was about five levels, and the levels were all so big.
    On the second floor I believe there was actually a Sport's Hall of Fame.
    On the top floor there was a cafe.

    What to buy: I bought a Canada sweatshirt with the Olympic symbols for Vancouver.

    What to pay: $100

    St. Vital Shopping Centre: Winnipeg's Second Largest Mall

    by rdo911 Written Sep 3, 2005

    If you are in the South part of the city, check out St. Vital mall.

    First of all, you have to learn how to pronounce it -- Saint Vi-Tell.

    A mall is a mall for the most part. Although this one does have a 550 seat food court with a vaulted wooden ceiling and two 50 foot tall fireplaces. They don't call it a food court, it is called the Food Hall.

    Polo Park Shopping Centre: Largest Mall in Winnipeg

    by rdo911 Written Sep 3, 2005

    Polo Park is Winnipeg's largest shopping mall. Located on St James St. at Portage Ave. it is near the airport.

    If you need a place to pass a few hours of time before your plan leaves, this is a good choice.

    Check out The Bay for a uniquely Canadian department store.

    The Bay: Take home a unique piece of Canadian history

    by rdo911 Updated Sep 3, 2005

    The Hudson's Bay Trading Company was founded in England in 1670 and is the oldest corporation in North America. They established trade with the First Nations people of Canada and brought back to England such exotic (for the times) items as beaver and other pelts.

    Today, they have shortened the company name to just The Bay and run a chain of department stores across Canada.

    In Winnipeg the flagship store is located downtown. There are also stores located in Polo Park Shopping Centre and St. Vital Shopping Centre.

    What to buy: Sure you could get the usual plastic RCMP dolls, or maybe a beaver. But The Bay's real signature gift is the Hudson's Bay point blanket.

    The tranditional blanket colours are white with yellow, red, and green colour stripes. But, they come with several colour choices now.

    These blankets were commonly traded with First Nations traders who had beaver and other pelts to sell.

    What to pay: Expect to pay between $240-$360USD for these blankets.

    Like Youngs, it offers variety of Asian products. They even sell live crabs here. You can also buy Filipino dishes inside as well. I love their lechon and kaldereta.
