Last Year/This Year: Holiday Shopping

Last Year:

You faced the crowds (and tourists) at West Edmonton Mall.

This Year:

Make shopping for Christmas gifts an enjoyable event by visiting Edmonton's quirky and quaint districts such as 124th and High Street, 104th Street Promenade, and Whyte Avenue. 

Filled with unique boutiques, local shops and restaurants, not to mention some charming architecture, these areas (and many more around the city) will bring you as much joy as the people you're shopping for! 

A few City and Dale picks for holiday gifts:

Lux Beauty BoutiqueCloud Nine Pajamas and Carol's Quality Sweets on High Street.

Headcase Hats and Henry's Purveyor of Fine Things on 124th Street.

Coup, Carbon and deVine Wines on 104th Street.

Bamboo Ballroom, My Filosophy, Coney Island Candy and Cally's Teas on Whyte Ave.
