  I beckon you....
by cybercutie

This is the wonderland mall of Calgary. Ever since it was renovated a few year sago, it has become the paradise for Calgarian shopoholics. Just a few of the hundreds of stores include Old Navy, The Bay, Gap, Sears, Sport Chek, American Eagle, Payless, Zellers, Chapters, Esprit, Banana Republic, Club Monaco, and Shoppers Drug Mart.

As well, the Mall has everything to tempt your palate...a huge food fair including Dairy Queen,Opa, A&W, Arby's, New York Fries, Chinese food, Italian and Sushi, plus dine-in restaurants such as Eastside Marios and Moxies. Also, in the food fair, you can eat while your kids go for a ride on the merry go round! (word to the wise, let them ride this before eating or you may have wasted $10 on their meal).

The piece de resistance is the huge movie theatre located in the mall, where you can see all the movies you want for only $16 each person! Plus $20 for popcorn and pop...expensive, but well worth it if you want to see your favorite flick on a mega screen.

What to buy: During Stampede, the ultimate purchase is the perfect fitting cowboy hat, however after the 10 day extravaganza, they usually end up in the back of your closet.

There are quite a few cool jewelry shops, and since the weather is always changing around here, you can never have enough clothes...which is why the all-season clothing shops are a cash cow.

What to pay: Depends on what you want to buy...for clothes, the prices can range anywhere from $10 for a tank top (Old Navy) to $1000 or more for a dress (fancy boutiques)
