#1 – Chinook Centre MallCalgary Chinook Centre Mall Interior

If you are looking for the largest variety of retail shops all in one location, then Chinook Centre Mall is your best bet!

Owner Cadillac Fairview just recently completed a massive expansion project at Chinook Centre back in 2012 which added an additional 180,000 square feet of space at a cost of $277 million bucks.  It introduced a number of outlet style shops previously not found in Calgary such as Nordstrom, for example, adding even more diversity to the mall's retail portfolio.

In 2017, a new pedestrian bridge was built overtop Macleod Trail to give public transit users quick-and-easy access to the mall's second floor. This will act as a walkway between the mall and another expansion which will eventually include real estate on the east side of Macleod Trail. The future expansion is in the works and will make this mall even better than it already is!

Find Chinook Centre Mall on the corner of Macleod and Glenmore Trail SW. It's humongous and hard to miss!

Market Mall Calgary Shopping Centre#3 – Market Mall

Market Mall is another one of the best places to shop in Calgary, of which has undergone a fairly recent renovation and expansion that added more retail space to its portfolio. It happens to be one of the only single-floor shopping centres as well, so if stairs are an issue for you or a loved one it's definitely your best best.

After renovations, Market Mall's ranking on the list of best places to shop in Calgary increased considerably as it added much needed retailers and heated underground parking for visitors to use during the colder seasons.

Best Calgary shopping malls Cross Iron Mills Balzac#4 – Cross Iron Mills
