Cross Iron mills mall is a huge shopping mall located in northern Calgary in Alberta Canada, towards
the city of Airdrie. It has 100 outlets and 200 stores. Recently I spent a
weekend in Airdrie with my family and we enjoyed a shopping trip at Crossiron
mills mall. This is my review on the shopping center and my experience shopping there.
One afternoon, myself and my family decided to do a bit of exploring and go on a shopping trip in the northern Calgary. We were looking for a good mall around near our community where we could find some nice deals and good quality clothing.
So we drove from south-west Calgary to Cross Iron Mills Mall and the journey took about 40 minutes. It was a rainy day but as all eager-shoppers know, that doesn't really matter when you are inside a shopping mall! Some even say that it is better to go shopping when its raining and save the sunshine for when you've got outdoor plans. The shopping center was bigger than I had imagined and I was quite pleased with the selection of shops available.
This is what I enjoyed about the shopping mall:
Going to Crossiron Mills Mall was a brilliant shopping experience for me, one of the best I've had in Calgary. I don't think you could easily get bored shopping there as there as so many shops to visit.
I think there is a nice range of shops to suit every customer need, I mostly visited the women's fashion shops and there were a great range of products that appealed to me and there were also quite a few sales available.
At Crossiron Mills Mall you can find shops for casual everyday wear and also for more formal dress clothes. The store we did the most garment shopping in was Laura. I wanted to purchase some decent smart dresses, tops and skirts and there was plenty on offer. It was actually my first time shopping at Laura, and I very much enjoyed it. The nice thing too was that we were able to get the Laura privilege membership card and save 10% on everything, same day.
I instantly fell in love with the Arnold Churgin Outlet (again my first) time. There was a great selection of so many stylish shoes, that as soon as I walked in I felt contented and happy. The shoes were quite pricey, but for the quality- totally worth it. I purchased a beautiful pair of Jessica Simpson black stilettos that were surprisingly comfortable and my sister bought a nice pair of beige textured designer heels. As you can imagine we both left the shop with smiling faces!
We also went into Carlton Cards and It was amusing and quite pleasant to look through the wide selection of cards for every occasion that they had. We were able to make use of a good deal that was on, we were able to purchased a number of cards (about 6) and got 3 for free which was good.
Of course we went in and out of many different shops, (although only a small fraction of the amount of stores at Crossiron Mills Mall) but those were the highlights for me.
Another thing I liked about the mall was the fact that although there were lots of people shopping, the stores never felt too crowded, especially considering that I was there on a Saturday afternoon, which is normally rush hour.
The food court at Crossiron Mills Mall was brilliant. There were so many places to choose to have our meal at. You can find the restaurants available in the mall, in my list of stores below.
Prior to visiting the stores, we started off our shopping adventure by making our way to Jugo Juice and I got a delicious and fresh banana and chocolate smoothie that energized me for my afternoon of shopping ;)
For lunch we went Teriakyi Experience and let me tell you, it was an amazing experience. I ate a marvelous hot spicy coconut kind of curry with fresh white rice.. and it was perfect. The dish also included bamboo, which was another first for me but actually quite tasty. Now I know what I must be like to be a panda, haha.
So that was how we ended our shopping trip at Crossiron Mills Mall. The weather had brightened up by the time we were done and we had a nice drive to the hotel in Airdrie where we were staying.
And that's what I love about shopping, you can have a really great time when your out and about in different stores, but the icing on the cake is when you get home and get to go through all the things that you purchase!
Coming up soon, I will be writing about my experience in the hotel in Airdrie, so look out for that.
So my friends, I would totally recommend visiting this great shopping center, Crossiron Mill Mall. I had a wonderful time there and I think its a great place for families and eager-shoppers alike, to go shopping.
So below is a list of the stores available at Crossiron Mills Mall, that you may like to look through.
Have a Great day,
