Shopping Tip for Tourists - Bayers Lake Shopping District


For those who are planning a shopping trip in the Bayers Lake shopping district, please make note that 90% of the stores are closed at 6:00 on a Saturday night.

Having sat in the parking lot and witnessed at least 5 carloads of very upset people park (including me as I forgot!) and then walk to stores at 7:00 last night, only to find the doors were locked, I felt it was important to let people know so they can make their shopping plans accordingly.

Here is a list of the shopping available in this area (lots of great stores!). There are only a handful open until 9:00 on Saturday nights including Walmart, Winners, Future Shop, Roots and a few others. Most if not all of the womens clothing stores are closed at 6:00 so it would be a better choice to shop here in the afternoon and then head for Halifax Shopping Center or Mic Mac Mall for evening shopping. Restaurants in Bayers Lake are still open in the evenings.


Enjoy your shopping trip!

Dartmouth Crossing shops are open until 9 PM on Saturdays. Better shopping in any case. More compact and more in tune with shoppers needs. Entertainment in a common area and lots of activities through out the summer.
