“A nice shopping centre, but...”
Review of Southcentre Mall

Southcentre Mall
Ranked #75 of 311 things to do in Calgary
Attraction details
Reviewed November 9, 2013

Southcentre is probably the nicest shopping centre in Calgary (from someone who hates shopping), however, the proliferation of lingerie shops with pictures of scantily clad women is a bit tiresome. There is one in the concourse area that looks more like a bordello than a shop for women. Advertising for bras visible to the mall that says "Push it up, push it up hard" is suggestive and disgusting. No wonder women think they must have perfect bodies to have any worth in this world.

I love this Mall, and in my opinion it is the best in the city, for many reasons. Here are the reasons its my favourite.
Five-star-hotel-quality
reception area ( Very cool customer service area, very upscale)
Kids Concierge
Complimentary kids strollers
3 Kids play areas
Community room
Courtesy phone and computer
Coat and parcel check
Free wifi ( No weird logins needed)
Sports Zone seating area to watch games( think like a mini theatre but in the mall)
Lots of nice seating areas
Very upscale washrooms ( see the pic I posted).
Spacious food court

A few years back Southcentre began to renovate to create a more comfortable shopping experience, and I would have to say they succeeded. They have created alot of nice seating areas to stop and rest, and all of the furnishings are plush and modern. Clearly a cool designer was involved in the revamp. It never feels crazy like Chinook and there is always lots of parking.
They have the cities only Crate and Barrel, Disney Store and Restoration Hardware. In addition they have all the standard good shops like Banana Republic, Gap, AE, etc....
If you want to get groceries there is a Safeway right there too.
Do yourself a favour, skip Chinook one weekend and check out SouthCentre, its worth a second look. Although I would like to keep this great Mall to myself, in the spirit of Yelp, I'll share it with ya'll ;)

South Centre Mall will present you with a classy shopping experience. There is a variety of stores - from the beautiful interior Restoration Hardware and Crate and Barrel to American Eagle and R&W. Kids are never bored - many children clothing and toy stores are located across the mall. Also check out the kids play areas. It also has the two main anchors - Sears and The Bay. The food court has a variety of outlets with many independent vendors that serve more organic fresh foods. There are also major restaurants on the property. In addition Safeway is located about 150m from te main entrance.

The mall decor is beautiful and has recently been upgraded.

I visit the mall on a regular basis and people are always curtious and respectful. Its never crowded, so you could shop without people bumping against you.

Access to the mall is e say with parking all around and entrances abound.

Visit this mall - you'll love it!
