Centre Village Mall
Once on the city's top malls, popularity dwindled when major retailers left.

Save-On Foods grocery store and Blockbuster are in the same vicinity.

Lethbridge Centre
Lethbridge Centre is one of the city's major malls.  Supported mainly by the Bay, the mall also contains various independent and major retailers.  On those bitter cold or windy days the underground parkade is terrific.
