Boutiques & Malls Reviews

"The Mall" is this mystical place where every teenage dream comes true:  meeting friends at The Mall, seeing a movie with a new boyfriend at The Mall, shopping for prom dresses at The Mall... One-stop shopping is only one of the many reasons we're drawn to these indoor and outdoor modern-day bazaars like moths to the flame.

As much as we love the reliability of finding our favourite brands on the ubiquitous mall directory boards, other shopping aficionados live for the hunt of the next great boutique.  Independent hat makers, curated dress boutiques, and only-found-here lingerie locales are the treasures that tempt these supporters of the local economy.  Expense, justified.

Bath & Body Works
This is my happy place. I have spent thousands in this store lol. I have soaps and candles and wallflowers! My husband cringes when I go to the mall because I always come home with B and B bags. The store is so beautifully organized and so visually appealing! Luv!

Sephora
I have bought a few things from Sephora but it's not a regular stop as the prices are a little above my budget. The staff are great and very friendly in all the locations I've been to. I bought some makeup when I was getting married and the lovely girl who helped me with shades...

Winners
I love winner's! They have a great selection and the prices are pretty decent. I go to winner's at least once a week, even just to look around and see what's new. Sometimes, I'll drive to different winner's to see what different stores offer, which is a pain, but not awful...

Dollarama
Used to shop here all the time but now find it's not worth it. The prices have gone up so much that I might as well go to Walmart and get a better product for the same price.

H&M
H&M;is definitely a hit-or-miss store. Some days you'll walk in and find 10 cute items and other days nothing will peak your interest. However, when you do find items you like, they are often reasonably priced. Overall, you get what you pay for. The garments are not the best...

LUSH Fresh Handmade Cosmetics
Best bombs on the planet! When I buy a few, I set the bag in my bathroom, the yummy fragrance lingers for days! They are a great treat for me after a long week! They fizz, whirl, moisturize! I like to buy them as gifts as well. I scored this year! Went online Boxing Day...many...

Forever 21
To be honest, I don't really like going into Forever21 stores. I find that there is way too many things to look at, and can be quite overwhelming. I do, however really enjoy shopping on their online store. It's a lot easier to browse and find what I am looking for. It's also...

Ikea Canada
Almost every single piece of furniture in my room is from ikea, with a few exceptions, my makeup desk is one of my best purchases from there, i find everything fairly priced and when building items the instructions can sometimes be a little confusing but we always figure it out...

Old Navy Stores
I just recently started shopping at Old Navy when I was looking for jeans. I could never find jeans that were medium to high rise in skinny jeans. I happened upon Old Navy when shopping with my husband at the mall. There was a 35% off sale on jeans. We decided to check it out...

Victoria's Secret Stores
This is one of my favourite stores. It has everything from fragrances and lotions to bags and books to shoes and a large variety of clothing (fashion). It is super expensive there to buy anything, but it is well worth it to have any of the products

Joe Fresh
we just got joe fresh in our superstore about 2 years ago. I do like the product, but some clothing seems very cheaply made so you have to watch what you buy. But there is usually clearance racks i like to browse at

Groupon
I have purchased a couple groupons and I have discovered why they are selling their product/service at a discount. Most that I have redeemed I have had to fight to get an appointment. Other times the services were either in super awkward locations or just overall terrible...

The Children's Place
Great clothes at this shop! I find the sizes tend to run small so I buy a size up for my son. The new stuff is cute but quite pricey so I tend to only shop the sales and clearance stuff. Online they have great sales/clearance (especially at the end of a season) and a good chunk...

DYNAMITE FASHION STORE
Dynamite is one of my favorite stores. They have casual and formal attire. Great prices for most items too. Trendy clothing and accessories. Decent quality too! Most of my items hold up pretty well in the wash.

SoftMoc
My fav moccassins are Soft Moc! Great quality and if you hit a sale so worth it! I love online ordering they always ship to home free! They have A ton of great selection. Trick is to wait till end of season for sales

Claire's Accessories
I have never been a huge fan of Claire's accessories. I find a lot of the merchandise very cheap looking and certainly over priced for what you get. This is a store for teenagers... and teens are usually the ones providing the service there. All around unappealing to me.

Walmart store
My family gets most of our groceries at Walmart. You cant beat the prices, especially when there are sales. We dont get meat or produce too often since theres a local shop that has way better quality and priced meat and veggies. Baby food/formula are defintely priced the best...

David's Tea Thunder Bay Ontario
I worked in the mall for 3 years and went to this store almost every day for my last year there. I love the atmosphere and most of the staff. I have an extensive collection of their teas at home, more than anyone could ever drink ;) I love DavidsTea!

Michaels crafts
I could lose myself for an entire day in Michaels. I absolutely love this store! Firstly, I agree, the prices are pretty steep, but when you subscribe to their emails, they are always sending weekly coupons for the store: some of the times there will be 50% off coupons, or 20%...
