With temperatures dipping, the need to be as warm and comfortable as possible is strong, whether you spend most of your time indoors or venturing out into the fall (or winter!) chill. These stores have everything you need to create a cozy cocoon of warmth, whether it’s through outfitting your living space with enough blankets and throw pillows to build a fort or adding to your knitted scarf and toque collection.
With its long snow season, close proximity to the mountains and legions of winter sport enthusiasts, it’s no surprise that Edmonton is chock-full of great stores full of skiing and snowboarding equipment. Whether you’re looking to rent, buy new, or fix your existing equipment, these shops have everything you need to hit the slopes.
Whether you have a cold or are just feeling cold, soup is always the quickest fix. These Edmonton spots have a fantastic variety of brothy delights, ranging from Thai delicacies to homemade chicken noodle soup just like your mom made you during your childhood.
Chai tea, that heady mix of black tea and Indian spices, accompanied by cardamom, cinnamon, ground ginger, ground cloves, black peppercorns and more, is a spicy treat for the senses. Whether you drink it with steamed milk for a tasty chai latte, or forego the caffeine, you’ll find a variety of chai drinks at these Edmonton establishments.
Winter can be rough for some of us in Edmonton. But for those who enjoy winter sports, it’s a joyous time of year that should be spent outdoors as much as possible. Any winter sport fanatic will get a ton of use out of the accessories available at these stores for the most wonderfully cold time of the year.
Shopping for mom is never easy. What do you give the woman who gave you the gift of life? The trick is to get her things she wants but won’t splurge on herself. These stores make it quick and convenient to find that special Christmas present for your mom or mother-in-law.
Whether your dog needs a serious haircut, or some socializing with other canine pals, a doggie daycare and spa can be a fantastic place for your pup to pal around with other pooches. And, if you can’t take Fido with you on that trip, many daycares offer overnight boarding services, as well. These doggie daycares and spas treat Spot like a family member.
If you don’t want your dog or cat to destroy your Christmas tree, you better make sure there are some gifts for Fido and Fluffy underneath the tree. Whether you call them your fur babies or not, picking out gifts for your pets can be a fun but challenging experience – it’s not like they can exactly send Santa a wish list! These Edmonton stores sell toys and treats for your family members covered in fur.
Tacos are one of the best foods out there – messy but hearty, delicious but primal – after all, you eat them with your hands. These Edmonton establishments serve up tacos worthy of the finest taco stand you would ever find in California or Mexico.
It used to be impossible to know where your food came from unless you grew and cooked it yourself at home. But now, there are so many restaurants embracing the locavore trend that eating farm-to-fork when dining out is a breeze. These Edmonton restaurants source seasonal local ingredients whenever possible.
Does your best buddy love food above all else? Do they know the difference between java made from beans ground by hand and lesser cups of coffee? Do they consider chocolate a food group? If so, these stores offer the tastiest and loveliest gifts for your favourite foodie pal.
When you’re in desperate need of a new hairdo – whether that means a cut, colour, chemical treatment or a combination of all three – there are plenty of fabulous salons on the south side of Edmonton. Most cater to both genders and all of them have a team of talented stylists.
