You never know what treasures you'll find when you shop in Red Deer!


Located halfway between Calgary and Edmonton, Red Deer is a vibrant city with sprawling green space, lively entertainment, and countless shopping destinations!


Here at Ayre & Oxford, we love shopping in Red Deer and we want to share our favourite retailers with you.


Bower Place, a large shopping mall in Red Deer, is just 5 minutes from our Westview Manor Apartments and offers over 120 stores and plenty of family activities and events. Every day there is a fitness walk anyone can join, and there are cool seasonal activities like Safari Jeff's 2018 Animalogy Tour the weekend before Halloween, and The Great Indoors Trick-or-Treating happening Halloween evening.


It's worth the 15-minute drive to Parkland Mall! Once the city's first regional shopping mall, Parkland has expanded and renovated to become a modern and relaxed environment. There are over 100 stores including Walmart, Winners, and Staples. The Bear House, where kids can create their own plush toys, is a kid-favourite; and Tinkers Nook is the best place to find unique gifts.


When looking for locally owned and operated businesses for holiday or personal shopping, downtown Red Deer is our first stop. There are over 400 shops and services available downtown, with some of our favourites being 53rd Street Music, Chronicles Comics + Café, Housewarmings, and Country Cupboard.


Large department stores like Bed Bath & Beyond, Sport Chek, Home Depot, PetSmart, and The Brick are conveniently grouped together at Gaetz Avenue and 19 Street. There are also lots of smaller scale stores and many services there as well.
