Shopping Downtown

Looking to indulge in some retail therapy? With some of the finest shopping available in Canada, Winnipeg is just the right place to indulge. Start your tour with a private fashion show at the gorgeous flagship of Nygård International, Canada’s most widely recognized fashion house that designs leading brands of prêt-à-porter apparel for women. After the show, enjoy a fashion consultation with one of Nygård’s experts and find the shapes, colours and textiles that flatter you most, to have you feeling like you just walked off the runway yourself. Following your consultation, you will have time to browse the racks and apply your new-found fashion knowledge or experiment and create a new style of your own.

Continue your tour to one of Winnipeg’s trendiest shopping districts, Osborne Village. Boho and artsy meet kitsch and cool in the creative community of Osborne Village, where early 1900s architecture stands alongside modern high-rises, housing a mix of young and old, hip and urban. With a spirit born out of the 60s, the Village is home to an incredible variety of shops, restaurants and galleries – all concentrated within six city blocks. Here you’ll find specialty cookware, hand-crafted artisan jewellery, up-and-coming designer apparel and accessories, unique giftware and much more.

If you plan to shop until you drop, an additional lunch option at a great local restaurant is available for this tour.

Please note that many other shopping options are available. Winnipeg is a city that boasts a full range of factory outlets, anchor stores (including Canada’s largest Ikea store) and shopping malls for deal hunters and brand-seekers, as well as multiple shopping districts with individual boutiques, fashion ateliers and antique shops for those people looking for something unique. We would be more than happy to customize an itinerary to make your retail therapy session as pleasant an experience as possible.
