As things start to look up in North America, we can all start to look forward to returning to some of our favorite places, as well as some new destinations. Malls have opened and closed periodically over the last year or so, and it’s time to start planning your next mall trip for once they begin to re-open for what we can hope will be indefinite.
Whether you are looking to shop locally or travel domestically, there are many shopping centers you’ve never heard of. Start planning your next shopping trip with a Canadian shopping mall directory to identify various mall locations, their hours, and their list of stores.
These shopping centers all have something special to offer, whether it’s thanks to the stores, location, or entertainment.
