We’ve arranged this guide by location, starting in the core of Grande Prairie and heading outwards.
Grande Prairie’s downtown core offers a diverse selection of local gems alongside larger chains. It’s easily walkable and a great place to simply explore, but if you’re looking for something specific, you can find a handy list of businesses and their locations here.
Fashionista Ladies Wear – A locally-owned business offering a stylish range of clothes and accessories from trusted brands in sizes 2-22, Fashionista promises every customer an unparalleled fashion experience.
Just Beachy – Just Beachy offers much more than the swimwear their name might suggest, with an impressive selection of summer sports-related apparel for kids, women, and men.
The Prairie Mall is the largest indoor shopping centre north of Edmonton, with a significant expansion in 2017 having increased the number of retailers. Today, you can find a wide array of shops and restaurants catering to practically every need, including newer additions such as Lululemon and Urban Planet – check out a full directory here.
Keddie’s Tack & Western Wear – One block north of the mall, you’ll find local institution Keddie’s, who have all the gear needed to kit you out like an authentic cowboy in no time. They’ve proudly served the region for almost 50 years and practice friendly “old-fashioned” customer service. Be sure to mosey on by here before heading out to the annual Stompede!
