Shopping in Edmonton: Whyte Avenue and Old Strathcona

For a whole different shopping experience than the typical mall or power centre, cruise over to the eclectic Old Strathcona district. Anchored by the funky, bohemian spirit of Whyte Avenue, historic buildings blend with youthful energy to make Old Strathcona one of Edmonton’s trendiest areas.

Retail Therapy

For the guys, Derks has been the go-to place for formal wear since 1939, and they have a great selection of business attire too. Old Strathcona has another store you won't find in a typical mall - a mens underwear store. The Briefing Room is dedicated to men with a huge selection of underwear, loungewear and accessories.

Unique Finds

Matching the historical vibe of the neighbourhood, the Old Strathcona Antique Mall is a huge shop with dozens of booths full of antiques and collectables. If vintage clothing tickles your fancy, check out Junque Cellar.

Locally Inspired
