“SHOP TILL YOU DROP ;-)”
Reviewed 30 December 2013 via mobile

Its a lovely shopping centre with all the shops you'll need. Its got the really expensive shops as well as quirky ones as well as your usual shops. I could spend all day shopping in between the coffee and lunch breaks on level 4 in the food court or in the garden. Really worth a visit if you're a shopper !

“Nice Urban Spot”
Reviewed 14 June 2013

I'm always a bit surprised to find this busy hub in the middle of Calgary's business district. If you are wanting high-end shopping, Hermes, Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Prada, Gucci, and Tiffany all have boutiques inside Holt Renfrew. The shopping centre itself is unique and looks brand new, its stacked on four levels covered with a huge glass ceiling and an indoor garden on the top level. Has all of the staple stores and a few more uppity ones if your wanting to splurge. Huge Brooks Brothers, Hudson's Bay and H&M stores. Free parking on weekends is a nice touch at the underground parkade. Could do with a few more big name retailers (no Apple Store yet), but there's lots of stores under construction at the moment. Highly recommend a visit. Tip - if you take a cab or ask someone for directions, ask them where "TD Square" is, which is the name most locals know the mall by.

“At a Loose End”
Reviewed 31 May 2013

Being stuck in Calgary for two days was to say the least a daunting prospect. There is not very much to do there. We stumbled upon the Core and Wow!!!!! The idea of linking all the sky scraper office buildings together with a shopping mall and the Skywalk is fantastic. Architecturally it is a bright, light filled atrium with three floors of shops, a further floor of food outlets and a stunning indoor 'roof garden'. We spent a whole day just wandering around amidst the hundreds of office workers going about their day. Great shops. The food court is spotlessly clean and an amazing choice of foods from New York Fries to fresh fruit yogurt! High Security presence everywhere making one feel very at ease. Great place.
