Whether you’re looking to purchase just the right gift or spend a fun afternoon shopping with someone special, Southcentre Mall is helping you support local businesses and helping you have a terrific Mother’s Day!
Southcentre Mall is one of Calgary’s favourite shopping destinations, connecting shoppers with the brands and experiences they crave. Throughout the year, Southcentre frequently hosts special events. They promote a variety of community initiatives and actively provide shoppers with opportunities to support local businesses.
This Mother’s Day weekend is no different. On May 6 and 7, 2022, you can join Southcentre Mall to honour and celebrate the mothers and mother figures in our lives. They are partnering with Collab YYC (local supporting local!) to host a Mother’s Day Market in Centre Court during mall hours. You’ll find the perfect hand-crafted gifts for moms, grandmas, and moms-to-be from 19 unique, local vendors. Shoppers can expect to find a locally-curated selection of goods ranging from apparel and art, to food and beverage, to home décor and jewelry. Get a sneak peek and explore the vendors here. It also makes a fun outing to shop together!
As an avid supporter of small businesses, Southcentre is dedicated to championing local entrepreneurs by providing the resources and opportunities needed for them to reach success. This support not only helps to provide businesses with exposure to new audiences, but also creates a sense of community and connection among retailers, makers, creators, and prospective shoppers, while simultaneously contributing to the local economy. As a hub for community and for business, Southcentre actively facilitates opportunities for Calgarians to build meaningful connections, develop brand awareness, and foster the spirit of entrepreneurship our city is known for.
Collab YYC opened its doors in spring of 2020 and is a locally-owned Calgary shop located in Southcentre Mall. It exclusively features Canadian-made products and helps to incubate local talent while introducing shoppers to some of the incredible products that are made right here in Calgary and throughout Canada. With over 40 vendors in-store, Collab carries a wide variety of products from Canadian artisans, ranging from bath and beauty, to ceramics and stationery, to jewelry and home décor and much more. Collab feels that collaboration is an important part of being a local maker and that working together to create locally made goods strengthens the community as a whole.
