Hot Shopping: Scene in the City: Spirited Downtown

The long-awaited return of the NHL has brought new life to Winnipeg’s downtown shopping scene.

Steeped in history, The Bay at the intersection of Portage Avenue and Memorial Boulevard sells designer fashions, furnishings and cosmetics. Face east, and let your nose lead you across Vaughn Street to Perfume Paradise, where hundreds of popular, rare and even discontinued fragrances stock shelves. At Portage Place, head upstairs to Argento World of Silver to peruse beautifully hammered sterling silver jewellery. The Winnipeg Jets are back, baby, and Jets Gear has team merchandise for every fan. Take the skywalk from Portage Place to the MTS Centre to pick up a pint-sized souvenir (pictured). Walk a block east on Graham Avenue to Millennium Library to find clever literary themed accessories and objects at Best of Friends Gift Shop.
