Because West Edmonton Mall Toyota is a locally owned and operated business, we get excited about supporting other local businesses right here in the community. We were even more excited to learn how many small businesses were right beside us in West Edmonton Mall!
If you’re like us and love supporting small businesses, then this blog post is for you. Here is a list of some of our favourite storefronts that sell local products right inside WEM. With everything from jewelry to clothing, wine, flowers, baking and more — there is literally something for everyone.
Most of the staff at West Edmonton Mall are proud Edmontonions. So, a brand that sells merchandise made by Edmontonians and then puts part of the profits back into the community? We are here for it!
Seven80 offers a variety of local products including a men’s underwear line that donates a pair to a local charity with every one sold. They also house a ton of Edmonton Oilers fan gear including a ‘McJesus Take The Wheel’ t-shirt — perfect for playoff season. Rep your northside Edmonton pride with a hoodie or coffee mug or rock some Alberta Beef socks.
Find Seven80 in Phase 1.
We love a business with history and with 20 years of local service under their belt, the team at Prestige Jewellers have become some of the best local jewellers in Edmonton. Their primary location is in Phase 1 in WEM but they also have another storefront in Fort McMurray.
Next to buying a new house or a new Toyota (wink wink), purchasing an engagement ring or special piece of jewelry is one of the biggest expenses you can make. You want a team of professionals working for you that understands the quality of the products and can help you find exactly what you’re looking for.
We have seen firsthand the team at Prestige Jewelers can do just that and we could not recommend them enough!
Our staff loves swinging by Ayco Bakery during break time and picking up some of their fresh house-made pastries. Located in Phase 1 in WEM, this premium bakery uses locally sourced ingredients to make all their goods daily. They offer everything from coffee and tea to chocolate shakes, doughnuts, pastries and more. They also have a ton of vegan options!
Our Recommendation: The Cruffin is a croissant and a muffin combined and we gotta say… it tastes like a little piece of heaven. Pair it with a London Fog or Iced Americano and head into the mall fully caffeinated, and ready to get your shopping done. Ayco Bakery is also available on UberEats!
It always feels better sporting an outfit knowing it was made by local designers. The Skinny can help with that.
Their line of on-trend women’s and children’s fashion includes brands that are unique to Edmonton including a signature cardigan that is one-size-fits-all and restocked often. They also have a monthly book club and personal styling that can be scheduled through their online booking tool.

Aligra Wine & Spirits

Aligra is located in Phase 4 and as the only liquor store inside WEM they also offer Curbside Pickup to make things even easier for their guests.

If you’ve walked by Fleurs Flowers on Europa Boulevard, you would know it. Their grass wall display is hard to miss and so are their beautiful floral arrangements just past the window.
Locally owned and operated, Fleurs Flowers is your go-to Edmonton flower experts. They do everything from small bouquets for special occasions to helping curate large custom arrangements for weddings and events.
They also sell a selection of products including candles and candle holders. They even offer subscriptions so you can always have a fresh display of flowers in your home. Did we mention they deliver within Edmonton?
