Shopping and Going Out

Lethbridge – West

Most uLethbridge students end up living on the west side of Lethbridge, where the University is located. You will find several grocery stores, as well as drugstores, convenience stores, pubs, and restaurants.

Lethbridge – South

On Lethbridge’s south side, you’ll find the city’s largest concentration of shops and restaurants. Whether you're looking for a mobile phone provider, clothing, home décor, or new or used furniture, this is where you’ll be heading. Both downtown and the other main shopping areas are well connected to the west side by bus.

Lethbridge – North

On the north side, you’ll find many of the same chain stores as the south side. However, you’ll also find specialty stores and restaurants that are unique to this side of town.

Eating out consistently can be expensive and unhealthy. It is healthier and more economical to purchase groceries and prepare your own meals when possible. Try to establish a balanced diet that includes fresh, healthy, and familiar foods.

In Canada, many people buy the majority of their groceries at a supermarket. Supermarkets carry groceries, household items, and over-the-counter medications. In Lethbridge you'll find many supermarkets including Superstore, No Frills, Safeway, Save-On-Foods, Walmart and Sobeys. Some supermarkets will have lower prices than others, so you will want to balance cost with convenience and location.

Although the usual grocery stores are increasingly carrying a wider variety of products from around the world, you may want to visit a specialty store if you're looking for something special. Some of these stores also carry clothing, hair products and other non-food items.
