    Hands down the best mall in the city, it's my main shopping destination since it has probably everything you need. Clean and simple design, good food court and nice movie theatres, two Starbucks one at each side of the mall! Yes parking can be busy on peak hours but that's expected with how popular the mall is! Totally recommend to anyone!

    This mall has every store imaginable in a straight line and relatively easy to find parking within a reasonable distance to any door.

    I believe in supporting local business, and I am not necessarily recommending a boycott, but this year I have noticed that Chinook Centre Mall has an obvious aversion to the true spirit of Christmas.
    You walk into the mall and what do you see — very few decorations, or other noticeable decor of the holiday season. The mall wants your business and delights in your every purchase, but the mall proper is as empty of the Christmas season as can possibly be.

I believe in supporting local business, and I am not necessarily recommending a boycott, but this year I have noticed that Chinook Centre Mall has an obvious aversion to the true spirit of Christmas.
You walk into the mall and what do you see — very few decorations, or other noticeable decor of the holiday season. The mall wants your business and delights in your every purchase, but the mall proper is as empty of the Christmas season as can possibly be. Yes, there is a children's area with Santa at one far end of the mall and yes there are 4 huge white polar bears at the other end (not that they are Christmas fair style of decorations as there is no bow or lights), and yes there is a telescope with lights in the center of the mall. however there is not a single Christmas tree or lights or garland. The stores themselves are dressed up for the season, but not the mall proper.
There is a terrible absence of the beautiful decorations that fill other shopping malls. I am expressing my displeasure! Hopefully the decision to ban Christmas is not due to multi-cultural" bias, or because of religious concerns, and I would doubt it is a financial decision.
Christmas is certainly not about the decorations or the shopping, but such a blatant omission sends a message that the mall management wants your business but does not want your religion or does not want to be a part of the festive season.
The Christmas season is a joyous time of year. I like Christmas decorations, mall Santa’s and seeing shoppers stroll around trying to find the perfect present for that special someone. I like to hear the Christmas music, and it doesn’t have to be a religious theme. There’s something almost soothing about the communal feel of Christmas. The exchange of gifts is a positive experience, kind of like trading compliments with someone. So I’m not ashamed to say I love Christmas.
I got the impression that the Chinook Centre is tired. It completely lacks the inspiring Christmas season feel that one would expect while shopping during the Christmas season. I’m not one that likes to see Christmas before Halloween, however with only 5 days to go, Chinooks effort looks rather bleek.
