Still shopping for Christmas? Get it all and more in the Glebe
You don’t have to look at a calendar to know it’s Christmas in the Glebe.
A quick strut down Bank Street will give you that warm holiday feeling, with Christmas lights illuminating the streets, holiday décor adorning Glebe storefronts and in-store displays reminding you of the most wonderful time of the year.
And if you haven’t crossed everything off your list yet, head to the Glebe and get your shop on. The Neighbourhood’s pedestrian-friendly main street makes bouncing from shop to shop a breeze – whether your exploring Bank Street’s ma and pa shops, specialty shops on our side streets or big box stores at Lansdowne, you can get everyone crossed off your list without even having to think about shopping in a mall.
The Glebe truly has something for everyone.
Sport enthusiasts can get running, winter and skiing gear at our three major sports stores, while those scoping out electronics can get plugged in at gadget stores throughout the neighbourhood.
Hosting a holiday party? Bulk up on booze at one of the Glebe’s four liquor shops – everything from fine wine to Pabst Blue Ribbon if you’re really classing it up. Grab all the snacks you need at our four Glebe grocery stores, or slice some prime cuts from our local butcher shop. Check out our Bank Street kitchen shops as well and ensure you have all the right equipment to make your meal a success.
Heading to that holiday party? You’ll want to get all dolled up to impress. There is loads of shopping in the Glebe, from men’s specialty stores to ladies’ fashion shops that will have you looking your best. You might as well get your hair done while you’re at it. The Glebe has a whopping 14 salons and barbers to get your hair done.
Going out for dinner? The Glebe has close to 60 restaurants to chose from over the holidays – everything from fine Italian, British and Canadian Fare, along with Asian, Mexican, and Indian, among others. You’ll find all the java you need at one of our dozen cafes along Bank Street or at Lansdowne Park if you’re looking to wake up a bit before you shop.
Looking for toys for the kids? You’ll find one of the city’s best toy shops in the city right in the heart of the Glebe and one of the top record stores in the city for those vinyl heads on your list.
You can spend a full day in the Glebe and hit one of the handfuls of relaxing spas in the area – then catch a bite and a flick at Lansdowne before shopping for new boots at one of our footwear stores.
Need a prescription? We have pharmacies too – along with pet stores, jewellery stores, and everything else you need.
Plus, if you’re a Glebe Spree shopper, all of these purchases will give you enough stamps for a good chance at winning a $10,000 shopping spree to spend at your favourite Glebe store.
Head to the Glebe for all your Christmas and holiday needs.
