There is so much to love about the newly expanded CF Rideau Centre, I hardly know where to begin. From its stunning design to all the new shops, it has truly become a state of the art shopping oasis. The designers outdid themselves with ingenious creativity. Texture, colours, strategic lighting, the feel of open space, and marble floors; all synchronized to create an inviting experience that speaks to all your senses. It’s more than a shopping centre – it’s where you can rendez-vous with your creativity, letting your flare for fashion shine.
Longtime coveted brands such as Anthropologie, Simons, and Massimo Dutti have made their home at CF Rideau Centre this year and I couldn’t be happier about it. As a home decor maven, I am over the moon about the arrival of Anthropologie in Ottawa and can seriously spend hours in their dreamy boutique.
Now, more than ever, a shopping trip to downtown Ottawa wouldn’t be complete without a visit to CF Rideau Centre.
The buzz created on August 10th, 2016 at the big reveal of the beautiful addition to the shopping centre has yet to die down. Two months later, we’re still talking about all the fabulous new stores now available and how fun it is to go shopping!
Along with the previously mentioned brands, we welcomed a plethora of other new additions to CF Rideau Centre – flagship H&M, Alex & Ani, Lole, Frank + Oak, Strellson, Squish, L’Intervalle, Bridgehead, Rudsak, and Emilio Guido, among others. It’s enough to make your head spin (in a good way).
And not only are there new stores, there are more grandiose versions of our favourite ones. Both Zara and Roots relocated to the new sector of CF Rideau Centre with expanded floor space and an even greater selection. Fashionistas rejoice!
If you haven’t experienced the glamorous adventure of exploring the CF Rideau Centre expansion, you’re in for a treat! Slip on your fave shopping shoes, grab a friend and make a day of it – you won’t be disappointed – promise!
Honestly, you could spend a day in the two-level Simons department store alone.
