About CrossIron Mills


Let’s talk wow factor. Because wow factor is exactly what CrossIron Mills is designed to deliver. From the moment you approach the centre, on Highway 2 just north of Calgary, it’s clear this is not your average shopping destination. At 1.4 million square feet, and 674 acres, CrossIron Mills is huge. In fact, it’s the biggest one-level shopping centre in Alberta. And whether you walk in through the larger than life Bass Pro entrance, or past any of the centre’s iconic, Alberta-themed entrance features, the approach is impressive. Every visit to CrossIron Mills feels like showtime.

CrossIron Mills was the first shopping centre of its kind in Western Canada. Developed along the Mills concept, the property offers the best features of a traditional shopping centre, the big anchor brands of a major power centre, and destination architecture and entertainment – all in one showstopping location.

With more than 200 specialty stores and premium brand outlets, and 17 large-format anchor stores, CrossIron Mills offers incredible depth, and something for every shopper. The centre is home many Alberta firsts, including Bass Pro Shops, Calvin Klein Outlet, Bed, Bath & Beyond, Pro Hockey Life, True Religion Brand Jeans Outlet, Hugo Boss Outlet, Joe Fresh, Coach Factory and Coach Men’s. The centre also has many “biggest-in-Alberta” retailers including the largest Toys ‘R’ Us, Babies ‘R’ Us, La Senza, The Children’s Place, Tommy Hilfiger Outlet, Laura Superstore and XXI Forever.

And it’s not just retail bliss. CrossIron Mills is true a hometown hero, celebrating the beauty and diversity of Alberta through arresting design features, architecture, and 6 themed neighbourhoods throughout the centre. These Alberta-centric features are tastefully inspired by the geographic regions, landmarks, and cultural icons of our home province. The neighbourhoods are all connected by unique transition courts, and culminate around a themed 1200-seat food court.

Ideally situated in Rocky View County on Hwy 2, the busiest transportation corridor in the province of Alberta, CrossIron Mills is just 7.5 km from Calgary International Airport and approximately 1.5 km north of the City of Calgary.

CrossIron Mills was built to impress, with every visit. Wow factor, indeed.
