MY DAY AT ERIN MILLS TOWN CENTRE

I took a drive to Mississauga today to check out the mall Erin Mills Town Centre.

This mall is great because it is not massive. It won’t take you three hours just to walk through the mall. It’s a smaller mall and easy to navigate. For a family trip to the mall that is all you can ask.

Besides the cozy and clean vibe, my favourite part of the mall was The Walmart! I’ve never been to a mall with Walmart before and I think it’s brilliant.
The store has two levels. The main floor is stocked with all of your grocery needs and the top floor has toys, baby accessories, clothes, shoes, entertainment, and more.

I was able to shop the mall and end up grabbing some groceries for my house.

I had a great experience and I would go back!
