BEYOND SHOPPING: MAKING LASTING MEMORIES AT CF RIDEAU CENTRE #RIDEAUSTYLE

There is one place in the city that, aside from our own home and my corporate office, I spent a lot of time at. Me and thousands of other people walk through its doors every day and for as long as I can remember, this place has been an important institution in the landscape of this town and it has been part of many people’s lives, including mine.

To many, it has been arguably the ultimate shopping destination in the national capital and it’s easy to see why. It’s the hub of transport and commute and it’s fantastically located right at the core of downtown, only minutes away from the majestic Parliament Hill and it is right in the hustle and bustle of the many other businesses, offices, restaurants, hotels and tourist landmarks around it.

Just think about how many parents and new students spent hours on back to school shopping at CF Rideau Centre. Or mothers and daughters hopping from store to store looking for the perfect prom dress. How many students have spent immeasurable amount of hours studying at Starbucks or Second Cup or Bridgehead, trying to catch some Wi-Fi (Did you know that #wifi services are actually available all over the mall now – for FREE?) and drafting their essays or working on their group projects.

For me… for many, many years, CF Rideau Centre has been part of our everyday. I work there and I work-out there. In fact, I used to teach right there at the GoodLife Fitness in the basement of CF Rideau Centre for almost 10 years!

I meet old friends there and I make new ones there. I’ve made so many lasting memories at CF Rideau Centre and I suspect, I’ll be making more new ones. Especially with the massive new expansion comes more possibilities.
