Our Favourite Store – Chapters Indigo

5 Flares 5 Flares ×

It really is no secret.

Every time our family heads off to the big city (Halifax) I make sure that we spend some time in Chapters.  Our closest store is an hour away, so it really is a special treat when we get to shop there.  It is so much more than a book store!  Though don’t be fooled, you’ll find the just about any book you’re looking for in there amongst the shelves and tables full of beautiful books…and you’ll likely find a few you weren’t looking for as well.

I wish we had one where I lived.  I think I would escape far more often to a quiet corner of the store to read or work.  Enjoy a hot coffee and wifi.

My trips to the city, and ultimately Chapters Indigo, are usually when I’m gift shopping.  Birthdays and holidays are big with my family.  We love to give gifts that will be loved for years, and held on to.  This is part of the reason why Chapters is such an exciting shopping experience for me.  They carry everything from toys, books and so many lifestyle items.  I get lost in there… And so do my kids.

Yes, the best part of the Chapters experience is the toy area.  If you have spent time in a Chapters store with your kids, you already know what I’m talking about.  If not, the next time you happen to drive by one…stop in, check it out.  There are tables full of toys, crafts, blocks…and a very large amount of floor space dedicated to children.  They will love going to Chapters just as much as you do!

Chapters LegoWhile you are perusing the shelves at Chapters, if Easter shopping is on your list, check out their Lego section.  Until March 31st Chapters is offering 20% off all their Lego, including Lego Duplo!  We adore all things Lego here, and is on our lists for every gift giving day.  Especially on a sugar filled holiday like Easter, we try our best to minimize the sugar intake.  20% off is a fantastic deal, and a great time to stock up on some birthday gifts for those last-minute birthday party invitations as well!

Are you a Chapters fan?  What is your favourite thing to do when you get to escape to their shelves full of other worlds and adventure?

  3. The Easter bunny brings activities to our house, and a little candy too. These activities are sometimes movies, or spring toys to play outside. I think he will also be bringing some stylish sun hats for my two-year old’s basket this year.

  4. Nathalie Ladouceur says:

    For Easter, we as a family go to church Good Friday, have a nice meal and the Saturday decorate eggs and the house for the Easter bunny. Sunday is family time, where we get together with the grandparents and tell stories about the great things that have happened over the past year while enjoying a little bit of chocolate too ;)
