West Edmonton Mall (WEM), located in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, is the largest shopping mall in North America and the tenth largest in the world (along with The Dubai Mall) by gross leasable area.  The mall was founded by the Ghermezian brothers, who immigrated from Iran in 1959.  It was the world's largest mall until 2004.

West Edmonton Mall covers a gross area of about 490,000 m2 (5,300,000 sq ft).  There are over 800 stores and services and parking for more than 20,000 vehicles.  More than 24,000 people are employed at the property.  The mall receives 32.2 million visitors per year; it also attracts between 90,000 and 200,000 shoppers daily, depending on the day and season.  The mall was valued at CAN$926 million in January 2007.

Because of the weather, inside shopping is of great interest in Edmonton.  The mall offers many theaters, amusements, and restaurants as well as shopping.  For a short period I stayed at the Fantasy Land Hotel.  The inside conditions were excellent for walking in the winter.
