“je vais faire les magasins” vs “je vais magasiner”

Can someone comment on if there is a difference - ie. in meaning or maybe simply a regional or proper grammar difference of saying the same thing? Thankyou

Hi Jeff, 

This expression is not suitable for shopping, it is a business term for stocking.

Please take a look at this Larousse definition -

Bonne Continuation !
