  • 3. Pacific Centre

    So Pacific Center has undergone a MAJOR facelift this summer. The Holt Renfrew store (high-end designer goods) has tripled in size and contrary to other reviews is extremely welcoming and friendly –...

  • 4. Granville Street (downtown)

    They claim to be the largest used CD store in Canada. They certainly do have a lot of stock. The store is spacious and bright and the stock is arranged thoughtfully. For example, for rock there are...

  • 5. Downtown Vancouver

    I have been coming to Scratch for longer than I could probably remember. Scratch is the place to go for albums and artists you would not find at the bigger music stores, but be prepared to pay...

    This is the strangest, and most unique market I've ever been to. The products were very different, than anything I've seen before, which really sparked my interest. The official name of this store is,...

  • 9. City Square

    City Square is a fairly exclusive mall situated in the center of Vancouver. It has a variety of shops and is a nice place to stop in for a coffee and dessert. They offer free wireless Internet: ...

  • 10. Kitsilano

    Across the Burrard Street Bridge from downtown is Kitsilano. In addition to having (probably) the best beach in Vancouver, Kits also has some good shopping on 4th Avenue (as well as on 9th Avenue,...

  • 11. Main Street

    Honestly the punjabi market is a huge let down. I remember taking my parents there when we first moved to vanc. There are very few stores, especially Fabric and clothes stores, the food stores aren't...

  • 12. IKEA

    This IKEA is the largest one in Canada...and I love shopping here! Sometimes I find something ... sometimes I don't, BUT it's still fun to browse through all the different "rooms" IKEA has set up to...

  • 13. MEC - Mountain Equipment Co-Op

    MEC is a cooperative, that is, you have to be a member to shop here. But that's worth it -the 5 CAD membership fee - even for a one-time visit if you are set to gear up for the trip into the wilds,...

  • 14. A&B Sound

    The rest of the reviews in this category, concerning A&B Sound, were correct for the dates they were written. Last year, A&B Sound ceased to be a family business, when Future Shop bought the business...

  • 15. Asian shopping centres

    Outside of Chinatown, there are quite a few suburban Asian malls that carry goods direct from Asia. No 3 Road in Richmond and The Crystal Mall in Burnaby is lined with several of these malls, which...

  • 16. Richmond Centre

    OK, so this is smaller than Metropolis at Metrotown, but you can still find a good range of shops here (there's 240 stores and services), and the good thing about this place is that it's all located...

    "Chapters" is a big Canadian book chain somewhat comparable to Barnes and Nobles. They have a good selection of Canadian literature and history - which made this a "must see" on my recent trip to...

  • 20. London Drugs

    Don't be fooled by its name, London Drugs is much more than a drug store! It's more like a small department store. It has a little something for everyone. It's a favourite of Vancouverites because...

  • 21. Book Warehouse

    Long before there was Book Warehouse. When I was a kid this place served as my one & only spot for buying Christmas gifts. My parents and uncles were always good at feigning surprise about...
