Treat Yourself at Vancouver's Best Shopping Malls and Centers

Shopping in Vancouver can be found throughout the city and depending on your budget and what you're in the market for, there's something with your name on it. For every day shopping Robson Street and the Pacific Centre are great options. Here you will find familiar North American brands and a handful of shops that are unique to Vancouver. Both shopping areas are close to public transportation, restaurants and hotels, so you never have to go far for what you're looking for.

Looking for luxury? Make your way out towards Vancouver's International Airport and you'll find the McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Vancouver Airport. This outdoor shopping centre offers luxury goods at a discounted price throughout the year. From Coach and Cole Haan to Armani and Hugo Boss, there's much to choose from here.
