Small boutiques with one-of-a-kind items, big department stores, local artisans and high-end haute couture are what make up Vancouver’s diverse shopping experience. Whether you're looking to splurge or save some money by window shopping, each neighborhood has something special to offer.
Granville Island is one of Vancouver's most popular shopping areas for both locals and visitors. The market has just about everything you could want: fragrant fresh flowers, artisan cheeses, gourmet meals, a kids' market, art, jewelery and pretty much everything in between can be found at Granville Island.
One of Vancouver's most anticipated stores has opened its doors and locals are pretty excited about it. The much-loved department store, Nordstrom, has built itself a home in the city and it's safe to say they've got you covered. From high-end labels to three different dining options, it's easy to spend an afternoon here.
For designer goods at a fraction of the cost, make your way out to the McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Vancouver Airport. Here you'll find familiar high-end brands like Coach, Cole Haan, Hugo Boss and Armani, to name just a few, at discounted prices. Don't have a car? No sweat. The Canada Line station is just a stone's throw from the outlet so you can leave the car at home.
