Vancouver Travel Guide

Vancouver Shopping

Shopping in Vancouver ensures a diverse range of products and quality, with everything from haute couture to laid-back flannels, as well as jewellery and home accessories available in malls and shopping areas throughout the city.

Commercial Drive is known as ''Little Italy'' and has very trendy boutiques, while Davie Village in the West End is home to great bookshops. Chinatown, encompassing Main Street and Keefer, trades in ginseng, green tea, silks and exotic fresh produce; there are weekend night markets here in summer. Another Main Street also offers a wide selection of antique and home accessory shops. Granville Island Market sells fresh produce, meats, fish and baked goods, and there are a diverse range of shops, stalls and galleries in the area.

Downtown Vancouver and Gastown have shops offering high fashion, jewellery, shoes and home wares. The Sinclair Centre has upmarket fashion and art shops, Royal Centre is made up of a variety of underground shops and the Pacific Centre is home to the famous Holt Renfrew shop. Nearby Water Street is home to art galleries, antique shops and native art stores, as well as souvenirs in the many speciality shops. Note that a Goods and Services Tax is levied on most things, but Canada no longer offers a refund scheme.
