Vancouver is a good city for shopping and has stores
from several internationally known brands. The
Robson Street, one of the main roads of the
city, is like an open air mall has a lot of nice shops
and is great to hit leg, buy clothes and shoes. Another
street that also has several shopping options is
Granville Street, where there are stores like
Hudson's Bay Company (Canadian department
store) and Winners, where you can find varied products
at a good price.
The Pacific Center
shopping center is also located in the city
center, where renowned stores such as Topshop
and Sephora are located. The mall is large, closed, has
easy access to public transport and is a good choice
when it is raining. Nearby you will find London
Drugs, which is a pharmacy, but it looks more
like a supermarket, given the amount of products. This
is a good place to buy cosmetics, for example. If you are interested in retro style items, just visit
InternetAges where you can find vintage sweatshirts.
The neighborhood of Gastown, especially on Water St,
you will find several souvenir shops, with various
objects bearing the name of Canada. For varied stores,
ateliers, art pieces and other different products, visit

shops on its streets and the Public Market, a market
that sells flowers, fruits, vegetables, cold cuts,
spices and foods.

Center, a mall that has Apple stores, Hugo
Boss, Coach, GAP, etc.
CF Pacific Center
Located in the bustling heart of downtown Vancouver
is the Pacific Center, a quality shopping center that
brings together many stores. The mall is not that big,
but it has several of the popular and famous stores on

leisure program for times when it is raining, a fact not
uncommon in "Raincouver".

the train station, has a food court with varied
restaurants, free Wi-Fi and stores from brands such as
