Chasing sales and discounts, we often get lost in an endless list of malls and mini shops. It’s equally hard to pick the right Outlet, because there are so many - also, not all of them have what we need. However, it’s good to know where to go without waisting time, so we decided to tell you more about two most visited Outlets in Vancouver. They probably have what you need, but to actually do the shopping at a good price you need to be well informed (preferably a good bargainer too).
Located only 20 minutes drive from downtown Vancouver, you can easily reach the McArthurGlen Designer Outlet. This fashion giant is situated at the Templeton Station, two stops before the airport. It offers more than 800 luxury, designer and premium brands including Bottega Veneta, Burberry, Gucci, Prada, Ralph Lauren and Paul Smith at up to 70 per cent off regular retail prices. The great news for all the non residentials is that the Outlet also offers 10 per cent off at the already discounted prices by Guest Services with their identification. The team of this mall is more than eager to help you in any way they can, so they have shuttle-bus service from central city locations, they can provide personal shoppers, have specially designed children’s play areas and multilingual staff at your service.
Following their website you will see they also organize interesting events during the whole year - Golf Weekends, Fashion Nights Out, Live Music, Trend Talks, Style Guides etc.
If you happen to be near Vancouver during this Easter, visit them and check out their special Easter Treats.
Less than an hour ride from Vancouver there is another great place for all the bargain lovers - Tsawwassen Mills. Some of the brands this Outlet offers are Aritzia and Forever 21, Michael Kors, Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH, Browns, Nike and many more.
This is a brand new center opened in October last year in the Lower Mainland. It includes approximately 1.2 million sq. ft. of retail with a unique mix of premium fashion brands, factory outlets and restaurants.
If you visit their website you will see very interesting part related not to shopping only: they have the Ideas section where you can read many interesting topics on fashion and style, beauty and lifestyle – how to stay chic in the office, how to clean your jewelry, tips for hair, best nail trands for this spring season, how to have versatile wardrobe etc.
If you happen to be a tourist and you spend 350$ during one day, you will be rewarded with an exclusive signature git within their Gift With Purchase Program.
Tsawwassen Mills is located 33km south of downtown Vancouver at Highway 17 and 52nd St. and will be opened during the Easter from 10am to 7pm.
