Hey, ‘Riverdale’ Fans: Pop’s Chock’lit Shoppe is Popping Up in Vancouver

The hit TV series will be celebrating its season two premiere by bringing Riverdale's coolest hang-out spot to life (oh, and free milkshakes).

Whether you fell in love with the colourful, vintage diner from the original Archie comics or the enigmatic, dimly-lit booths from CW’s Riverdale, chances are you’ve always wanted to try a milkshake at the iconic Pop’s Chock’lit Shoppe. Well, we’ve got some good news for you. For one weekend only, fans will have the opportunity to visit the famous diner when it pops-up at numerous locations across Canada—including Vancouver’s very own Templeton diner.

Each of the diner’s pop-up locations will be decked out with Pop’s essentials to celebrate the season two premiere of Riverdale (airing October 12) and fans everywhere will have the chance to visit the famed diner and try on their favourite Riverdale costumes. The first 200 guests at each location will also get a free milkshake, but will be presented with Archie’s classic dilemma as they must choose between the Old Fashioned Vanilla (Betty) or Double Chocolate (Veronica) flavours.
