Summer is speeding to a close, and it’s time to stock up for another school year. With more quality shops and services than ever before, new and improved Park Royal North makes back-to-school shopping a breeze.

New Year, New Gear

Fashionistas will love getting their back-to-school shop on at Park Royal’s newly opened SAKS Off 5th: hot-off-the-runway trends meet terrific savings on hundreds of fashion’s biggest brands at SAKS Off 5th, and top-notch customer-service experts help keep this year’s back-to-school wardrobe on trend—and on budget.

As well, perennial favourites Hudson’s Bay, The Gap, Gap Kids, and Banana Republic can outfit the whole family, head to toe, for the year ahead.

Park Royal North’s London Drugs, a longstanding one-stop-shop for all things back to school, is freshly renovated and better than ever. Whether you’re shopping for a kindergarten or a university student, London Drugs has you covered with everything from crayons and snacks to backpacks and laptops. Check out the décor aisle for finishing touches for a dorm room, a special frame for this year’s school photo, and more.

New Resolve, New Rituals

State-of-the-art fitness equipment, encouraging personal trainers, an impressive roster of group classes (including spinning), and towel service will motivate you to take your fitness to the next level at Steve Nash Sports Club, so you can scratch that back-to-school resolution of the list. With child-minding services for children from three months to 12 years old and memberships for those aged 12 and up, the whole family can get in on the action.

Post-workout (or post-shop), tend to extreme burrito cravings and refuel at Chipotle, or check out the excellent selection of prepared foods and grab and go options while having a seat at the long table at Park Royal North’s stunning Loblaws City Market—also a great spot to discover new inspiration for weeknight dinners and school lunches.

Complete the back-to-school shopping ritual with a little adults-only indulgence chosen from the remarkable selection at Park Royal’s newly minted BC Liquor Store, the largest in Western Canada. Check online for entertaining and informative tasting events. (Pro Tip: a bottle of wine makes a memorable teacher gift.)
