1. Holt Renfrew

With three floors, over 200 luxury brands and its own in-store Ladurée patisserie, Holt Renfrew’s only Vancouver location provides a full day’s activity. If that’s still not enough, branch out into the adjoining Pacific Centre, with almost 100 more shops to explore. 737 Dunsmuir Street

2. Victoria’s Secret

Robson Street is one of the city’s prime shopping strips, with tons of well-known brands—including the world’s second-largest Victoria’s Secret. Its 35,000 square feet, two storeys, 30-foot video screen and spiral staircase bring a little spectacle to Robson. 750 Burrard Street


3. Used House of Vintage

In keeping with the funky vibes of Granville Street, Used House of Vintage offers retro clothing and accessories sourced from all over the world. Find anything from vintage fur coats to classic ’80s band T-shirts to quirky 1950s Halloween costumes. 1008 Robson Street


4. Muji

Hailing from Japan, this one-stop-shop (the first Canadian flagship and the largest outside of Asia) features a mix of household goods, apparel, food and unique interior design products. Also unique is the0 “Muji Yourself” station, loaded with stamps for customizing stationary before you head out the door. 1125 Robson Street


5. New Balance

New Balance is like a candy store for shoe lovers. With more than 50 models in store (and a constant stock of clearance sneakers), you’re bound to finding something that pairs with your Reigning Champ sweats or Lululemon yoga pants—it’s the finishing touch to the perfect athleisure look. 1158 Robson Street

6. Frank and Oak Pop-Up

Recently opened, the Frank and Oak pop-up store carries the brand’s full women’s collection: V-necks, parkas, pea coats, shoes and accessories. The pop-up will stick around until December 2018 and looks to test the potential for a second store in Vancouver. 1173 Robson Street
