British Columbia is an excellent shopping destination and you’ll find all of the top high street and designer stores as well as local boutiques and specialist stores.
Being the capital of British Columbia, there’s lots of shopping options to explore. With over 90 shops The Bay Centre is a 'must shop' in Downtown Victoria. You’ll find all your favourite brands such as Guess, Quicksilver, L’Occitane, The Body Shop and Aldo.
In Whistler, stroll through the pedestrian-only village and browse more than 200 shops. Saunter through boutiques that offer everything from high-fashion apparel to hand-crafted jewellery and bathing suits to snowboard boots. Exceptional giftware and luscious chocolate is on display alongside fine art galleries featuring Aboriginal art.
The Kootenay area has a lot to offer when it comes to shopping such as fine art, ski wear and even Alpaca knitted gear! The shopping is very specialist and localised but this allows you to take home an authentic piece of British Columbia. Some of the popular spots include Bavin Glassworks who specialise in bespoke glass crafts and the River Gems Gallery.
