Vancouverites will have good reason to ring in the Lunar New Year by indulging in some retail therapy. That’s because Cadillac Fairview (CF) Pacific Centre (701 West Georgia Street) and CF Richmond Centre (6551 No. 3 Road) will be putting on a number of vibrant displays and exciting events to ensure shoppers an unforgettable experience, in between browsing some of the fabulous stores.
To celebrate the Year of the Pig on Tuesday (February 5), visitors are invited to both locations to kick off the New Year in style. And as two of Canada’s premier shopping destinations, there will be no shortage of inspiration from stores like Holt Renfrew, Nordstrom, Harry Rosen, AllSaints, kate spade new york, Ted Baker London, Michael Kors, and many more.
For the first time ever, the centres will host visitors in beautifully decorated lounges from Monday (February 4) to February 20 to commemorate the special holiday. Guests can take a break from shopping and enjoy a rest in the lounge’s opulent surroundings—not to mention take advantage of the stunning backdrop for a photo opportunity.
Everyone knows that the New Year is a perfect time to look ahead to a prosperous future, but visitors to the shopping centres during the 16-day celebration are reminded to look up and marvel at the large-scale lantern displays suspended from the ceilings.
Those who really want to make the most of the Lunar New Year festivities should mark their calendars to stop by the Rotunda at CF Pacific Centre at 3:30 p.m. on Friday (February 8), and the Main Galleria at CF Richmond Centre at 11:00 a.m. on Sunday (February 10). There will be the chance to enjoy exciting cultural experiences including a traditional lion dance and eye-dotting ceremony.
And don’t miss the opportunity to visit the Purdys Chocolatier God of Fortune who will be treating passers-by by handing out lucky red pockets containing a chocolate coin. Sweet!
CF Pacific Centre and CF Richmond Centre are conveniently accessible via public transit on the SkyTrain lines or TransLink bus routes.
