  • This shopping mall has some great shops for all ages of clientele. Places with tasty treats or nice cloths. Well worth the experience during the rainy & stormy weather. 
  • Not a huge fan of shopping malls when there's no huge outdoor store (like Cabella's or Bass ) but as they go Coquitlam is a good 'un. It's large with plenty of parking and, typical in Vancouver, becau...  read more »
  • It has all the regular stores from Walmart to Best Buy, from Aritzia to the Gap and everything in between. If you are looking for the standard array of mall stores this is it. 
  • Biggist shopping mall in Coquitlam including from Bestbye to Walmart. There are lots of comportable places to take a rest.
  • Probably the best comprehensive shopping mall outside of Metrotown. Large and has stores in all categories. Good food court with a Diary Queen, KFC, and McDonalds.
  • Good variety of anchor stores and normal shops including Best Buy, HBC, Sears, H&M. The mall was originally built in the 80s. Renovations occurred 10 years back to extend the mall. Decent food options in the food court. The mall isn't as busy as Metrotown so it's easier to navigate with my toddler.
  • Even though small but it has all the stores you need to do a one stop shop. You could buy clothes, electronics and groceries. It has the big stores Best Buy then you have TnT. What more can you ask for a mall. And if it gets late and you don't want to cook, walk outside and you have many restaurants around the area.
  • The first thing you'll see when you enter Coquitlam Centre is the wooden ceilings. It may see old, and dated, but the wooden ceilings are very warm to the eyes. It's significant departure from the bright white light that usually shines down when shopping in other shopping centres. It is very unique. In my experience, Coquitlam Centre was one of the first shopping centres to offer complimentary couches and seating to the guests and patrons. Metrotown soon followed suit, but this was at least five years later. Coquitlam Centre appears very large, but is wonderfully connected by large atriums. The ceiling, in most areas, are over 40 feet tall and it doesn't feel closterphobic at all when walking around the main areas. There's also lots of room to maneuver. The most popular stores to see include London Drugs, Golf Town, Sport Chek, Walmart, T&T Super market, Aritzia, Columbia Sports (I think they're still there), H&M, The Bay, an Apple Store, Best Buy and an assortment of stores. There's a lot of ground parking, but some of the parking spaces are fairly far away. Thankfully, there are a number of different entrances. The Coquitlam Centre Food Court is also amazing. Some personal favourites include New York Fries, Dairy Queen, Thai Express, A&W, and Arbys, Yogen Fruz or something like it is also available. Coquitlam Centre is easily one of my favourite shopping centres in BC because of the large ceilings, and the sense of openness that is grossly lacking in other shopping centres. You do not feel constrained or herded into crowds. There's lots of space.
