  • So this was disappointing. Not a ton of stores and the prices aren’t amazingly cheap. needs more food choices. Kids play area is good and covered  more »
  • Walk 2 templeton station from the airport, about 5 minutes. Downtown is 20-30 minutes. Many Asian tourists. There is brand is not so much the number of shops. Good if you have time.

  • The Outlet is very beautiful and your brands stores feature discounts can be attractive, but it's hard to go shopping in the winter of Metro Vancouver (Metropolitan Region) because it rains a lot (especially in January) that added to cold transform the shopping in a martyrdom, because the Mall is in the open (following trends of the famous American Outlets). We started the tour in one day and we had to stop the bad time. We thought we'd return in the days following, but as time not improved were extending the back. Finally, after more than a week, we returned to the firm and gave time to enjoy and take advantage of promotions. Another drawback: there is a food court and there are few places that offer meal, so we left early.

  • Great outlet mall, looks like its out of a movie studio. The layout is well done. Many great stores to shop at and all of them offer great savings. Dont be afraid to use the bathrooms they are unbelievable (in a good way)!. A few places to eat at and the prices are decent. Parking was free. Great view of planes coming in to the airport for landing.
  • Only a small number of the stores provide good/retail quality merchandise. It's mostly lower quality merchandise with the brand name and logo manufactured specifically as outlet merchandise, for those who care more about wearing or carrying a brand name and showing off than they care about the actual quality. Better wait for sales at the retail stores than buying cheap low quality stuff at the outlet. Also good luck finding the bathrooms and something decent to eat if you have any gluten or lactose or nut allergies. Best bring a snack with you.
  • This place is well laid out with an excellent range of shops. Pricing is good when the specials are on. Sizing here is mainly based on the smaller Richmond sizing which can be a limitation. Always a good place to take overseas visitors for an easy shopping experience although about the big sale times as there are large queues just to get in to the place.
  • Love the European architecture. The ambience is classy. Walking on the street makes me feel like I’m in Europe. Always love their Christmas theme. The gigantic Christmas Tree is of course one of the biggest highlight here. Have some great products here. I have many pleasant visits at this place.
  • The location is prime for airport travelers. The store selections are pretty solid, mostly things people in Vancouver are interested in. Not the best sale prices as I have seen better discounts in other outlets, but it is pretty good. A downside is the layout of the area - the circular design means that you can forget which sections have which stores, relative to your current location. If there could be a full dining opportunity that would be great as well, but it's not that bad considering it's not far from Richmond. Overall it's what you would expect and nothing more.
