Park Royal Shopping Centre, West Vancouver

Park Royal Shopping Centre, opened in 1950, is a shopping mall located in West Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Park Royal is officially Canada's first covered shopping mall. Park Royal currently markets itself as five star shopping and has undergone significant changes to attain this. The shopping centre was originally anchored by Woodward's.The Centre was started alongside the Guinness family's British Properties developments nearby, and was named after the London suburb of Park Royal where a Guinness brewery stood. The Guinnesses sold it in 1986.The mall is physically divided into two locations by Marine Drive, a major thoroughfare on the North Shore. The two sides are aptly named North Mall and South Mall, and are connected by overhead vehicle overpasses spanning over Marine Drive. The North Mall is the original part of the mall, and had the anchor store Woodward's (on the East end) and Woodward's Food Floors (on the West end). Expansion to the South Mall occurred in the 1962 with a further development in the mid-1970s. The expansion in the 1960s added SuperValu and Eaton's as the anchor stores on the South Mall. Further expansion in the mid-1970s added a second floor to the mall and the Hudson's Bay store.

  • I was very disappointed in the last two years and especially this year to see that there were virtually NO Christmas decorations in the mall on either side. Santa was certainly not anywhere to be seen...  more »

  • Although the renovations stretched on for years (still ongoing in parts of the north side), the end result is pretty innovative. The Village was completed a number of years ago and has since become a ...  more »

  • The service is terrible. I wanted to buy a necklace for a friend and told the lady I wanted to choose the top 5 and then from there, choose the one I'm going to buy. She must have misunderstood me as when she realized that I'm only going to buy 1 out of the 5 necklaces, I could sense a negative vibe from her and she kind of gave me a scoff. I almost left saying I didn't want anything but I'm not the kind of person to do that so I did end up buying a necklace. Never going back though. All they want is to get the customers to spend as much as possible, which I get. But it's not okay to look down on someone if they only plan to go in and get just one item.
  • I've bought so many jewelry at that store and last night I brought my Sterling Silver earrings with round brilliant diamond to looked at cuz I had it on for 2 days n it turned partly black and the lady told me it was dirty so she took it from me to clean I ask her again why it turned black cuz I was told that there jewelry never do that. She was not happy with me.she made the other lady To Help after turning away n tell her something then the other one came n try to sell me another earrings as she's showing me the earring a guy walks in she stop helping me go to the guy. I stood there for 10 minutes while she trying to make a sale. My my not my money ever again I'm done with that store.
  • Never ever going to this place again! They are only nice when they want to make a sale! Come back for a question and you won't see the same kindness. Good thing I didn't buy an expensive jewellery in this store!
  • If I could put 0 Stars I would.I first walked in this place about 2 years ago looking for a engagement ring for my girlfriend. I was asking questions about diamonds and the clarity carrots quality of diamonds since this was my first ring I was buying. The big girl there was pushing rings and wasn't answering my questions about diamonds I started getting mad and the Manger stepped in and tried to rescue the sale which didn't go so good. Today I went in to buy a chain for my girlfriend cuz the kid broke it the first one. My girlfriend and her were looking at chains well I was looking at the store she noticed I was looking at rings and she tried to add one on the bill an extra $500 when I looked at the price tag on it she ripped it out of my hands and offered to take 200 off didnt make sense since the ring was 500. Anyways I would not recommend buying a candy ring from this place I am glad I got my engagement ring a few doors down
