Metropolis at Metrotown; VIP Shopping Experience

If there’s anything Hazel likes to do besides dance, it’s have a girls day. She is always down to get her nails done, grab a coffee (hot chocolate) and shop. We have spent many hours wandering the aisles of Home Sense and looking at all the pretty things and dreaming up ways to incorporate them into our house. So when Metropolis at Metrotown reached out and asked if we wanted to come out on a little shopping trip I couldn’t say no!

Last Sunday we got ready and headed out early for our trip into Burnaby. Surprisingly enough the highway was ideal and it took us just over an hour to get there from Chilliwack. Knowing this it means we could find ourselves headed that way more often as it literally is one stop shopping. 

Hazel had never been to Metropolis before so I knew the mall was going to blow her mind, it huge! If you followed our Instagram stories I posted later that night you know she had her day all planned out with specific things she wanted to look for.  She wanted to go to the Disney store, Indigo, Claire’s, Lush, Zara and Sugarfina.

VIP Visitor Shopping Experience at Metropolis at Metrotown

Metropolis at Metrotown; VIP Visitor Shopping Experience

As an added bonus for out of town guests, and yes that includes us! Anyone visiting Metropolis from Abbotsford  and beyond (outside of Greater Vancouver) is considered out of town. If you pop by their customer service desk and present them with your ID you’ll receive a VIP Visitor Shopping Experience. The VIP Visitor Shopping Experience at Metropolis includes a reusable shopping bag (for all your purchases) and a VIP metro card with special discounts at participating stores just for you! The discounts vary from 5 – 30% off and the list of participating stores can be found in the included brochure along with a mall directory. Trust me, you’ll need one. 

After popping into customer service and presenting our ID’s, we headed over to Ecotique to kick off our girls day with some fresh manicures. Once we were done there it was off to the food court for some lunch and wow the options are endless. While eating our lunch we pulled out our mall directory pamphlet and planned our route of attack. The mall is so big and her legs are so little that I didn’t want to be doubling back.

Luckily for us directly below the food court is the Disney store. The top item on her list was a new Queen Elsa dress as the new Frozen movie is coming out shortly. She had saved all of her birthday money and this was what she wanted to get with it. From there it was off to Sugarfina, Lush, Indigo and then back upstairs to Claire’s and Zara. We spent a solid five hours shopping our way through Metropolis and we nailed her wish list to a T. And once we were done with her list, she let me pop into one store. Just one. 

Fraser Valley Residents Can Visit Metropolis at Metrotown for a VIP Shopping Experience 

As an added bonus if you spend over $350 and show your same day receipts to customer service they have a gift for you! The more you spend the better the gift! Gifts range from Herschel swag, Davids tea packs to gourmet boxes from Edible Canada! Hazel and I just might have spent enough to qualify for the top tier gift 😉 With Christmas just around the corner, and stores for the whole family in one spot that limit will be easy to reach!

You should have seen the look on Hazel’s face when we left and I told her that the mall was so big that there were several stores that we missed. She asked me what kind of stores and I said “oh you know just a Cineplex, Superstore, HomeSense, Walmart etc.” All the really big stores that truly make Metropolis at Metrotown a one stop shop for everything. And trust me, she’s already asked when we are going back so it’s safe to say we will be back soon!
