Shopping (Kevin Arnold photo)
From big shopping malls in the Golden Village and City Centre districts to boutique shopping in the historic fishing village of Steveston, Richmond offers a delightful diversity of options for shoppers.
Richmond's malls are an easy 20-minute ride away from downtown Vancouver, thanks to the Aberdeen, Brighouse and Lansdowne stations on the new Canada Line rapid transit link.
Asian-Themed Malls in the Golden Village
The Golden Village is an Asian-focused shopping and dining district that covers a four-block radius mostly centred on No. 3 Road, just west of Highway 99. Three major destinations for shoppers are Aberdeen Centre, Parker Place, and Yaohan Centre.
At the three-storey Aberdeen Centre (4151 Hazelbridge Way), there are more than 160 stores to visit. This was the largest enclosed, Asian-themed shopping mall in North America when it opened in the early 1990s. Today, the anchor tenant is The Daiso, which carries more than 50,000 products (tableware, clothes, cosmetics, garden tools, and so on), mostly Japanese-made and priced at $2 apiece. The 800-seat food court serves up noodles, BBQ dishes, and desserts from China, Japan, and Korea. The mall's central atrium features music-synchronized fountain shows.
