Vancouver Boxing Day Shopping Success!

Posted by the dood on Friday, December 28th, 2007

Shopping this boxing day was fantastic, with Downtown being extremely packed. Interestingly, Downtown had the most people and least deals as far as I was concerned. We hit a few areas but by far the best deals were to be had at Fab Clothing. The location we visited was the Kerrisdale one, but ther is another in the Kits area on 4th Avenue. They carry all the big brands such as Rock & Republic, True Religion, Christian Audigier, Royalty, etc. They had 30% off ALL Men’s denim. Most places were only offering about 25% or less, and sometimes nothing.

I will definately be visiting Fab in the future. Downtown was mediocre… very busy and the discounts were alright. All I ended up with from downtown Robson was a shirt from Mexx. As usual they had their 50% off. I also picked up a shirt from Guess in Pacific Centre. They had additional 50% off all sale merchandise, new stuff was regular priced.

Another stop we made was Aberdeen and Parker Place in Richmond, however this was on Christmas, rather than Boxing day. I visited JCY House in Parker Place, which is an Ed Hardy dealer, and other things as well such as True Religion. Being that they were in Parker Place, sometime the authenticity comes into play, but JCY House’s goods seemed real to me, and comparing to the legit stuff I already have, it looked good. I ended up buying a pair of Ed Hardy jeans there. They had 20% off everything, and 50% off shoes. I was tempted by a pair of ed hardy shoes for 50% off but decided to pass.

Finally we went to Lunch at the Jade Restaurant in Richmond, an excellent restaurant for chinese food, and followed it up by heading to the Bay to find me a new suit. Yeah, I spend much more on my casual clothes than my suits.. so shoot me 🙂 Ended up scoring a nice suit for 50% off, and it fits perfectly.

At the end of the holiday shopping madness, I got:
True Religion Jeans
Christian Audigier Hoodie
Christian Audigier Belt
Ed Hardy Jeans
New Suit
Guess Button up Shirt
Mexx Dress Shirt

I got my girl:
GG&L Purse
Rock n Republic Jeans
Various Shirts

As you can see, I spent more on me 🙂

Some other places of note in Richmond included:
AR Fashion in Aberdeen – Lots of Versace and Moschino and things like that.
Latitude in Richmond Centre – Affliction, Firetrap, Division L
Boys’Co Outlet in Richmond Centre – Seemed like deals but I didn’t go in.
Below the Belt in Richmond Centre – Lots of Ed Hardy at this location, none on Sale for Boxing Day though.

Hope your holiday shopping was as good as ours!
