Share post:

Retail Insider resumes our annual tradition of sharing holiday photos of Canadian shopping areas for 2022. Both landlords and merchants have rolled out the red carpet for holiday shoppers and the staff at Retail Insider wanted to share their efforts for those on a mission as they plow through their Christmas shopping, those who haven’t seen their favourite retail haunts over the holiday season for a while, or for those who like to thumb through festive holiday photos like we do!

This instalment of the ‘Holiday Photo Series’ takes us to the Alberni Street luxury zone in downtown Vancouver, British Columbia. Once a nondescript commercial street, the street emerged as a luxury hub for the downtown core in the early 2010s.

With the opening of Shangri-La hotel with its Burberry stand-alone store and nearby De Beers diamond flagship, the luxury retailers began slowly taking over the Alberni Street between Thurlow and Burrard Streets.
