Malls are BACK.
While some may say the pinnacle shopping experience is now online, we ask you: haven’t you spent enough time shacked up at home, aimlessly scrolling through life?
If you haven’t met your fill in the last two years of cold and clinical interactions, by all means, continue. However, if you yearn for a bygone era of actually being able to try things on, getting live in-person help, followed by a stroll down to the food, then you’re in the right spot.
One of the great places in Burnaby to purchase just about anything, Lougheed has been a shopping destination for over 50 years. It wasn’t until recently though that the mall relaunched as The City of Lougheed. So why the new name? Well, if you’re already the centre of the city, you may as well become the city centre.

No matter what you’re looking for, chances are you’ll be able to find it at The City of Lougheed. From specialty Japanese stationary at Omomo, to handmade Mayan jewelry and stained glass at Indigenous Trails, there are countless shops to pique your curiosity or pick up a unique gift for the holidays. It’s really the quintessential spot to prep for the giving season.
Pick up a board game from T&N Games and show your relatives that you haven’t lost your competitive edge, or just offer them an olive branch with a box of treats from Bubble Waffle Cafe. No matter the gesture, you can find a way to say it at The City of Lougheed.

Of course, gifts to yourself are just as important. A visit to the Japanese Shiatsu Clinic will leave you rejuvenated and refreshed, while a cup of organic Taiwanese oolong from Shiny Tea will give you a welcome moment of zen. If all else fails though, your mood will absolutely be boosted after a slice of the famous mango cake from Anna’s Cake House.
Try on a new look for the new year at one of the salons on-site, or just stock up on party favours before your guests arrive.
With so many ways to relax, run errands, or just pursue a new interest, it’s no wonder The City of Lougheed is the new city centre.
