South Granville is one of the top shopping destinations in the city with unique locally-operated boutiques to up-scale brand names from south of the border. Easy to get to by transit and peppered with some of the city’s best restaurants, it’s a retail hot spot this season.

The South Granville Business Improvement Association has even published a holiday gift guide to help you find a few gems in their neighbourhood. From board games at Chapters and haircuts at Suki’s, to antiques, galleries, Plum Clothing and DKNY accessories.

Starting tomorrow (December 18th) the South Granville BIA is offering a gift-wrapping service with all proceeds going to local causes. Operating out of Flight Centre, 100% of proceeds from the gift wrapping service will go to Covenant House BC and the Coast Mental Health Foundation.

To help promote this service (and another great gift idea from South Granville) they have offered up two tickets to The Arts Club production of White Christmas on stage at the Stanley Theatre. This holiday classic is delightfully entertaining and you just can’t beat a night of theatre at the Stanley.
