Sponsored by Metropolis at Metrotown
One of my first jobs was at Metropolis at Metrotown, and holiday shopping season was my favourite. Christmas music playing overhead, new winter inventory arriving every day, and wrapping a carefully selected gift for a shopper and seeing how excited they were to find it for their loved one. Not to mention the holiday-themed treats that satisfied during extended shopping hours.
This holiday season, Metropolis is introducing several new and improved services to make it even easier and more convenient for shoppers who visit the largest shopping centre in BC.
Holiday Shopping with Ease at Metropolis at Metrotown
Text Guest Services
Shoppers can now text (604) 359-9111 to reach Metropolis’ Guest Services for assistance while in the mall or planning their trip to the mall. Inquire about finding a store, mall hours, parking, children’s stroller, and more. This service is available during mall hours.
Photos with Santa
Metropolis’ popular Photos with Santa program starts Friday, November 16 and runs until December 24, 2018. With a minimum donation of $3 per photo, visitors will receive a digital photo with Santa, with proceeds benefiting the Burnaby Christmas Bureau. Shoppers are encouraged to visit Santa earlier in the season as wait times are less.
Extended Holiday Hours
Metropolis offers extended holiday hours from December 1 straight through until Christmas Eve as follows:
December 1 to 18: 10:00am to 9:00pm – Daily
December 19 to 23: 10:00am to 10:00pm – Moonlight Madness
December 24: 10:00am to 6:00pm
Gift Wrap Services
Burnaby Neighbourhood House and MS Society of BC/Yukon will be offering gift wrapping services by donation starting November 23 to December 24. All proceeds will go back to the charities. Gift wrap booths are located in front of The Disney Store on the Ground Level, and in front of Plenty on the Upper Level.

Metropolis’ gift card is available for purchase at Guest Services and their dedicated holiday gift card kiosks. They are redeemable throughout the mall, as well as 22 other Ivanhoe Cambridge shopping centres across Canada. The gift card is also available for purchase online.
