“McArthurGlen Vancouver is dedicated to supporting and championing the local community. We have been proud to support local charitable initiatives and organizations such as the Richmond Food Bank Society and local youth soccer club, RichmondFC. It’s important that we stick together as a community, and we want to provide a platform for local businesses as well. The Made in Vancouver market provides just that, while offering our guests a new and exciting experience in a spacious and safe setting, providing the recommended social distancing.”, said Robert Thurlow, General Manager of McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Vancouver Airport
