5 reasons for Vancouver Islanders to make a day trip to Tsawwassen Mills during Spring Break (CONTEST)


Look outside!

The winter winds have come and gone, and now we’ve got clear skies and Spring blossoms to look forward to. So what better way to celebrate than to go on a well-deserved shopping spree at one of the most premium outlet malls in the country!

At Tsawwassen Mills, you are in for more than just a shopping experience, there is something for the whole family to enjoy.

Treat yourself and your loved ones to a quick getaway to Tsawwassen Mills Shopping Mall, and while you pick out your new summer ensemble, the kids can bowl at Uncle Bucks, skateboard at West 49 skate park, or browse the many sports and outdoor stores in Outdoor Life neighbourhood. With almost 200 stores on site, entertainment, food hall and restaurant options, you’ll be spoiled for choice.

This mainland destination offers special perks just for Vancouver Islanders, including a convenient complimentary Tsawwassen Mills shopping shuttle and perks and deals!

So without much further ado, here are 5 reasons why Tsawwassen Mills Shopping Mall needs to be on your travel list this Spring Break:

1. Extra savings for tourists

Not living in Vancouver has its perks when you visit Tsawwassen Mills! Just head over to Guest Services by Entry 3 to pick up a copy of the ‘Love Everything About Savings‘ Booklet, which includes deals and discounts from over 50 retailers, just for out-of-towners. Take advantage of additional savings on these already low outlet prices, from your favourite brands that aren’t available on the island!

Plus if you spend more than $350 in one day, take all your receipts to Guest Services to redeem a Free Gift with Purchase! This is another offer exclusively for tourists, so make sure to take advantage of it.

2. Find new favourites at ridiculously low prices

We love Vancouver Island and all it has to offer, but the amount of variety at this mainland outlet mall takes retail therapy to a whole new level! From bikinis to ball gowns, legos to Star Wars, hot sauce to household goods – Tsawwassen Mills Shopping mall truly has something for everyone. Take advantage of brands like the Lululemon Outlet, Lucky Brand Outlet, Saje Natural Wellness, Michael Kors Outlet, Pro Hockey Life and Bass Pro Shops and various outlet stores all under one roof!

3. Your kids can meet Peppa Pig for free!

Peppa Pig and her brother George are coming to Tsawwassen Mills on Thursday, March 22nd, and Friday, March 23rd – and your little ones get to meet them for free! Time slots are available between 11 AM and 3 PM, so simply visit Guest Services by Entry 3 or call 604-948-9889 to register. Your kids won’t forget this day soon, because not only will they get to meet their favourite cartoon characters, but they’re also promised a fun-filled afternoon of face painting, colouring, mural wall painting, and other activities at the event!

4. Complimentary ferry shuttle service

We brought this up earlier, but as one of the coolest, most convenient features of Tsawwassen Mills, it’s worth reiterating. Once you step off the ferry in Vancouver, just leave your car at the terminal and hop on their Ferry Shuttle for a free ride to the mall. And once you’ve shopped till you dropped, take the same shuttle back to the ferry terminal for your trip back home. The schedule coordinates with ferry times so you don’t even have to wait around!

Before you head back on the shuttle, include some time to enjoy one of the options along
Restaurant Row for dinner or Happy Hour, conveniently located adjacent to the Ferry
Shuttle stop.

5. A free gift just for being from Vancouver Island!

Make sure you save your ferry ticket and show it to Guest Services (Entry 3), because while you pick up your ‘Love Everything About Savings’ booklet, you’re also eligible to pick up a Surprise & Delight gift, as a thank you for making the trip. Between March 18th and April 1st, just show your ferry ticket and claim your free gift, courtesy of Tsawwassen Mills.
