March is upon us and Spring is in the air!
The snow has melted and we’re looking forward to sunshine and cherry blossoms, and with that comes the fun and freedom of Spring Break.
If you haven’t solidified your Spring Break plans yet, Tsawwassen Mills Shopping Centre could literally be your one-stop shop for the perfect family getaway. With almost 200 stores on site, entertainment, dining and restaurant options, there’s definitely a little something for everyone – even the pickiest of shoppers!
One of their biggest perks for us islanders is the shopping centre’s exclusive 42-passenger shopping shuttle. The shuttle offers free round-trip transportation from Tsawwassen Ferry Terminal to Tsawwassen Mills daily, coordinating with the Nanaimo and Victoria ferry sailing times, during mall hours.
Tsawwassen Mills is even offering up some GREAT incentives to take part in their survey about the complimentary shuttle use, including a chance to win a $150 Tsawwassen Mills gift card just for completing it!
You can take part in the survey here and win yourself some sweet shopping cash – Tsawwassen Mills would love to hear from you, whether you’ve experienced the shuttle or not!
Without further ado, this is why Tsawwassen Mills Shopping Mall needs to be on your list of places to visit this Spring Break:
1. You can take advantage of their new VIP Visitor Card program
You can visit Guest Services to obtain your very own VIP Visitor Card and take advantage of up to 30% off participating retailers! This offer is for visitors to the area only, and the list of discounts at BC’s premiere shopping destination is impressive – with more than 180 stores, it’s a well-curated mix of premium fashion brands, outlet stores, and first-to-market retailers.
2. Several levels of free gifts!
With another offer exclusively for visitors to the area, if you spend more than $350 in one day you can take all of your receipts to Guest Services to redeem a free gift! The ultimate shopping experience is completed with this signature gift, with even more exclusively tiered rewards, each gift more rewarding than the next. Redeem your same day receipts at Guest Services, near Entry 3.
3. Complimentary ferry shuttle service
One of the most convenient features of Tsawwassen Mills, this service is seriously something you need to take advantage of. You can just park your car at the Swartz Bay Terminal and board the ferry as a walk-on passenger. On the other side, hop on their Ferry Shuttle for a free ride to the mall. Once you’ve shopped until your heart’s content, take the same shuttle back to the ferry terminal for your trip back home. The schedule even coordinates with ferry times!
4. Even MORE free gifts!
If you save your ferry ticket and show it to Guest Services, you’re also eligible to pick up a FREE 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.
5. There’s so much more than just shopping
With fun activities like the skate park at West49 and even bowling at Uncle Buck’s Fish Bowl & Grill, the list of family friendly activities is endless! You can also enjoy unique experiences like Stuffy Riders, Playscape and Virtual Land, all without leaving the shopping centre. For dining options there is Boston Pizza, Milestones, Uncle Buck’s, Montana’s or South Street Burger – and this is aside from the 15 food retailers in their food hall!
It’s worth mentioning again that Tsawwassen Mills shopping shuttle is one of the greatest perks of visiting the outlet shopping centre. Kids and parents alike love a good road trip, and its made even better when you can leave your car at the ferry terminal for a walk-on ferry trip, all thanks to the complimentary service. The fact that it will be waiting for you on the other side when you get off the ferry is the cherry on top!
Don’t forget to throw your name in the hat for a chance to win some serious Spring Break spending money – just for completing Tsawwassen Mills’ survey about their shuttle service! You can check out the survey here – the potential winner gets a $150 gift card to the shopping centre.
