Speciality food stores, cool fashion boutiques, gift shops and more!

Kitsilano boasts a number of stores that are perfect for grabbing a last minute gift or getting your hands on the latest Vancouver-made trends. When you’re done strolling through the sand at Kits beach, hit the pavement to spend your hard earned cash at the ‘hood’s best boutiques.

1. Parthenon Supermarket

If specialty foods are your indulgence of choice, pay a visit to Parthenon supermarket on West Broadway: the Greek market has an amazing deli and an extensive collection of vegan and gluten-sensitive specialty items. 3080 W Broadway

2. Gravitypope

Another 4th Avenue must-visit shop is Gravitypope, a shoe store and neighbouring tailored goods outlet with a carefully curated collection from around the world. 2203 W 4th Avenue

3. Kit and Ace

Kitsilano’s West 4th Avenue is home to some true Vancouver originals. You may already be aware of Lululemon—for a time its yoga pants were Vancouver’s uniform—but you may not know of founder Chip Wilson’s familial side project, Kit and Ace, which attempts to bring athleisure wear to the boardroom with its patented “technical cashmere” fabrics. 2235 W 4th Avenue

4. The Latest Scoop

The Latest Scoop presents a mixture of fashion, footwear and home decor. It originally got its start as a pop-up shop around the city, but you can now find them permanently on West 4th, one of their four Vancouver storefronts. 2242 W 4th Avenue

5. Oh My Gift

One of our fave gift shops, Oh My Gift has something for every occasion—especially the holiday season! A soap or lotion from their bath and body collection makes for a perfect stocking stuffer. 2039 W 4th Avenue
