Second best mall, number one in our hearts

Pacific Centre falls from top spot of extremely important mall ranking thingy

Kudos and Kvetches

Say what you will about Vancouver’s “liveability,” when it comes to shopping we’ve got it going on. At least that’s what we gleaned from a recent Sun article boasting that three of Canada’s top 10 malls are in the Lower Mainland. In your face, Victoria — you call Tillicum a mall? More like a bathroom stop attached to a subpar Winner’s. Oh snap.

According to market analysts Retail Insider, which ranks malls based on annual sales per square foot of retail space, and not the number of Orange Julius’s, Metrotown ranked ninth, Oakridge claimed third spot and Pacific Centre dropped from first to second, getting edged out by some dump in Toronto.

If it’s any consolation, Pacific Centre is still the number one mall for visually impaired British tourists who like being labeled “suspicious Middle Eastern men” and having their images plastered over the Internet despite doing absolutely nothing wrong, thanks to a frustratingly popular blog with the journalistic integrity of drool.
