Geographically bounded by 5th Avenue to the north and 16th Avenue to the south,the South Granville Shopping Precinct is naturally divided into several sub-precincts, creating a natural flow for shoppers. From Broadway north, the area, often referred to as “Gallery Row,” is home to 14 different art galleries and antique dealers. Within the blocks between Broadway and West 16th Avenue, local, national and international retailers create an easy, walkable, shopping mecca to service the community and the greater Vancouver area. The area features a mix of service, fashion and furniture/homeware retailers. Restaurants have also established a strong, and growing, presence and promote a lively evening streetscape. This variety pulls shoppers from around the Lower Mainland, who seek brands and products that cannot be found elsewhere in the Vancouver area.
