The Gastown Shop Hop 2011 is on today from 5pm to 9pm. This year is the the biggest one yet with over 35 businesses taking part and also restaurants will be taking part for the first time this year. So once you’re done getting great deals at the city’s finest boutiques head on over to the many restaurants and bars that are participating to grab a bite and a pint.
If you make a purchase at any of the participating retailers you’ll get a voucher for a free drink or appy at a participating restaurant. Check out the image above to see who is participating.
Gastown, it’s where Vancouverites go to for local designers, shops and to get away from the influx of people from the ‘burbs on the weekends. It’s also home to some of the most passionate business people in the city. The shop hop is an excellent way to explore the neighbourhood and support local business.
