FMA REDDOT Shopping Week is designed to encourage consumers to explore their local shopping hubs and discover some of the unique retailers available in Vancouver. The REDDOT Shopping Week Campaign will highlight five key shopping districts within the Greater Vancouver Area in time for holiday shopping season. The event will support the Vancouver retail and hospitality industry by creating a shopping experience to consumers in Vancouver’s distinct shopping neighborhoods with special store events and sales throughout the week.

This fun and exciting initiative will kick off with a Launch Pad Party in each district as a meeting point for shoppers who will then be sent off to explore that area’s various charms. Shoppers will be able to navigate each district’s area and stores with a unique mobile app.

The fun doesn’t just stop at traditional retailers. This event will include art galleries, hair salons, spas, furniture stores, car dealerships and even real estate agencies. To encouraging overnight stays, REDDOT Shopping Week organizers are working with community partner Tourism Vancouver to coordinate special hotel rates for the shopping week. In addition, organizers will implement special sales with Vancouver Ford dealerships and real estate deals with Eco Realty.

“I’m excited to work and promote our unique local business communities here in Vancouver. It’s all about our local business’ who are so valuable to our city.” says founder and creator, Andy Chu. “It’s an added bonus that this great shopping experience, complete with sales and parties, will be held during the important pre-holiday season.”
