Whether shopping for furniture, a new outfit or even some used tools, Abbotsford has the right shops to fill your needs. The variety of stores in Abbotsford is vast, ranging from high-end fashion stores to a weekly flea market.

Sevenoaks

Shopping Centre

Sevenoaks Shopping Centre has over 100 stores to choose from when you need a shopping fix. The Sevenoaks merchandise mix has a strong component of fashion-oriented stores, including Gap, Bootlegger, Aldila, Garage, La Vie En Rose/Aqua, La Senza, etc. The Food Court includes 475 seats and is home to regional and national food retailers such as New York Fries, Quiznos, Freshslice Pizza, Taco Bell/KFC, Koya Japan, A&W, Manchu Wok, Thai Express, Orange Julius/Dairy Queen and Starbucks.

Specialty Shops

Abbotsford has plenty of stand-alone stores carrying the latest trends and specialty fashions. Many of them are located in the downtown area and along South Fraser Way. From swimwear to prom gowns, you’ll be able to find something to suit your occasion. Malls such as West Oaks continue to be an excellent option, as does the addition of Sumas Mountain Village featuring Save-On-Foods and Shoppers Drug Mart. Parallel Marketplace, with Cooper’s Foods and Whatcom Wine and Spirits, also provides great selection.

Living the High Life

Highstreet, a 600,000-square-foot open-air centre, provides the Fraser Valley with the kind of urban experience that used to be a much longer trip in the car. Anchored by Walmart SuperCentre, London Drugs, Marshalls, H&M, Old Navy and Cineplex VIP Cinemas, the three-level project features main street-style shopping up top, placed conveniently above 1400 covered parking spaces. They have a wide range of dining selections and there is a safe and convenient playground for children to keep them busy. Pedestrian-friendly, open-air shopping, Highstreet is an iconic signature  development for the Fraser Valley, located just north of Highway 1 by the Mt. Lehman exit.

Flea Market

If you fancy yourself a bargain hunter, head to the Sunday flea market at Abbotsford Exhibition Park. The indoor/outdoor market is open from 6 a.m. - 4 p.m. year round.
