What is at Canada Place Pier?
 
I need to know what shops are at C.P. pier, is there a duty-free shop, liquor store, place to buy toiletries, last minute stuff? How about a customs office for a GST refund?

We are not going to the airport at all.

Thanks in advance.

There are lots of shops there and within a few blocks. We went to a drug store about a block or two away. There is some duty free shopping at Canada Place. If you are planning on purchasing alcohol, cruiseline policies vary greatly. I guess NCL and Carnival are pretty strict about bringing such purchases on board. Others are a little more liberal in their restrictions.

You can walk to Gastown, which is right by the pier, lots of shops, mostly touristy stuff, but very interesting and worth spending some time there. Look for the STeam clock while you are there...

There is a mini mall undergroundwhich has a food court and a few stores. We didn't explore too much of it, just enough to know we wouldn't find what we were looking for.

I got 2 e-mails today - 1 from the concierge at the Pan Pacific ( he said that they have a sundry-gift shop )

Someone from the Canada Place marketing-she said they shops that sell - cigaretts,cigars,chocolates,coffee (brewed)and perfume. That's it.

So buy other than canada place or go in Pan Pacific lobby. Thanks to all for the replys.
