Christmas Shopping in the Old City Quarter


Nanaimo’s historic Old City Quarter is jam packed with shops and restaurants.

The Holiday season is when shopping, celebrating and generally indulging is on everyone’s to-do list. You can do it all in the Old City Quarter.

While you’re there, walk around and see how many interesting and unique places there are to visit. I’m a huge fan of West Coast Classic Floral Design. Sandra’s creativity and style are astounding! There’s many a character to chat with, notables include Dee at Damsel’s and the Big Cheese Himself, Eric at McLean’s.

Speaking of which, McLean’s Specialty Foods has been a Nanaimo institution for 19 years! They have the best of everything! Their loyal following has sold them out of 300 pounds of Christmas Cake and it’s only the first week of December! Do your self a favour and get in there! If you need a sugar rush to get you through the shopping, stop in and have a Wee Cupcake from Medina! The cream cheese icing is to die for!
There’s more….
Come see for yourself!
