Gastown is my local neighbourhood and East Hastings from Gastown to Burnaby has become my main shopping street – with the occasional foray to H-Mart or Fujiya, which I pass by on my way home from work. There are so many great places to shop in Vancouver, and these are the stores I frequent regularly.
