i just don't get it. the idea of going to this place and fighting with these crowds for 'stuff' that you don't need blows my mind.
ironic posting that on a forum where most members own more than 1 car
luxury and excess sums up a large percent of the Vancouver crowd

Doubt it.

Also, 34 posts in 10 years? Damn.

While I agree with you to an extent, whens the last time a few hundred of us showed up to buy a car there were a large amount of and tackled and trampled each other to get one. It would be like every member showed up when there was a deal at the scion dealership and fucked each other up to get the best deal on an FR-S.

Obviously the only possible explanation is, Scion hasn't given us a good enough deal on the FRS for that to happen yet.

Nor is Scion a "designer brand". Maybe if it's $800 off a X5 / ML Class

if there was 70% off brand name car parts at a massive warehouse grand opening and it was widely advertised, i think that might just happen. Not to the extent of delayed flights but I can't say with confidence it will be 100% civil.

sure some people spend a fair bit on designer apparel but are the people on here who post pics of their stable of cars and a bike on their parent's driveway in any position to judge?

car parts probably arent as comparable with this, maybe computer parts
so 70% off of last generation video cards/cpu's? ....maybe, i can see that yeah, every boxing day/black friday ncix/bb is packed, but then again that's only twice a year

Most likely I won't go there. There are better deals online (even cheaper if you have friends or relatives in China or HK and just have them ship you the goods you purchse through online store in that region).

If I need to buy something local is something I need now so I usually just go to a regular mall go in and out. No need to fight the crowd. I hate shopping or going to the malls on weekends. Too many people just standing around blocking your way. There is hardly any place to sit.

I'd probably throw most of you under the bus for a brand-new FRS at 50% off.

Nothing personal, just saying...

Except westopher. Saw your ride at a certain downtown parking garage lovingly sandwiched between a fence and a post. The fear of door dings is strong in this one...

I hate window shopping at malls especially when the party or significant other that I'm going with doesn't know what they/she wants. My lower back isn't the best and just standing or walking around destroys it. On top of that, I think malls are mentally exhausting and draining at the same time due to the amount of people and such it gets real boring. The only time I go to the mall is when I know what I'm looking for and I know where to get it. Luckily my S.O. knows I'm serious about this

Went today with very low expectations and they were met. It sucked, things were garbage nuff said. Did feel really weird seeing an outdoor mall of this outlet style. Felt like I was in the states.

they have so many of these in the uk its crazy, some of the big ones are huge, but the one thing that stood out for me is their version of a rest area on the highway....it's like going to a mall, mind you a small mall but still a mall built around the loo. Shit and Shop is what my cousin there said they called it
