“Gltzy but little class”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

For medium to high end, this "village" lacks a feel of a "village area". Just like any ordinary strip mall. A number of store assistance lack quality service experience, snobby and are more concerned in how much "money we were prepared to drop".
Lack of class.

“Nothing Special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

South Granville never comes to mind as a destination spot for visiting friends or family. It contains no tourist attractions, no box stores, no malls. Think of it more as a commercial strip containing small businesses, food markets, several banks and connivence stores. It's greatest claim is most people pass through it going to and from the Vancouver Airport.

“Nice but nothing too special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

Most of the shops were not inspiring.Mixed in with the boring ones or the typical shops with branches in every city are some interesting unique shops.
