Our tour guide highly recommended the Roots stores as he felt the quality and selection was better than most other shops. He was right. Although we did poke around a bit in the Robson store, we did buy a few items at the Squamish store.

We went in here and they were very attentive but not overbearing. They helped when I needed to ry a jacket on from the mannequin and were patient with us while we tried on several clothes. Expensive clothing but well worth it, the quality is...More

Had to add it to my list as I have visited most other Roots locations throughout North America. Yes, I did purchase two Vancouver Rooots items for my daughters to add to their collections. Nice store

Went here to browse around and couldn't seem to detach from cloying sales assistants. Kept repeating themselves: e.g. "this is made in Canada". It's like, yes I can read! Quite pricey items for made in China gear, and pretty bland in the style department. But...More

Right on the corners of Burrard and Robson Streets trying to look somewhat like a lodge. Mostly outdoor wear with expensive price tags. Staff not very friendly or involved with shoppers. Seems folding shirts etc. more important than selling or helping customers. Good for the...More

once a canadian mainstay, everyone who ever been to Canada heard about Roots. They were the original lululemon with great sweats and outdoor wear. Somewhere along the line, they stuck to their formula and also stayed in the 80's. The design never changed and although...More

We miss having a Roots store at home so visit this one whenever we are in Victoria. The staff are always friendly and helpful. They need more space! They get every ounce of value out of the premises but it can get congested in there...More
