The largest Christmas store in Western Canada is now open in Metro Vancouver

Check out some photos from this year's displays.

Potters has launched its highly-anticipated Christmas Store in Metro Vancouver for the 2023 holiday season. 

The Surrey nursery transforms into a festive wonderland for the holidays each year, offering 28,00 square feet of elaborate decorations, beautiful giftware, and specialty items to shoppers from across the region. 

The Potters team says they spend the entire year scouring the globe for unique merchandise, which makes their selection so diverse. Some of the items include hand-picked ornaments, designer trees, over 50 styles of stockings, collectibles, stocking stuffers, food items, and many others.

Now in its 19th year, the Christmas Store at Potters, which is the largest Christmas store in Western Canada, features 30 themed trees throughout the store, including "two massive, constantly spinning upside-down trees that are loaded with white lights and decorations." 

Potters Christmas Store displays and sections

The team has also put together several beautiful, intricate displays including : 

  • Pretty in Pink: The new front entrance display greets guests with thousands of magical, glimmering pink and white ornaments, from floor to ceiling and around every corner.
  • Dark Room: Over 100 Christmas-themed water lanterns illuminate this 3,000-square-foot gallery spotlighting 75 different Christmas-themed canvas paintings.
  • Gourmet Food: This zone offers thousands of Canadian specialty products that are ideal for the holiday season – including Potters Peach and Kentucky Bourbon sauce. Hot chocolate from Montreal’s Gourmet Village (more than 40 different colours and flavours); locally-made jellies, syrups, and sauces from Krause Berry Farms, The Preservatory, and Cranberries Naturally; and savoury, seasoned pretzels from Surrey-based Those Pretzels are among the delicacies.
  • Candyland: A section chock full of sweet ornaments for the tree includes donuts, gingerbread, cotton candy and many other sweet treats.
  • Petland: Bring furry friends holiday joy with pet-themed tree ornaments, cushions, and stockings.

This year, Potters had added or expanded the following areas: 

  • Thru the Grapevine: The popular vino section returns with a "world of drinks," from wine-themed ornaments to gifts for lovers of wine, beer, and holiday tipples.
  • Coca-Cola: The beloved collectibles area has expanded into an authentic 1950s diner-themed display (right down to the classic checkered floor!) of Coca-Cola ornaments, figurines, and more.
  • Men-Zone: A new area loaded with cool gifts he’ll love has everything from soaps, slippers, and scarves to hot sauce (packed inside a stick of dynamite!), all in one place.
  • Great Britain: Find British-themed delights, including tinned cookies, Corgi mugs, and Royal tableware pieces, cleverly housed in a classic red telephone box.
  • MouseTown: This “town run by mice” has been completely redesigned and reimagined. Kids of all ages will be immersed in the mini-ski lifts, cable cars, and all sorts of other moving parts.
