Pacific Mall, as others have stated, is only useful for food these days. That arcade is decent too, I suppose. Tech deals can always be found on the internet these days, so even if there was a deal at PM, it'll be online for the same price or less. Rare is it that a bricks-and-mortar store can compete with online sales in 2012, at least for tech stuff.
Boycott PlayScape. Kash the manager it's hated by everyone. He killed the arcade there. Go play at Lovegety instead

Ya Lovegety is more fun imo. Newer games and Chau Sir is very nice. Except the problem is that Lovegety doesn't have the new DJ Max I think. It's like the only game that's keeping "Orbit" alive.

Yeah but those are all over the GTA if you're into that. I read somewhere that no legit massage parlour has a neon sign. If you see neon, a happy ending's in store.

P mall used to be cool for computer parts, cell phones, asian snacks and knock-off dvds. Not anymore.

After knowing the existence of DX, we all realize cell phone accessories in pmall carry such a ridiculous markups. I wanted to pickup a short USB micro cable for the car, the girl told me the cable sells for $10. This is absolutely ludicrous!

For asian snacks like bubble tea, pmall is still the place to go. Those two competing bubble tea chains are keeping the price competitive.

Egg waffles! <3



Lets see I bought R4, PS2 games, laptop, and a cellphone case there. All at a great price for bargaining, well more like I just annoyed the crap out of them and they gave me a bigger discount.
Yes I purchased a laptop, it was a Fujitsu! Truth be told this was all in the past though, now I don't know what to buy there...


Anyone know any other places to get the egg waffles apart from PMall? Anywhere else?!?!

Pacific Mall was never a cheap place to buy anything. I've been there at least once a year for over 10 years now, and there really hasn't been any improvements. Sure, you've got that Chinese Heritage Village or whatever you call it, but it's always been about dingy stores selling products of questionable origin at questionable prices. If my dad wanted to buy electronics he'd go elsewhere, as he hates bargaining. He also despised the Canto-speaking business owners for their rude attitude and shoddy service to people who spoke Mandarin.

I fail to see how the prices for bubble tea there are competitive in any way.

You're biased. You worked there so it's obvious you got bored of Pacific Mall quickly. Like how I'm biased because I used to go every week to play at Orbit...

Now Pacific Mall is only good for snacks and chilling around with friends. Can't even buy DVDs there :(
you just not looking in dah right places ;)

PMall is becoming more akin to a flea market than anything really.

And LoL at the Honda Indy 500 Bumper Cars comment - so true, so true. You want to see Canada's Worst Drivers? Just go to Pacific Mall!

You don't need to go there to see them, just look for any taxi on the road!
