Covid-19 Safety Precautions

Vancouver Special is  committed to creating both a safe and enjoyable experience for our customers and staff, and we are taking our re-opening procedures slowly and carefully.

At this time, we are offering limited capacity drop-in shopping (max 4 people in the shop at one time), as well as curbside pick up, and private shopping by appointment.

We ask that you please limit your visits to 20 minutes and shop with intention.

We are practicing social distancing (2m), disinfecting high touch areas, and taking payments over the phone or by tap (no cash please). We sanitize the card machine after every use.

Our staff wear masks and face shields at all times, and we mandate that all customers wear masks and gloves. If you do not have your own, we will provide them for you.


Curbside Pickup

If you have placed an order for in-store pick up, please phone or knock on the front door when you arrive and we will come to the sidewalk to assist you. If you prefer we can also bring it to your vehicle for a completely contactless experience.

Thank you for supporting us and other local small businesses!

Shop Concept

Vancouver Special is a retail store offering a carefully edited and hand picked selection of contemporary furniture, sofas, design objects, household accessories, and art and architecture books. Our aim is to promote the idea that good design can be accessible, affordable, of high quality and bring pleasure to daily life.

We opened in April 2008 on Main Street in the heart of Vancouver’s creative Mount Pleasant neighbourhood.

Vancouver Special is a local, independent family business. It is owner-operated by recovered-architect and design advocate Anne Pearson. She is constantly researching and traveling in order to provide an inspiring and constantly evolving product mix.
