This holiday season, Metropolis at Metrotown is launching the Lower Mainland’s first and only gift card truck, providing a mobile option for busy shoppers looking for a great gift idea.

The Metropolis gift card truck will operate much like a customer service centre, allowing shoppers to purchase gift cards up to $500 and pay with cash, debit or credit. It will also allow shoppers to personalize their gift card with a free Polaroid picture taken at time of purchase.

What’s more, the Metropolis gift card truck provides a unique opportunity for local businesses to give back to their community during the holiday season. Each time a local business partners with Metropolis at Metrotown to have the gift card truck parked outside the workplace, the shopping centre will make a donation to the charity of that business’s choice.

During the week of Moonlight Madness, from December 19 to 24, the gift card truck will also serve as a shopping drive-through, giving shoppers the option of purchasing a Metropolis gift card while avoiding the holiday crowds inside the mall. The truck will be stationed in the parking lot near Hudson’s Bay and a section of parking stalls will be reserved for drive-through customers.

The truck will be running daily from December 3 to 24.
