Shopping in Style with RBC Avion Holiday Boutique
While I was bundling the babies into the car my neighbor asked where we were off to? I told her that we were heading to Yorkdale Mall to do some Christmas shopping. She asked if I was crazy? You are bringing two babies under two to a busy mall just weeks before Christmas. I told her not too worry that we would be getting the VIP treatment thanks to RBC Avion and their holiday boutique.
We would be treated to Coat Check, Gift Wrapping and most importantly Valet Parking.
Valet Parking is key when you have little ones and the parking lots are busy. The folks at the valet parking were fantastic and helped get the kids out of the car and we were in the mall before we knew it. The Avion Holiday boutique was a close walk and we were able to drop our coats off and get shopping without being weighed down. It had been a few years since I had shopped at Yorkdale and it has really changed – such a beautiful mall. After getting a few gifts knocked off my list we headed back to the lounge to refuel.
If you have a sweet tooth I would recommend the Hot Chocolate – they have sprinkles, marshmallows and candy canes to make it fancy 😉 I went for a good ol' coffee, the fuel of moms! Shane was treated to a Purdy's chocolate at the refreshment bar, and Aria was just sitting pretty in her Santa Suit!
Once we had our drinks we sat down in the lounge to feed Aria and read some books that they had available to read. Nothing like a Robert Munsch holiday book! This lounge is the perfect place to take a break, wait to have your gifts wrapped and just relax. The decorations were totally amazing and Christmas music was playing in the background totally getting me into the holiday mood. Once rested enough to be on our way we called the Valet to let them know that we were done. We picked up our coats and by the time we made it to the door our car was ready and waiting for us! Talk about first class service!
If you are an RBC Avion Card holder all this can be yours. The lounges are located at Yorkdale Mall (ON), Mall Champlain (QC), Coquitlam Centre (BC), and Halifax Shopping Centre (NS). Not a card holder not to worry you can apply right in the lounge while you enjoy a hot chocolate.
