I have been to Yorkdale Shopping Centre so many, many times and each time i go there to shop or just to inspire my "dream closet", it always seems impossible to do the whole mall without finding an excuse to take a few breaks here and there. I would even walk into some furniture stores just so i can sit for a bit, hahaha. The mall is huge to say the least and you will find almost every store in the book there.
The whole concept behind the Avion Boutique is a way of RBC thanking its Avion cardholders by making their holiday shopping experience a walk in the park. They are provided exclusive and complimentary services such as:
-Access to the VIP Lounge and Cafe
I drove to Yorkdale Shopping Centre and knowing how big that mall is, i was worried about parking a little too faraway from the closest entrance to the Avion Boutique (I know, lazy people's problems, hahaha). Great thing is, as part of the perks of being an Avioner, you get the luxury of using the curbside valet parking. I went with my gut on this one and I drove in from the North entrance to the shopping centre and walked in through the doors between Hudsons's Bay and Forever 21 which is on the same north side. I walked a few steps ahead to the Mall Directory stand and found the Avion Boutique was right behind me to my left (located in A1 according to the mall directory). Nice!
From the moment i stepped my foot in the door, i was welcomed in the warmest way possible. No kidding. The gentleman at door was so friendly and in great spirit. That is always a good thing, right? There was a concierge area to my left just by the entrance where i was asked to kindly put my name on the list and sign a waiver of course :). The launch party was already in full swing when i got there and i was taken by surprise at how super gorgeous the boutique was. I was immediately asked to help myself to some food but i was still trying to take it all in. I guess i had no idea what it would be like. By the way, the food was delicious.
The cafe/bar area was stunning, the entire place was lit up so beautifully and glowing with all the holiday decors. I walked further in and there was the coat check area! Who doesn't love a coat check? I live for that, hahaha. The ladies there were just beaming with smiles and even gave me a few compliments on my outfit. (Will share my outfit later).
Then i moved on to watch the professional gift wrapping in progress for guests. It was really nice to watch and everyone was just so pleasant.
The event continued with a Christmas carol and then our Canada's own Kardinal Offishall got on stage to perform. How cool!
After a speech by one of the three Canadian Olympians attending the event, we moved on to a watch a wrapping contest.That was a lot of fun.
So how do you become an RBC Avioner or an Avion cardholder to enjoy all these perks? You can find out how to become an RBC Avion cardholder here.
