RBC Avion Holiday Boutique Launch Party at Yorkdale

Let the festivities begin! I love the holiday season and, while I normally wait till December to start celebrating, I kicked things off early this year at the launch party for RBC’s Avion Holiday Boutique at Yorkdale Shopping Centre!

Open from November 19th through the duration of the holiday season, the Avion Holiday Boutique features exclusive services like complimentary gift wrapping, parcel check, porter service, and even valet parking for Avion credit card holders. To my pleasant surprise, there was even a virtual reality experience! It’s cool to see VR popping up more and more in different scenarios – in this case, RBC used the Samsung Gear to show different rewards available when redeeming RBC Rewards points, transporting us to a tropical beach, a beautiful golf course and a luxurious kitchen.

For those of you outside the GTA, RBC also has an Avion Holiday Boutique in Metropolis at Metrotown in Burnaby, BC, as well as two kiosks with similar services in the Halifax Shopping Centre and St. Laurent Shopping Centre in Ottawa, opening November 25th. For more information, head over to RBC’s page.

Throughout the decadent night, we enjoyed the boutique as a homebase to get a head start on our Christmas shopping. Many of us got our purchases wrapped on the spot, partly for the convenience of it and partly so the gifts are already wrapped before we get home where sneaky family members can see them. For those of you who are not Avion cardholders, you can use the Avion Passport App to get access to the free gift wrapping service in the Toronto and Burnaby locations.

Now with Christmas music in my head and gifts piling up, I wish you a happy start to the holiday season!

  1. I love the Avion hiday boutique and attend every year. I’m just disappointed that it’s not held at Square one small in Mississauga this year for us west side GTA members. I hope it’s considered next year because getting to Yorkville, as I experienced last year took me 2 hours due to traffic. Not a pleasant experience to say the least and I couldn’t enjoy shopping at Yorkville because of the long trip. This will sadly be the first year I’ll be missing the Avion boutique and Christmas will not be the same. ❤️

    1. Aw that’s too bad to hear! I can relate, Yorkdale is far from me too and holiday traffic can be intense. Sorry to hear you won’t be able to enjoy the boutique this year! Happy holidays <3
