Located in beautiful Victoria, Mayfair Shopping Center is the primary shopping destination of Vancouver Island- not bad for what had started out as a strip mall.
With over 120 retailers, Mayfair Shopping Center looms over most other malls. With a comprehensive directory and it's famous Jewellers Clock, it's easy to think of wandering this building as exploring, rather than being lost.
The Clock, where parties plan to meet should they get separated, is a colorful piece of Victoria history.
Commissioned in 1910 as a response to a competitor's oversized timepiece, Shortt Hill & Duncan Limited owned this clock for several years before, after a series of name changes, it was eventually sold to the Shopping Center and remains a local site to the upcoming generation of shoppers.
