Metropolis at Metrotown is the largest shopping mall in British Columbia and the 2nd largest in all of Canada. Formerly known as Metrotown Center this mall is the home to over 380 stores and services.

Extremely convenient to public transit, it located adjacent to Metrotown SkyTrain Station on the Expo line and is also the location of the Metrotown Transit Exchange one of the largest bus loops in Burnaby. Metrotown Mall first opened in 1986, the same year that Vancouver's first SkyTrain opened. The SkyTrain Station proved to be a major catalyst for development in the area and the entire surrounding neighborhood has come to be called Metrotown.

Major stores at Metropolis include Sears, The Bay, Winners HomeSense, Home Outfitters, Chapters, Zara, Real Canadian Superstore, T & T Supermarket, and a Famous Players SilverCity Theatre. The mall's Food Court is the largest in Western Canada.

Metropolis at Metrotown is also right next to Station Square which features an additional 35 stores including Best Buy, Save-On-Foods and Famous Players Theatres (Most stores and the cinema at Station Square are currently closed to to a major expansion project that is taking place through 2013) as well as Crystal Mall, an Asian themed Mall with another 200 stores resulting in a mega shopping district of over 600 stores. There is also a Holiday Inn Express Hotel at the Mall offering moderately priced accommodations just steps from SkyTrain and a major bus loop.
