Going to Vancouver
I will be visiting Vancouver soon,
where is a good place to buy badminton related stuff?
I need new raqckets - would the stores be cheaper than online stores?

Try the search for abbies sporting goods, Tad's, and Racquets and Runners in vancouver. Those threads will give you a good lead.

also try Clear One and Sports Expert/Sports Mart..sometimes they have discontinued models from name brands. Good luck

You're buying badminton related stuff in Canada? Isn't it cheaper back home?

As others have posted. You have Impluse Sports at Aberdeen Mall in Richmond, the various Sports Chek/Sports Mart, ClearOne Badminton Centre, the Hovel at the Vancouver Racquets Club, Abbies on Main/33rd, Tad's on Granville/72nd.
Give us a shout when you are here and we can help out more. BTW, if you interested in trying non-Yonex stuff, then Tad's probably have the best selection. You can also get SOTX stuff too (limited selection).

Where I live, there isnt any place to buy racquets or restring...
btw, I am unfamiliar with Vancouver, which shop would be closest to Port Coquitlam?
mm... off the topic, any good chinese/taiwanese restaurants in Vancouver anyone here can recommend that I must visit?

Almost all of them are nowhere near Port Coquitlam. Maybe there's a Sport Mart or Sport Chek around there somewhere, but don't bother if you're looking for high end stuff.

If you're a visitor, you can claim back the 7% PST tax. There're outlets in the Pacific Mall downtown, somewhere in Eaton's. I think you have to bring the goods there to show them plus the receipts.

Most of them carry top brands like Yonex, Gosen, BK, Winex, Victor, etc. You might want to consider compare the price case by case.

Here's the restaurant name/loc:

Do you guys know where I can get Yonex Jersey ? I have been to Tadz but no luck

I've seen some in the sporting goods store in Crystal Mall in Burnaby. I don't recall the exact prices but they are expensive -- maybe the higher end shirts.
