Pender Island offers everything that you’ll need for a comfortable stay

Our shops and stores are scattered throughout the island. Whether its food and wine, a good book, unique clothes and jewellery, toys & games, home decor, flowers, a hostess gift or a souvenir to take home, you will find it all in one of the four shopping areas mentioned below.

Sprinkled all over the island, are a number road side stands that offer local produce, fresh eggs, local lamb and more. In many places you will also find an “honour box” where you just leave your money for what you take. What else would you expect on Pender – “the friendly island”.


Driftwood Centre

The grocery store offers fresh meats, fish, produce, deli foods and more. There are even more food choices at the family restaurant and at the bakery cafe which offers fresh baked goods. Here at the Driftwood, there is a well stocked government liquor store, nails and pedicures salon, realty office, pharmacy, service station, post office, bank and an array of specialty shops. If it is a good book, fresh flowers, a gift, unique clothing, games for the kids or a frisbee for the disc golf course, you will find it here.
