Business in Vancouver reports on the success of the outdoor mall near YVR:

McArthurGlen Group’s outlet mall near Vancouver International Airport has set a company record for traffic by recording its millionth visitor in only three months.
“Traffic has been well over our expectation, which would have been about 600,000 at this point,” mall general manager Robert Thurlow told Business in Vancouver October 1.

His company tracks how visitors arrive so he was able to estimate that 40% of the shoppers arrived on the Canada Line. Of the 60% who came in a vehicle, about 10% were from the U.S., said Thurlow, who has his staff do periodic counts of American licence plates in the parking lot.

I’d love to know if 40 percent by transit was also “well over expectation.”
