The Old City Quarter is nestled in the heart of Nanaimo, just steps from the downtown core. Consisting of a collection of owner operated businesses, from specialty food stores to metaphysical treasures to wealth managers and chiropractors, the Old City Quarter oozes vibrancy and community.

Originally the economic centre of the city, the area is a charming mix of revitalized heritage buildings and thoughtful new development. It has become the number one destination for shopping in Nanaimo and a hub for doers and relaxers alike.
