Welcome to The Driftwood Centre
on Beautiful Pender Islands

We have many great shops and services for all of your needs – the grocery store offers fresh meats, fish, produce, deli foods and more. The bakery cafe offers fresh baked goods, and breads and is open for lunch and breakfast. There is a well-stocked government liquor store, realty office, pharmacy, service station, post office, bank and an array of specialty shops. If it is a good book, fresh flowers, games for the kids or a frisbee for the disc golf course, you will find it here.

Driftwood Centre is taking as many precautions as possible to keep everyone safe and healthy 

If you have been out of the country, or not feeling well please, for the sake of everyone, stay home.

Please maintain a distance of 3 meters or 6 feet from the next person.
