TORONTO AND MONTREAL, Sept. 9 /CNW/ – Attention shoppers! The success of
LOULOU’s 2009 block party program was undeniable—and we’ve made it even
bigger and better this year with deals of up to 45% off!

SHOP ‘TIL YOU DROP, an integrated shopping extravaganza from LOULOU
magazine and louloumagazine.com, is online now and goes live on the
streets of Toronto and Montreal on Sept. 29 and Sept. 30 respectively.

In effect until Oct. 8, SHOP ‘TIL YOU DROP offers exclusive daily VIP
web deals on the latest fall fashion, shoes, handbags, jewelry and
makeup—redeemable at stores across Canada. Plus, Kraft Thinsations is
also offering a contest with a $5,000 shopping spree grand prize.

Deep discounts at some of Canada’s favourite stores

During the Toronto and Montreal events, retail partners (including
BCBGMAXAZRIA, Jacob, Jean Coutu, Joe Fresh Style (in special pop-up
stores), Rogers and Winners) are offering the public substantial
discounts on NEW fall merchandise or gift with purchase.  In Toronto,
the party takes place on Bloor St. between Avenue Road and Yonge St. and
in Yorkville. Rogers Media’s Citytv will also be on the scene to cover
the festivities.

In Montreal, the celebration is on Ste. Catherine St. between Mountain
St. and McGill College Avenue.

In both cities, inside the stores, there will be refreshments,
samplings, demos, prizes, gift bags and entertainment. Other sponsors
will also open their doors to offer fabulous savings, too.

An annual event

“Our readers across the country loved our 2009 block party so much, we
just had to make it an annual event,” says LOULOU publisher Marie-José
Desmarais. “Just like us, our readers are passionate about shopping, and
SHOP ‘TIL YOU DROP is an exciting extension of our mandate at LOULOU to
help our readers get great deals on the hottest fashions and the latest
looks.”

There are even after-parties in both cities: Shoppers are invited to
rest their feet and show off all the great fashions they scored at Ciao
restaurant in Toronto’s Yorkville and Camp Restaurant-Bar on Montreal’s
Crescent St.

Last year, thousands of eager shoppers participated in the block parties
and online offerings, and the English and French websites received
almost a million page views.
