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 total of four $2500 shopping sprees in Toronto.
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.
