Since then, Frigidaire has become one of the biggest large home appliance manufacturers in North America. Among the products that Frigidaire was the first to develop are refrigerator-freezer combinations with separate freezer sections. Even more important than their innovation, Frigidaire is primarily committed to designing high-performing, easy-to-use appliances that help you get the job done efficiently – freeing you up to do the things that you love most. Also, they currently have a massive sales event going on!</p><p><strong>Here are highlights from our Frigidaire Massive Sales Event! collection:</strong></p></div> <div style="background-color:#ccc;margin-left:70px;margin-right:70px;margin-top:30px;border:1px solid #ccc;"><span><a href="http://www.shop.ca/c/frigidaire-gallery-278-cu-ft-french-door-refrigerator-fghn2866pf-24315602" manual_cm_sp="Blog-_-Event-_-Frigidaire+Massive+Sales+Event!+Frigidaire+Gallery+French+Door+Refrigerator "><img src="http://img2.shopimg.ca/content/zoom/24315602_main_zoom.jpeg" style="width:250px;margin-right:30px;" /></a></span> <div style="height:250px;margin-right:30px;"><div style="padding-top:20px;margin-bottom:auto;"><p style="font-size:22px;font-weight:bold;font-family:Helvetica;color:#000000;margin:0px;">Frigidaire Gallery French Door Refrigerator </p> <p style="font-size:14px;font-weight:bold;font-family:Helvetica;color:#de011c;">Best Price – Now $200 Off!</p> <p style="font-size:14px;font-family:Helvetica;color:#575757;padding-left:20px;">Refrigerators – the very thing that got Frigidaire started.

Unfortunately, achieving that can often be difficult with everything going on in life – work, family, your neighbour’s renovations. Having a mattress that is less than satisfactory is not something anyone should have to deal with on top of everything else. It is time to do something for yourself, and get the sleep you need. Bassett Furniture, founded in 1902, is a great company that knows that you deserve a proper rest, and with their mattresses currently available on Shop.ca for the lowest prices ever in Canada, it is time to let them help you.</p> <p> <strong>Here are highlights from our Bassett Mattresses collection:</strong></p> </div> <div style="border:1px solid rgb(204, 204, 204);margin-top:30px;margin-right:70px;margin-left:70px;background-color:rgb(204, 204, 204);"> <span><a href="http://www.shop.ca/c/bassett " manual_cm_sp="Blog-_-Event-_-Bassett+Mattresses++True+to+Their+Principles+"><img src="http://img4.shopimg.ca/images/events/20140525/bassett1-EventsSUN_HP_20140525.jpg " style="width:250px;margin-right:30px;" /></a></span> <div style="height:250px;margin-right:30px;"> <div style="padding-top:20px;margin-bottom:auto;"> <p style="margin:0px;color:rgb(0, 0, 0);font-family:Helvetica;font-size:22px;font-weight:bold;"> True to Their Principles</p> <p style="color:rgb(87, 87, 87);padding-left:20px;font-family:Helvetica;font-size:14px;"> Since Bassett’s start, the company’s main principles are that great quality and stylish furniture does not need to be expensive, and it should be available to everyone. With over a century of experience and of staying true to these principles, Bassett mattresses are both affordable and of amazing quality.</p> <p style="color:rgb(87, 87, 87);padding-left:20px;font-family:Helvetica;font-size:14px;">  </p> <p style="color:rgb(0, 0, 0);font-family:Helvetica;font-size:12px;text-decoration:underline;"> <a href="http://www.shop.ca/c/bassett " manual_cm_sp="Blog-_-Event-_-Bassett+Mattresses++True+to+Their+Principles+" style="color:rgb(0, 0, 0);font-family:Helvetica;font-size:12px;text-decoration:none;">Shop Bassett Mattresses now! </a></p> <p>  </p> </div> </div> </div> <div style="border:1px solid rgb(204, 204, 204);margin-top:30px;margin-right:70px;margin-left:70px;background-color:rgb(204, 204, 204);"> <span><a href="http://www.shop.ca/c/bassett " manual_cm_sp="Blog-_-Event-_-Bassett+Mattresses++Community+Impact+"><img src="http://img4.shopimg.ca/images/blog-image-PARA3.jpg " style="width:250px;margin-right:30px;" /></a></span> <div style="height:250px;margin-right:30px;"> <div style="padding-top:20px;margin-bottom:auto;"> <p style="margin:0px;color:rgb(0, 0, 0);font-family:Helvetica;font-size:22px;font-weight:bold;"> Community Impact</p> <p style="color:rgb(87, 87, 87);padding-left:20px;font-family:Helvetica;font-size:14px;"> Bassett not only believes in good quality furniture at good prices, but in making a difference. Their efforts to help include creating fresh living spaces for organizations that serve the communities where Bassett lives, helping to implement various new programs to help the environment, and ensuring that they only work with suppliers who conduct themselves in a lawful and ethical manner – this includes providing safe working conditions, and treating workers with dignity and respect.</p> <p style="color:rgb(87, 87, 87);padding-left:20px;font-family:Helvetica;font-size:14px;">  </p> <p style="color:rgb(0, 0, 0);font-family:Helvetica;font-size:12px;text-decoration:underline;"> <a href="http://www.shop.ca/c/bassett " manual_cm_sp="Blog-_-Event-_-Bassett+Mattresses++Community+Impact+" style="color:rgb(0, 0, 0);font-family:Helvetica;font-size:12px;text-decoration:none;">Shop now</a></p> <p>  </p> </div> </div> </div> <div style="border:1px solid rgb(204, 204, 204);margin-top:30px;margin-right:70px;margin-left:70px;background-color:rgb(204, 204, 204);"> <span><a href="http://www.shop.ca/c/bassett " manual_cm_sp="Blog-_-Event-_-Bassett+Mattresses++Amazing+Quality+"><img src="http://img4.shopimg.ca/images/blog-image-PARA4.jpg " style="width:250px;margin-right:30px;" /></a></span> <div style="height:250px;margin-right:30px;"> <div style="padding-top:20px;margin-bottom:auto;"> <p style="margin:0px;color:rgb(0, 0, 0);font-family:Helvetica;font-size:22px;font-weight:bold;"> Amazing Quality</p> <p style="color:rgb(87, 87, 87);padding-left:20px;font-family:Helvetica;font-size:14px;"> Bassett does not compromise – they build furniture to last, not just to sell. They do not compromise, no matter what the product. For example, they know that making a sofa lighter isn’t worth it because that means using thin plywood, cheap foam that doesn’t support you well or feel very comfortable, and having very little supporting structure. This insistence on excellent quality doesn’t just apply to sofas, but to all their products (including mattresses!). You know that when you buy a Bassett mattress, you aren’t just letting yourself sleep well, you’re letting yourself sleep well every night for a very long time.</p> <p style="color:rgb(87, 87, 87);padding-left:20px;font-family:Helvetica;font-size:14px;">  </p> <p style="color:rgb(0, 0, 0);font-family:Helvetica;font-size:12px;text-decoration:underline;"> <a href="http://www.shop.ca/c/bassett " manual_cm_sp="Blog-_-Event-_-Bassett+Mattresses++Amazing+Quality+" style="color:rgb(0, 0, 0);font-family:Helvetica;font-size:12px;text-decoration:none;">Shop now </a></p> <p>  </p> </div> </div> </div> <div style="height:30px;">  </div> <div style="margin:0px auto 50px;width:50%;height:30px;text-align:center;padding-top:10px;font-family:Helvetica;font-size:20px;background-color:rgb(121, 173, 0);"> <a href="http://www.shop.ca/c/bassett " manual_cm_sp="Blog-_-Event-_-Bassett+Mattresses+" style="color:rgb(255, 255, 255);text-decoration:none;">Find your mattress now! ❯</a></div> <div style="height:30px;">  </div> </div> Blog:54a55c19-2b45-4126-ad08-afb159048755Post:3ec97d7e-e9c4-4771-9a92-06f7da4775af Cobra JumPack http://www.shop.ca/c/shop-blogs/cobra-jumpack Sat, 24 May 2014 05:00:00 GMT <div id="blogEntry" style="width:920px;margin:auto;background-color:#eee;"><div id="blogHeader" style="height:95px;background-color:#c3c3c3;"> <div id="blogTitle"><span><p style="font-size:30px;font-family:Helvetica;color:#000000;margin-top:auto;margin-bottom:auto;padding-left:20px;padding-top:12px;margin:0px;line-height:1.0em;">The Cobra JumPack<br />A versatile power pack that you can fit in your backpack! </p></span> </div> </div> <div id="blogHero" style="margin-left:70px;margin-right:70px;margin-top:20px;margin-bottom:20px;background color:#fff;"><img src="http://img4.shopimg.ca/images/blog-header-COBRA.jpg " style="width:780px;" /></div> <div id="blogIntroText" style="margin-left:70px;margin-right:70px;"><p style="font-size:12px;font-weight:normal;font-family:Helvetica;color:#000000;">Imagine that you’re camping during the off season. You have the campgrounds all to yourself and you have an incredible time. Unfortunately, when it is time to leave, you realize that you left your headlights on. Your car’s battery is dead, there’s no one else around, and, because it is one of those days, your cellphone died a couple of days back and there aren’t any outlets at the site. This is one of those impossible situations that no driver ever wants to be in. Luckily, Cobra – a company that designs and markets mobile communication and navigation products – has managed to ensure that this never has to happen to you through their creation of the JumPack MB Power Charger. </p><p><strong>Here are highlights from our The Cobra JumPack collection:</strong></p></div> <div style="background-color:#ccc;margin-left:70px;margin-right:70px;margin-top:30px;border:1px solid #ccc;"><span><a href="http://www.shop.ca/c/cobra-cpp7500c-jumpack-mb-power-charger-amp-usb-bil-24356668 " manual_cm_sp="Blog-_-Event-_-The+Cobra+JumPack+Jumpstarting+Your+Car+"><img src="https://www.cobra.com/sites/default/files/products/CPP7500_UNDERHOOD1.png" style="width:250px;margin-right:30px;" /></a></span> <div style="height:250px;margin-right:30px;"><div style="padding-top:20px;margin-bottom:auto;"><p style="font-size:22px;font-weight:bold;font-family:Helvetica;color:#000000;margin:0px;">Jumpstarting Your Car </p> <p style="font-size:14px;font-family:Helvetica;color:#575757;padding-left:20px;">The JumPack is, first and foremost, a jump starter. It has a starting current of 200A and a peak current of 400A, which means it has enough power to jump start most cars MULTIPLE TIMES on a single charge. Also, it can easily fit in a backpack, purse, or glove compartment, so you never need to worry about getting stuck somewhere because of a dead battery again. If a car isn’t your principle mode of transportation, that’s okay, it can be used to jump start motorcycles, boats, and snow mobiles as well. </p> <p style="font-size:14px;font-family:Helvetica;color:#575757;padding-left:20px;"><a href="http://www.shop.ca/c/cobra-cpp7500c-jumpack-mb-power-charger-amp-usb-bil-24356668 " manual_cm_sp="Blog-_-Event-_-The+Cobra+JumPack+Jumpstarting+Your+Car+" style="font-size:12px;font-family:Helvetica;color:#000000;text-decoration:none;"><p style="font-size:12px;font-family:Helvetica;color:#000000;text-decoration:underline;">Check It Out</p></a></p></div></div></div> <div style="background-color:#ccc;margin-left:70px;margin-right:70px;margin-top:30px;border:1px solid #ccc;"><span><a href="http://www.shop.ca/c/cobra-cpp7500c-jumpack-mb-power-charger-amp-usb-bil-24356668 " manual_cm_sp="Blog-_-Event-_-The+Cobra+JumPack+Charging+Your+Electronic+Devices+"><img src="https://www.cobra.com/sites/default/files/products/CPP7500_CONSOLE.png " style="width:250px;margin-right:30px;" /></a></span> <div style="height:250px;margin-right:30px;"><div style="padding-top:20px;margin-bottom:auto;"><p style="font-size:22px;font-weight:bold;font-family:Helvetica;color:#000000;margin:0px;">Charging Your Electronic Devices </p> <p style="font-size:14px;font-family:Helvetica;color:#575757;padding-left:20px;">Luckily, for most of us, our electronic devices die much more frequently than our car batteries. Unfortunately, this can also be frustrating and can sometimes happen at the least convenient times. The JumPack can help you here as well.

Whether you’re getting ready to finally open up your cottage for the summer, or spending a nice weekend at home, you know that this weekend is not only an opportunity to enjoy Canada’s beautiful outdoors once again – it’s the ‘unofficial start’ of the summer season! The season for patios, cottages, boating, and camping trips. The season for barbeques, hikes, and backyards. The season for so many of the things that Canadians love best, and we’re here to help you make sure that it and the weekend that kicks it off are as incredible as you know it can be!</p> <p> <strong>Here are highlights from our Get Long Weekend Ready collection:</strong></p> </div> <div style="border:1px solid rgb(204, 204, 204);margin-top:30px;margin-right:70px;margin-left:70px;background-color:rgb(204, 204, 204);"> <span><a href="http://www.shop.ca//SearchDisplay?sType=SimpleSearch&facet=mfName_ntk_cs%3A%22Napoleon%22&urlRequestType=Base&catalogId=10301&directoryTypeDisplay=brand&pageView=imageOnly&directoryQuery=mfName_ntk_cs%3A%22Napoleon%22&beginIndex=0&langId=-1&storeId=10201" manual_cm_sp="Blog-_-Event-_-Get+Long+Weekend+Ready+Napoleon"><img src="http://www.insideoutpatio.ca/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/pro500-lifestyle2_napoleon_grills.jpg" style="width:250px;margin-right:30px;" /></a></span> <div style="height:250px;margin-right:30px;"> <div style="padding-top:20px;margin-bottom:auto;"> <p style="margin:0px;color:rgb(0, 0, 0);font-family:Helvetica;font-size:22px;font-weight:bold;"> Napoleon</p> <p style="color:rgb(87, 87, 87);padding-left:20px;font-family:Helvetica;font-size:14px;"> What would May 2-4 be without some barbequing? Napoleon is a Canadian company that has a variety of grills and outdoor living products. Don’t know what type of grill to get? For a smoky flavour and some nostalgia, go for charcoal. If you have access to natural gas and plan on grilling often, then natural gas grills are an easy and inexpensive option. If you don’t have access to natural gas or you want something more portable, then aim for a propane burning grill. Napoleon sells all 3 types!</p> <p style="color:rgb(87, 87, 87);padding-left:20px;font-family:Helvetica;font-size:14px;">  </p> <p style="color:rgb(0, 0, 0);font-family:Helvetica;font-size:12px;text-decoration:underline;"> <a href="http://www.shop.ca//SearchDisplay?sType=SimpleSearch&facet=mfName_ntk_cs%3A%22Napoleon%22&urlRequestType=Base&catalogId=10301&directoryTypeDisplay=brand&pageView=imageOnly&directoryQuery=mfName_ntk_cs%3A%22Napoleon%22&beginIndex=0&langId=-1&storeId=10201" manual_cm_sp="Blog-_-Event-_-Get+Long+Weekend+Ready+Napoleon" style="color:rgb(0, 0, 0);font-family:Helvetica;font-size:12px;text-decoration:none;">Shop Napoleon</a></p> </div> </div> </div> <div style="border:1px solid rgb(204, 204, 204);margin-top:30px;margin-right:70px;margin-left:70px;background-color:rgb(204, 204, 204);"> <span><a href="http://www.shop.ca/c/kettler" manual_cm_sp="Blog-_-Event-_-Get+Long+Weekend+Ready+Kettler"><img src="http://www.kettlerusa.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/life-style.jpg " style="width:250px;margin-right:30px;" /></a></span> <div style="height:250px;margin-right:30px;"> <div style="padding-top:20px;margin-bottom:auto;"> <p style="margin:0px;color:rgb(0, 0, 0);font-family:Helvetica;font-size:22px;font-weight:bold;"> Kettler</p> <p style="color:rgb(87, 87, 87);padding-left:20px;font-family:Helvetica;font-size:14px;"> Sometimes it can be hard to get the kids out of the house, so a good bike or tricycle is a must. Not only will it help get the kids to enjoy the outdoors more, but it will keep them busy over the long weekend. Kettler is a furniture, fitness equipment, outdoor toy, and - most importantly – bicycle manufacturing company that was founded in 1949. Starting in Germany, it has since spread to over 60 countries around the world. Their bikes and outdoor toys are the perfect entertainment for kids!</p> <p style="color:rgb(87, 87, 87);padding-left:20px;font-family:Helvetica;font-size:14px;">  </p> <p style="color:rgb(0, 0, 0);font-family:Helvetica;font-size:12px;text-decoration:underline;"> <a href="http://www.shop.ca/c/kettler" manual_cm_sp="Blog-_-Event-_-Get+Long+Weekend+Ready+Kettler" style="color:rgb(0, 0, 0);font-family:Helvetica;font-size:12px;text-decoration:none;">Shop Kettler</a></p> </div> </div> </div> <div style="border:1px solid rgb(204, 204, 204);margin-top:30px;margin-right:70px;margin-left:70px;background-color:rgb(204, 204, 204);"> <span><a href="http://www.shop.ca/c/generation-line" manual_cm_sp="Blog-_-Event-_-Get+Long+Weekend+Ready+Generation+Line"><img src="http://www.swimcopools.com/images/crproducts_14.jpg " style="width:250px;margin-right:30px;" /></a></span> <div style="height:250px;margin-right:30px;"> <div style="padding-top:20px;margin-bottom:auto;"> <p style="margin:0px;color:rgb(0, 0, 0);font-family:Helvetica;font-size:22px;font-weight:bold;"> Generation Line</p> <p style="color:rgb(87, 87, 87);padding-left:20px;font-family:Helvetica;font-size:14px;"> Finally, what might be the most important part of any long weekend – relaxing. Whether you’re taking a break, catching up on reading, or just enjoying a drink with friends, good outdoor furniture is a must. The only thing that’s better than relaxing in an Adirondack chair is knowing that you’re being environmentally responsible while doing it! C.R.Plastic Products has been manufacturing beautiful outdoor furniture from recycled plastic since 1994. The use of recycled plastic helps to divert plastic away from landfills, and means that your furniture will never rot, splint, or crack!</p> <p style="color:rgb(87, 87, 87);padding-left:20px;font-family:Helvetica;font-size:14px;">  </p> <p style="color:rgb(0, 0, 0);font-family:Helvetica;font-size:12px;text-decoration:underline;"> <a href="http://www.shop.ca/c/generation-line" manual_cm_sp="Blog-_-Event-_-Get+Long+Weekend+Ready+Generation+Line" style="color:rgb(0, 0, 0);font-family:Helvetica;font-size:12px;text-decoration:none;">Shop Generation Line</a></p> </div> </div> </div> <div style="height:30px;">  </div> <div style="margin:0px auto 50px;width:50%;height:30px;text-align:center;padding-top:10px;font-family:Helvetica;font-size:20px;background-color:rgb(121, 173, 0);"> <a href="http://www.shop.ca/c/outdoor" manual_cm_sp="Blog-_-Event-_-Get+Long+Weekend+Ready" style="color:rgb(255, 255, 255);text-decoration:none;">Shop Long Weekend Essentials! ❯</a></div> <div style="height:30px;">  </div> </div> Blog:54a55c19-2b45-4126-ad08-afb159048755Post:4a28f0fe-ca93-4460-be56-4dd788f5c896 How to Buy a Stroller http://www.shop.ca/c/shop-blogs/buy-stroller Fri, 16 May 2014 05:00:00 GMT <div id="blogEntry" style="margin:auto;width:920px;background-color:rgb(238, 238, 238);"> <div id="blogHeader" style="height:95px;background-color:rgb(195, 195, 195);"> <div id="blogTitle"> <p style="margin:0px;color:rgb(0, 0, 0);line-height:1em;padding-top:12px;padding-left:20px;font-family:Helvetica;font-size:30px;"> <span>How to Buy a Stroller<br /> Author: Colleen Rodericks </span></p> </div> </div> <div id="blogHero" style="margin:20px 70px;"> <img src="http://img4.shopimg.ca/images/blog-header-STROLLER.jpg" style="width:780px;" /></div> <div id="blogIntroText" style="margin-right:70px;margin-left:70px;"> <p style="color:rgb(0, 0, 0);font-family:Helvetica;font-size:12px;font-weight:normal;"> Picking a stroller isn’t easy nor is it cheap. Just like a car, there are plenty of options. To figure out what makes sense for your family you will need to determine: your budget, features you want and how you will be using the stroller. Let’s take a dive into the differences between popular stroller styles.</p> <p> <strong>Read on to learn how to buy a stroller!</strong></p> </div> <div style="border:1px solid rgb(204, 204, 204);margin-top:30px;margin-right:70px;margin-left:70px;background-color:rgb(204, 204, 204);"> <span><a href="http://www.shop.ca/c/mountain-buggy-terrain-jogging-stroller-in-navy-MB2-T101300CAN-23461407 " manual_cm_sp="Blog-_-Event-_-How+to+Buy+a+Stroller++Three+Wheel+Jogger+"><img src="http://img2.shopimg.ca/content/zoom/23461407_main_zoom.jpeg" style="width:250px;margin-right:30px;" /></a></span> <div style="height:250px;margin-right:30px;"> <div style="padding-top:20px;margin-bottom:auto;"> <p style="margin:0px;color:rgb(0, 0, 0);font-family:Helvetica;font-size:22px;font-weight:bold;"> Three Wheel Jogger</p> <p style="color:rgb(87, 87, 87);padding-left:20px;font-family:Helvetica;font-size:14px;"> A three wheel stroller provides a lot of advantages for those who plan on using it as their main source of transportation or if you are an active outdoors family. A three wheel jogger will have larger rubber wheels that navigate well in uneven terrain and snow. Whether you plan on using it for exercising or for running errands, the narrow profile makes it easy to get in and out of stores. However, there are some disadvantages with this sporty model. Just like a bike tire, it requires maintenance. As well, a narrower frame can be less sturdy. So if you make sudden lateral movement it can tip over on its side.</p> <p style="color:rgb(87, 87, 87);padding-left:20px;font-family:Helvetica;font-size:14px;">  </p> <p style="color:rgb(0, 0, 0);font-family:Helvetica;font-size:12px;text-decoration:underline;"> <a href="http://www.shop.ca/c/mountain-buggy-terrain-jogging-stroller-in-navy-MB2-T101300CAN-23461407 " manual_cm_sp="Blog-_-Event-_-How+to+Buy+a+Stroller++Three+Wheel+Jogger+" style="color:rgb(0, 0, 0);font-family:Helvetica;font-size:12px;text-decoration:none;">Shop Three Wheel Joggers</a></p> </div> </div> </div> <div style="border:1px solid rgb(204, 204, 204);margin-top:30px;margin-right:70px;margin-left:70px;background-color:rgb(204, 204, 204);"> <span><a href="http://www.shop.ca/c/bugaboo-cameleon-c3-base-238110ZW01-22070961 " manual_cm_sp="Blog-_-Event-_-How+to+Buy+a+Stroller++Four+Wheel+with+Pram+"><img src="http://img3.shopimg.ca/content/zoom/22070961_main_zoom.jpeg" style="width:250px;margin-right:30px;" /></a></span> <div style="height:250px;margin-right:30px;"> <div style="padding-top:20px;margin-bottom:auto;"> <p style="margin:0px;color:rgb(0, 0, 0);font-family:Helvetica;font-size:22px;font-weight:bold;"> Four Wheel with Pram</p> <p style="color:rgb(87, 87, 87);padding-left:20px;font-family:Helvetica;font-size:14px;"> Four wheelers provide a stable base. The wider but shorter footprint makes it easy to manoeuvre around tight corners. It provides a comfortable ride for your baby if you are planning on walking a lot outside on the sidewalks. A four wheeler pram can grow with your baby. Once your baby gains neck control you can transition him/her into a seat which will last to preschool age. The disadvantage with the all-in-one stroller is that it takes up a lot of storage space and it is heavier in weight about 25 lbs. If you want a stroller that is light and easy to fold with one hand, this might not be the right option for you.</p> <p style="color:rgb(87, 87, 87);padding-left:20px;font-family:Helvetica;font-size:14px;">  </p> <p style="color:rgb(0, 0, 0);font-family:Helvetica;font-size:12px;text-decoration:underline;"> <a href="http://www.shop.ca/c/bugaboo-cameleon-c3-base-238110ZW01-22070961 " manual_cm_sp="Blog-_-Event-_-How+to+Buy+a+Stroller++Four+Wheel+with+Pram+" style="color:rgb(0, 0, 0);font-family:Helvetica;font-size:12px;text-decoration:none;">Shop Four Wheel Strollers</a></p> </div> </div> </div> <div style="border:1px solid rgb(204, 204, 204);margin-top:30px;margin-right:70px;margin-left:70px;background-color:rgb(204, 204, 204);"> <span><a href="http://www.shop.ca/c/mamas-papas-cruise-stroller-with-cup-holder-in-black-10392532-23474307 " manual_cm_sp="Blog-_-Event-_-How+to+Buy+a+Stroller++Light-Weight+Stroller+"><img src="http://img3.shopimg.ca/content/zoom/23474307_main_zoom.jpeg" style="width:250px;margin-right:30px;" /></a></span> <div style="height:250px;margin-right:30px;"> <div style="padding-top:20px;margin-bottom:auto;"> <p style="margin:0px;color:rgb(0, 0, 0);font-family:Helvetica;font-size:22px;font-weight:bold;"> Light-Weight Stroller</p> <p style="color:rgb(87, 87, 87);padding-left:20px;font-family:Helvetica;font-size:14px;"> Light-weight strollers can come in three or four wheels and they generally weigh less than 14 lbs. Most light weight strollers fall under the umbrella category. They take up very little storage space and they fold easily which makes it a breeze for travelling. The disadvantage with light weight strollers is that they are not meant for newborns or babies less than 3-6 months. As well, these strollers have a lower weight capacity which means your baby will grow out of it faster. Lastly, the small wheels don’t do well in snowy Canadian winters.</p> <p style="color:rgb(87, 87, 87);padding-left:20px;font-family:Helvetica;font-size:14px;">  </p> <p style="color:rgb(0, 0, 0);font-family:Helvetica;font-size:12px;text-decoration:underline;"> <a href="http://www.shop.ca/c/mamas-papas-cruise-stroller-with-cup-holder-in-black-10392532-23474307 " manual_cm_sp="Blog-_-Event-_-How+to+Buy+a+Stroller++Light-Weight+Stroller+" style="color:rgb(0, 0, 0);font-family:Helvetica;font-size:12px;text-decoration:none;">Shop Light-Weight Strollers</a></p> </div> </div> </div> <div style="height:30px;">  </div> <div style="margin:0px auto 50px;width:50%;height:30px;text-align:center;padding-top:10px;font-family:Helvetica;font-size:20px;background-color:rgb(121, 173, 0);"> <a href="http://www.shop.ca/c/sc/strollers-baby-joggers" manual_cm_sp="Blog-_-Event-_-How+to+Buy+a+Stroller+" style="color:rgb(255, 255, 255);text-decoration:none;">Shop Strollers & Baby Joggers! ❯</a></div> <div style="height:30px;">  </div> </div> Blog:54a55c19-2b45-4126-ad08-afb159048755Post:ca70a699-1b0a-4efd-ba1f-97e5d4891004 WeWOOD Watches http://www.shop.ca/c/shop-blogs/wewood-watches Wed, 07 May 2014 00:04:00 GMT <div id="blogEntry" style="margin:auto;width:920px;background-color:rgb(238, 238, 238);"> <div id="blogHeader" style="height:95px;background-color:rgb(195, 195, 195);"> <div id="blogTitle"> <p style="margin:0px;color:rgb(0, 0, 0);line-height:1em;padding-top:12px;padding-left:20px;font-family:Helvetica;font-size:30px;"> <span>WeWOOD Watches</span></p> </div> </div> <div id="blogHero" style="margin:20px 70px;"> <img src="http://img4.shopimg.ca/images/blog/blog-header-WOOD.jpg " style="width:780px;" /></div> <div id="blogIntroText" style="margin-right:70px;margin-left:70px;"> <p style="color:rgb(0, 0, 0);font-family:Helvetica;font-size:12px;font-weight:normal;"> In 2010, a newly-formed company with a vision to be both stylish and eco-friendly designed its first timepiece.

A great vacation starts with a good night’s sleep. Families with young children are sleep deprived. Juggling career and family life and then being constantly awoken in the middle of the night (by little people crawling into your bed) means a few hours at best. Getting eight hours of sleep seems like a distant memory. So this Mother’s Day, give your spouse a solid night of undisturbed rest. It’s a perfect way to start Mother’s Day off right. </p><p><strong>Here are highlights from our What Every Woman Wants for Mother’s Day collection:</strong></p></div> <div style="background-color:#ccc;margin-left:70px;margin-right:70px;margin-top:30px;border:1px solid #ccc;"><span><a href="http://www.shop.ca/p/mothers-day-pampered" manual_cm_sp="Blog-_-Event-_-What+Every+Woman+Wants+for+Mother’s+Day+Get+Your+Spouse+Relaxed+by+Lowering+Your+Bedroom+Temperature"><img src="http://img4.shopimg.ca/images/blog/blog-mom-2.jpg" style="width:250px;margin-right:30px;" /></a></span> <div style="height:250px;margin-right:30px;"><div style="padding-top:20px;margin-bottom:auto;"><p style="font-size:22px;font-weight:bold;font-family:Helvetica;color:#000000;margin:0px;">Get Your Spouse Relaxed by Lowering Your Bedroom Temperature</p> <p style="font-size:14px;font-family:Helvetica;color:#575757;padding-left:20px;">Keeping your bedroom nice and cool induces sleep. Before we doze off at night, our core body temperature drops off by 1 degree. Once this happens, signals are sent to the brain letting it know that it needs to secrete more melatonin (a hormone that regulates your sleep/wake cycles). By keeping your room temperature cooler during bedtime will help get you sleeping faster. Lower your thermostat as low as 15 to 19 degrees Celsius.</p> <p style="font-size:14px;font-family:Helvetica;color:#575757;padding-left:20px;"><a href="http://www.shop.ca/p/mothers-day-pampered" manual_cm_sp="Blog-_-Event-_-What+Every+Woman+Wants+for+Mother’s+Day+Get+Your+Spouse+Relaxed+by+Lowering+Your+Bedroom+Temperature" style="font-size:12px;font-family:Helvetica;color:#000000;text-decoration:none;"><p style="font-size:12px;font-family:Helvetica;color:#000000;text-decoration:underline;">Shop All Things Relaxing</p></a></p></div></div></div> <div style="background-color:#ccc;margin-left:70px;margin-right:70px;margin-top:30px;border:1px solid #ccc;"><span><a href="http://www.shop.ca/p/mothers-day-pampered" manual_cm_sp="Blog-_-Event-_-What+Every+Woman+Wants+for+Mother’s+Day+Cool+Crisp+Sheets"><img src="http://img4.shopimg.ca/images/blog/blog-mom-1.jpg" style="width:250px;margin-right:30px;" /></a></span> <div style="height:250px;margin-right:30px;"><div style="padding-top:20px;margin-bottom:auto;"><p style="font-size:22px;font-weight:bold;font-family:Helvetica;color:#000000;margin:0px;">Cool Crisp Sheets</p> <p style="font-size:14px;font-family:Helvetica;color:#575757;padding-left:20px;">Being surrounded by cool, crisp bedding and comfy pillows just sets the stage for you to unwind. When selecting bed sheets for the spring and summer months you will want to opt for 300 thread count (TC). The lower the thread count the cooler you will be because the weave is looser. To stay cool choose breathable fibers like 100% cotton or bamboo. (Conversely in the winter, do the opposite. Higher thread count provides more insulation.)</p> <p style="font-size:14px;font-family:Helvetica;color:#575757;padding-left:20px;"><a href="http://www.shop.ca/p/mothers-day-pampered" manual_cm_sp="Blog-_-Event-_-What+Every+Woman+Wants+for+Mother’s+Day+Cool+Crisp+Sheets" style="font-size:12px;font-family:Helvetica;color:#000000;text-decoration:none;"><p style="font-size:12px;font-family:Helvetica;color:#000000;text-decoration:underline;">Pamper Mom</p></a></p></div></div></div> <div style="background-color:#ccc;margin-left:70px;margin-right:70px;margin-top:30px;border:1px solid #ccc;"><span><a href="http://www.shop.ca/p/mothers-day-pampered" manual_cm_sp="Blog-_-Event-_-What+Every+Woman+Wants+for+Mother’s+Day+Zen+Out++"><img src="http://img4.shopimg.ca/images/blog/blog-mom-3.jpg" style="width:250px;margin-right:30px;" /></a></span> <div style="height:250px;margin-right:30px;"><div style="padding-top:20px;margin-bottom:auto;"><p style="font-size:22px;font-weight:bold;font-family:Helvetica;color:#000000;margin:0px;">Zen Out </p> <p style="font-size:14px;font-family:Helvetica;color:#575757;padding-left:20px;">To transition from full alertness to relaxation, give yourself an hour of decompression time. This means turning off all electronics including smart phones, tablets and TVs. If there is background noise it makes it harder to tune out. Lastly, put a few drops of lavender essential oil onto a tissue and tuck it into your pillow. Just like lowering your core temperature, the smell of lavender flower induces muscle relaxation and it will send you into a deeper slumber. </p> <p style="font-size:14px;font-family:Helvetica;color:#575757;padding-left:20px;"><a href="http://www.shop.ca/p/mothers-day-pampered" manual_cm_sp="Blog-_-Event-_-What+Every+Woman+Wants+for+Mother’s+Day+Zen+Out++" style="font-size:12px;font-family:Helvetica;color:#000000;text-decoration:none;"><p style="font-size:12px;font-family:Helvetica;color:#000000;text-decoration:underline;">Treat Mom</p></a></p></div></div></div> <div style="height:30px;"></div><a href="http://www.shop.ca/p/mothers-day-pampered" manual_cm_sp="Blog-_-Event-_-What+Every+Woman+Wants+for+Mother’s+Day" style="text-decoration:none;color:#ffffff;"><div style="width:50%;margin-top:0px;height:30px;margin-bottom:50px;background-color:#79ad00;margin-left:auto;margin-right:auto;font-size:20px;font-family:Helvetica;text-align:center;padding-top:10px;"> SHOP OUR MOTHER'S DAY GIFT GUIDE! ❯</div></a><div style="height:30px;"></div></div> Blog:54a55c19-2b45-4126-ad08-afb159048755Post:12afbf6b-15e7-46b8-8be2-d48533f5e138 How to Start a Garden http://www.shop.ca/c/shop-blogs/start-garden Mon, 05 May 2014 05:00:00 GMT <div id="blogEntry" style="margin:auto;width:920px;background-color:rgb(238, 238, 238);"> <div id="blogHeader" style="height:95px;background-color:rgb(195, 195, 195);"> <div id="blogTitle"> <p style="margin:0px;color:rgb(0, 0, 0);line-height:1em;padding-top:12px;padding-left:20px;font-family:Helvetica;font-size:30px;"> <span>How to Start a Garden<br /> Author: Colleen Rodericks </span></p> </div> </div> <div id="blogHero" style="margin:20px 70px;"> <img src="http://img4.shopimg.ca/images/blog/blog-header-garden.jpg " style="width:780px;" /></div> <div id="blogIntroText" style="margin-right:70px;margin-left:70px;"> <p style="color:rgb(0, 0, 0);font-family:Helvetica;font-size:12px;font-weight:normal;"> Just like anything else in life, starting a garden requires an investment in time and the proper tools. My first time gardening, I did everything a newbie would do. I bought plants and bulbs from a local big box store and threw everything into the soil. 50% of the plants died and the ones that made it were growing in all the wrong areas. My garden looked like an absolute mess. With tall flowers in the front and short flowers littered behind them. I was better off leaving my garden bare.

When she posted an image of one of her stand out outfits she would be wearing to a job interview, it marked the inception of the much-loved fashion blog with over a million followers today. She has now transformed her powerful presence on social media into many collaborations. The latest being her collaboration with Canadian eCommerce site, eLUXE. The 10-piece capsule collection features logo T-shirts and distressed sweatshirts emblazoned with slogans “Do Epic Chic” and “VoiLA.” All 10 pieces are now available on SHOP.CA!</p> <p> <strong>Here are highlights from our Song of Style For eLUXE collection:</strong></p> </div> <div style="border:1px solid rgb(204, 204, 204);margin-top:30px;margin-right:70px;margin-left:70px;background-color:rgb(204, 204, 204);"> <span><a href="http://www.shop.ca/c/song-of-style-for-eluxe" manual_cm_sp="Blog-_-Event-_-Presenting:+Song+of+Style+For+eLUXE+Why+eLUXE?"><img src="http://img4.shopimg.ca/images/blog/blog-image-frannie-2.jpg" style="width:250px;margin-right:30px;" /></a></span> <div style="height:250px;margin-right:30px;"> <div style="padding-top:20px;margin-bottom:auto;"> <p style="margin:0px;color:rgb(0, 0, 0);font-family:Helvetica;font-size:22px;font-weight:bold;"> Why eLUXE?</p> <p style="color:rgb(87, 87, 87);padding-left:20px;font-family:Helvetica;font-size:14px;"> For Song, what sealed the deal with the eLUXE collaboration was that she had always wanted to design, but did not have the means or team.

Drafted for his speed and tremendous offensive upside, Tyler was one of the Bruins most anticipated rookies in the last decade. Living up to the hype Tyler would make his NHL debut on October 9th 2010 and would score his first NHL goal the next night in Phoenix. During the 2011 NHL playoffs Tyler would become the first teenager since 1989 to record 4 points in a playoff game during his game 3 performance against the Tampa Bay Lightning. Tyler’s continued strong performance throughout the playoffs would help his team capture the Stanley Cup. Seguin, the club's leading scorer in the 2011-12 season at just 20 years old, signed a six-year contract extension with the Boston Bruins. The next season, Tyler once again played in the Stanley Cup Final. On July 4, 2013, the Boston Bruins traded Seguin to the Dallas Stars, where he is projected to be the teams first line center. Tyler is a fitness enthusiast and has spent his last two summers training with BioSteel Guru Matt Nichol. Tyler has been using the BioSteel line of products since his final junior season in Plymouth and hopes to once again reach the pinnacle of the hockey world.</p> <p> <strong>Here are highlights from our BioSteel collection:</strong></p> </div> <div style="border:1px solid rgb(204, 204, 204);margin-top:30px;margin-right:70px;margin-left:70px;background-color:rgb(204, 204, 204);"> <span><a href="http://www.shop.ca/c/biosteel-high-performance-sports-drink-whey-protein-isolate-chocolate-package-001-070-22409538 " manual_cm_sp="Blog-_-Event-_-Biosteel+Athlete+of+the+Week:+NHL+All-Star+Tyler+Seguin++BioSteel+High+Performance+Sports+Drink+&+Whey+Protein+Isolate+(Chocolate)+Package+"><img src="http://img1.shopimg.ca/content/zoom/22409538_main_zoom.jpeg" style="width:250px;margin-right:30px;" /></a></span> <div style="height:250px;margin-right:30px;"> <div style="padding-top:20px;margin-bottom:auto;"> <p style="margin:0px;color:rgb(0, 0, 0);font-family:Helvetica;font-size:22px;font-weight:bold;"> BioSteel High Performance Sports Drink & Whey Protein Isolate (Chocolate) Package</p> <p style="color:rgb(87, 87, 87);padding-left:20px;font-family:Helvetica;font-size:14px;"> Since training with BioSteel Guru Matt Nichol and using the BioSteel line of products, specifically BioSteel Sports High Performance Sports Drink, Tyler has noticed an accelerated workout and training performance.

In 2004 when leagues unveiled strict anti-doping testing, Matt knew it was time to take matters into his own hands. With his nutrition background and a team of reputable scientists, they formulated a safe and high caliber sports nutrition product which today has become the #1 purchased product in North America.</p> <p style="color:rgb(87, 87, 87);padding-left:20px;font-family:Helvetica;font-size:14px;">  </p> <p style="color:rgb(0, 0, 0);font-family:Helvetica;font-size:12px;text-decoration:underline;"> <a href="http://www.shop.ca/c/biosteel" manual_cm_sp="Blog-_-Event-_-Biosteel+Athlete+of+the+Week:+NHL+All-Star+Tyler+Seguin++History+of+BioSteel" style="color:rgb(0, 0, 0);font-family:Helvetica;font-size:12px;text-decoration:none;">Shop More BioSteel Here!</a></p> </div> </div> </div> <div style="border:1px solid rgb(204, 204, 204);margin-top:30px;margin-right:70px;margin-left:70px;background-color:rgb(204, 204, 204);"> <span><a href="http://www.shop.ca/c/biosteel" manual_cm_sp="Blog-_-Event-_-Biosteel+Athlete+of+the+Week:+NHL+All-Star+Tyler+Seguin++Informed+Choice+-+Trusted+By+Sport"><img src="https://encrypted-tbn2.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTnbWWivPe5RwYYLeQwhi4eWGqDKgpsj2nJekj_YsPYdYOmjTX_hw" style="width:250px;margin-right:30px;" /></a></span> <div style="height:250px;margin-right:30px;"> <div style="padding-top:20px;margin-bottom:auto;"> <p style="margin:0px;color:rgb(0, 0, 0);font-family:Helvetica;font-size:22px;font-weight:bold;"> Informed Choice - Trusted By Sport</p> <p style="color:rgb(87, 87, 87);padding-left:20px;font-family:Helvetica;font-size:14px;"> In 2007 the Informed-Choice program was established by HFL Sports Science, one of the world’s leading independent third party doping control laboratories that has been undertaking drug testing for sports since 1963.

After a highlight filled college career which included being named to the first team All-Pac 10 his junior year and being selected as a Cape Cod League All-Star in 2006, Brandon would spend only one season in the minor leagues before making his MLB debut. Brandon quickly justified his first round selection by setting a Mariners club record with 18 holds in his rookie season and in that same year he would record 18 and two thirds consecutive scoreless innings from April 20 to June 8.</p> <p>  </p> <p> In Brandon’s second year in the big leagues, he would take over as closer for the Mariners before making the transition to starter. In December 2009 Brandon was traded to the Toronto Blue Jays and in the following year Brandon became a mainstay on the Jays rotation. Since his first season in Toronto, Brandon has cemented himself as one of the game’s top starting pitchers and is now being relied upon more than ever from a Jays team poised to win it all.</p> <p>  </p> <p> BioSteel HPSD is now a permanent part of Brandon’s training and in-game regimen, making him a perfect match for Team BioSteel.</p> <p> <strong>Here are highlights from our Biosteel Athlete of the Week: Toronto Blue Jay Brandon Morrow collection:</strong></p> </div> <div style="background-color:#ccc;margin-left:70px;margin-right:70px;margin-top:30px;border:1px solid #ccc;"> <span><a href="http://www.shop.ca/c/biosteel-high-performance-sports-drink-two-drink-packets-tubes-2x14-001-011-011-22409533" manual_cm_sp="Blog-_-Event-_-Biosteel+Athlete+of+the+Week:+Toronto+Blue+Jay+Brandon+Morrow+BioSteel+High+Performance+Sports+Drink+&+Two+Drink+Packets+Tubes"><img src="http://img2.shopimg.ca/content/zoom/22409533_main_zoom.jpeg" style="width:250px;margin-right:30px;" /></a></span> <div style="height:250px;margin-right:30px;"> <div style="padding-top:20px;margin-bottom:auto;"> <p style="font-size:22px;font-weight:bold;font-family:Helvetica;color:#000000;margin:0px;"> BioSteel High Performance Sports Drink & Two Drink Packets Tubes</p> <p style="font-size:14px;font-weight:bold;font-family:Helvetica;color:#de011c;"> 10% off Now!</p> <p style="font-size:14px;font-family:Helvetica;color:#575757;padding-left:20px;"> As a Type I Diabetic, and after joining the Blue Jays, Brandon discovered the BioSteel High Performance Sports Drink and was amply impressed that he experienced no fluctuations in his blood-glucose levels.</p> <ul style="font-size:12px;font-weight:normal;font-family:Helvetica;color:#575757;padding-left:295px;"> <li> Allows for optimal concentration levels and sustained energy</li> <li> Decreases exercise-induced muscle breakdown in your body</li> <li> Helps stimulate muscle repair</li> </ul> <p style="font-size:12px;font-family:Helvetica;color:#000000;text-decoration:underline;"> <a href="http://www.shop.ca/c/biosteel-high-performance-sports-drink-two-drink-packets-tubes-2x14-001-011-011-22409533" manual_cm_sp="Blog-_-Event-_-Biosteel+Athlete+of+the+Week:+Toronto+Blue+Jay+Brandon+Morrow+BioSteel+High+Performance+Sports+Drink+&+Two+Drink+Packets+Tubes" style="font-size:12px;font-family:Helvetica;color:#000000;text-decoration:none;">Shop High Performance Sports Drinks Now!</a></p> </div> </div> </div> <div style="background-color:#ccc;margin-left:70px;margin-right:70px;margin-top:30px;border:1px solid #ccc;"> <span><a href="http://www.shop.ca/c/biosteel" manual_cm_sp="Blog-_-Event-_-Biosteel+Athlete+of+the+Week:+Toronto+Blue+Jay+Brandon+Morrow+History+of+BioSteel"><img src="http://img4.shopimg.ca/static/store/logo/2014/Feb/biosteel-201402111346.jpg" style="width:250px;margin-right:30px;" /></a></span> <div style="height:250px;margin-right:30px;"> <div style="padding-top:20px;margin-bottom:auto;"> <p style="font-size:22px;font-weight:bold;font-family:Helvetica;color:#000000;margin:0px;"> History of BioSteel</p> <p style="font-size:14px;font-family:Helvetica;color:#575757;padding-left:20px;"> While training NHL athletes, Matt Nichol (the founder of BioSteel) was becoming increasingly unsatisfied with the supplements the professional athletes he worked with were consuming, and was fearful they were doing more harm than good.

Gary played 21 seasons in the NHL for the Calgary Flames, Carolina Hurricanes, Toronto Maple Leafs, Florida Panthers, Pittsburgh Penguins and Tampa Bay Lightning. Drafted 12th overall by the Calgary Flames in the 1984 NHL entry draft, Gary helped the Calgary Flames win a Stanley Cup in 1989 and had continued success in Calgary until 1996 when a neck-injury forced him to sit out the entire 1996-1997 NHL season.</p> <p> Although most NHL analysts and doctors thought Gary would be forced to retire because of the injury, Gary proved them wrong. Through vigorous training and reconditioning, Gary returned to the NHL the following season and won the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy for perseverance and dedication to hockey. With a new found commitment to fitness, Gary played 12 more seasons in the NHL and finished his NHL career with 3 All-Star appearances, 438 goals and 910 points, and is one of only 250 players to have ever played 1000 games or more. Gary’s belief in the power of healthy eating and proper training earned him the reputation of being one of hockey’s top fitness gurus.</p> <p> Gary now spends his summers training NHL players, teaching them how to train and eat properly in order to achieve optimal results on the ice.

Early in his career Carey played in the WHL where he established himself as one of the top goaltending prospects and was taken with the fifth pick overall in the 2005 NHL entry draft by the Montreal Canadiens. In 2007 Carey would become the youngest player to ever be the Calder Cup MVP and was also the only goaltender in hockey history to be the CHL goaltender of the year, World Junior Championship tournament MVP (where he won a gold medal), and be the Calder Cup MVP. Carey would join the Canadiens in 2007 and finished his rookie season as the starting goalie while leading his team to the playoffs. Carey continues to improve his game and in 2010-2011 Carey would post 38 wins for the Canadiens, the most by a Canadiens goalie since the 1959-1960 season.</p> <p> While elevating his game on ice and in the gym, Carey has been using BioSteel products in order to ensure that he is receiving the best possible supplements available. Carey is considered one of the top goalies in the world and is the most relied upon player on his team.</p> <p> <strong>Here are highlights from our BE CANADIAN HOCKEY PROUD collection:</strong></p> </div> <div style="background-color:#ccc;margin-left:70px;margin-right:70px;margin-top:30px;border:1px solid #ccc;"> <span><a href="http://www.shop.ca/c/biosteel" manual_cm_sp="Blog-_-Event-_-BE+CANADIAN+HOCKEY+PROUD+Carey's+Favourite+Foods"><img src="http://biosteel.com/content/images/thumbs/0001269.jpeg" style="width:250px;margin-right:30px;" /></a></span> <div style="height:250px;margin-right:30px;"> <div style="padding-top:20px;margin-bottom:auto;"> <p style="font-size:22px;font-weight:bold;font-family:Helvetica;color:#000000;margin:0px;"> Carey's Favourite Foods</p> <p style="font-size:14px;font-weight:bold;font-family:Helvetica;color:#de011c;">  </p> <p style="font-size:14px;font-family:Helvetica;color:#575757;padding-left:20px;"> The Pro's use BIOSTEEL as part of a complete nutritional plan</p> <ul style="font-size:12px;font-weight:normal;font-family:Helvetica;color:#575757;padding-left:295px;"> <li> Mixed Green Salad</li> <li> Chicken</li> <li> Steak</li> </ul> <p style="font-size:14px;font-family:Helvetica;color:#575757;padding-left:20px;">  </p> <p style="font-size:12px;font-family:Helvetica;color:#000000;text-decoration:underline;">  </p> </div> </div> </div> <div style="background-color:#ccc;margin-left:70px;margin-right:70px;margin-top:30px;border:1px solid #ccc;"> <span><a href="http://www.shop.ca/c/biosteel" manual_cm_sp="Blog-_-Event-_-BE+CANADIAN+HOCKEY+PROUD+Carey+Takes+His+Training+As+Seriously+As+His+Diet"><img src="http://biosteel.com/content/images/thumbs/0001270.jpeg" style="width:250px;margin-right:30px;" /></a></span> <div style="height:250px;margin-right:30px;"> <div style="padding-top:20px;margin-bottom:auto;"> <p style="font-size:22px;font-weight:bold;font-family:Helvetica;color:#000000;margin:0px;"> Carey Takes His Training As Seriously As His Diet</p> <p style="font-size:14px;font-weight:bold;font-family:Helvetica;color:#de011c;">  </p> <p style="font-size:14px;font-family:Helvetica;color:#575757;padding-left:20px;"> Whether it's Plyo single leg front jumps, Medicine ball chest toss with a 4kg ball, Single arm kettlebell snatch, Single arm cable row, or many other exercises, Carey stays in Elite athletic top form with an array of efficient and well designed exercises.</p> <p> <a href="http://www.shop.ca/c/biosteel" manual_cm_sp="Blog-_-Event-_-BE+CANADIAN+HOCKEY+PROUD+Carey+Takes+His+Training+As+Seriously+As+His+Diet" style="font-family:Helvetica;color:rgb(0, 0, 0);text-decoration:none;">Check out What BIOSTEEL Product is right for you!</a></p> </div> </div> </div> <div style="background-color:#ccc;margin-left:70px;margin-right:70px;margin-top:30px;border:1px solid #ccc;"> <span><a href=" " manual_cm_sp="Blog-_-Event-_-BE+CANADIAN+HOCKEY+PROUD+Why+Was+BIOSTEEL+Created" rel="nofollow"><img src="https://encrypted-tbn2.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTY1RDDmCrI37XWT77ouCNj9-tF6YIuOI2V2bAyijwDVEZRI3W4" style="width:250px;margin-right:30px;" /></a></span> <div style="height:250px;margin-right:30px;"> <div style="padding-top:20px;margin-bottom:auto;"> <p style="font-size:22px;font-weight:bold;font-family:Helvetica;color:#000000;margin:0px;"> Why Was BIOSTEEL Created</p> <p style="font-size:14px;font-weight:bold;font-family:Helvetica;color:#de011c;">  </p> <p style="font-size:14px;font-family:Helvetica;color:#575757;padding-left:20px;"> While training NHL athletes, Matt Nichol (the founder of BIOSTEEL) was becoming increasingly unsatisfied with the supplements the professional athletes he worked with were consuming, and was fearful they were doing more harm than good. In 2004 when leagues unveiled strict anti-doping testing, Matt knew it was time to take matters into his own hands.

Following the catastrophic events that shook the world in the first two games, Delsin’s super-powered status as a Conduit is laid bare after exposure to other superhumans. Delsin can absorb the powers of others, and then employ them for his own devices.<img align="left" alt="inFAMOUS Second Son Canada" src="http://cdn.us.playstation.com/pscomauth/groups/public/documents/webasset/ infamous_mid_img9.jpg" style="padding-right:20px;padding-bottom:10px;padding-top:10px;" />This third-person, superhero action game has fluid animations and sharp bursts of light around every rain-soaked corner. The game starts, by joining Delsin and his cop brother, Reggie as they attempt to pass through a Department of Unified Protection (DUP) security checkpoint. </span></span> <span style="background-color:transparent;color:rgb(0, 0, 0);font-family:Arial;font-size:15px;white-space:pre-wrap;">Sure enough, Delsin’s spectacular abilities trigger an automated warning at the checkpoint, and the DUP descends upon him with rifles ready. This is where the first playable section of Second Son begins.</span> <img align="right" alt="inFAMOUS Second Son" src="http://cdn.us.playstation.com/pscomauth/groups/public/documents/webasset/ infamous_mid_img6.jpg" style="padding-left:20px;padding-top:50px;" /><br /> <br /> <span style="background-color:transparent;color:rgb(0, 0, 0);font-family:Arial;font-size:15px;line-height:1.15;white-space:pre-wrap;">The first power on display is smoke, which gives Delsin some great ways to move around. Our hero can burst apart into gouts of red and black, whipping right through obstacles and towards targets. All it takes is a press of the Circle button, but the momentum this move generates is exhilarating and practical, providing Delsin with much needed control of the battle space. Like past inFAMOUS games, Delsin can also leap up onto cars and launch off of them with more inky explosions, gaining additional height and tactical options. Explosions add power to Delsin’s smoke abilities — just as they do for Cole’s. By standing near a ruined car or fire that’s belching smoke, Delsin can absorb it into himself for some extra super juice. It doesn't get much better than that!</span><br /> <br /> <span style="background-color:transparent;color:rgb(0, 0, 0);font-family:Arial;font-size:15px;white-space:pre-wrap;line-height:1.15;">Our hero, Delsin, can drain the humming charge of neon signs and take on those powers for himself. Delsin’s blast turns into a bright streak of light, and his new neon, dash cam send him flashing up the sides of walls in a simply wild array of colour.</span><br /> <br /> <span style="background-color:transparent;color:rgb(0, 0, 0);font-family:Arial;font-size:15px;white-space:pre-wrap;line-height:1.15;">inFAMOUS Second Son looks and plays like as well as you would expect, and simply makes the wait for Delsin’s story all the harder to bear.</span><br /> <br /> <iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="259" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/Uibnf_Q_51s" width="460"></iframe><br /> <br /> <a href="http://www.shop.ca/c/pre-order-sony-ps4-infamous-second-son-limited-edition-release- date-march-21-2014-711719039655-23735374" manual_cm_sp="Blog-_-Link-_-inFAMOUS Second Son" style="color:#de011c;font-size:15px;" title="Buy inFAMOUS Second Son in Canada at SHOP.CA"><img alt="Buy inFAMOUS Second Son in Canada" src="https://social2.shop.ca/ver1.0/Content/images/store/10/13/3ac03e8c-bbbd-4683-9d04- 00fb7efe7770.Large.png?1" /></a></div> Blog:54a55c19-2b45-4126-ad08-afb159048755Post:5c2844ac-7c0c-4cac-9e8f-d106fcb14698 Otterbox Waterproof cases for your smart phone! http://www.shop.ca/c/shop-blogs/otterbox-waterproof-cases-smart-phone Fri, 24 Jan 2014 22:09:35 GMT <p dir="ltr" style="line-height:1.15;margin-top:0pt;margin-bottom:0pt;"> <span id="docs-internal-guid-50ab9038-c5d1-d4ec-4cf3-b42dc843a8d5"><span style="font-size:15px;font-family:Arial;color:rgb(0, 0, 0);background-color:transparent;vertical-align:baseline;white-space:pre-wrap;">Have you ever dropped your phone in the toilet?

With many years of experience, they have everything you would want for your computer-related needs. It’s been tried, tested, and true, that HP would not disappoint.</p> <br /> <p style="font-size:14px;font-family:Arial;color:#000000;padding-left:20px;"> HP focuses their attention to the users ability to always be connected. They emphasize on connectivity in a different manner – they want their users to be able to fully express themselves in the manner that they want to, and for the receivers to be able to experience it in its full capacity.</p> <br /> <p style="font-size:14px;font-family:Arial;color:#000000;padding-left:20px;"> It’s about customizable experience, and with HP, they give you the tools to be able to do that.</p> <br /> <p style="font-size:14px;font-family:Arial;color:#000000;padding-left:20px;"> Staying connected has never been easier!</p> </div> Blog:54a55c19-2b45-4126-ad08-afb159048755Post:0f7ca053-0381-4699-bf95-855893deb46b X-Mini http://www.shop.ca/c/shop-blogs/x-mini Sat, 31 Aug 2013 00:55:00 GMT <div style="min-height:110px;background-color:#bbb;"> <span> <p style="font-size:30px;font-family:Arial;color:#000000;margin-top:auto;margin-bottom:auto;padding-left:20px;padding-top:15px;margin:0px;line-height:0.8em;">X-Mini</p> <p style="font-size:20px;font-family:Arial;color:#000000;margin-top:auto;margin-bottom:auto;padding-left:20px;margin:0px;">Small Size, Big Sound!</p> </span> <span> <p style="font-family:helvetica, geneva, sans serif;font-size:12px;color:#000000;font-weight:normal;text-decoration:none;margin-left:10px;text-align:left;padding-left:20px;margin:0px;"> </p> </span> </div> <div style="background-color:#ddd;min-height:250px;"> <img src="http://img4.shopimg.ca/images/events/brandBlogs/brandBlurb_XMINI.jpg" style="margin:20px;width:200px;" align="left" /> <p style="font-size:14px;font-family:Arial;color:#000000;padding-top:20px;padding-left:20px;">Don’t let the size of the X-Mini speakers deceive you. Though they are small and light, they produce a sound a lot louder than you would expect. They also come in different colours with a wide variety of features, such as Bluetooth pairing. </p><br /> <p style="font-size:14px;font-family:Arial;color:#000000;padding-left:20px;"> It is the perfect companion for a trip to the beach, where you might want to listen to some music from you phone as you lay in the sun. Also, it’s very convenient to have the X-Mini when you’re trying to watch a movie from your laptop (we all know the sound isn’t always the loudest). </p><br /> <p style="font-size:14px;font-family:Arial;color:#000000;padding-left:20px;"> It has won various awards its innovative design – for there’s nothing that comes close to this on the market right now. It’s a fun device with fun colours and a fun size; it would surely deliver lots of fun! </p><br /> </div> Blog:54a55c19-2b45-4126-ad08-afb159048755Post:2025a58d-df98-4c13-81a2-19808d8e78f8 Moose Knuckles http://www.shop.ca/c/shop-blogs/moose-knuckles Sat, 31 Aug 2013 00:55:00 GMT <div style="min-height:110px;background-color:#bbb;"> <span> <p style="font-size:30px;font-family:Arial;color:#000000;margin-top:auto;margin-bottom:auto;padding-left:20px;padding-top:15px;margin:0px;line-height:0.8em;">Moose Knuckles.</p> <p style="font-size:30px;font-family:Arial;color:#000000;margin-top:auto;margin-bottom:auto;padding-left:20px;margin:0px;">Find the Spirit of Canada</p> </span> <span> <p style="font-family:helvetica, geneva, sans serif;font-size:12px;color:#000000;font-weight:normal;text-decoration:none;margin-left:10px;text-align:left;padding-left:20px;margin:0px;"> </p> </span> </div> <div style="background-color:#ddd;min-height:250px;"> <img src="http://img4.shopimg.ca/images/events/brandBlogs/brandBlurb_knuckles.jpg" style="margin:20px;width:200px;" align="left" /> <p style="font-size:14px;font-family:Arial;color:#000000;padding-top:20px;padding-left:20px;">This Made-In-Canada brand embodies the spirit of the young people in Canada – real, hands-on, risk-taking, daring, and fun. The Ryerson graduates, Will Poho and Mark Peros, targets their audience with humour and sex appeal (note the name of the company!) </p><br /> <p style="font-size:14px;font-family:Arial;color:#000000;padding-left:20px;"> The pair had initially only manufactured 50 jackets per year, but eventually, it became so popular, that they even sold the ones off their backs! It is the perfect jacket to go engage in all sorts of fun activities in the cold – skiing, skating, dogsledding, you get the point. </p><br /> <p style="font-size:14px;font-family:Arial;color:#000000;padding-left:20px;"> Though many other brands focus on Canadian traditions (such as the cold, ruggedness, lakes and mountains), Moose Knuckles wants to bring out the other side of Canada, which is hockey, comedy and fighting, because we’re ‘tough’. These jackets were designed to keep you warm, without making you look super bulky, letting you stay stylish, even in the frigid winters. </p><br /> <p style="font-size:14px;font-family:Arial;color:#000000;padding-left:20px;"> With Moose Knuckle jackets being seen everywhere on the streets, it looks like this is a brand here to stay. </p><br /> </div> Blog:54a55c19-2b45-4126-ad08-afb159048755Post:f50480e8-5ada-4f3a-b121-f6eff5f40b9b Kitchen Aid http://www.shop.ca/c/shop-blogs/kitchen-aid Sat, 31 Aug 2013 00:10:00 GMT <div style="min-height:110px;background-color:#bbb;"> <span> <p style="font-size:30px;font-family:Arial;color:#000000;margin-top:auto;margin-bottom:auto;padding-left:20px;padding-top:15px;margin:0px;line-height:0.8em;">Kitchen Aid</p> <p style="font-size:20px;font-family:Arial;color:#000000;margin-top:auto;margin-bottom:auto;padding-left:20px;margin:0px;">Premier Kitchens</p> </span> <span> <p style="font-family:helvetica, geneva, sans serif;font-size:12px;color:#000000;font-weight:normal;text-decoration:none;margin-left:10px;text-align:left;padding-left:20px;margin:0px;"> </p> </span> </div> <div style="background-color:#ddd;min-height:250px;"> <img src="http://img4.shopimg.ca/images/events/brandBlogs/brandBlurb_kitchenaid.jpg" style="margin:20px;width:200px;" align="left" /> <p style="font-size:14px;font-family:Arial;color:#000000;padding-top:20px;padding-left:20px;">Kitchen Aid is one of the premier brands when it comes to all things related to the kitchen. </p><br /> <p style="font-size:14px;font-family:Arial;color:#000000;padding-left:20px;"> It started with making just a stand mixer, and from there, expanded to making many kinds of appliances and accessories to help make the cooking experience every more wonderful. </p><br /> <p style="font-size:14px;font-family:Arial;color:#000000;padding-left:20px;"> Whether you are a professional baker looking for that industrious mixer to help fill all your orders, or the everyday homemaker looking for a reliable stove – Kitchen Aid has had Canadians covered since 1919. </p><br /> </div> Blog:54a55c19-2b45-4126-ad08-afb159048755Post:7a7ef151-7bfb-4321-ad0c-dd927bf8447c Sperry http://www.shop.ca/c/shop-blogs/sperry Sat, 31 Aug 2013 00:06:00 GMT <div style="min-height:110px;background-color:#bbb;"> <span> <p style="font-size:30px;font-family:Arial;color:#000000;margin-top:auto;margin-bottom:auto;padding-left:20px;padding-top:15px;margin:0px;line-height:0.8em;">Sperry.</p> <p style="font-size:30px;font-family:Arial;color:#000000;margin-top:auto;margin-bottom:auto;padding-left:20px;margin:0px;">Discover the Classics</p> </span> <span> <p style="font-family:helvetica, geneva, sans serif;font-size:12px;color:#000000;font-weight:normal;text-decoration:none;margin-left:10px;text-align:left;padding-left:20px;margin:0px;"> </p> </span> </div> <div style="background-color:#ddd;min-height:250px;"> <img src="http://img4.shopimg.ca/images/events/brandBlogs/brandBlurb_sperry.jpg" style="margin:20px;width:200px;" align="left" /> <p style="font-size:14px;font-family:Arial;color:#000000;padding-top:20px;padding-left:20px;">When it comes to boat shoes, the one brand that comes to mind is Sperry Topsiders, or just Sperry. Why is that not surprising? </p><br /> <p style="font-size:14px;font-family:Arial;color:#000000;padding-left:20px;"> Well, for one, Paul Sperry is the pioneer inventor of the boat shoe. As a former navy officer, he was an avid sailor who wanted to find a way to navigate the slippery dock of his boat without falling. </p><br /> <p style="font-size:14px;font-family:Arial;color:#000000;padding-left:20px;"> On an icy morning, Sperry watched in amazement as his dog ran across the landscape without a single fall. This was his inspiration for creating the shoes. </p><br /> <p style="font-size:14px;font-family:Arial;color:#000000;padding-left:20px;"> Now, boat shoes are used for more than just an anti-slip shoe on deck, it is the shoe that is not only super comfortable, but it is also stylish enough be worn with almost everything. </p><br /> </div> Blog:54a55c19-2b45-4126-ad08-afb159048755Post:d766f889-8c73-4ae6-96aa-37ff03eec2cc My Summer at SHOP.CA http://www.shop.ca/c/shop-blogs/summer-shopca Fri, 30 Aug 2013 22:20:00 GMT <p style="text-align:center;"> <img alt="Shop Logo - SQUARE - WHITE BACKGROUND" class="size-full wp-image-896 aligncenter" height="560" src="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/08/2013-06-13-17-11-51.jpg" width="560" /></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <br /> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">A little over three months ago, I had received an email requesting an interview. At first, I was a little shocked because I had sent in my resume for at least a month and hadn't heard anything. Needless to say, two weeks later, it was my first day at SHOP.CA</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">What were thoughts on my first few weeks at SHOP.CA? Well, for one, the people are really nice, definitely very friendly environment. We had four birthdays or so in a week, and we have not one but two cakes every single birthday. People are passionate and are dedicated in what they do - the amount of hours spent in working on a single project is truly impressive.</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">It's kind of like a big group of friends working together - it can be very fun, but serious when it needs to be. And people like to share (because sharing is caring!). People love to share CHIPS! The office favourite would definitely be Cheetos! (Just a fun fact!)</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">Personally, I feel like I've learned a lot. Being part of the Customer Loyalty Team, I have never realized some of the challenges that come with the position. And of course, sometimes you get rather difficult people to deal with, but the members of our CLT could always keep their cool and deal with the situation in a rather calmly manner. Also, I had a chance to take on SHOP.CA's blog and Pinterest (check it out <a href="www.pinterest.com/shopdotca" rel="nofollow">here</a>) which was pretty fun.</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">It's been a really wonderful three months here, it's a little bittersweet to have to leave, but I can truly say that SHOP.CA has a lot to offer and is definitely one of the best companies out there!    </span></p> Blog:54a55c19-2b45-4126-ad08-afb159048755Post:9afc0ad9-cba0-400b-b5d9-ea75cc21037e _ http://www.shop.ca/c/shop-blogs/- Fri, 30 Aug 2013 22:01:00 GMT <div> <div style="background-color:#C3C3C3;padding-left:15px;font-size:60px;font-weight:bold;"> Welcome To SHOP.CA </div> <div class="clearfix" style="background-color:#EEEEEE;"> <div style="width:25%;text-align:center;"> <img src="image.jpg" style="height:200px;width:200px;" /> </div> <div style="width:75%;"> Welcome! </div> </div> </div> Blog:54a55c19-2b45-4126-ad08-afb159048755Post:eacf90a0-0f8a-4cc2-bca5-d6551a64b058 Aug 29 - Customer Feedback http://www.shop.ca/c/shop-blogs/aug-29-customer-feedback Thu, 29 Aug 2013 18:58:00 GMT <p> <span style="font-family:arial, sans-serif;font-size:13px;">Another great week of customer feedback for us to celebrate!</span></p> <div style="font-family:arial, sans-serif;font-size:13px;">  </div> <div style="font-family:arial, sans-serif;font-size:13px;"> "H<span style="font-family:arial, sans, sans-serif;">ave now received both the Spice Rack and the Ice Cream Maker.

More often than not, we are guilty of wasting precious resources. That is why here at SHOP.CA, we encourage all of our customers to dispose of and recycle all packaging waste properly in the ultimate quest to go green!</span></p> <div style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">For instance, think about your first reaction when you receive a package in the mail. You run to the front door, sign for the package, grab a knife (or your sharpest fingernail) and rip the box open. Once you have retrieved your item from inside the package, you probably throw the whole mess - foam peanuts included - straight into the garbage can and move on with your life, never to give it a second thought.</span></div> <div style="text-align:center;">  </div> <div style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">Coming from one of the most naturally beautiful countries on Earth, we feel it is our duty to cut down our carbon footprint and do whatever we can to fight climate change. Despite public knowledge, there are many things you can do to make a difference in your community including taking advantage of our highly-developed recycling programs across the country. That means taking the extra minute to sort and dispose of cardboard, packing slips, paper, and plastic packaging used to get your products from SHOP.CA to your home in one piece.</span></div> <div style="text-align:center;"> <br /> <a href="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/08/lake-louise-canoes.jpg" rel="nofollow"><img alt="lake louise canoes" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-887" height="333" src="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/08/lake-louise-canoes.jpg" width="500" /></a></div> <div style="text-align:center;">  </div> <div style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">As we develop and grow as a company, we want our customers to join the ride and help us in making SHOP.CA great for both Canadians and the majestic land that sustains us. With that being said, here are a few interesting facts to tickle your brains:</span></div> <div style="text-align:center;">  </div> <div style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">1. Recycling one tonne of paper you save: 17 trees, 6953 gallons of water, 463 gallons of oil, 583 pounds of air pollution.</span></div> <div style="text-align:center;">  </div> <div style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">2. By the age of 6 months, the average Canadian has consumed the same amount of resources as the average person in the developing world consumes in a lifetime.</span></div> <div style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;"> </span></div> <div style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">3. Approximately 35% of municipal solid waste is packaging.</span></span></div> <div style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;"> </span></div> <div style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">4. The average North American will throw away 600 times their adult weight in garbage over the course of their lifetime.</span></span></div> <div style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;"> </span></div> <div style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">5. 70% of landfill waste could be either reused or recycled.</span></span></div> <div style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;"> </span></div> <div style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">On that note, it is obvious that as a nation we have a ton of work to do and we need your help to change these statistics and make our dream a reality. The time has come to step up and make a difference for your country as we blaze the trail towards a sustainable future.<br />  </span></span></div> <div style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;"><span style="color:rgb(51, 51, 51);">GO GREEN today and help SHOP.CA to become Canada's Number One Online Shopping Destination!

The brand had a strong connection to the Manchester music scene, as well as the underground explosion in the 90s, and it was voted one of the coolest streetwear brand by the 2007-2008 CoolBrands panel.</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">Bench has all the fall staples you need - t's, jeans, sweaters... everything you need to look super cool for that first day back.</span></span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">Bench has always been inspired by the individuality of real people, builds its collections around that, and keeping it real.</span></span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;"><a href="http://www.shop.ca/c/bench-store" manual_cm_sp="Blog-_-Link-_-bench+store" rel="nofollow" style="color:#2E9AFE;" target="_blank"><font size="3">Check out the merch here</font></a></span></p> Blog:54a55c19-2b45-4126-ad08-afb159048755Post:e12338ed-9eb0-4374-9cfc-f5f4dd4fb886 Stay Hydrated the Smart Way! http://www.shop.ca/c/shop-blogs/stay-hydrated-smart-way Fri, 09 Aug 2013 23:12:00 GMT <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;"><img alt="Screen shot 2013-08-09 at 2.53.15 PM" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-861" height="223" src="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/08/screen-shot-2013-08-09-at-2-53-15-pm.png" width="394" /></span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">Water is one of the most important components to life. All living things need it to grow and sustain life, and as humans, 50 - 65% of our body is made up of water.</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">Lucky for us, water is easily accessible in Canada (it also helps that most of the world's fresh water belongs to us). If we wanted to, we could simply turn on the tap and drink the water that flows from it. We have one of the best tasting and cleanest tap waters in the world (yes, we have won awards for this).</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">So, if you think about it, isn't it a little strange that we drink so many bottles of water that are imported from elsewhere?</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">Did you know that there are actually quite a number of externalities when it comes to bottled water?</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <img alt="Screen shot 2013-08-09 at 3.19.24 PM" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-862" height="307" src="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/08/screen-shot-2013-08-09-at-3-19-24-pm.png" width="461" /></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">First off, it leaves a pretty big footprint on the environment. So many of our landfills are filled with plastic bottles. Also, in contrast to tap water, which is distributed through an energy-efficient infrastructure, transporting bottled water long distances involves burning massive quantities of fossil fuels. Nearly a quarter of all bottled water crosses national borders to reach consumers, transported by boat, train, and truck.</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">Re-using these bottles are highly discouraged - they are meant to be single-use bottles, otherwise, there are risks you take on by drinking from these.</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">So, if bottled water isn't so good and tap water is, what you should do is ...</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <img alt="Screen shot 2013-08-09 at 3.32.47 PM" class="alignnone size-large wp-image-863" height="311" src="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/08/screen-shot-2013-08-09-at-3-32-47-pm.png?w=560" width="560" /></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">Join the REFILL not LANDFILL movement! Refill your water bottles with great Canadian tap water instead of filling up the landfills with plastic bottles.</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">Water bottles are so much safer to re-use (think toxins released) and you'll save so much money from not buying bottled water (imagine all those toonies and loonies that could've been saved and used for something else!)</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">These Nalgene water bottles are a great option. They come in a variety of sizes, colours and best of all, they can withstand a lot. These are not only super sturdy, but they're also good with being leakproof. The lids are attached, so you'll never misplace it.</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">Another great thing about Nalgene bottles compared to other ones, is that they are smell-proof (I'm sure you've experienced horrible smelling bottles after not washing it for 2 days or so), they have ones with big mouths, so you can put ice in your beverages on a hot summer's day. And they're good with warm beverages too.</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">And that's all you really need to stay hydrated the smart way!</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <a href="http://www.shop.ca/c/nalgene#http%3A%2F%2Fwww.shop.ca%2Fwebapp%2Fwcs%2Fstores%2Fservlet%2FAjaxCatalogSearchResultView%3FsearchTermScope%3D%26searchType%3D1000%26filterTerm%3D%26orderBy%3D6%26maxPrice%3D%26showResultsPage%3Dtrue%26langId%3D-1%26beginIndex%3D0%26sType%3DSimpleSearch%26metaData%3DbWZOYW1lX250a19jczoiTmFsZ2VuZSI%253D%26pageSize%3D%26manufacturer%3D%26resultCatEntryType%3D%26catalogId%3D10301%26pageView%3DimageOnly%26searchTerm%3D%26minPrice%3D%26categoryId%3D%26directoryQuery%3DmfName_ntk_cs%253A%2522Nalgene%2522%26directoryTypeDisplay%3Dbrand%26storeId%3D10201%26identifier%3D1376080328047" manual_cm_sp="Blog-_-Link-_-nalgene+bottles" rel="nofollow" style="color:#2E9AFE;" target="_blank"><font size="3">Check these bottles out here!</font></a></p> Blog:54a55c19-2b45-4126-ad08-afb159048755Post:1afa0a8b-3952-4ea1-93e7-9c9f4055cf53 The Little White Dress http://www.shop.ca/c/shop-blogs/little-white-dress Thu, 08 Aug 2013 23:32:00 GMT <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;"><img alt="lwd" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-853" height="364" src="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/08/lwd.png" width="493" /></span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">This year, many women had traded in their LBDs for the new LWD (that's Little White Dress).

One of my favourite activities to do is to see a movie outdoors. Seeing a movie outside, for some strange reason, is a lot more exciting than simply seeing a movie at the theatre (or maybe that's just me). Best of all! It's usually free for everyone. All you need is a blanket or lawn chairs, a few different snacks, and you're good to go!</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">All across the nation, there are free outdoor movies showing. I highly encourage you to check it out!</span></p> Blog:54a55c19-2b45-4126-ad08-afb159048755Post:bac18246-9166-4d15-9e0c-28c19a3a8a43 Be a Stylish Man http://www.shop.ca/c/shop-blogs/stylish-man Tue, 30 Jul 2013 23:37:00 GMT <p style="text-align:center;"> <img alt="men" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-834" height="560" src="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/07/men.png" width="560" /></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">Summer is the time where everyone's fabulous fashion sense comes out. Many people say that men's fashion isn't that exciting, because they don't have as big of a variety of pieces to choose from. But are they ever wrong! Men's fashion, yes, is a bit more simple than women's, but there are so much more you could play with - colours, prints, textures ...</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">But the ultimate thing you need to look absolutely fantastic are a pair of boat shoes. They are equivalent to a girl's go-to flat shoes.

Sometimes, there are really cool experiences that you want to share, but you don't have a way to capture it since you can't really use your hands and pull out the camera in the moment. There are special cameras that are designed to do that, but those get quite pricey. Here's some good news - use your iPhone instead!</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">"Wait, what? Use my iPhone? That's even crazier!"</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">But no, the folks at Optrix created the XD4 for the iPhone, so that you could film all the cool things you do, hands-free!</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <a href="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/07/optix2.png" rel="nofollow"><img alt="optix2" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-822" height="322" src="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/07/optix2.png" width="329" /> <img alt="surf" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-823" height="332" src="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/07/surf.png" width="331" /></a></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">You can attach it to any hard surface and just go. Because it is encased in a hard, sturdy housing unit, not only is it crush-proof, it is also waterproof as well!</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <img alt="cam" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-824" height="325" src="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/07/cam.png" width="336" /></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">The camera lens enhances the 1080p HD video of the iPhone 5 by adding an all-glass, three element, 175 degree wide-angle lens. This lens adds context to your action by framing in a little bit of helmet, the handlebars of the bike, or the interior of a car.</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">It's got an app to also enhance your videos and make them even more stunning.</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">Also, you can still use your iPhone with the XD4 on - think of it as an everything-proof case that can also take really great videos!</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">What are you waiting for?

Growing up in Los Angeles during the 80’s and 90’s we became a part of this villainous lifestyle. Gangs were everywhere-the hood, the city, even middle suburbia. Most had no choice but to adapt to the environment. Some were able to escape or even channel what they’ve learned on the street into something lucrative. What caught our attention in the mid 90’s was independent fashion/graphic brands.</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">After years of learning the in’s and out’s of the business by starting a brand without knowledge of how to start or run a clothing company, we’ve finally come to this…”Crooks & Castles”! The concept was easy. “Crooks”, criminals, pimps, hustlers, thieves, etc. And “Castles” those who got rich by becoming a crook. From the robber barons of the early times like the Vanderbilts, the Rockerfellers, the Carnegies, to the modern day billionaires-Bill Gates & Microsoft. Those who stopped at nothing to get their “Castle”. We too hope one day to be the next rich crook.</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <a href="http://www.shop.ca/c/crooks-and-castles" manual_cm_sp="Blog-_-Link-_-crooks+and+castles" rel="nofollow" style="color:#2E9AFE;" target="_blank"><font size="3">Check out and purchase Crooks & Castle here!</font></a></p> Blog:54a55c19-2b45-4126-ad08-afb159048755Post:7e8f2caa-ce4a-44a0-8614-8dbb273c2ca5 Royal Baby Watch http://www.shop.ca/c/shop-blogs/royal-baby-watch Mon, 22 Jul 2013 22:30:00 GMT <p style="text-align:center;"> <img alt="katewilliam" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-790" height="479" src="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/07/katewilliam.png" width="560" /></p> <p style="text-align:center;"><span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;"> If you haven't heard yet, Kate Middleton is finally in labour and the next heir to the throne is on its way.

The most popular choices are Alexandra and George. Alexandra was the name of Queen Elizabeth II's cousin (who came from a line of many Alexanders and Alexandras) and George is the name of Queen Elizabeth II's father, aka the baby's great-great-grandfather.</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"><span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;"> She arrived in the hospital at 6am London time.

This is because Fall is THE season to mark new trends coming up (and if you haven't noticed, the juiciest and thickest issue of every single fashion magazine is in September).

You don't want to be THAT house.<br /> <br /> <img alt="tired" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-738" height="371" src="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/07/tired.png" width="560" /></span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">Sometimes keeping your garden might take a bit of work and it might be tiring (especially in the hot hot sun). What's worse is when you're using tools that aren't very good - whether it be hard to grip onto, blades not sharp enough, you know what I mean.<br /> <br /> <img alt="claussgardening" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-739" height="446" src="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/07/claussgardening.png" width="560" /></span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">These Clauss Gardening Tools are the answers to your problem! The neon green and grey grip makes it easy to hold onto each tool, not to mention how extremely sharp they are. I tested out the garden shear on hard plastic (I was trying to open some packaged items). I first used regular scissors, which was obviously very difficult to open the plastic, but with the garden shears, it was like cutting paper!</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">There is a lifetime guarantee on these babies, made of a titanium blade they won't get sticky, not to mention they're pretty inexpensive, considering how well made they are.<br /> <br /> <img alt="pretty" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-741" height="" src="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/07/pretty.png" width="560" /></span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">Having a beautiful garden isn't as hard as you think.

It is so much more refreshing to see everything in order. Of course, many of us have busy and packed schedules, so sometimes, a little bit of a clutter or mess here and there is unavoidable. However, with this gadget, at least you'll have one less thing to worry about.</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <img alt="bobsweep3" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-719" height="" src="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/07/bobsweep3.png" width="680" /></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">The bObsweep Robotic Vacuum cleaner is one of the smartest investment you can make for your home. Unlike your traditional vacuum cleaners, bOb allows you to have a clean home without needing to do the physical work yourself. You can program his cleaning schedule, so you don't even need to think about it. Even better, bObsweep can also sweep and mop your floors as well. It also comes with a UV light to sterilize surfaces. There isn't much maintenance with bObsweep, which is what's making it such a sensation! Because it does your mopping, sweeping and vacuuming, you'll be able to free up more space in your house!</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <img alt="bobsweep" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-717" height="" src="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/07/bobsweep.png" width="680" /></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">In the beginning, the bObsweep might bump into some of your furniture (not to worry though, it won't scratch any of your furniture), but once it "learns" how your house is, it'll work extremely smoothly. Speaking of smoothly, there isn't much noise associated with it. It does make a sound, but it resembles an air purifier, therefore, if you want him to clean up while you're asleep, that is completely do-able.</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <img alt="bobsweep2" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-720" height="" src="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/07/bobsweep2.png" width="680" /></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">A neat thing about bObsweep is that it knows when it's about to run out of battery, so it goes back to it's "home" (the charging dock). If you place it on an elevated surface (like a table), it can detect edges and knows not to fall off. The best thing about bObsweep is that it comes with a remote control as well, meaning you can control where you want it to go ... and it's just as much fun as that remote controlled car/helicopter/boat that used to play with!</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <a href="http://www.shop.ca/c/bobsweep-canada-bobsweep-robotic-vacuum-cleaner-and-mop-champagne-22729748" manual_cm_sp="Blog-_-Link-_-bObsweep" rel="nofollow" style="color:#2E9AFE;" target="_blank"><font size="3">Try it for yourself!

Wouldn't you want to be "that person" who did something really great? Well, now you can! *Bonus* You can also save quite a bit of cash by doing so.</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <img alt="Screen shot 2013-07-12 at 2.18.14 PM" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-698" height="371" src="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/07/screen-shot-2013-07-12-at-2-18-14-pm1.png" width="560" /></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">Being able to save the world isn't that difficult (or scary) as it sounds. In this day and age, it is highly unlikely to be unaware of the kinds of environmental issues we face. Little everyday decisions could make a huge impacts.</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <img alt="Screen shot 2013-07-12 at 2.41.07 PM" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-699" height="359" src="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/07/screen-shot-2013-07-12-at-2-41-07-pm.png" width="560" /></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">Batteries are things that are small, but very harmful to the environment.  Inside the alkaline battery cell contains hazardous materials, including mercury,  nickel, cadmium, cobalt and lead. Although there are dedicated places where you can dispose of old, unwanted batteries, more often than not, we toss them into the trash can.</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <img alt="Screen shot 2013-07-12 at 3.32.48 PM" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-700" height="395" src="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/07/screen-shot-2013-07-12-at-3-32-48-pm.png" width="560" /></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">Those hazardous materials that were mentioned aren't usually exposed because they are housed in a casing. However, when batteries are put into a landfill, the casing usually gets crushed or easily degrades, causing the heavy metals to leak.</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">What does that mean? That means that these toxic materials integrate into the environment; into the air we breathe and water we drink - highly detrimental to our health! On top of that, there are corrosive acids within the batteries and when they reach the right temperature, they can explode and release toxic fumes into the air.</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <a href="http://www.shop.ca/c/hipstreet-hipstreet-usb-rechargable-batteries---aa---6-pack-bundle-22785531" manual_cm_sp="Blog-_-Link-_-Hipstreet+Batteries+01"><img alt="hipstreet" height="347" src="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/07/hipstreet.png" width="461" /></a></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">This is how you can take action to prevent things like that from happening. With the introduction of rechargeable batteries, less and less batteries are being disposed of. <a href="http://www.shop.ca/c/hipstreet-hipstreet-usb-rechargable-batteries---aa---6-pack-bundle-22785531" manual_cm_sp="Blog-_-Link-_-Hipstreet+Batteries+02" rel="nofollow" style="color:#2E9AFE;" target="_blank"><font size="3">Hipstreet's USB Rechargeable Batteries</font></a> are a great alternative to single-use batteries.</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <a href="http://www.shop.ca/c/hipstreet-hipstreet-usb-rechargable-batteries---aa---6-pack-bundle-22785531" manual_cm_sp="Blog-_-Link-_-Hipstreet+Batteries+03"><img alt="Screen shot 2013-07-11 at 2.55.24 PM" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-681" height="222" src="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/07/screen-shot-2013-07-11-at-2-55-24-pm.png" width="333" /></a></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">All you need is anything that would have a USB port (such as your laptop turned on), plug a battery in and it'll charge through that. You could also charge it in a standard mAh recharger as well, such as one that's like <a href="http://www.shop.ca/c/lanmar-lenmar-4-hour-aa-aaa-ac-dc-battery-charger-with-usb-output---includes-4-aa-r2g-ready-to-go-batteries-22349127" manual_cm_sp="Blog-_-Link-_-Hipstreet+Batteries+04" rel="nofollow" style="color:#2E9AFE;" target="_blank"><font size="3">this</font></a>.

Not only is this a handy option to have with you, but it's also very economical in the long run. You'll save money by simply recharging the batteries instead of buying new ones every time. (Plus, this solves the problem of wondering whether or not a battery works or not).</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">Currently, SHOP.CA is offering a 12-pack of Hipstreet Rechargeable USB Batteries at 25% off!</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;"><a href="http://www.shop.ca/c/hipstreet-hipstreet-usb-rechargable-batteries---aa---6-pack-bundle-22785531" manual_cm_sp="Blog-_-Link-_-Hipstreet+Batteries+06" rel="nofollow" style="color:#2E9AFE;" target="_blank"><font size="3">Click to shop the Hipstreet USB Rechargeable Batteries.</font></a></span></p> Blog:54a55c19-2b45-4126-ad08-afb159048755Post:07487565-2e05-4de0-b764-250fbbcd4909 Things To Do With The Girls http://www.shop.ca/c/shop-blogs/things-girls Thu, 11 Jul 2013 17:53:00 GMT <p style="text-align:center;"> <a href="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/07/girls2.png" rel="nofollow"><img alt="girls" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-666" height="370" src="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/07/girls2.png" width="560" /></a></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">When it comes to hanging out with your closest girls, sometimes, you just don't want to shop and get your nails done.

Whenever I have moved into new apartments, I get excited at the thought of being able to change a space and make it look better. None of my apartments have ever looked the same, in terms of the way I have had them arranged and even the furniture has been different.</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">You could always change up the way your space looks - it doesn't take too much. Just by adding/removing/swapping a few things in a room could drastically change the entire vibe.

Not only do we have a vast range of cultures and people, even the land itself is different across the nation (this is where we backtrack to grade four geography class). The best way to really understand and explore is by doing a road trip across Canada, going from ocean to ocean. We've got your necessities for embarking on this remarkable adventure! <img alt="Canadian Cartographics Corporation - Canada US map" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-607" height="344" src="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/07/canadian-cartographics-corporation-canada-us-map.png" width="560" /></span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">Kick it old school and use maps to get around!

We believe that giving back is something that helps create value, especially helping those who are less fortunate. So, we've partnered up with Me to We and this is what we've done thus far! </span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <img alt="501" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-480" height="" src="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/07/501.png" width="680" /></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">In 2012, we had this going on. How did we do? Very well. In fact... </span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;"><img alt="school" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-481" height="" src="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/07/school.png" width="680" /></span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">We raised enough money to build a school for a village in Kenya!</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <img alt="marc" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-495" height="" src="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/07/marc1.png" width="680" /></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">Marc Kielburger also swung by our headquarters to give us a presentation on Free the Children.

Free the Children works very diligently to make life changing impacts in many parts of the world. Similarly, we are also looking to change the way Canadians shop and make their purchases within an online space.</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">Many of us here are inspired by what Free the Children does, that there are a couple partners who have decided to donate their salary on their birthdays for the cause.</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">You can also support them through visiting the <a href="http://www.shop.ca/c/me-to-we-store?cm_mmc=Social-Media-_-Blog-_-SHOPCA-Post-_-20130702" rel="nofollow" style="color:#0029FF;" target="_blank"><font size="3">Me to We shop</font></a> - a great selection of sustainable and eco-friendly accessories, as well as books that tell inspiring stories.</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">To find out more about Free the Children, you can visit them <a href="http://www.freethechildren.com" rel="nofollow" style="color:#0029FF;" target="_blank"><font size="3">here</font></a>.</span></p> Blog:54a55c19-2b45-4126-ad08-afb159048755Post:b56c901b-ee4e-4179-8a7e-d1ff8d54825f Surviving the Great Outdoors http://www.shop.ca/c/shop-blogs/surviving-great-outdoors Fri, 28 Jun 2013 23:13:00 GMT <p style="text-align:center;"> <img alt="camping" class="alignnone size-large wp-image-445" height="" src="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/camping.png?w=560" width="680" /></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">So your significant other wants to go camping, and camping just isn't your "thing". You can do cottaging, but sleeping in tents on the possibly wet ground just doesn't cut it for you. We've got the list of what you'll need to be able to survive out there - don't worry, you'll be happy, and so will they! <a href="http://www.shop.ca/c/sunrise-7-vestibule-tent"><img alt="world famous Sunrise 9 Vestibule Tent" class="alignnone size-large wp-image-446" height="367" src="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/world-famous-sunrise-9-vestibule-tent.png?w=560" width="560" /></a></span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">The most important thing you need for camping is a tent, especially one you can rely on. <a href="//www.shop.ca/c/sunrise-7-vestibule-tent" style="color:#0029FF;" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><font size="3">The Sunrise 7 Vestibule Tent</font></a> has everything you would want in a tent - easy setup (you could do it alone!), waterproof and UV resistant material, taped seams, and large zippers! <a href="http://www.shop.ca/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10301&productId=15585&langId=-1&storeId=10201" target="_blank"><img alt="bestway QUEEN PREMIUM AIR BED" class="alignnone size-large wp-image-447" height="367" src="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/bestway-queen-premium-air-bed.png?w=560" width="560" /></a></span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">Aside from the tent, this is the best thing you could bring for camping - an air mattress! Every time I've been camping, this has come with me. It means you don't have to sleep on the uneven, rocky, and hard ground. <a href="http://www.shop.ca/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10301&productId=15585&langId=-1&storeId=10201" style="color:#0029FF;" target="_blank"><font size="3">The Bestway Queen Air Mattress</font></a> is comfortable and it comes with a built-in air pump that gets your bed setup in minutes.</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <a href="http://www.shop.ca/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10301&productId=32659&langId=-1&storeId=10201"><img alt="NORTH 49 MEGAS 3 OVERSIZE SLEEPING BAG" class="alignnone size-large wp-image-448" height="367" src="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/north-49-megas-3-oversize-sleeping-bag.png?w=560" width="560" /></a></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">Even though it's summer and it's really hot and humid in the day, I assure you, up North in the wilderness, it gets cold at night. The kind of cold that you would want a pair of sweatpants and jacket on. How warm and thick your sleeping bag is therefore extremely important. The <a href="http://www.shop.ca/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10301&productId=32659&langId=-1&storeId=10201" style="color:#0029FF;" target="_blank"><font size="3">North 49 Megas 3 Oversize Sleeping Bag</font></a> is large enough to fit two people inside and is also warm.</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <a href="http://www.shop.ca/c/world-famous-sales-of-canada-camp-cooking-plus-bundle-22724780"><img alt="world famous Camp Cooking PLUS Bundle" class="alignnone size-large wp-image-450" height="367" src="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/world-famous-camp-cooking-plus-bundle.png?w=560" width="560" /></a></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">After your shelter and sleeping arrangements are taken care of, food is of course the next important thing. <a href="http://www.shop.ca/c/world-famous-sales-of-canada-camp-cooking-plus-bundle-22724780" style="color:#0029FF;" target="_blank"><font size="3">The World Famous Sales Of Canada Cooking Plus Bundle</font></a> has includes a set of pots, a portable two-element burner and a foldable counter for you to do food prep on. <a href="http://www.shop.ca/c/koolatron-koolatron-travel-saver-12v-cooler-warmer-22403527"><img alt="Koolatron Travel Saver 12V Cooler warmer" class="alignnone size-large wp-image-451" height="367" src="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/koolatron-travel-saver-12v-cooler-warmer.png?w=560" width="560" /></a></span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">When it comes to food, when your food is cold, you want it to stay cold. Melted messes are no fun, ever.

Sitting on logs look great in movies, but realistically you'd want folding chairs (like these ones from <a href="http://www.shop.ca/c/north-49-oversized-directors-folding-chair-2-pack-22724731" style="color:#0029FF;" target="_blank"><font size="3">North 49</font></a>) A lot more comfortable and a lesser chance of bugs crawling under your clothes. <a href="http://www.shop.ca/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10301&productId=29607&langId=-1&storeId=10201"><img alt="North 49 Waterproof Dry Duffle" class="alignnone size-large wp-image-452" height="367" src="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/north-49-waterproof-dry-duffle.png?w=560" width="560" /></a></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">And sometimes if it rains, keeping your clothes dry is important (and other electronic devices, of course). <a href="http://www.shop.ca/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10301&productId=29607&langId=-1&storeId=10201" style="color:#0029FF;" target="_blank"><font size="3">This Waterproof Duffel from North 49</font></a> would definitely do the job.

What are nordic spas? How does it differ from normal spas? Well, it's basically a circuit where there are hot tubs, cold tubs, showers, steam rooms and saunas for you to rotate between. It's an Old Finnish tradition where people used this method to help relax. There are many different nordic spas (or simply water circuits) in Canada. </span></p> <p> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">Y</span><span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">ou must try them out!

What a wonderful feeling, I'm happy again! Unlike Gene Kelly, when it starts raining, everyone heads for cover. Over here in the East coast where our office is located, there has been warnings of thunderstorm for  the whole week (that's right, there goes my long weekend tanning by the lake). Thunderstorms, rainy days, those are the times where staying in and being cozy is on the top of most people's list. Here's a list of what makes a perfect rainy day.</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <a href="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/nygard-home-hampton-duvet-cover-set.png" rel="nofollow"><img alt="Nygard Home Hampton Duvet Cover Set" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-422" height="400" src="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/nygard-home-hampton-duvet-cover-set.png" width="560" /></a></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">The perfect bed setup is probably the most important thing you require for the perfect rainy day. Your sheets need to be super soft and you're supposed to feel like you're resting your head on clouds. <a href="http://www.shop.ca//ProductDisplay?urlRequestType=Base&catalogId=10301&categoryId=16690&productId=4005785&errorViewName=ProductDisplayErrorView&urlLangId=-1&langId=-1&top_category=10111&parent_category_rn=10111&storeId=10201&cm_mmc=Social-Media-_-Blog-_-SHOPCA-Post-_-20130625" rel="nofollow" style="color:#0029FF;" target="_blank"><font size="3">The Nygard Home Hampton Duvet Cover Set is perfect for that.</font></a></span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <center><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="383" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/GKSbFaUHcSY?list=SPGznEl712WencwBJI3Idxggb58SmnH38z" width="680"></iframe></center></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">Chill music is a must - the pitter patter sounds of the rain, plus some trap, r&b, and relaxing slowed down remixes are perfect to lie in bed with all day. Majestic Casual is my favourite channel that is basically a compilation of amazing, chill, music.<img alt="cuisinart 1 L TEA STEEPER KETTLE" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-426" height="" src="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/cuisinart-1-l-tea-steeper-kettle.png" width="680" /></span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">Tea or coffee or hot chocolate, some sort of warm beverage makes a rainy day more enjoyable. Why? I'm not sure, but it just does.

Oh, and you have to be there. Here are some tips for getting through this merry time of the year. There are a few important things to keep in mind when you're invited to attend a wedding. The first point is the most obvious. RSVP. They need to know if you're attending or not. After that's done, you just need to figure out what to wear and what to bring.</span></p> <h2 style="text-align:center;"> What to Wear</h2> <p style="text-align:center;"> <img alt="semiformal" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-313" height="" src="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/semiformal.png" width="680" /></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">What you're going to wear highly depends on two things: where it is and what time of the day it is. If it's a daytime wedding, showing up in a cocktail dress (though acceptable), will make you feel a little overdressed. Likewise, if it's a wedding on a beach, and you decided to wear heels, it may not be the best experience for you.</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">For weddings that occur in the daytime, men can opt to wear a lighter colour suit (such as a pastel blue) or simply a black, gray or navy suit. For the ladies, they should wear something made of a lighter fabric. Prints, florals and light colours are highly popular. Either way, no one should be wearing white, other than the bride herself! For evening weddings, men should be wearing darker coloured suits. Women can wear something a little more formal, cocktail dresses are the best option.</span></p> <h2 style="text-align:center;"> What to Bring</h2> <p style="text-align:center;"> <img alt="present" class="alignnone size-large wp-image-353" height="" src="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/present.png?w=560" width="680" /></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">Wedding gifts are a little confusing, but there are so many different things you can get the couple-to-be. Usually a gift registry is set up, but if not, things for the home are pretty fail-safe. Think of things that they will need or you think they would be able to enjoy together.</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">We've compiled a few suggestions to help you out! <i>Click image to shop the product.</i></span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <a href="http://www.shop.ca/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10301&productId=3963852&langId=-1&storeId=10201&cm_mmc=Social-Media-_-Blog-_-SHOPCA-Post-_-20130625" target="_blank"><img alt="calvin_klein_slim_fit_black_suit" class="alignnone size-thumbnail wp-image-354" height="150" src="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/calvin_klein_slim_fit_black_suit.png?w=87" width="87" /></a>  <a href="http://www.shop.ca/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10301&productId=3963854&langId=-1&storeId=10201&cm_mmc=Social-Media-_-Blog-_-SHOPCA-Post-_-20130625" target="_blank"><img alt="calvin_klein_slim_fit_grey_suit" class="alignnone size-thumbnail wp-image-355" height="150" src="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/calvin_klein_slim_fit_grey_suit.png?w=91" width="91" /></a> <a href="http://www.shop.ca//ProductDisplay?urlRequestType=Base&catalogId=10301&categoryId=&productId=3938941&errorViewName=ProductDisplayErrorView&urlLangId=-1&langId=-1&top_category=&parent_category_rn=&storeId=10201&cm_mmc=Social-Media-_-Blog-_-SHOPCA-Post-_-20130625" target="_blank"><img alt="rebecca_taylor_crepe_electric_blue_dress" class="alignnone size-thumbnail wp-image-360" height="150" src="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/rebecca_taylor_crepe_electric_blue_dress.png?w=100" width="100" /></a></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <a href="http://www.shop.ca/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10301&productId=3988359&langId=-1&storeId=10201?cm_mmc=Social-Media-_-Blog-_-SHOPCA-Post-_-20130625" target="blank"><img alt="yde_animal_print_satin_dress" class="alignnone size-thumbnail wp-image-362" height="150" src="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/yde_animal_print_satin_dress.png?w=111" width="111" /></a><a href="http://www.shop.ca/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10301&productId=3988502&langId=-1&storeId=10201&cm_mmc=Social-Media-_-Blog-_-SHOPCA-Post-_-20130625" target="blank"><img alt="Delonghi DCM02RE Kmix 5-cup coffee maker" class="alignnone size-thumbnail wp-image-356" height="150" src="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/delonghi-dcm02re-kmix-5-cup-coffee-maker.png?w=147" width="147" /></a> <a href="http://www.shop.ca/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10301&productId=4083084&langId=-1&storeId=10201&cm_mmc=Social-Media-_-Blog-_-SHOPCA-Post-_-20130625" target="_blank"><img alt="HAMILTON BEACH 33365C Slow cooker 6qt intelligent hb" class="alignnone size-thumbnail wp-image-357" height="150" src="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/hamilton-beach-33365c-slow-cooker-6qt-intelligent-hb.png?w=150" width="" /> </a></p> <p style="text-align:center;">   <a href="http://www.shop.ca/c/iron-frame-wall-mirror-22039606--1?cm_mmc=Social-Media-_-Blog-_-SHOPCA-Post-_-20130625" target="_blank"><img alt="Iron Frame Wall Mirror" class="alignnone size-thumbnail wp-image-358" height="150" src="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/iron-frame-wall-mirror.png?w=147" width="147" /></a> <a href="http://www.shop.ca/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10301&productId=4017076&langId=-1&storeId=10201&cm_mmc=Social-Media-_-Blog-_-SHOPCA-Post-_-20130625" target="_blank"><img alt="paderno 20 PIECE CUTLERY SET - STRATHGARTNEY" class="alignnone size-thumbnail wp-image-359" height="108" src="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/paderno-20-piece-cutlery-set-strathgartney.png?w=150" width="" /> </a> <a href="http://www.shop.ca/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10301&productId=3953114&langId=-1&storeId=10201&cm_mmc=Social-Media-_-Blog-_-SHOPCA-Post-_-20130625" target="_blank"><img alt="T-Fal 8pc.

If you didn't get a chance to read it, check it out <a href="http://www.shop.ca/c/shop-blogs/gourmet-cooking-made-simple?cm_mmc=Social-Media-_-Blog-_-SHOPCA-Post-_-20130625" style="color:#0029FF;" target="_blank"><font size="3">here</font></a>. As promised, I said that I would share my experience in using it.Here's what happened.</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <img alt="gourmet_cooknig_tajine_stitch" class="alignnone size-large wp-image-331" height="" src="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/gourmet_cooknig_tajine_stitch.png?w=560" width="680" /></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">I received the package in the office and it almost felt like Christmas - I've been really excited about getting to use it! It came with the pot, the element and a user manual, which had more recipes. I decided to make Moroccan Chicken with Lemon and Olives. Keep in mind, I have never made Moroccan food before, so without a doubt, I was a little scared. But it actually was pretty easy. It took around 2 hours to make it.<br /> <br /> <img alt="IMG_4997" class="alignnone size-large wp-image-332" height="" src="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/img_4997.jpg?w=560" width="680" /></span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;"><strong>Ingredients:</strong><br /> - 2 teaspoons paprika<br /> - 1 teaspoon ground cumin<br /> - 1 teaspoon ground ginger<br /> - 1 teaspoon turmeric<br /> - 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon<br /> - 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper<br /> - 2 Tbsp olive oil<br /> - 1 chicken, 3-4 lbs (or 3-4 lbs of just chicken thighs and legs, that's what I used)<br /> - Salt<br /> - 3 cloves garlic, minced<br /> - 1 onion, chopped - pieces of lemon skin<br /> - 1 cup green olives, pitted (I used sliced olives)<br /> - 1/2 cup water<br /> - 1/2 cup raisins<br /> - 1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <img alt="chickenseasoned" class="alignnone size-large wp-image-333" height="" src="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/chickenseasoned.png?w=560" width="680" /></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">First, you take all the spices and put it into a bowl. Then, mix the chicken in and make sure the chicken is well marinated in the seasoning. Set that aside and let it sit for an hour.</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <img alt="chop" class="alignnone size-large wp-image-334" height="" src="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/chop.png?w=560" width="680" /></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">While your chicken is being infused with flavour, use this time to chop your onions, parsely and mince your garlic. I also used this time to clean up the mess that I made, so cleaning up afterwards is easier. Also, you may want to start heating your tajine 15 - 20 minutes prior to actual cooking. It's because the tajine is made of ceramic that it took awhile for it to heat up.</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <img alt="cooking" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-341" height="" src="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/cooking.png" width="680" /></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">Add the olive oil and place the chicken into the pot and cover the lid. Keep it at the browning setting. After 20 minutes of cooking, turn each piece of chicken over, add the onion and garlic and let it cook for another 20 - 30 minutes. Then, proceed to add your water, lemon, raisins and olives. Turn it to the simmer setting. Let it cook for another 30 minutes.

It's basically a parade that showcases giant figures that relate to the Quebecois culture. There are made of paper mache and put on display for all to see. It's an interactive parade, meaning that everyone can attend workshops (puppet, writing, painting, music) and display the fruits of the labour in the parade. The workshops are located at the corner of Davidson and Sherbrooke St., starting at 1pm. The actual parade itself is set to begin at 4:45pm, starting at the same point and marching along Sherbrooke ending at Parc Maisonneuve.</span></p> <h2 style="text-align:center;"> <strong>Le Grand Spectacle</strong></h2> <p style="text-align:center;"> <a href="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/grandspect.png" rel="nofollow"><img alt="grandspect" class="alignnone size-large wp-image-291" height="" src="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/grandspect.png?w=560" width="680" /></a></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">At Parc Maisonneuve, after the parade ends here, it turns into a giant concert and entertainment venue, with live performances and showcases.

The only problem is, when you want to play it out loud, the speakers on the device (if it has one) doesn't always cut it. Voilà! Enter portable speakers! They're light, they're small, and claim to have big sounds. I'm checking out the Braven 600 </span><span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">for the first time.</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;"><a href="http://www.shop.ca/c/braven-braven-600-wireless-portable-bluetooth-speaker---powerbank---red-%28bz600rba%29-22549374" target="_blank"><img alt="bravencup" class="alignnone size-large wp-image-225" height="510" src="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/bravencup.jpg?w=560" width="680" /></a></span></p> <p style="text-align:center;">  </p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">It's a pretty small, it's not much bigger than my mug of coffee. It's made with aircraft grade aluminum, has a 6W speaker output and a noise cancelling microphone. It plays through Bluetooth connection and there's an audio cable and input on the speaker to connect directly. So, I took it out for a spin. </span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">To be honest, when I looked at it, I wasn't that impressed. It didn't look like it would work or if it did, the sound wouldn't be too loud. However, this was not the case. It has a really crisp and clear sound and was able to fill our lunch room. I wouldn't say this is loud enough to have a crazy party, but, it's definitely loud enough to be background music at a gathering or a nice dinner party. It also has an output, so you can connect it to another Braven speaker for a louder sound. The microphone on it isn't too shabby either, it's a great hands-free device to use if your hands are occupied.</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <br /> <a href="http://www.shop.ca/c/braven-braven-600-wireless-portable-bluetooth-speaker---powerbank---red-%28bz600rba%29-22549374" target="_blank"><img alt="bravendesk" class="alignnone size-large wp-image-223" height="510" src="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/bravendesk.jpg?w=560" width="680" /></a><br /> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">Some cool (and unexpected) features on it:</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">-</span><em style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;"> <strong>Battery indicator:</strong></em><span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;"> There's a button on the side will flash different colours to indicate the battery life.</span><br /> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">- </span><strong><em style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">Phone: </em></strong><span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">Once you've connected your phone through Bluetooth, you can pick-up/hang-up your calls by pressing the phone button on the speaker</span><br /> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">- </span><strong><em style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">Charging unit:</em></strong><span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;"> You can charge your devices through the speaker, meaning you can plug in your USB cord for your phone and it will charge!</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">The design is sleek, compact and it matches pretty well with everything. It comes with a carrying bag, so I can take it in my purse and bring it around (like to the beach). Needless to say, the Braven 600 was a surprise, and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a portable speaker.</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;"><a href="//www.shop.ca/c/braven-braven-600-wireless-portable-bluetooth-speaker---powerbank---red-%28bz600rba%29-22549374?cm_mmc=Social-Media-_-Blog-_-SHOPCA-Post-_-20130625" rel="nofollow" style="color:#0029FF;" target="_blank"><font size="3">Purchase the Braven 600 Wireless Portable Bluetooth Speaker & PowerBank Red (BZ600RBA)</font></a></span></p> Blog:54a55c19-2b45-4126-ad08-afb159048755Post:9164e884-ab76-487f-83d3-58f0dd04273f Diner en Blanc http://www.shop.ca/c/shop-blogs/dner-en-blanc Tue, 18 Jun 2013 19:02:00 GMT <p style="text-align:center;"> <img alt="Screen shot 2013-06-13 at 8.03.53 AM" class="alignnone size-large wp-image-64" height="335" src="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/screen-shot-2013-06-13-at-8-03-53-am.png?w=560" width="560" /></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">The most common kinds of flashmobs we see are the ones that dance and sing, but Dîner en Blanc takes the cake for being the most unique flashmob yet.What makes this different is that this is a flashmob where people have picnic dinner in white. It's an annual international event where people register to go and find out the secret location days before it takes place. This year, there are 8 different cities in Canada that are hosting their own Dîner en Blanc, including Niagara-On-The-Lake, Quebec City, Okanagan, Victoria, Calgary, Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver. The organizers provide you with tables draped in white, but you need to bring your own chairs, food, and servingware. A night of fun, food, fashion and music, it's surely a night not to miss. For the lucky people who are going, (getting an invite takes awhile, they have the longest waitlist), we have some picks for you. And for the people who aren't, who says you can't have your own white picnic?</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <a

Beaches, pools, bikinis, swimsuits. It is the time of the year when most people feel most motivated to get into better shape (aside from New Year's, of course).

The tajine is a traditional Berber cooking vessel that was used by Moroccan and North African nomads. It was often that stews made with lamb, chicken or fish was made using the tajine. The shape of the conical lid was designed to have the circulating steam condense inside the lid, keeping the food from drying out, while infusing oils and spices into the meat cooking. Because it was designed to keep moisture in, this was very important for nomads, since access to water wasn't always available.</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;"><a href="http://www.shop.ca/c/Gourmet-Choice-Gourmet-Choice-Electric-Tajine-model-GC0909BK-22396539?cm_mmc=Social-Media-_-Blog-_-SHOPCA-Post-_-20130625" target="_blank"><img alt="gourmet_tanjine" class="size-full wp-image-100 aligncenter" height="419" src="http://shophappystories.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/gourmet_tanjine.png" width="380" /></a></span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">I suggest using the <a href="http://www.shop.ca/c/Gourmet-Choice-Gourmet-Choice-Electric-Tajine-model-GC0909BK-22396539?cm_mmc=Social-Media-_-Blog-_-SHOPCA-Post-_-20130625" style="color:#0029FF;" target="_blank"><font size="3">Gourmet Choice Electric Tajine</font></a>.

Each product is kissed with delectable fragrances and unique textures that are sure to delight the senses. They create indulgent products that mix a dash of sass with a generous helping of 90 to 95% high quality, natural ingredients. </span></p> <p> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">What we like most about <strong>Cake Beauty</strong>, is that they leave out bad ingredients that are commonly found in other health and beauty products such as parabens, sodium chloride, phthalates, GMO’s, mineral oil, petrolatum, gluten, triclosan. </span></p> <p> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">Heather Reier, president and founder of <strong>Cake Beauty</strong>, was always interested in beauty products. In 2003 her passion for indulgent and rich bath and body products led her to begin mixing her own formulas in the kitchen, using raw ingredients like shea butter, coconut oil and sugar. </span></p> <p> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">After months of mixing, Cake was ready to be ‘served’ to the world! The result of Reier’s efforts was a beautiful and luxurious collection of suds, scrubs and lotions, each infused with a sweet scent and adorned with a cleaver and distinctive name, like Desserted Island. </span></p> <p> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">Enjoy your very own slice of Cake by trying one of our yummy product recommendations: </span></p> <p> <img align="center" alt="Cake Beauty Spring Favourites Set - 7 Piece" src="http://img1.shopimg.ca/content/full/22400812_main_full.jpeg" style="display:block;margin:auto;" /></p> <p style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;"> <a href="http://www.shop.ca/c/cake-beauty-spring-favourites-set---7-piece-22400812" style="font-size:1.0em;color:#0029FF;">Cake Beauty Spring Favourites Set - 7 Piece</a>: A sweet smapling of our most popular products - indlucing our best selling dry shampoos and our limited edition Sweethearts collection: Sweethearts Luscious Bath & Shower Froth, Sweethearts Luscious Hair & Body Mist, Sweethearts Luscious Body Butter, Sweethearts Luscious Lip Butter-Balm, Sweethearts Luscious Velveteen Hand Creme, Satin Sugar Glistening Dry Shampoo & Body Powder, Satin Sugar Sweet Fuss-Free Volumizing Dry Shampoo Spray. <strong>$140</strong></p> <p>  </p> Blog:54a55c19-2b45-4126-ad08-afb159048755Post:3b3ed957-f819-435a-815c-f1459015a113 Bistrotea - now on SHOP.CA http://www.shop.ca/c/shop-blogs/bistrotea-now-shopca Fri, 12 Apr 2013 21:54:00 GMT <p> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">Teas, teas, teas… so many types, but they all come from a single plant called Camellia Sinensis. </span></p> <p> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">The differences in taste, colour and caffeine levels are from the different ways of processing and oxidation. </span></p> <p> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">Herbal teas are really infusions of the flowers, leaves, seeds and roots of other plants, also known as “tisanes.” </span></p> <p> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">New to SHOP.CA is <a href="http://www.shop.ca/c/b/bistrotea" style="font-size:1.0em;color:#0029FF;">Bistrotea.</a> Bistrotea is every tea lovers dream. Smart, innovative technology combined with natural tea flavors to produce a unique tea drinking experience.

By age 13, Sandra brought her own designs to life by drawing patterns on taped together newspaper. She perfected her skills after taking pattern-making courses at Fanshawe College and graduating from Ryerson’s Fashion Design Program in 1990. Sandra worked in Toronto’s garment industry and had the wonderful experience of working as a seamstress in The National Ballet’s costume department, followed by Assistant to the Designer at a small aerobics wear manufacturer. </span></p> <p> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">By 1995, Sandra started Loko Designs in London, Ontario, Canada and manufactured cheerleading uniforms that were distributed across Canada. Competitive dance costumes and fitness wear soon followed.

It’s starting to get chilly, and I know I can’t wait to get back into mine! </span></p> <p> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">The only people who don’t like UGG boots, are the people who haven’t been lucky enough to own a pair yet. This may be a bold statement, but I am walking proof of it. Before I was given my first pair, I had no idea on what I was missing out on. </span></p> <p> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">UGG boots have been around since the <a href="http://www.uggaustralia.ca/the-story-of-ugg/story-ugg,en_CA,pg.html" rel="nofollow" style="font-size:1.0em;color:#0029FF;">sixties</a>, but have recently made footprints all over North America and the rest of the world. This Aussie fad was started by surfers who began to wear sheepskin footwear on the beaches between hitting the waves to keep their feet warm and dry. </span></p> <p> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">Even though this phenomenon started down under, it has rapidly spread internationally. </span></p> <p> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">They are hands down the most comfortable footwear on the market. UGG boots are unisex and the once classic tan booties now come in countless variations of colours and styles, like these UGG slippers! These Rylan's are perfect for wearing at work under your desk or at home: </span></p> <p>  </p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;"><img align="center" alt="Rylan" height="300" src="http://img1.shopimg.ca/content/full/22179619_main_full.jpeg" width="300" /> </span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;"><a href="http://www.shop.ca/shop/en/shopdotca/ugg-l-rylan---chestnut-22179473" style="font-size:1.0em;color:#0029FF;" title="Ladies' Rylan - Chestnut">Ladies' Rylan - Chestnut</a> </span></p> <p> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">Next on my SHOP.CA Wishlist are these winterized UGG boots.

Not only is it great for travel, it works for every season. Use the darkest bronzer for summer, or go a bit lighter for fall! You can even achieve pink rosy cheeks for winter. </span></p> <p>  </p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <img align="center" src="http://img3.shopimg.ca/content/full/22047364_main_full.jpeg" /></p> <p> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">I love this - I no longer need to be carrying makeup bags with blush, bronzer, concealer, powder foundation, and the list goes on. All I need is this kit, plus a little mascara and lipstick, and I’m good to go! </span></p> <p> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">When I am carrying it with me, I am ready for any situation. I even use it on my friends when they need a quick makeovers. </span></p> <p> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">In this one kit, you get 4 blushes and 4 bronzers. You can also blend up the hues to create the perfect glow to your face, while highlighting and contouring your best features! </span></p> <p> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">This <u><a href="http://www.shop.ca/shop/ProductDisplay?urlRequestType=Base&catalogId=10301&categoryId=&productId=3650969&errorViewName=ProductDisplayErrorView&urlLangId=-1&langId=-1&top_category=&parent_category_rn=&storeId=10201" style="font-size:1.0em;color:#0029FF;">convenient kit</a></u> includes: </span></p> <p> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">- Blush in Hafwen + Blush in Kalea + Blush in Dulcina + Blush in Adem</span></p> <p> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">- Bronzer in Kala + Bronzer in Brunnisen + Bronzer in Eldora + Bronzer in Ardita</span></p> <p>  </p> <p> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">I had so much fun playing around with this kit, not only on myself, but with some friends at work! I created two looks to show you, and each in under 5 minutes. Both of these lovely ladies have different skin tones, as one is more olive and one has fairer skin, but I was still able to use the same palette. </span></p> <p> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">Another beauty of this kit is that you can create anything from a very casual fresh faced look, to a dramatic evening look. I would highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys makeup. </span></p> <p> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">I have included some brief but useful descriptions of what I used on each girl to achieve their desired look! </span></p> <p>  </p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <strong><img align="center" src="http://img84.imageshack.us/img84/7976/boxxcosmeticsblog13.jpg" width="900" /></strong> <strong><img align="center" src="http://img402.imageshack.us/img402/3521/boxxcosmeticsblog23.jpg" width="900" /></strong> <strong><img align="center" src="http://img22.imageshack.us/img22/1059/boxxcosmeticsblog33.jpg" width="900" /></strong></p> <p> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">What makeup can you not live without? </span></p> <p> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">I think I am a bronzer girl, but in fall I cannot stay away from blush.

I’m Alexandra. I am part of the SHOP.CA customer loyalty team and my job is to help Canadians have the best shopping experience that they possibly can, and I take this very seriously! I also love fashion. In fact, you may say that I am consumed with fashion; I’ve often been told I have my own personal flare. So naturally, I thought, how can I use my infatuation with style and all things beautiful to help everyone have a great SHOP.CA experience. And so, the #FashionFriday blog posts were born. </span></p> <p> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">This blog aims to keep you up on the hottest trends and go from season to season in epic style. Trends are always changing, so follow me and let me assist you in staying on top of what’s trending in Canada. </span></p> <p> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">Our first #FashionFriday trend is stacking! </span></p> <p> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">What is stacking? </span></p> <p> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">Stacking is a word used to describe wearing more than one bracelet, necklace, or ring at the same time. This is a trend that isn’t going anywhere, anytime soon. </span></p> <p>  </p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <img align="center" alt="Stacking Example" height="300" src="http://classyandfabgirl.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/bangles.jpg" width="300" /> <img align="center" alt="Stacking Example" height="300" src="http://livingeasylovingfree.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/stack-3.jpg" width="300" /></p> <p> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">Stacking has been one of the hottest trends since the spring of 2011, and now going into fall, it is just getting more and more popular. I am sure that by winter you will all be stacking experts! </span></p> <p>  </p> <p> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">For some, this concept is outrageous, as in the past, it has been standard to showcase one piece at a time. Less was more, but now MORE IS YES. </span></p> <p> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">What? I know. Crazy. But, matching is a thing of the past and now it’s all about being fun, getting creative and stacking it all on at once. </span></p> <p> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">While stacking can be applied to rings and necklaces as well, my favourite thing to stack is my wrist! </span></p> <p> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">When accessorizing the wrist, try stacking beads, strings, threads, charms, leather, and silver with gold. You can’t go wrong! My personal favourite mix is stacking deep autumn colours like burgundy and wine, with gold! </span></p> <p> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">What I love most about stacking is that it gives you the opportunity to raid your jewelry box and reinvent old treasures into new favourites, and it means I don’t have to spend time in the morning trying to choose what bracelets match; I just leave enough time to clasp them together, tie them up, and slip them on! </span></p> <p> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">So let’s get stacking Canada! The only thing that can go wrong with this trend is when you run out of arm space to stack onto, but that’s why we have so many fingers! ;) </span></p> <p> <span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">Looking for a new extra pieces to add to your collection to stack with?

In effect, it surrounds the much publicized dearth of Growth Capital available to entrepreneurs in Canada. Relative to the size of our market, the number of entrepreneurs, the capital available in other areas of the financial marketplace (Private Equity, Pension Funds, Mutual Funds, for example) Venture Capital is severely lagging. Most experts point to systemic inefficiencies and therefore sub par returns that the labour-sponsored venture capital corporation initiative brought to the market. </div> <div>  </div> <div> This environment represents a significant challenge for entrepreneurs and venture capital "angels" alike, as the next round of funding often must come from south of the border or not at all.  American venture capitalists are incredibly valuable to Canadian entrepreneurs, but the challenge is to get noticed by the "right" capital within a time frame that allows that business to thrive...and most start-ups do not have the budget to be engaging in full-blown roadshows in the US northeast or California. Hence, many fantastic ideas die on the vine or never get past the PowerPoint stage.</div> <div>  </div> <div> This issue is exacerbated for start-ups that are "pre-revenue." It appears that the vast majority of capital categorized as "venture" in Canada is targeting companies that can exhibit up to $5 million in trailing revenues - and many venture capital firms have this requirement in their charter, which precludes them participating in solid pre-revenue opportunities.</div> <div>  </div> <div> Given this environment, one may ponder the ability of <a href="http://SHOP.CA" rel="nofollow">SHOP.CA</a> to execute on its bold vision, which will undoubtedly require a significant amount of capital compared to other financial "raises" for pre-revenue ventures. However, it is precisely this bold vision that makes me supremely confident that we will find the right partner within Canada. There are not many start-ups that I have seen that can legitimately claim to have a business model that parallels the capital efficiencies within <a href="http://SHOP.CA" rel="nofollow">SHOP.CA</a>'s plan. Nor are there many that can scale as easily and hence be public market-ready as quickly. Having worked on, sold and executed several IPOs, I observe that a key differentiator for <a href="http://SHOP.CA" rel="nofollow">SHOP.CA</a> will be its sheer size. What other market has no dominate player and offers $1 billion in revenue to those that achieve less than 5 percent market share?</div> <div>  </div> <div> The other key differentiator within <a href="http://SHOP.CA" rel="nofollow">SHOP.CA</a> that will allow us to overcome this challenge is, to use consultants' parlance, its key success factor and barrier to entry: people. I have worked closely with all facets of the <a href="http://SHOP.CA" rel="nofollow">SHOP.CA</a> team over the last three months and am continually astounded by both the capability and character of the partners that executing on the <a href="http://SHOP.CA" rel="nofollow">SHOP.CA</a> mission.</div> <div>  </div> <div> In closing, it should be noted that although the venture market has been a challenging one for entrepreneurs in Canada, smart capital does rectify inefficiencies eventually, and this is starting to happen with the creation of world class Canadian entities such as OMERS Ventures and Tandem Expansion. In addition, the venture market is one of the primary beneficiaries of the perils of the "set it and forget it" approach many investors have taken in the the public markets. Clearly we are in a low return, high volatility environment, and it is my view that more and more capital will migrate to opportunities that are tangible and not subject to the vagaries of capital ratios in far away countries, such as backing great Canadian entrepreneurs with well-thought out business plans within markets that are ripe for expansion.</div> <div>  </div>

http://www.shop.ca/c/shop-blogs/canadian-online-shopping-its-going-whole-lot-better Wed, 02 May 2012 01:04:00 GMT <p> <strong>By Craig Rennick</strong></p> <div> <strong>Managing Partner, Colour </strong></div> <div> <strong>SHOP.CA, sales and business development advisor </strong></div> <div>  </div> <div> The online shopping experience in Canada could be so much more customer centric; thankfully, SHOP.CA is aiming to fill the void.  In my case, I’m currently signed up for eleven different eCommerce sites that will ship products to my home in Toronto.  I would say for every one I’ve signed up for and actually use I’ve initiated buying on another two, but abandoned them for a whole host of reasons.  I manage dozens of passwords, and I’m never sure what kind of shipping costs will be levied until I’m well into the order process.  In short, it can be a hassle shopping online in Canada, and I have absolutely no loyalty to the majority of sites, with the exception of online bookstores (yes, I still like to crack open a real book).</div> <div>  </div> <div> This past Christmas, my kids cut and paste images of things they wanted, leaving the work to their parents and grandparents to go through the process of finding a Canadian eCommerce site that sells those products in the first place.   And naturally, they would then move through the purchasing process only to run into hurdles along the way.  There must be an easier way!</div> <div>  </div> <div> Imagine, one Canadian e-shopping site that’s easy to use, with hundreds of retailers and millions of products.  A site with qualified Canadian vendors that requires only one profile set-up, provides free shipping plus awards loyalty points that can be used against future purchases.  SHOP.CA promises to be all of these things with a host of other planned features to make the online shopping experience what it should be:  fun, easy and rewarding.  It’s amazing that we Canadians have been compromising this long when it comes to shopping online.  SHOP.CA is way overdue and, I predict, will become the Canadian market leader in online shopping in very quick order.</div> <div>  </div> Blog:54a55c19-2b45-4126-ad08-afb159048755Post:af6d48cc-9bcb-4891-a411-516ab0470d7d On eCommerce Technology and Its Relevance to Our Suppliers http://www.shop.ca/c/shop-blogs/ecommerce-technology-its-relevance-suppliers Mon, 23 Apr 2012 19:11:00 GMT <p>  </p> <div> <strong>By Parham Mofidi</strong></div> <div> <strong>SHOP.CA lead software engineer, platform</strong></div> <div>  </div> <div> When <a href="http://SHOP.CA" rel="nofollow">SHOP.CA</a> launches, it will offer an authoritative selection of products, unparalleled service, and a social loyalty program that rewards members on every purchase.  Our product catalogue is made up of millions of Canadian products, supplied by some of Canada's biggest suppliers and companies.</div> <div>  </div> <div> What benefits does <a href="http://SHOP.CA" rel="nofollow">SHOP.CA</a> provide to suppliers, and how can a robust eCommerce platform help them utilize an alternate channel to sell products through?  An eCommerce platform is made up of several entities, each of which performs specific functionality, and each of which contributes in a small way to the way <a href="http://SHOP.CA" rel="nofollow">SHOP.CA</a> looks, feels, and functions.  Our platform does not only give customers a great user experience, but also gives our suppliers peace of mind that their products can be quickly searched for and easily purchased.</div> <div>  </div> <div> The eCommerce technology used by <a href="http://SHOP.CA" rel="nofollow">SHOP.CA</a> offloads all of the platform overhead of selling online for suppliers.  By doing this, suppliers can concentrate on their business and not have to worry about the technical aspects of running an eCommerce site.  At a high level, this means that an eCommerce platform like <a href="http://SHOP.CA" rel="nofollow">SHOP.CA</a> will take care of hosting supplier products and all supplier product information. |It will also take care of resizing, storing, and displaying all supplier product images, as well as take care of all payment processing for purchases.</div> <div>  </div> <div> Hosting supplier products and all product information isn't just limited to storing data.  Product information needs to be stored in such a way that it can be retrieved quickly and searched for efficiently.  Suppliers could have upwards of hundreds of thousands of products.  Think of your favourite Canadian company, and then think about how many products that company has in their inventory.  Likewise, think about how hard it would be to search through those products if they weren't organized in some logical way.  There exist several eCommerce solutions to take care of both the storage and searching of massive amounts of product data.  This allows suppliers to sell large quantities of inventory online, and empowers customers to easily find and purchase what they're looking for.</div> <div>  </div> <div> In addition to product information, product images pose a big problem for suppliers.  To give customers a good shopping experience online, suppliers need to be able to show product images for various colours, styles, and in several angles and sizes.  A single product can therefore have several images associated with it, and a key feature of an eCommerce platform is to be able to store and retrieve these images efficiently and quickly, to give customers the best user experience.  <a href="http://SHOP.CA" rel="nofollow">SHOP.CA</a> gives suppliers the ability to store several images for a single product in a way that is completely transparent to the supplier.</div> <div>  </div> <div> A big advantage of any eCommerce technology platform for suppliers is the fact that payment is completely taken care of.  Suppliers can be assured that their customers can pay for product purchases with several convenient methods, all of which will be seamlessly integrated by the eCommerce platform.  Suppliers get the benefit of additional revenue because we accept multiple forms of payment, and customers enjoy the ease of being able to shop online with their favourite form of payment.  Secure transactions are taken care of by the eCommerce platform in an error-free and fast way.</div> Blog:54a55c19-2b45-4126-ad08-afb159048755Post:99c73001-322e-4066-8727-2e7a74748521 SHOP.CA Blogger Roundup

http://www.shop.ca/c/shop-blogs/ecommerce-direct-response-tv-common Mon, 16 Apr 2012 21:20:00 GMT <p> <strong>By Ed Crain</strong></p> <div> <strong>President and CEO, Kingstar Direct and Kingstar Media</strong></div> <div> <strong>SHOP.CA marketing advisor</strong></div> <div>  </div> <div> Over 20 years ago as a junior producer at CFTO/Glen Warren, I was asked by a record company to cut 2-minute TV spots for an audio compilation of Elvis Presley’s Greatest Hits. It was essentially a video compilation of "sound hooks" – those single lyrics or phrases that identifies a song to a listener. Then we slapped on a pretty crude crawl of all the songs on the compilation that ran over the video footage and placed a large phone number across the bottom. </div> <div>  </div> <div> We handed the spot to a client with a bill for about $8,000 worth of editing and mixing, and moved on to our higher profile shows like "Stars on Ice", “Circus”, and even the TV adaptation of the Broadway show "The Elephant Man". Season budgets in the millions. But that phone number spot never left my mind. How did that business work? </div> <div>  </div> <div> A few years later after leaving the "mother ship" of CFTO and CTV and hooking up with partner Duane Andrews, we created half-hour music infomercials like “Dance Mix USA” and “The Love Collection,” executing what we referred to as the "Time Life Formula": hooks in a certain formula, crawls, supers, and a CALL TO ACTION (“Buy now please!”). These shows, both long and short form, generated millions of dollars in direct sales revenue from TV. </div> <div>  </div> <div> We negotiated small royalties by discounting our creative and production fees. We were literally "making money while we slept"! I never looked back. In 1995, we shot a fitness show called "The Power Rider" in the Promenade Mall north of Toronto with football star Frank Tarkington for about $85,000. The show grossed $150,000,000 in its first year on TV in North America. </div> <div>  </div> <div> With all direct-to-consumer sales from TV, credit cards were cashed and in the bank, usually 24 to 48 hours after the product was shipped. Infomercials were doing billions of dollars of direct consumer sales. We created brands like Tony Little’s Gazelle and Jack Lalannes Power Juicer, which sells in over 40 countries with sales in excess of 800M. </div> <div>  </div> <div> About 8 to10 years ago, TV marketers started to build relatively crude websites for their TV products where they could provide more information and also transact orders. They added a web address or unique URL below the phone number on the TV screen.  From 2003 to 2004, I am going to estimate that web sales accounted for less than 10% of a TV campaigns orders. But of course web sites and micro–order sites got better, and computer and online proliferation spread. Web sales nearly doubled every year. Today web sales account for an average of 50% or more of a TV campaign’s orders. In some cases with younger audiences those numbers can jump to 400%: that’s four web orders for every one TV order. Today we are launching web-only campaigns for some products that are too niche for the mass appeal and cost of TV.</div> <div>  </div> <div> Last year I attended SXSW Interactive in Austin, Texas because I wanted to break out of our traditional TV Infomercial seminar and trade show circuit. It blew my mind. Facebook stores, virtual shopping malls, video embedded email campaigns, virtual studios. I knew that our business was facing massive change. Traditional broadcast TV would give way to the digital world and broadband television. </div> <div>  </div> <div> I knew I had to find a strategic partner to help our Kingstar Group of companies maximize this opportunity and, in the process, uncover new ones. Enter my "conservative" investment advisor, and an introduction to Drew and Trevor and SHOP.CA. I was so impressed with their model that within about 30 days we had signed strategic partnership agreement/investments with my two companies, Kingstar Media Inc. and Kingstar Direct Inc., and I made a personal investment in the venture as well.  But wait there's MORE!...I ALSO gave them my offices (one of three)! </div> <div>  </div> <div> As a standing member of their board of advisors, I have enjoyed watching this story develop. Drew and Trevor have put together a stellar team of online and transactional talent. Their platform and launch strategy is impressive, and unprecedented in Canada. I encourage everyone to go to SHOP.CA and get involved. This is a true Canadian start-up story that you will be reading about in the business pages and online for years to come. </div> <div>  </div> <div> A few weeks ago, SHOP.CA and Kingstar Direct Inc. entered into a joint-venture agreement to launch SHOP.CA Live. With partners Bell Media and Akamai, we plan to have a live portal shopping channel activated in the third quarter of 2012. We are moving into a new space in the Distillery, combining all of our operations and building a new studio to generate this live feed. </div> <div>  </div> <div> The opportunities for SHOP.CA product partners to do live presentations on the site, and the opportunity to feature TV products from our long list of TV and Web marketers is significant. We at the Kingstar Group look forward to launch later this year, occupying front row seats as SHOP.CA grows to become Canada's premier online shopping destination. Go Team!</div> Blog:54a55c19-2b45-4126-ad08-afb159048755Post:45179ad4-2d3a-4926-b6af-ce8bd0fefd90 How Safe and Reliable is Online Shopping in Canada? http://www.shop.ca/c/shop-blogs/safe-reliable-online-shopping-canada Mon, 09 Apr 2012 20:55:00 GMT <p> <strong>By David Michaud</strong></p> <p> <a href="http://shop.ca/" style="color:rgb(17, 85, 204);font-family:Calibri, Tahoma, 'Trebuchet MS', 'Lucida Sans Unicode', 'Lucida Grande', 'Lucida Sans', Arial, sans-serif;font-size:14px;line-height:20px;text-align:left;background-color:rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.917969);" target="_blank">SHOP.CA</a><span style="color:rgb(26, 20, 20);font-family:Calibri, Tahoma, 'Trebuchet MS', 'Lucida Sans Unicode', 'Lucida Grande', 'Lucida Sans', Arial, sans-serif;font-size:14px;line-height:20px;text-align:left;background-color:rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.917969);"> Acting General Counsel</span></p> <div> A growing number of Canadians are shopping online for numerous reasons such as convenience, selection and competitive pricing.  According to Statistics Canada, we used the Internet to purchase $15.1 billion worth of good and services in 2009, and the market is expected to exceed $22 billion in 2012.  By 2015, online shopping will account for roughly $30 billion of the Canadian economy.  </div> <div>  </div> <div> Security and privacy concerns with respect to internet purchases have decreased for most shoppers.  This is even truer when it comes to people who had at least one experience making an online purchase or regularly use the internet. Also, after buying online, Canadians are a lot less reluctant to make other personal transactions online such as banking transactions. </div> <div>  </div> <div> Conventional retail shoppers who prefer the ability to physically inspect merchandise before purchase have adopted online shopping incrementally because it provides additional product information, comparative products and services, as well as various alternatives and features such as direct consumer reviews.</div> <div>  </div> <div> Shoppers should feel comfortable taking advantage of the convenience of online shopping provided it is from a trusted store such as SHOP.CA.  Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption has generally solved the problem of credit card numbers being intercepted between the consumer and the merchant as it encrypts personal and financial information so it can't be stolen by third parties. </div> <div>  </div> <div> Canada has been a leader in providing a legal framework for personal information protection that protects the privacy of individuals. Canadians may not always be aware of specific privacy risks or knowingly accept those risks as a trade-off to their privacy. However, we still have high expectations for privacy online and we are concerned about how our personal information is being used. With recent advances in technology, Canada’s regulatory framework has ensured a balance between the needs of business and the privacy rights of individuals are maintained and enforced. </div> <div>  </div> <div> In Canada, the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) applies to organizations that collect, use and disclose personal information in the course of a commercial activity. PIPEDA requires that the purposes for collecting, using and disclosing personal information be identified, typically at the time of collection. This law and its regulations has proven to be reliable by adapting to emerging technologies and business models that did not exist when initially put in place. With this law and its regulations, Canada is providing a privacy framework that protects the privacy of individuals. </div> <div>  </div> <div> Overall, most Canadians would agree that the benefits of online shopping clearly outweigh the risks in light of the protections in place for Canadian online shoppers. </div> Blog:54a55c19-2b45-4126-ad08-afb159048755Post:002b43b1-c434-484e-99d4-78a4edf93e62 How SHOP.CA Will Transform the e-Tail Landscape: An Investor's View http://www.shop.ca/c/shop-blogs/shopca-will-transform-e-tail-landscape-investors Thu, 05 Apr 2012 17:09:00 GMT <p> <strong>By Tim Quinn</strong></p> <div> <strong>Managing Director, Intelligent Office</strong></div> <div> <strong>SHOP.CA, entrepreneurial leadership advisor </strong></div> <div>  </div> <div> I was introduced to SHOP.CA in the spring of 2011 and was intrigued by the business model immediately: intrigued as a potential early stage investor, and intrigued as a Canadian consumer. As a “serial entrepreneur” I generally have a strict rule of only investing in private businesses when I have the ability to work hands on as part of the management and execution team. This policy, in theory, allows me to control my own destiny to a certain extent, and I have not deviated from this self-imposed rule – until now.</div> <div>  </div> <div> Two overwhelming and compelling factors propelled me to become an early stage private investor in SHOP.CA. Firstly, SHOP.CA will fill an enormous and previously unmet need for Canadian consumers with a proven but unique business model.  And secondly, the company’s founding and managing partners are experts in this space and have successfully executed on multiple occasion in the past. The more I learned about each individual member of the execution team, the more impressed I became.</div> <div>  </div> <div> Trust in the management team was the determining factor in becoming a passive investor, but it is the SHOP.CA model that brought me to the altar. Canadians do not have a comprehensive domestic eCommerce site with an authoritative selection of products, unparalleled service and a social loyalty program that rewards members on every purchase. With Canadian and worldwide eCommerce growing at an incredible exponential rate, this was an opportunity I did not want to miss. </div> <div>  </div> <div> I was asked to participate as a member of the Board of Advisors following my decision to invest, and it is an honour to be a small part of the launch of a company that I believe will be transformational for the Canadian e-tail landscape. As an entrepreneur who has seen companies both succeed and fail, this company has each and every element that, in my experience, has led to unbridled success.</div> Blog:54a55c19-2b45-4126-ad08-afb159048755Post:147ee91e-0c5e-4d88-9552-8677a5dd95e5 The Evolution of eCommerce http://www.shop.ca/c/shop-blogs/evolution-of-ecommerce Tue, 03 Apr 2012 00:58:00 GMT <p> <strong>Jason John</strong></p> <div> <strong>Senior Director, Online, Mobile and Social Marketing at Gilt Groupe</strong></div> <div> <strong>SHOP.CA eCommerce advisor</strong></div> <p> 2012 should be an exciting year to see the continual evolution of eCommerce. We have now moved beyond the "fad" stage of flash sales and daily deal sites, and we will see a blending of more functional and traditional eCommerce with the recently popularized game mechanics that make these new business models so engaging. We are also entering into an age of situational shopping, in which SHOP.CA is poised to be a model for future eCommerce businesses. In fact, SHOP.CA is at the convergence of Mobile, Social, and eCommerce in a global setting. </p> <p> Take these situations I have been in this past week: waiting for a train; catching up on Facebook on my laptop; browsing on my iPad in bed<br /> <br /> At any of these times, I could be engaged by a brand. However, my desired experience would be significantly different based on these situations. That's why I love working with SHOP.CA and really being at the forefront of this convergence. The SHOP.CA team understands we need to tailor experiences to satisfy consumer needs in a world where there is no off switch! As the premier shopping site in Canada, it is as much of a social experience as a eCommerce site, with true social shopping features and rewards programs. With cutting edge mobile experiences, we will also customize that service for the "on-the-go" customer. As mobile commerce is beginning to skyrocket in Canada, and across the globe, we are confident in our abilities to innovate and keep pace with the frenzied growth while following a "customer first" mantra. <br /> <br /> So some key questions we ask to be successful: how can we blend entertainment & commerce effectively and manage a premier brand image across channels? How do we personalize experiences across devices to satisfy every customer? How do we restructure customer service in a new media world? <br /> <br /> I look forward to answering these together and building the best shopping experience on the planet!</p> <p>  </p> Blog:54a55c19-2b45-4126-ad08-afb159048755Post:246661b4-15a6-4cc0-822e-71e503ebbb08 Defining User Experience in Canadian eCommerce http://www.shop.ca/c/shop-blogs/defining-user-experience-canadian-ecommerce Thu, 29 Mar 2012 22:14:00 GMT <p> <strong>By Scott Leblanc</strong></p> <div> <strong>SHOP.CA director, product experience</strong></div> <p class="p1"> What makes a great user experience? This is like asking what makes a great song, movie or piece of art. There is no formula, but for a song to be a number one hit, there are certain elements which <i>have</i> to be there such as melody, lyrical subject matter, technique, beat, etc. However, for a song to become regarded as a "classic," the difference between good and GREAT is creative energy and a certain amount of "X factor." At <a href="http://shop.ca/"><span class="s1">SHOP.CA</span></a> we want to have a GREAT user experience. We'll work on the lighter waving anthem later.</p> <p class="p1"> Like a good movie soundtrack, a good online experience can often go unnoticed. That is, until you come across one that is poorly done. To paraphrase an 80's hair metal band Cinderella, "Don't know what you got (Till it sucks)." This is not to say that a subtle experience is a bad thing. Even a GREAT online experience might blend into the background by design if that fits the audience, subject matter or aesthetic. <br /> <br /> Twitter has never really garnered a lot of attention for its general graphic design with its cute birds, pale blue colour palette and soft backgrounds. This is certainly not true of its functional design as the wave of sites with a similar, super clean and simple look and feel attest. Maybe Twitter is able to keep the user experience simple because they are (or were, at least) offering a service that is about as simple as you can get? How complicated can 140 characters really be? Quite complicated actually! It takes thought and hard work to make it so easy to use. <br /> <br /> All this effort is worth every minute and dollar for a social site like Twitter. It's all about getting people into the site and making them feel comfortable there day and night, so they can broadcast their every move or thought. Three easy form fields and one click, and you're on your way.  Once you're in and tweeting, nothing really draws your attention away from the text box, so you're free to enter your latest shoe purchase or to learn about your friend's latest favourite donut flavour. This is where an understated design provides a great user experience as it perfectly serves the audience and subject matter. Eye strain and distraction are not your friends if you want your loyal followers to spend hours on the same site writing and reading text. <br /> <br /> So how can you tell one online shopping experience from another? <a href="http://shop.ca/"><span class="s1">SHOP.CA</span></a> is a place to shop online, right? Indeed it is, but <a href="http://shop.ca/"><span class="s1">SHOP.CA</span></a> is creating something unique compared to your typical online store by deeply integrating sharing and rewards into a social shopping experience. Not only will <a href="http://shop.ca/"><span class="s1">SHOP.CA</span></a> offer millions of physical and digital products for sale, but your friends can also help you pick out that new TV and earn you real rewards at the same time! This unique approach brings unique challenges when it comes to user experience. <br /> <br /> One challenge is balancing traditional eCommerce product promotions, merchandising and marketing with social activity like a message or product recommendation from a friend so as to not sacrifice one or the other. The best approach in this situation (and in almost all product design situations) is to again consider the audience and subject matter and give them what they want and get out of the way. <br /> <br /> Getting out of the way in this context does not mean leaving the user to fend for themselves. Far from it, this implies that a user should be guided through the experience with the most economic use of words and related content as possible. This is indeed a challenge depending on your subject matter but having a "complicated" product or service does not mean it is pointless to try. <br /> <br /> Giving the user what they want is also challenging -- especially if you don't know who your users are! User testing through focus groups and A/B or multivariate testing is essential to ensure all pieces of your experience are providing the optimal experience and (*cough*) revenue. However, communicating directly with your users as often and as openly as possible is the only way to truly know and understand what they want. </p> <p class="p4"> This is the part of user experience design where the "X-factor" and creativity comes in. It is both art and science and those that can pull it off could be one of those sites you don't notice because they "just work" or could be an online experience so revolutionary you will want to wave your lighter high!</p> Blog:54a55c19-2b45-4126-ad08-afb159048755Post:50fe6da3-c5ff-4641-a591-07461cfbbb4f Building Better eCommerce for Canadians http://www.shop.ca/c/shop-blogs/building-better-ecommerce-canadians Mon, 26 Mar 2012 22:01:00 GMT <p> <strong>By Gary Black</strong></p> <div> <strong>SHOP.CA chief technology officer</strong></div> <div>  </div> <div> I've spent the better part of my professional life building technology for other people.  Out of school I worked in the banking industry, building mortgage systems and products - not really something I would use myself at the time, but an excellent learning opportunity about personal finance and the world of systems.  Five years later, something called Y2K came around.  For the millennial’s reading this: Google it or ask your parents!  It was the biggest deal in technology at the time (though soon to be quickly eclipsed by the rapidly growing Internet). The short version is that, in an effort to save money in memory and storage on computer systems, we truncated dates, so the date "95" was understood to mean "1995".   Of course when 2000 rolled around, the entire IT world wound up spending orders of magnitude more time than we'd saved undoing that earlier decision because "01" no longer meant "1901". I mention Y2K as it was against this backdrop that the Internet and eCommerce began to emerge in earnest, and at that time, a friend of mine suggested I join a start-up called FloNetwork.  </div> <div>  </div> <div> Not knowing much about start-ups but wanting a change from all the Y2K work at the bank, I decided to join him. Eight years on, we had built the biggest email marketing system in the world and would be bought (and later sold) by DoubleClick along the way.  During that amazing time - the "dot com boom" - I learned a ton about how start-ups work, how companies engage consumers on the Internet and how we can create really amazing technology to automate and make more relevant websites for consumers.  With the sale of DoubleClick, I moved on to another early stage tech company called Truition.  It was a company most would not have heard of, but our customers were household names everyone would know.  At Truition we built Software as a Service (also referred to as SaaS) eCommerce platform technology.  Our content management system was a platform for large-scale business to operate their eCommerce sites, and we took care of all of the technology, including hosting and managing the servers.  After five years, we sold that business to CDC Software in the US.  Again, a terrific learning experience, this time about what it takes to operate large-scale eCommerce sites and the features and functions merchandisers and marketers need to be successful.  You can see there was a pattern in my history:  I was always building technology that enables other business to be successful.  </div> <div>  </div> <div> But then along came SHOP.CA with an amazing vision - to build the biggest and best eCommerce site in Canada. One built for Canadians by Canadians.  I jumped at the chance to join. For the first time in my career, I was able be part of a company where we were the customers of the technology we were building.  We could apply all our energy and experiences into making something really great for our customers - my friends, my family and even myself!  </div> <div>  </div> <div> It's a privilege to be part of something that will redefine the online retail landscape in Canada.  We want to push the envelope in scale, in social commerce, in creating great mobile experiences.  In short, we want to give Canadians a site they can be proud of, one that is world class.  In this blog, we'll keep you up to date on all the amazing technology we're working on and building.  We've got a terrific team and a rich set of partners from the very best in the technology landscape - we'll be announcing some of those soon.  I'll get back to building SHOP.CA now - I look forward to seeing you on it soon!</div> <div>  </div> Blog:54a55c19-2b45-4126-ad08-afb159048755Post:d4d4cce4-1369-4d41-bc17-b2af9b671bb5 SHOP.CA | Customer Happiness http://www.shop.ca/c/shop-blogs/shopca-customer-happiness Thu, 22 Mar 2012 18:08:00 GMT <p> <strong>By Trevor Newell</strong></p> <p> <strong>SHOP.CA, co-founder</strong></p> <p> Shopping online in Canada lacks the level of service that Canadians deserve. Too often, we experience unpredictable costs such as duty and/or brokerage, poor delivery times and delays, fragment product selection, and on many occasions we keep a purchase we are not happy with because returns are simply too much effort or too costly.</p> <p> Here at <a href="http://shop.ca/">SHOP.CA</a>, we are online shoppers like you. We are your neighbours, family, friends and fellow Canadians, and we wondered why it was so hard to find friendly, polite service that goes the extra mile. It shouldn't be that hard to do.  We're Canadians, after all.  So, as <a href="http://shop.ca/">SHOP.CA</a> came into being, we made a commitment to make customers our first priority,  We think shopping online should be fun and rewarding, so that is what we've set out to create. </p> <p> Shopping has evolved, but Canadian customer service for online shopping has lagged in so many ways. eCommerce should also be easy, not just electronic, and we should not be treated only as transactions.  We want <a href="http://shop.ca/">SHOP.CA</a> to be easy and fun, a place where you can buy with confidence from fellow Canadians who are dedicated to fostering your happiness. This is why we designed <a href="http://shop.ca/">SHOP.CA</a> to make it easy for you to find everything you need. We made shipping and returns free, so you can relax and know that there won't be any extra costs if you need to send something back.</p> <p> We've also created <a href="http://shop.ca/">SHOP.CA</a> RewardsTM which you can earn with every purchase. You'll be able to browse and share with your friends and other shoppers. We are also building a customer service department designed to support you not just by answering the phone – we setting up support for all your channels including phone, email, onsite chat, Facebook, Twitter, and within our online shopping communities, forums, Questions and Answers pages, product ratings and reviews.</p> <p> Our <a href="http://shop.ca/">SHOP.CA</a> brand is focused on happiness; your happiness through all of your interactions with <a href="http://shop.ca/">SHOP.CA</a>.   We want the very best for ourselves, to have fun with our friends while we shop, share and earn rewards – and it's our goal to make every shopper happy, EVERY TIME!</p> <p> As Canadians we deserve better, better online shopping experiences. As Canadians we deserve to have fun and be happy while we shop online. This is why we created <a href="http://shop.ca/">SHOP.CA</a>.</p> Blog:54a55c19-2b45-4126-ad08-afb159048755Post:8af9a8a3-7f54-420f-ab29-378e55ec7dd2 The Time Is Now... http://www.shop.ca/c/shop-blogs/time-now Thu, 16 Feb 2012 18:55:00 GMT <p> <strong>By Drew Green</strong></p> <div> SHOP.CA founder and ceo</div> <div>  </div> <div> It is almost three years ago that I took a very close look at eCommerce in Canada.  I was a Canadian living in New York, and I was accustomed to the US eCommerce experience that had developed over the past decade while I was there to work, live and shop.  Canadian eCommerce data was hard to come by, and most of the people we talked to within the Canadian eCommerce industry were discouraged by the challenges for both the consumer and retailers in a market that was over $12 billion, but seemed stalled.</div> <div>  </div> <div> What we did find is that Canadians did buy online, that we are second in the world to South Korea on spend per capita, and often we were paying more for the same experience we should receive from a home grown market leader. Amazon.com and eBay.com who own 50%+ of the US eCommerce market combined were top online destinations for Canadians, and we were OK paying extra for this cross border shopping experience in the form of duty, higher shipping, and time of delivery -- There was no <a href="http://shop.ca/">SHOP.CA</a>. We also were shocked to find that Canadians' online average order value was incredibly low when compared to the US or other more developed eCommerce markets. It was clear that this was because we were forced to shop through multiple destinations and that the items we wanted to buy were either not well known, not available online, not easy to find, or only available south of the border, where in fact, two-thirds of our online spending was and is taking place. Canadians were faced with frustration, lack of choice and price transparency, and higher costs for something that should add ease convenience and savings to their lives. For example, a typical Canadian shopper might say, “What do you mean I can’t return this item, Mr. US Retailer --- I just paid duty, surprise brokerage fees and extra shipping?”  Again, there was no <a href="http://shop.ca/">SHOP.CA</a>.</div> <div>  </div> <div> Then came 2010 and 2011, when a true inflection point in the market started to form. Retailers starting investing millions of dollars in their front- and back-end infrastructure, offering products never available online by a Canadian companies before; niche eCommerce players invested in their specific category focus; consumers took notice of both established and newcomer vertical leaders; and Q4 2011 produced record online sales and eCommerce growth numbers by Canadian retail and manufacture supply partners. Even the Canadian press took notice, with weekly articles throughout 2011 outlining the growing choice north of the border and the excitement growing within certain Canadian consumer demographics. The time had come to go all in and invest in <a href="http://shop.ca/">SHOP.CA</a>!</div> <div>  </div> <div> 2012 Canadian eCommerce will grow to over $22 billion according to Google. This dollar figure is more than $5 billion larger than the entire consumer wireless market in Canada, but with no true market leader.  <a href="http://shop.ca/">SHOP.CA</a> has invested for this year and the decade to come. Our mission is clear and concise, and it is with a great deal of national pride that the 25 Canadian individuals involved in <a href="http://shop.ca/">SHOP.CA</a> aim, every single day, to create something truly special, just for Canada, by Canadians.</div> <div>  </div> <div> This spring we will introduce a unique Canadian experience that combines an authoritative selection of products across 25+ categories, unparalleled service that includes free shipping and free returns, a proprietary social loyalty program that rewards members on every purchase, plus the added fun of allowing members to earn points for sharing – all at a cash back rate higher than ever launched in Canada through any other loyalty program.</div> <div>  </div> <div> The time is now for a Canadian market leader like <a href="http://shop.ca/">SHOP.CA</a> to emerge and for Canadians to have a compelling reason to spend more of their online dollars with Canadian suppliers willing to meet and exceed their expectations.</div> <div>  </div> Blog:54a55c19-2b45-4126-ad08-afb159048755Post:f6e256ec-22f5-4bf5-b608-fda75112599e
