Have you ever imagined yourself dressed in a snowman costume and running frantically around a room? Well, you should.
On Friday, Dec. 9, Conestoga College’s Bookstore is giving a student the opportunity to leave the store with as much product as he or she can hold.
The only catch is the winner will have to wear a snowman costume.
Given only 35 seconds, the student, dressed as a snowman, will run through the store and grab as many items as he or she can carry.
To enter the contest student have to purchase a sale item and/or make a Food Bank donation at the Bookstore any time before the contest. The contest will be held at the Doon campus.
“We haven’t started yet, but we’re excited for the shopping spree,” said Quinn Battersby, promotion manager of the Bookstore. “We hope students bring canned goods to support the cause.”
That’s not the only surprise the Bookstore has up its sleeve for you. With Christmas just around the corner, they are offering huge discounts on some items.
On Thursday, Dec. 1, mugs and water bottles will be on sale for $5 and tumblers for $10. The following day, T-shirts will be $7 and track pants $20. On Dec. 5, lanyards will sell for $2.50 and winter gear can be purchased for $10 and up. Tuesday, Dec. 6, there will be $5 off of USB drivers and $10 pyjamas. On Wednesday you can grab bags for as low as $10. Last but not least, on Thursday, the program specific hoodies are only $15.
The Bookstore is located on the second floor of the Doon campus. For more information, contact Quinn Battersby at 519-748-5220, ext. 2245, or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org
