Countdown to Christmas: Zellers Announces 24 Hour Shopping Plus Price Cuts on Toys, Gift Wrap and Cards



    TORONTO, Dec. 19 /CNW/ - Running out of time to get ready for the
Holidays? Zellers has the answer. Starting today, more than 60 Zellers stores
across Canada will offer 24 hour shopping until December 24, 2007. Zellers
will also offer great savings by cutting prices on hundreds of toys, as well
as on gift wrap and holiday greeting cards.
    "We know that many Canadians have yet to start shopping for everyone on
their list," said Nick Padovano, SVP, Stores. "Zellers is ready to serve you
with extra hours leading up to Christmas, and great prices on toys. Our buyers
have found additional savings on some of the biggest toys for the holidays."
    Hundreds of toys have been price cut in time for Christmas:

    
    -   Barbie Island Princess Rosella and Luciana from $26.99 to $19.99
    -   Leapster Learning Game system from $79.99 to $59.99
    -   Test Tube Aliens from $19.99 to $9.99
    -   Dora's Let's Get Ready Vanity from $99.99 to $59.99
    

    In addition to cutting prices on toys, Zellers will also lower its prices
on gift wrap, greeting cards, books and magazines. Customers will receive the
U.S. price on the item thanks to negotiations between Hudson's Bay Company and
its vendors.
    Zellers stores open 24 hours from today until December 24, 2007 are:
