Jingle all the way... to an A&P or Dominion store this holiday season



    ETOBICOKE, ON, Dec. 6 /CNW/ - From holiday hosting to shopping for gifts,
there are plenty of things to keep Ontarians busy this holiday season. A&P and
Dominion stores are easing the holiday pressure for customers with convenient
shopping hours and great deals. With more than 124 stores open 24 hours a day,
7 days a week across Ontario, A&P Canada stores will be open to serve
customers for more hours than any other grocery retailer in the province.
    "We know that our customers have to juggle a number of events and
activities during this time of year," said Doug Brummer, vice president,
marketing and corporate development. "Our goal is to help provide them with
convenient shopping hours, the freshest food, value added services and great
deals to make their holiday preparations simpler."
    A&P, Dominion, Ultra Food & Drug and The Barn stores will kick off the
holiday season with a special AIR MILES offer. From this Friday, December 7
until Sunday, December 9, 2007 customers will earn seven times the AIR MILES
reward miles when they spend $70 in store.

    Customers can find everything they need for holiday gifts and
entertaining with over 60 new products in A&P and Dominion stores this holiday
season. Choose an A&P Dominion gift card for the foodie on your shopping list
or for added variety, choose from more than 100 gift cards available from more
than 40 retailers including The Keg, Home Depot or Starbucks.
    Holiday shopping items can add up quickly, so A&P Canada is reducing all
greeting cards and wrapping by 25% for a limited time to lighten the bill. A&P
Canada's limited edition reusable holiday bag, made from 100 per cent recycled
material, is an affordable alternative to wrap up holiday gifts in an
environmentally-friendly style. More than 80,000 limited edition holiday bags
have already been sold and are still available for just $.99 at all A&P Canada
stores.
