BRAMPTON, ON, Nov. 22, 2012 /CNW/ - Come one! Come all! On Friday, November 30, join us at the Loblaws® store at Maple Leaf Gardens* as we host a fabulous party called Food's Greatest CelebrationTM to mark the store's one year anniversary.
"We're so proud to be a part of the community and appreciate the warm

the President's Choice® Giant Holiday Gingerbread House and take part in the special merriment we have planned," said Marcello
Piane, store director, Loblaws® store at Maple Leaf Gardens*.
Behold the sweetest house in the city!
On Friday, November 30 a magical and amazing President's Choice Giant Holiday Gingerbread House comes to life in the Canteen. The edible house will be quite a sight to see soaring almost to the
height of the store's well-known cheese wall and about as long as our
popular deli counter. It will be decorated with over 700 pounds of
colourful candy, including 5,000 mini candy canes! The house will be
complete with Christmas trees, festive trimming, and surrounded by
mounds of snowy white and warmed up by the glow of a cozy fireplace.
Ho, Ho, Ho… Santa!
Beginning November 30 and every weekend until the end of the holiday season, Santa will be in the "house" eager to get the scoop on what's on your
holiday wish list. His elves will be on hand to take pictures and to
help you decorate your very own gingerbread men cookies. Nibble your
creations knowing that all proceeds from purchases of these gingerbread
men cookies will be donated to the President's Choice® Children's Charity.
Little elves with a flair for food are invited to have Breakfast with
Santa, when a special PC Cooking School class for kids takes place December 2 from 10 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. On the menu are yummy treats like pancakes, syrup, biscuits with jam
toppings, orange juice and lots of fun! Breakfast with Santa is open to
all ages and costs $10 per person. Register here.
A true celebration wouldn't be complete without a bunch of great prizes
and giveaways! That's why the first 400 customers through the doors at 7 a.m. on November 30 will receive a slice of cake with an instant win prize that could be a
yummy treat from the store or even one prize for $5,000 worth of Loblaws gift cards.
