Introducing the 14 Day Challenge: Schick® is asking Canadian men to
current razor and try a Schick Hydro™ for two weeks
TORONTO, Feb. 15 /CNW/ - Canadian men have a love-hate relationship with
shopping. Though men find shopping slightly more irritating than
shaving (38% vs. 32%) overall they enjoy it, with 53% of Canadian men
admitting they secretly love to shop, according to a recent poll by
The survey also shows that price has the greatest impact on men's
purchase decisions, with 84% of Canadian men influenced by price. The
biggest irritant for male shoppers was buying something that doesn't
perform as advertised (51%) followed closely by paying more than they
have to (48%).
"This won't come as a complete shock, but when it comes to shopping men
are pretty simple creatures. We want to buy products that perform as
advertised for a good price. That is why we created the 14 Day
Challenge," says Josh Gardner, Schick Brand Manager, Energizer Canada.
"We are asking men to stop using their current razor for a Schick
Hydro. We are so sure they will fall in love with the Hydro that if
they are not 100% satisfied with the Schick Hydro, we will give them
their money back."
All men, including the 51% of men who are irritated when something
doesn't perform as advertised, are encouraged to visit www.facebook.com/SchickHydroCanada and sign up for the Schick Hydro 14 Day Challenge - because we
guarantee our performance. Participants are automatically entered in a
draw to win one of 14 grand prize trips for two to Las Vegas or one of
14 Apple iPads.
"Irritation can come in many forms from shaving to shopping. Schick
Hydro has helped reduce the first, now we are tackling the second --
shopping irritation - by guaranteeing satisfaction with the Schick
Hydro 14 Day Challenge," says Gardner.

conducted an online survey among a randomly selected, representative
sample of 1,057 Canadian men who are Angus Reid Forum panel members.
Individuals were sampled according to Census data to be representative
of the Canadian national adult male population. The full dataset has
been statistically weighted according to the most current age, region
(and in Quebec, language) Census data to ensure a sample representative
of the entire adult population of Canada.
