Historic Photo Opportunity - The First Mall in Calgary - Celebrates 50 Years - September 22nd to 27th, 2008

    CALGARY, Sept. 18 /CNW/ - Opened in 1958, North Hill Centre is
celebrating the generations of a community and its centre for 50 years. North
Hill Centre was the first mall to open in Calgary and in 1958 this style of
shopping was considered revolutionary. In 1973 North Hill Centre expanded by
adding 20 new stores and updating the enclosure, then in 2000 North Hill
Centre had a significant renovation. Through it all the community has stood by
our side in support of all the changes and we are humbled and grateful.
    It is for this we celebrate our 50th Anniversary alongside the
generations and our community. The grandparents who shop with their children
and the grown children who shop with their kids and the young tweens and
students who now check out the centre.
    We are very excited and in celebration, our customers can win a $10,000
Family Reunion, where we will fly a family to any destination as well as a
$2,000 family picnic and a $1,000 digital photo package. The contest has
already begun and starting Monday, September 22nd - Friday, September 26th,
North Hill Centre will be offering their customers daily door crasher
specials. All proceeds from this and many other events will be donated to the
