Mall is redefining this teen hangout with the unveiling of Canada's first ever
mall-based Teen Lounge. Complete with a charge bar for mp3 plug-in, mirror
displays, fashion closet, tv screen, and surfboard surroundings, the Teen
Lounge epitomizes the five pillars of teen culture: music, entertainment,
sports, fashion, and technology, which come together to form the ultimate teen
environment. The unveiling will kick off two weeks of promotions, giveaways,
demonstrations and activities taking place at Upper Canada Mall during the
busy back-to-school shopping season.
    The Teen Lounge launch will also mark the premier of Upper Canada Mall's
newest web endeavour, a webisode chronicling a group of five
teenage characters and their adventures at the shopping centre. The animated
program will also introduce teens to specific promotions and events happening
at the centre, including a giveaway of a personal teen lounge valued at
$4,000! The online contest invites teens to explain why they deserve to win,
and web visitors will be able to vote for their favourite.
    And while some teens will be lounging, others will be checking out the
Fashion 411 exhibit, highlighting the coolest trends for back-to-school.
Mannequins merchandised by various retailers will provide fashion-forward
ideas for this year's grooviest school gear, and MAC make-up Mondays will
ensure teens are beauty secret savvy through free demonstrations and raffle
opportunities. A full list of activities and promotions marking the launch of
