TORONTO, Sept. 15 /CNW/ - In the wake of rebranding its retail stores
across Canada, Sony of Canada Ltd. is inviting Canadians to 'Experience the
Wonder' of Sony Style and to participate in celebrations across Canada this
"Sony Style locations are focused on bringing a unique, interactive,
electronics shopping experience to our customers," says Robin Powell, Vice
President, Retail Division, Sony of Canada Ltd. "Our goal is to ensure our
customers experience a feeling of wonder as they interact with the complete
line of innovative Sony products, including Full HD Sony BRAVIA televisions,
Sony PlayStation(R) consoles and games, digital imaging products and VAIO

this growth and the stores' rebrand, Sony Style will be hosting 'Wonder
Walkers' events, which emulate the feeling of wonder the company strives to
bring to its customers: towering above the masses, stilt-walking performers -
'Wonder Walkers' - will entertain residents of Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto and
Montreal and capture the expressions of wonder and amazement on people's faces
as they gaze up.
