Canadian Tire receives Best Christmas Store award
Canadian Tire in Kapuskasing was awarded Best Christmas Store(Small) at the Canadian Tire Dealer convention held earlier in the year for its Christmas display in 2016.
KAPUSKASING: Canadian Tire in Kapuskasing was awarded Best Christmas Store (Small) at the annual Canadian Tire Dealer convention earlier this year for its Christmas display.
“There are three awards for Christmas Stores at the convention,” said owner Mathieu Gauthier. “The other two winners were bigger stores in larger locations, and we're the ones that won the Small Store award.”
He said that the store was proud of the win, especially since last year marked the first time the Kapuskasing location did something large.
“We started by having a vision last year after we determined that we have the space and realizing we could do something really good,” Gauthier said. “It also went a little bit with what the town of Kapuskasing does with the Festival of Lights and we wanted to do our own thing inside the store to create a little bit of excitement, thankfully people responded really well.”
As a result of their successes, Gauthier said the team was encouraged to step it up a notch this year.
“The whole team has worked really hard, put in a lot of time, and have done great decorating,” he said.“It's worth coming in to check out.”
