Magical Mystery Tour is Hoping to Take You Away…

Well, well! We’re getting closer to announcing the winners of our Magical Mystery Bus Ride, taking place this Saturday! Just recently the fabulous gang at CITY-TV’s Breakfast Television (I joked I had been called in to be Dina Pugliese’s stunt double!) helped pick a slew of winners, as has John Donabie of CFRB 1010 Talk Radio fame. And Sun-TV has given us a hand in helping pick winners, too. We’ll be picking ours shortly for a chance at VIP service in luxury Pacific Western buses thanks to Tourism Toronto to visit some of the top warehouse sales in the GTA, plus a chance to win a host of prizes including a $1,000 shopping spree at Niagara Fashion Outlets and two nights stay for four at the Crowne Plaza in Buffalo, fabulous food baskets from Metro Food Stores, a dynamic Dyson vacuum cleaner, breakfast courtesy of Golden Griddle, lunch courtesy of Pizzaville and tons of treats, including making lasting new friends along the way! Until then, enjoy the following sales:
