Brentwood Town Centre Fills Back-to-School Backpacks

Last weekend, Brentwood Town Centre kicked off the school year with a bang. The shopping center invited three contest winners to fill up for back to school with its Fill Your Backpack Shopping Spree.

The three lucky shoppers showed up at Brentwood on Saturday already knowing they’d end the day as big winners – their names had been drawn earlier in the week. Each of the winners was given a Brentwood Backpack to fill and $500 in gift cards to spend on the spot. They had two hours to shop for their winnings, but the shopping center offered each of them an extra $25 card for finishing in under and hour, and all three managed to make it in under 40 minutes.

While the winners shopped, the event was covered by local radio announcer Olivia Jones. She offered tips on Brentwood Back-to-School Fashion Picks and made some shoppers’ days with $10 gift card giveaways.

At the end of the shopping spree, all three shoppers emerged victorious. Christopher Yuen, 11 years old, finished in under 22 minutes, snagging a PSP and a camcorder. Angela Harrison, a 21-year-old University Student, hit fashion retailers and boutiques, and managed to try on and purchase clothes for herself, a purse for herself, and gifts for her family and boyfriend in under 36 minutes. She planned ahead, scoping out purchases for two days in advance. Finally, Francis Loo, 34 years old, took things cautiously, price checking for a video game system and taking home a bit of money to spare.

Another big winner at the event was Burnaby Family Life. The charitable organization was given a cheque for Brentwood’s donations this year at a special ceremony during the event.
