I’m not much of a shopper. In fact, most of the time I really really dislike it. I know some people find it fun but for me it’s yet another chore to add to my list. Holiday shopping – well, that’s the worst! The crowds, the noise, the hustle and bustle just make me want to hide until it’s all over with. And yet, I have gifts to buy so I have to venture out to the mall, no matter how much I dislike it.
But wait….there’s more. If shopping itself during the holidays isn’t stressful then what about just getting into the mall in the first place. Mall parking lots – YIKES! Driving around and around searching for an open space and when you finally find one, you see three other cars all vying for the same spot. What if….what if you could have someone else take care of parking your vehicle? You just hop out at the entrance to the mall, hand your keys over the valet, and off you go! FREE valet parking! That’s pretty painless, right?
Now picture if you will, a little oasis in the middle of the mall….a place where you can relax in a comfy chair, put your feet up, have some free treats and beverages, all with the beautiful sounds of Christmas music being played on the piano.
You enter and instantly feel the burden lifted from your shoulders and the stress of the day of shopping just melting away. Ahhhhhhhh……..
And as you sit there relaxing, perhaps checking your phone or reading a magazine, your purchases are being gift wrapped for you. (for free of course!) I’ve always said I wanted my own little crew of minions (or perhaps elves is a better choice for the season) and there they are taking care of yet another chore for me. Once you are sufficiently rested and relaxed, you head back out into the mall to finish your shopping.
Ugh – but you’re going to be overheated in your winter coat and your arms are going to feel like they’re falling off from lugging around all your purchases. Oh but wait – the elves will take care of it. They’ll happily store your coat and packages for you in the coat and parcel check (say it with me this time, for FREE!) so you can complete your shopping in comfort.
Sound like a fantasy? Well it is for a non-shopper like me (and probably even for the most ardent shopaholics out there too!) but in this case it’s a fantasy come true with the RBC Avion Holiday Boutique. They give you the full #AvionVIP treatment at their locations in the Halifax Shopping Centre from December 1-24, Yorkdale Shopping Centre. Square One Shopping Centre, and Coquitlam Shopping Centre all open now until December 31. Best of all, it’s all free for Avioners!
