Attention all proud procrastinators, serious stragglers and diehard delayers: You can put off your Christmas shopping until the very, very, very last minute this year.
Forget about squeezing your way through a busy, crowded mall and facing frowns from your family when they find out its Christmas Eve and you still haven't bought your Aunt Karen a gift yet. Skittles is encouraging your procrastination this year by celebrating all those devoted dilly-dalliers who put off their Christmas shopping until the last possible moment with the Skittles Last Minute Gift Shop.
The store will be located at 423 Queen Street West and will open at 11:59 p.m. on Christmas Eve, allowing pro procrastinators to successfully put off their shopping until the last minute.
Each of the first 60 people in line will leave with a last-minute gift... with a fun Skittles twist, of course! Think, for a moment, about presenting the person you forgot to buy anything for with a Skittles-encrusted ukulele. Sounds like you just won Christmas to me! The store will remain open until 12:59 a.m.
So if you find yourself at home on Christmas Eve just now realizing you forgot something for that particular someone, no stress. You don't have to rummage through your things to figure out which one of your sweaters looks like it could pass as a brand new, thoughtful gift; you just have to get yourself to 423 Queen Street West, Unit 112, one minute before Christmas.
Skittles also has you covered with its online store, which is opening its virtual doors 11:59 p.m. on December 24, for one minute only. Canadians can visit www.SkittlesLastMinute.ca during the one minute to receive a coupon for $2 off select (151g, 191g and 320g) packs of Skittles candy.
Give yourself even more reason to do no shopping before the last minute this holiday season and trust your gift-giving rep to Skittles!
