(Fort McMurray, AB – November 26, 2020) – The Wood Buffalo 2022 Arctic Winter Games Merchandise Store is pleased to offer Click and Collect service allowing individuals to shop online and pick up their items at 109-9904 Franklin Avenue. The online service launches with the accompaniment of a 15% discount for Black Friday from November 26 – 28, available through the website using the code BF15 and in-store.
This new initiative launched to support public safety and reduce in-store interactions while preparing for the busy Holiday Season.
“We want to provide the public with options to shop safely and confidently, whether using our new Click and Collect service or shopping in-store this holiday season,” said Kim Rizzi, General Manager of the Wood Buffalo 2022 Arctic Winter Games. “This new online service will further enhance in-store safety by minimizing customers’ time within the physical location while providing access to our full line-up of Games wear and accessories.”
This exciting announcement is the next phase in the rollout of the Merchandise Store, which opened softly last month. The current collection features cozy matching lounge wear sets in unisex sizing for both adults and youth along with a variety of colourful accessories.
Once an order is placed through the Merchandise Store online shop at awg2022.square.site, customers will receive an email when their package is ready to be picked up. Those shopping inside the store between Wednesday and Saturday from 12-6 p.m. are required to wear a face covering as per Municipal Bylaw 20/024.
New merchandise will continue to launch between now and Games time, March 6-12, 2022. Online store shipping is not available at this time and is set to launch in 2021.
“Merchandise is a key souvenir component to the Games and we are thrilled to highlight our event through the launch of the Merchandise Store as we make our way to 2022,” said Melissa Blake, Co-chair of the Wood Buffalo 2022 Arctic Winter Games Host Society Board of Directors. “As a Host Society, we are excited to provide participants, visitor and residents with memorabilia that reflects the life-time of memories the Games will create for our community and across the Circumpolar North.”
The Wood Buffalo 2022 Arctic Winter Games Host Society would like to recognize the value-in-kind donation of the Merchandise Store retail space sponsored by River’s Edge Community Resort.
“Our region is full of amazing community supporters and we are grateful for the continued collaboration of partners, stakeholders and sponsors who make the Games possible,” said Rizzi. “We are excited to have our Merchandise Store and Games Operations Centre conveniently located in Downtown Fort McMurray so we can align our initiatives with the region’s vision of downtown revitalization.”
