Giving a whole new meaning to feeling “right at home,” Vancouver-based Canadian retailer, Urban Barn, and longtime employee, Robbie Romu, are teaming up this February 12 – 28 to bring the company’s mantra to life at its 818 Howe Street location in downtown Vancouver for everyone to experience. While remaining open to the public, the retail space will be transformed into an open-concept and fully functional home that Robbie will live in, 24-hours a day, for 17 consecutive days. Video cameras will capture Robbie’s every move “big brother-style”, and he’ll be tweeting and updating his facebook status along the way. Everyone’s invited to stop by, hang out with Robbie, enjoy special events and be a part of the fun!

I will draw the winners randomly on Monday February 15. The contest closes Sunday at Midnight!
I will notify winners via email and/or twitter and at that point I will also be sending your information to Urban Barn as the gift cards will be waiting for you at their Howe Street location (818 Howe Street) in Downtown Vancouver. Although you can enter twice (via commenting and twitter) you can only win one.
