It’s Christmas in October thanks to UNIQLO.
As the weather begins to cool down outside, the Japanese casual wear retailer will be giving away thousands of HEATTECH items in downtown Montreal on October 4 and 5.
In total, 50,000 HEATTECH items will be given away in five cities across the country by the end of the fall, including Montreal, Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver and Winnipeg.
Of the 50,000 items, 5,000 will be donated directly to local charities. Dans la rue will be receiving a donation of 1,000 items to help the homeless and at-risk youth.
‘Heattech’ is an extra warm fabric that absorbs moisture generated by the body before converting it into heat.
And according to the company, it is an ideal item of clothing for people across Canada spending long hours working outside in freezing temperatures.
“We are pleased to be donating 5,000 HEATTECH items to charities and giving away 45,000 items in five cities across the country starting Thursday, September 6 in Toronto,” said Yasuhiro Hayashi, Chief Operating Officer of UNIQLO Canada. “We’re excited for Canadians to discover HEATTECH, a product so central to everyday living that for many people it is the definition of LifeWear, clothing thoughtfully created to make everyday life better and more comfortable.”
To receive a free sample, customers and fans are invited to find the HEATTECH activation, download the UNIQLO app and follow the steps to complete membership registration.
Montrealers are invited to follow @UNIQLOCanada to find out the exact location of this week’s giveaways.
