Dragons Den Sneak Peek Thanksgiving Event!

dragons den logoThanksgiving weekend is almost upon us and we here at Retro Festive are thankful that the CBC hit show Dragon’s Den will be visiting our Oakville Christmas Warehouse Store this Saturday, October 10 to film an update about our festive business. The best part is YOU’RE invited to join us!

This is your chance to jump start your Christmas shopping and also appear on prime time TV! It all happens Saturday October 10, 2015, from 10am til 2pm. Our first 50 customers will receive a FREE moose mug!

Retro Festive Dragons Den Pitch

Here’s a quick refresher: Back in 2011, RetroFestive founders Tyler and Jordie appeared on Dragon’s Den to pitch their crazy idea for a business retailing Pop Culture Christmas gifts and memorabilia. Here’s a clip of their appearance.

Although intrigued, the Dragons ultimately didn’t buy into the business and Jordie and Tyler were sent walking.  But the couple continued to build RetroFestive into a Canadian online retail success story! Sales have grown ten times since their Dragons Den appearance four years ago. And now CBC is sending a crew to shoot an update that will air during a December episode of Dragons Den.

Normally, our seasonal Christmas Store doesn’t open until November 1st, but because Dragons Den is coming, we want to fill our store with customers. So we’re throwing open our doors three weeks early for a special Sneak Peek event!

Come check out all of our New Items for 2015, most of which haven’t been posted to our website yet. We’ve got some surprises in store for our loyal customers, including an appearance by a Barbershop Quartet singing Christmas tunes and a visit by Santa Claus himself. Plus, did we mention that our first 50 customers receive a Free Moose Mug?

Cheers to Dragons Den!
