January 29, 2009 // Franchising.com // Burlington, Ontario, – Gamer Doc™, the retail video game store that delivers a new and interactive customer experience, today announced that the Burlington store is celebrACating its grand opening, Feb. 2 – Feb. 28, 2009, and will be giving away a Wii® console each week. The festivities begin at 11:00 a.m. on Feb. 2, when Burlington Mayor Cam Jackson performs the official ribbon-cutting ceremony, after which refreshments will be served.
"We want everyone to visit our store and enjoy the Gamer Doc experience, so we are celebrating the entire month of February," said James Bajc, store owner. "Everyone is invited to come in and sign-up to win a Wii console or a store credit if they already have one. We will be holding a drawing every Friday at 7:00 p.m., and will announce the winner's name. If they are not present at that time, we will contact them to come in and claim their prize."
The first Wii drawing will be held on Feb. 6th, and T-shirts and wristbands will also be awarded as door prizes throughout the month. Refreshments will also be served each week during the Wii drawing.
"Video games offer families the best value for their entertainment dollar, which is one of the reasons they are rapidly becoming more popular than watching TV, going to sporting events, concerts or movies," Bajc said. "The Wii console is especially fun, because the whole family can participate and even get some exercise as they bowl, play tennis, golf, or baseball."
The Burlington Gamer Doc store is located at 3350 Fairview Street. Store hours are from 11:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and from 11:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. on Sunday. The store telephone number is 905-631-8390 and the website is http://www.gamerdoc.com/locations.aspx.
