What do furniture, food and the Bulldogs have in common? Jowsey’s!

Jowsey’s Furniture is once again offering free delivery with the donation of a non-perishable food item.

Bulldogs’ new business manager Tali Campell liked the idea so much he threw in two tickets to the Dec. 3 game for anyone who donates at Jowsey’s. To top it off, Jowsey’s will have their truck at that game and the goal is to have fans fill it up with food donations. www.jowseys.ca

To help offset the costs for servicing an appliance, The Brick is offering to Sears extended warranty holders a $100 gift card that can be used toward future purchases at The Brick.
