Yesterday I took the skytrain out to Metropolis at Metrotown in Burnaby to pick up the prize I won on the radio show earlier this week. I used to get lost in that mall -- it's HUGE -- but not so much anymore, so I had a pretty good idea where to find this store.
I had called earlier in the week to confirm where they were and asked then what my fabulous prize was .... it was a $25 gift card to the store. Nice! When I got there yesterday I asked if they have other locations I could check out to use the card at, but the only other one they have is out in Langley ... I don't even know where Langley is ... so I figured I'd best just use the card then and there, since I only go out to Metrotown a couple times a year.
Being the bargain hunter that I am, of course I went straight to the back of the store where the clearance and sale stuff was. I browsed around a bit until I found something I liked, tried it on and voila - I had my prize. I got some Vancouver Canucks lounge pants (kinda like yoga pants, very comfy) and a matching tank top. Together they were regularly priced at $50, marked down to $24.98 for the pair, so I ended up just paying the tax, under $3. I do loves a great deal!
