EDMONTON, March 28, 2014 - (CNW) For over 42 years, The Brick has partnered with Canadian manufacturers to provide everyday low prices on Canadian made upholstered furniture. From April 3 to 30, 2014 The Brick is proud to showcase their Canadian partnerships with Canadian upholstery manufacturers by launching the first ever "Proudly Canadian Event". This event will prominently feature upholstered furniture items designed and manufactured by Canadians for Canadians.
"We are proud to feature Canadian-made sofas, sectionals and loveseats," said Jim Caldwell, President of The Brick. "There is no better time to buy Canadian inspired furniture at unbeatable prices than during The Brick's Proudly Canadian Event." Canadian manufacturers are vital to the health of our economy: they employ skilled Canadian artisans, and support the economic conditions in numerous Canadian communities. By using many Canadian-made and -sourced supplies, customers know they have purchased inspired designs made from quality Canadian materials that support Canada's furniture industry.
As part of the Proudly Canadian Event, The Brick is excited to be joining forces with Wounded Warriors, a non-profit organization that supports Canadian military and veterans who have been injured while serving Canada. For every piece of Canadian-made furniture purchased at The Brick from April 3 to 30th, 2014, The Brick will make a donation to Wounded Warriors of $5 per piece and up to $25 if three pieces are purchased together.
The Brick is also extending to all Canadian military members and veterans, an extra 5% off the purchase price of Canadian upholstered furniture from April 3 to 30th, 2014.
"The Brick team members wanted to show their support for the Canadian military and their families. As a proud Canadian company, this is The Brick's way of showing its sincere appreciation for the sacrifice that Canadian military members and their families make to protect and serve our great country", noted Mr. Caldwell. "This is our small way of saying thank you to the Canadian military and their families."
Scott Maxwell, Executive Director of Wounded Warriors Canada, commented, "We are pleased that great Canadian companies like The Brick understand the sacrifice these men and women have made for Canada. By taking the initiative and leading this Proudly Canadian Event in support of Wounded Warriors Canada, The Brick is showing its appreciation by raising important awareness and funds to support our national programs and services geared towards mental health."
