Big things are happening in Burlington this spring and the long-awaited Grand Opening of Indigo Burlington Mall is kicking it off with a bang!
I don’t know anyone who loves a bookstore as much as I do. So much so that it’s the generally where we end up on date nights. Which is why when I saw that sign go up announcing that a new Indigo store would be built on to Burlington Mall I was thrilled. Equally thrilled when the great folks at Indigo granted us some behind the scenes access to show us (and you!) what the newest Indigo store is bringing to Burlington.
If you haven’t been into the new store yet (how is that possible!) I have one word to describe the feeling: Ahhhhh. It’s bright, light and airy and always makes me exhale deeply. My eye was first caught by the awesomely Canadian red canoe directly in front of me. It was filled with cushions, beach reads, and more Canadiana that you can image.
When I visited Indigo Burlington Mall this time, it wasn’t all business, I was also on a mom-mission. It’s June, so teacher gifts are at the top of my shopping list, plus I have a very special Nana, and a birthday girl to buy presents for. Indigo’s gift selection never disappoints. We scored a gorgeous scarf (on sale!) and a floral scented candle for Nana, and I’m in love with this book – perfect summer reading for any empowered gal!
Next stop: gifts for an upcoming birthday party. I love giving a great book or Indigo gift card, plus a little something else. This time around, we scored an adorable water floatie (on sale, again!) and a book my 10-year-old highly recommends for any animal lover.
Because my kids finally have a cousin (their greatest wish, fulfilled) we had to stop in and check out the baby section. This was where we picked up baby’s first stuffy, a Jellycat toy. Is there anything softer?
After that, it was on to see what we could see for our teachers. My youngest picked out a cute – and functional – zippered pencil case, which will hold an Indigo gift card, because everyone needs a new summer read, or 10, right?
Indigo Burlington Mall is so excited to share their store with you, that they’ve sponsored this blog post and a giveaway for one lucky Active Parents reader! Enter below for your chance to win a $100 Indigo gift card, and good luck!
