Celebrating #LeonsCAE and Free Furniture Giveaways at Leon’s Roundhouse

Fall is one of my favourite times of the year! As the temperatures start to drop and we spend more time inside, we need to make sure that our furniture is ready for “nesting” season. The urge to make new purchases comes at just the right time because Leon’s is celebrating its annual Customer Appreciation Event!

On Thursday morning, I had a bright and early start to head over to the Leon’s Roundhouse in Toronto! When I arrived at 6:15 a.m., the line was ALREADY down the side of the building as guests anxiously awaited 7:00 a.m. for the doors to swing open. The hustle and bustle was contagious and the sales were out of this world! The best part was the first 100 guests who entered the store would receive $100.00 gift card for their next purchase at Leon’s!

Here are some fantastic items I spotted walking around the Leon’s Roundhouse location. Look at the colours, the textures and the general feel of the space – aren’t these pieces beautiful? The best part of the Leon’s Roundhouse store is they also featured mini “condo” areas to show how their furniture could fit into smaller spaces. This is a really great feature – as I’m sure you Torontonians (or many of your friends and family members) live in a space that’s under 1000sq feet!

The most exciting part of the day was watching Cityline Breakfast Television introduce new pieces LIVE – drawing for a great couch featured in their media lounge and explaining some design tips for your home. Jenn Valentyne and Shai DeLuca-Tomasi brought a lot of spunk to the early start – and certainly increased everyone’s enthusiasm about the great weekend to come!

Leon’s Customer Appreciation Event will continue throughout the weekend at all Leon’s locations throughout Canada and the store is giving away over $40,000 worth of prizes. This is your chance to win FREE furniture – yes, you heard that correctly – F-R-E-E FURNITURE! You can use their store locator to find the location nearest you. Below you can see a snapshot of all the prizes that you could win. After all, who doesn’t need a new accent chair or 5 pc dinette set to spice up the space?

Black Stainless Suite from KitchenAid

Black Stainless Suite from KitchenAid

Earlier this year KitchenAid launched its newest line of appliances: The Black Stainless Suite.


It’s the first-ever black stainless steel collection and it looks incredibly sleek. The stainless steel appliances are forged from anodized steel and feature chrome inlaid frames around the ovens. The handles have a satin cross-hatch which makes them easy to grip and easy to clean.


The oven has KitchenAid’s Even-Heat™ True Convection System. Which means the whole oven stays at the same temperature, evenly heating your food. No more turning your food around halfway through cooking, or struggling with dishes that are too hot on one end and cold on the other. And since convection cooking takes less time than a regular oven you can easily convert regular oven temperatures and cook times, with the press of a button.


cooktop-burner-details-kitchenaidThe cooktop now has a more precise flame to help you get the perfect temperature, and the Dual Ring Burner will let you go from boiling to simmering all on the same burner. And if you’re worried about making a mess on your new cooktop, the CookShield™ Finish protects the cooktop from spills and stains – the mess is easily wiped away with a cloth and will keep it looking like brand new.

And the attention to detail doesn’t stop there. The stove top dials feature brushed stainless steel, an easy-to-clean cross-hatch texture (so it seamlessly blends with the rest of the collection), and a bladed dial to help you select the most precise settings.


You can check out all the new features by visiting them online: or by visiting a retailer nearest you.

Shoppers Drug Mart is a big supporter of women’s health. And that’s why every year they hold an annual campaign to help raise money for local women’s health initiatives.

Since 2002, this campaign has raised over $26 million. And last year it supported over 480 charities, with proceeds going to initiatives that improve services at local hospitals, support mental health programs, and more.

You can visit your local Shoppers Drug Mart to find out what local charities you’ll be helping. And together we can help women feel beautiful, strong, and supported.
