Media Alert - eBay Canada Hosts Holiday Pop-up Shop
TORONTO, Nov. 15, 2012 /CNW/ - Holiday shopping isn't what it used to be. Consumers are skipping the busy malls and parking lots and turning to online shopping. In fact, a recent survey by eBay Canada shows that almost half of Canadians will turn to mobile and online shopping for part or all of their holiday gift-buying.
"Canadians are increasingly looking to their mobile devices to solve their holiday dilemmas," said eBay Canada Country Manager Andrea Stairs. "You can shop anytime, anywhere inspiration hits with the eBay Mobile app."
Bringing the mobile shopping experience to life, eBay Canada is opening a three-day, outdoor Holiday Market in downtown Toronto beginning November 15th. eBay's first Canadian pop-up shop will allow consumers - any time of the day or night - to browse a curated collection of this season's most inspired gift ideas and shop right from their phones or tablets. Consumers across the country can also shop this curated gift guide by going to eBay.ca/HolidayMarket.
