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. 
HD b-roll including quotes from eBay Canada Country Manager Andrea Stairs on 
the future of holiday shopping and results from the eBay Holiday survey are 
available in the links and attachments below. Interviews with eBay Canada are 
also available upon request.
