‘Tis the weeks before Christmas and our stores are a bustle…
Shelves are being stocked for our holiday hustle.⁠
The newest arrival to our seasonal mix – an advent box filled with treasures…All treats – no tricks.⁠
We’ve been working around the clock on this first Countdown to Christmas.

Only 100 per store…It’ll be quite something to witness.⁠

24 mini versions of our favourite things that money can’t buy…
Each day a surprise to keep spirits high.⁠
November 4 at 9am – they’ll go on sale. No dibs, no holds…Line-ups may entail.⁠

Our team made each one with so much love and care – 12,000 packages inside 500 boxes –
all wrapped up…with a few days to spare.⁠
We can’t wait to see the excitement around this first-ever gift.
Get to all locations early on November 4th…Sales will be swift.⁠

This cheeky message released by the Italian Centre Shop to announce the launch of their first ever Advent Calendar, along with mentions on CBC Radio, The Tomato, Culinaire Magazine, Daily Hive Calgary and Avenue Magazine threw Albertans into a frenzy that led to record breaking sales of the new offering. With line-ups at all locations starting well before doors opened at 9am – within minutes, the coveted box of treasures sold out.

Starting December 1st, follow along at Italian Centre Shop’s Instagram platforms to see the products include in each hand-wrapped treat.
