MISSISSAUGA, ON, October 11th, 2018- The Bargain! Shop and Red Apple Stores' annual Food Drive was another outstanding success, collecting over $114,000 in non perishable donations required by the stores’ local food bank.

The stores partnered with a local charity of their choice to ensure that all food donated, directly supported the community which the store serves. “Through our Together We Care™ initiative, we do everything we can to give back to the communities we serve,” says Clinton Wolff, President and CEO. “We felt tremendous gratitude for the incredible number of donations we received from our Customers.”
