Moores Canadian Suit Drive

Comments 1 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Tomorrow morning you may notice something a little unusual outside the Vancouver City Centre Canada Line station. Scantily-clad businessmen will show how they’ve given “the suits of their backs” to promote the Moores Canadian Suit Drive this September.

What: Moores first annual Canadian Suit Drive
When: Launching September 1st and running until September 30th at Moore’s locations

Why: To support non-profit organizations such as the John Howard Society, Dress Your Best and The Cinderella Project. More than 600,000 working-age Canadian men are currently unemployed. Great looking, professional attire can be the shot of self-confidence someone entering or re-entering the workforce needs to make the best possible first impression and land a new job.

How: Stop by a Moores location between now and September 30th with your donation of any of the following items: suits, sport coats, dress pants, dress shirts, dress shoes, sportswear (linen shirts, sweaters, vests, casual pants), outerwear (jackets, long coats, raincoats), ties and other accessories.

As a “thank you” for participating in the campaign you will receive 25% off toward your next purchase at Moore’s. You can location your nearest Moores location online including the downtown Vancouver at 524 Granville.

    very cool concept – the store annoys me though.

    I went in looking for an inexpensive but decent suit – the salesman who helped me put me in a jacket that didn’t fit, and then proceeded to tell me how well it fit and how good it looked.
