If you’ve ever caught yourself (or a friend) treating the sidewalk like a runway, the “Wear Else New Face Contest” is for you. Simply email Wear Else your picture and a line or two on why you think you, or someone you know, should be the new face of Wear Else. Ten finalists will be invited for a professional styling and photo shoot, and the finalists’ best pictures will be posted on the Wear Else website, where shoppers and fans can vote for a winner.
.
What’s in it for you? The winner will not only receive a $2,500 shopping spree, photo shoot and VIP status at Wear Else, but she’ll also be featured in a Wear Else advertising campaign, on the website and on any television appearances.

Contest closes on December 15 at midnight. Send two digital images, including one full body shot, and a few sentences on why you (or your friend) should be the new face of Wear Else to newface@wearelse.com.

GAP – Sprize Card

Surprise!! The GAP has literally turned its retail world upside down with the launch of its “SPRIZE” card. Last week, on a regular Thursday morning, the downtown Vancouver community awoke to upside-down logos, signs, mannequins, and even cars (!!) surrounding the GAP on Robson Street. All this “shopping turned on its head” in preparation to prepare the public for the SPRIZE offering.

With an easy one-minute in-store sign up … the SPRIZE card offers customers an incentive to purchase now, instead of waiting for an item to go on sale. How? If something you buy from GAP goes on sale within 45 days of your purchase date, you are notified by email and automatically given an in-store credit (called “Sprize Bucks”) of the difference in pricing.
