THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO – October 9, 2011 -- Take A Hike, Thunder Bay’s outdoor lifestyle store, has just launched a new children’s sock campaign called “Share A Pair”. For every adult pair of GKS socks they sell during the month of October, they’ll donate a pair to children in need in the community.
Diane Petryna, owner of Take A Hike, said that for many years they’ve run a Christmas sock campaign called “Sock for Shelter House” but this year decided to make children the focus of the campaign. They’re also running it in October because of Thanksgiving.
“For those of us who can, being able to share a pair of socks with children in need, reminds us how much we have to be thankful for,” she added.
Share A Pair socks are grey, with red heels and toes, and are made from a blend of acrylic, wool and polyester. Adult socks retail for $9.95 a pair.
For the past 15 years Take A Hike has offered Thunder Bay shoppers a unique collection of quality gifts, toys, clothing, footwear and gear for those who enjoy a casual and outdoor lifestyle. Last November they relocated their store from Victoria Avenue to Bay Street across from the Hoito restaurant.
