Get Rid of Your Bad Holiday Gifts in a Sweet Way

The holidays are coming to an end, and we are all starting to think about New Year’s Eve and what 2018 means. But let’s be honest, chances are you got a few bad gifts over the holidays. So do you re-gift them next year in hopes no one notices? If you live in Toronto, there is a much better option for you that we are excited to share! 

“After two insanely successful years, Toronto’s iconic and favourite holiday pawn shop is closing its doors – for good. To end on a high note, and go out with a bang, Canadians have one last chance to pawn their unwanted holiday gifts for something way sweeter, Skittles candy!”

Located at 277 Queen Street, the #SkittlesPawn store will be open December 26-29, from 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. daily at 277 Queen Street West in downtown Toronto. Did we also mention that special guests will be on site over the next few days? Skittles is ready to give out double, triple, quadruple the Skittles in exchange for holiday gifts you don’t want. That sounds like a pretty sweet deal to me – especially since pawned items in good condition will be donated to United Way Toronto and York Region to help spread the holiday cheer. Hot items for the season such as new socks, PJs, gloves and personal care products will get pawners extra Skittles candy. 

Skittles is encouraging us all to give back while we get rid of those unwanted items this year. Click below to find out what your unwanted gifts are worth in skittles!
