113 different fabrics, 31 colour groupings, 5 sizes and 4 styles... Our Jackets for Jasper jackets have almost all arrived in Canada and they are beautiful! We have re-designed the sizing for the men’s this year, changed the look of all of the jackets, and this year we have jackets with hoods (don’t worry it’s not hoods wearing jackets…)!
We've set our dates for the first local open houses and our online store. This is your best chance to buy down jackets at more than 50% off of retail prices, help Nepali kids get an education and do your Christmas shopping early.
Drum roll please…. The dates for our first local open houses will be:
- Sunday, November 2nd, 10-6
- Online store opens at noon Monday, November 3
- Saturday, November 8th, 10-6
Once again, we feel very fortunate to be holding our local open houses in North Vancouver at Deep Cove Outdoors (352 Lynn Avenue, North Vancouver). Outside our open house hours, you will be able to see, try and buy jackets during Deep Cove’s regular store hours until all our jackets are gone.
Deep Cove Outdoors has been an amazing partner and their commitment to us reinforces why it is so important to support a local company. During our open houses they will be clearing a big space for J4J, but when you walk through their doors, you will realize you've stepped into one of the best places around for Nordic ski and snowshoe equipment. The brands they carry include Fischer and Madshus skis, Ibex and Icebreaker Merino. So, as you visit us at our open houses remember to bring along your winter and Christmas wish lists and please consider supporting Deep Cove Outdoors as well. They are great people and because of them we are able to provide you, our Jackets for Jasper supporters, a convenient place to try on and buy our jackets.
We are always looking for volunteers to assist us at our open houses. We promise to feed and water you and your assistance would be greatly appreciated. It’s a fun day interacting with interesting people and we can certainly use your help! So please contact us if you can join us for a few hours.
Our marketing budget is zero. Yup, zero. So it is up to you and us. So please forward these dates to friends, share them on Facebook, tell your co-workers, tattoo them on a visible body part (a free jacket for everyone with a tattoo!), paint them on your car, etc.
Thank you! We hope to see you at our local open houses.... and out-of-towners, stay tuned for news about J4J "On the Road" later this November!
With sincere thanks,
Lenard and Liz
