There are no more bears residing at the B.C. Liquor Store.
Store officials say that the store had sold out of the charitable teddy bears, Thursday, one day ahead of schedule. For each bear sold, another is being donated to a local charity.
This is the eighth straight year the store has reached their quota and sold out of the bears. By reaching their target, the Fort St. John location earns the honour of being the top bear seller in the province.
A total of 2,400 bears were sold by the store as part of its “Share a Bear” campaign. This impressive number has been achieved for the past three years in a row.
Some of the local charities set to benefit from this promotion include the Child Development Centre, the Salvation Army, the Fort St. John Hospital Foundation, the RCMP Victim Services program and the North Peace Pregnancy Care Centre.
