The BAY is Canada’s oldest store and as such is stepping up to do something historical for Canada’s 150th birthday! It’s called the GRAND PORTAGE! Using the Hudson Bay’s Iconic striped canoe, the Grand Portage team will begin paddling west from Victoria to Nova Scotia.
Much like the earliest adventurers, the team will paddle and portage to connect the 2300kms of the Trans Canada Trail. The adventure begins in June and wrap up as it should, with a special celebration in our country’s Capital , come late August. The Grand Portage Team will stay in touch along the way using social media at #HBGrandPortage.
In addition, The Bay Stores are selling one of a kind items. The Grand Portage collection, a series of souvenir items for men, women and children. The 58-piece collection includes t-shirts, sweatshirts, hats, beach towels, journals, iPhone cases, confectionary and mugs, to name a few. A portion of all sales will be directed in support of completion of Great Trail, the longest recreational trail in the world , connecting Canadians from coast-to-coast-to-coast, leaving a great Canadian legacy to be enjoyed for generations to come.
