This year, Canada Day falls on a Monday, which gives many people an automatic long weekend! To celebrate the 152nd birthday of Canada, you can expect fireworks, barbeques, outdoor water activities, and camping on one of the warmest days of the year (we hope!). If your convenience or grocery store needs to stock up for the festivities and satisfy your customers’ needs, here’s what you should include on your list.
A celebration like Canada Day isn’t complete without a firework display before the night is over. Fireworks light up the neighbourhood with beautiful colours and the sound can be heard from quite a distance away. Many cities will launch their own firework display for the local community and visitors, but if your customers want to enjoy their own fireworks with their loved ones, you should stock up on our varieties.
Another must-have for your convenience or grocery store this Canada Day includes the Canadian flag. Around the world, people recognize the maple leaf as iconic to Canadian culture, and hanging a flag is one way many choose to celebrate their Canadian citizenship. Other Canadian items we supply include hats, coffee mugs, key chains, umbrellas, and more. With Canadian symbols on these items, customers and their visiting relatives can hold onto souvenirs that remind them of Canadian culture.
When the weather is warm and the sun is bright, it’s almost second nature for Canadians to get outside and enjoy BBQ burgers, hot dogs, shish kebabs, fish, and grilled veggies! To ensure they have what they need, why not set up a BBQ section with our charcoal, lighters, lighter fluid, brushes, and BBQ forks and utensils. These also come in handy during camping season—they’ll go flying off the shelves.
Need drinks? As a convenience store supplier in Toronto, we offer a variety of thirst-quenchers including pop, sparkling water, fruit juice, flavoured drinks, and non-alcoholic beer! Don’t forget these and some ice for your thirsty customers.
After gathering all the essentials, it’s time to have some fun. Our wholesale store offers more than just food and supplies—we also pride ourselves on our huge entertainment and outdoor play products such as inflatable balls, slides for swimming pools, kites, and other fun toys and activities to keep kids entertained while enjoying the outdoors. For customers planning to camp out under the stars this long weekend, we’ve got inflatable mattresses, too!
Swatting mosquitos and flies away all day isn’t the way most people prefer to spend their time—they’d much rather be barbecuing or enjoying quality family time. To keep the pests away, we supply citronella candles and sticks. Be sure to supply these items to your customers!
