Yaletown Mother's Day Week Featuring Groupon

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 26, 2011) - The trendy Vancouver neighbourhood of Yaletown is making Mother's Day shopping a little easier this year by hosting a unique Mother's Day Week shopping event featuring a week of special Groupon offers.

Whether you do your shopping online or in-store, the Yaletown Business Improvement Association has put together great gift ideas for Mom this year. For the week leading up to Mother's Day on Sunday, May 8, Yaletown has partnered with the popular daily deal shopping website, Groupon, to offer a unique Yaletown deal – Monday, May 2 through Sunday, May 8. The participating merchants are being kept a secret, but expect to see top restaurants; health and beauty; fashion and gifts; and spa and relaxation offers throughout the week.

On the Official Yaletown Website you will find a list of gift ideas from Yaletown merchants including the Top 5 Mother's Day Gifts in Yaletown this year.

Yaletown is also giving away $5,000 in daily prizes and giveaways including a "Yaletown Experience Grand Prize Package" that includes a Mini Cooper for the weekend, a night at the Opus Hotel, an exclusive salon makeover, brunch and dinner at Yaletown's top restaurants and a fashion shopping spree. To enter, participate in the "Yaletown Mother's Day Social Media Contest."

The Mother's Day in Yaletown promotion was created by the Yaletown Business Improvement Association with help from 6S Marketing and Groupon. Says Chris Breikss, President of 6S Marketing, "This is the first time that Groupon has done a neighbourhood week promotion in Canada, and it was modeled after a similar successful promotion in Santa Monica, California last year. We thought that this unique event would be a great way for our community to celebrate Moms and show our appreciation."
