Hot days of fun at CANEX/OK Tire event

By Patricia Leboeuf

Posted on Thursday, October 12, 2017


The 2017 Annual CANEX and OK Tire Customer Appreciation Day was a great success, attracting hundreds of military families from all over the region. It also happened to fall on the CANEX Birthday Sale so Sept 16 was the perfect day to come out and see what the new superstore offers. Staff members transformed the parking lot with bouncy castles, a barbecue and treats, live music, a car show, giveaways and face painting.
