The Vaisakhi celebrations held on Saturday, April 11 at the Real Canadian Superstore, 85 Steeles Ave W. caught dozens of shoppers by surprise. This was the first time in nine years that the store decided to celebrate Vaisakhi in a big way. The store went a step further and donated $1000 worth of food items to the Dixie Gurudwara. Items like oil, rice and sugar made up part of the donation.
At 2 pm, scores of shoppers found themselves treated to a great Bhangra dance performance and foot stomping music. All shoppers were seen taking in the performance as they nursed piping hot cups of tea and Mithai. Judging by the overwhelmingly positive response, it is likely the store will make this an annual event.
