Pack A Picnic!

Posted on: July 15, 2021

It’s picnic season!  Get your oversized blankets, your fave bevvys, family-friendly games and your nibbles ready!  Cloverdale is gearing up for fun in the sun, family time and great eats (always thinking about food!).  Picnics can be as elaborate or pared down as you like and one walk through Cloverdale and you’ll snag everything you need.

Setting the scene:  a grassy patch in your fave local park (or your back yard or a spot on the beach).  Your large colourful blanket spread out, cooler open with it’s fresh eats and cool drinks.  A ring toss set up nearby.  Your loved ones protected with sunscreen, lounging and laughing.

Start ticking items off your picnic list at Kitchen Stuff Plus where they have blankets, reusable food containers and cutlery.  Head over to LCBO for some low ABV adult beverages, carry on to Mr. Souvlaki to pick up a pre-ordered tray of souvlaki and potatoes.  Next up:  zip through Rexall for sunscreen.  Home Hardware has coolers and family-friendly games like a ring toss.  You’re almost done;  just a quick nip into Metro for seasonal fruit for a fruit salad, cheese you like, packaged mixed nuts and some flavoured sparkling water.  Low fuss, fresh, and ready-to-go!

And if the rain squashes your plans set it all up indoors because as much as a picnic is about the fresh air and sunshine it’s more about the company and taking time away from the everyday to share some summer delights.  Let Cloverdale be your destination for summer picnic fun.  Don’t forget to tag us @cloverdalemall in all your creative picnic pursuits.
