Bags for Bags! Back to School SALE!!

August 23, 2016


Give back to the community and save!

Feel like it's time for a new bag but your old one is still in great shape? We've got you covered. Bring in a backpack and we will give you 15% off any YNOT bag! Your old bag will go to the amazing people over at New Circles who provide much needed clothing, social programs, and skill building opportunities to individuals living on a low-income, many of whom are newcomers to Canada. 

The best school bags ever! 

Start your school year off with a new bag or get that pack you've wanted and we will give your old one to someone who needs it! 

To celebrate the start of the school year we are launching our newest everyday backpacks the Laneway and the Alley.


Made for kids not by kids

The Laneway is the larger of the two with a big internal compartment and a built in laptop slip.

The Alley is the smaller sibling. It features the same articulating padded shoulder straps, tablet or book slip, large front pocket and Aqua Guard zippers. Both packs are unlined to keep them light and compact.

Buy a Laneway or Alley from now until Labour Day the 7th of September and receive a free matching pencil case usually $25!

Please note that donation bags must be clean and have minimal to light use.  15% discount only applies to bags over $100 and is not to be combined with other offers.  In store only.
