Teddy bear twins now available at Yukon liquor stores

WHITEHORSE—The Yukon Liquor Corporation has launched the popular “Twin Bear” program for the holiday season.

The teddy bears are available for purchase in all Yukon liquor stores. When a customer buys one chocolate- or butterscotch-coloured bear, its twin is donated to a child in a hospital, in a shelter, or whose family is receiving a Christmas hamper.

“The annual teddy bear program is a great success,” Minister responsible for the Yukon Liquor Corporation Scott Kent said. "Since 1992, the teddy bears have been putting smiles on the faces of children and customers alike.”

Bears are on sale while quantities last. The Yukon Liquor Corporation operates liquor stores in Dawson City, Faro, Haines Junction, Mayo, Watson Lake and Whitehorse.
