Toronto bookstore sponsors contest for new name

A contest to name the new bookstore and gift shop at the Latvian Canadian Cultural Centre could net the winner a CAD 100 bookstore credit, a spokesperson for the center has announced.

Because the new store also will allow for Internet orders, contest organizers say the ideal name should be suitable to promote both personal and online shopping, should attract clients from outside the Toronto community and should have a distinctive Latvian character.

Entry forms must be received before Monday, Feb. 11. They may be mailed, e-mailed, faxed or dropped off in person. An entry form in Microsoft Word format is available for download in either English or Latvian versions.

The winning entry will be announced during the Feb. 17 “Azaids,” which is scheduled from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Latvian Canadian Cultural Centre, 4 Credit Union Drive, Toronto.

Andris Straumanis is a special correspondent for and a co-founder of Latvians Online. From 2000–2012 he was editor of the website.
