The leaves are falling, the weather is growing cold and it’s once again time to pull the sweaters and jackets out of the back of the closet.

All the signs all point to fall -- one of the busiest times of the year for any modern family as parents and kids alike brace for the pressures of another school year.

That doesn’t mean you haven’t got time for some fun, and an opportunity to stock up on back-to-school essentials while you’re at it.

That’s exactly what you’ll find at the TELUS Connected Experience Store at Fairview Pointe-Claire. The store offers a full array of top-of-the-line technology, and gives families the opportunity to test out their favourite devices in the store before committing to a purchase.

For store manager Mike Duvalsaint, there is absolutely nothing quite like it anywhere in the city.

“This is destination store. People come from all over,” he says. “It’s a place where kids and kids-at-heart can test learn about and experience the latest tech trends.”

Of course, getting expert advice on your options is also important. To that end, customers are each assigned a personal representative who will handle any inquiry from start to end, proactively following up with them and helping them make the best use possible of their connected devices.

“We will only offer solutions and connected devices that will actually serve a purpose to you, and make an impact on your everyday life,” says Duvalsaint.

Back-to-school can also mean extra expenses for clothing and school supplies, so Duvalsaint recommends that customers take advantage of the TELUS Family Advantage plan to save money. That means families can share a single data package large enough to fit all of the family’s needs.

“Instead of paying separately for all your data plans, our shared data plans allow families to pay less for one bigger data package,” he says.

Get ready to be the most connected family on the block with the latest devices on the fastest and largest network in the country. Plus, from now until the end of September, for every new line activated or renewed in the Greater Montreal Area, TELUS will donate $20 to alloprof, an organisation that provides free homework help to Quebec students. It also offers resources to enable parents to support their children’s academic success.
