Spring Blizzard Alert in P.E.I.


CHARLOTTETOWN — The length of the winters in Prince Edward Island is usually a sore point for the year-round citizens who brave sub-zero temps and heaps of snow for far too long for their liking, but last week they welcomed a Blizzard with open arms.

According to a CBC.ca story, a week-long sale on Dairy Queen Blizzards at the Charlottetown location was so popular it snarled up traffic on University Avenue.

The event — which featured a buy one, get one for 25 cents promotion — celebrated the 25th anniversary of the Blizzard, attracting an estimated 12,000 customers.

The store reportedly has the highest annual sales for Dairy Queen in all of North America, and last week it outsold every other Maritime location.
