Aisle 24 is offering some shoppers the chance to participate in a 24-second shopping sprint at its soon-to-be-opened location in Toronto’s The Well, a massive mixed-use development in downtown Toronto.

According to the Aisle 24’s Facebook page, winners will be chosen from amongst new shoppers who registered for the first time on its mobile app before end of day on November 13. 

This Friday (Nov. 17), winners will be provided one basket/bag to fill with as many grocery and convenience product items as they can within a 24-second time limit. Contest winners will receive at no charge all qualifying items they select during the shopping sprint event within the time limit.
