Wonder Auto & Tire caters to the needs put upon vehicles driven in the Maritimes, from hills and valleys that burden breaks and shocks to unannounced deer and moose that force vehicles to screech to a halt. The expert staff keeps cars equipped for any and all eventualities with preventative care and uses Wynn’s professional products to ensure that transmission, rear differential, and power-steering fluids remain clean and clear, like a well-kempt salad-bar sneeze guard.
Fruitful Expressions enchants givers and receivers alike with its handmade, customized fruit and confection concoctions. Artfully assembled chocolate-covered strawberry bouquets and fruit baskets take centre stage on the tables of special occasions. The bakers’ talents shine most brightly in their chocolate cake pops, individual tokens of edible art available in dozens of styles that take the shape of animals, seasonal figures, or event-specific shapes such as brides and grooms (not included with this Groupon). Fruitful Expressions also concocts treats for holidays and special occasions, celebrating everything from Thanksgiving and birthdays to St. Patrick’s Day and Casual Banana Hat Tuesdays.

Boasting the largest selection of Blu-rays and DVDs in Atlantic Canada, Video Difference stocks a bevy of mystical keys that unlock the enchanted world of moving pictures.
