Special Appearance by Nanny Robina at the Toronto Eaton Centre to Celebrate the Launch

TORONTO, June 1, 2012 /CNW/ - New and expectant Toronto moms will get the ultimate introduction to the latest design ideas, product innovations and safety tips from the New Baby Department in the Kids Room when Sears Canada hosts an exclusive evening for mommy bloggers and soon-to-be-moms at the Toronto Eaton Centre on June 1 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Today, Sears President and Chief Executive Officer, Calvin McDonald, will kick off the official launch at 7:15 p.m., followed by an exclusive appearance from Nanny Robina, parenting expert and media personality. Nanny Robina will present her Top Nursery Must-Haves, with tips on parenting.

"We're excited to launch the New Baby Department in the Kids Room at Sears in 55 stores across Canada. It is organized into five categories that are clearly signed: nursery, travel, activity, feeding and gifting," said Tracy Culleton, Vice-President of The Kids Room at Sears Canada. "The signing also provides all the features and benefits of the product assortment. Another new introduction is 'take-with' inventory; when customers are shopping for cribs, strollers or car seats, Sears now stocks these in store so that they can be taken home on the same day."

"Sears has made a commitment to provide Canadian parents with the best information and high-quality products for every stage of their baby's development. We have done the research for our customers and carefully selected the best products tailored to their unique needs." said Calvin McDonald, President and CEO of Sears Canada.  "Sears has been a prime destination in the past for new parents--a place that was guaranteed to have the high quality essentials they need and expert service to guide them along the way. We are getting back to those roots."

Sears specially "Baby Trained" associates, who have the knowledge and expertise to help parents find the best products for their babies, will be on hand to showcase the latest baby products, innovations and safety features for expecting parents.  Over 120 associates across Canada have been trained to ensure helpful and informed service to new Canadian parents in all locations.

Originally from the U.K., Nanny Robina has traveled the globe to help parents raise happy, healthy and secure children. Since her arrival to Canada in 1999, Nanny Robina has established herself as a top parenting expert, mastering the technique of putting babies to sleep - a strategy most moms constantly strive to achieve.
