There are two salvations of my morning drive. One is a smoothie. The other is a radio spot promoting NorthStar Ford, which is owned by Marty Giles.
In a market fraught with lackluster radio spots, the NorthStar Ford commercials are smart, compelling, and original. Giles writes the ads himself, which proves that you don't need an MBA to be a marketing hero (you don't even need a degree-Giles is a self-described "University of Calgary drop-out").
Want a real man’s haircut? Hit up Tommy Gun’s and take advantage of their great services. Free drinks, snacks, and arcade games to boot, plus a wide selection of men’s grooming products. It’s a win-win. They also own Fat Franks. What a company!
The Tavern on Main
Great service, great location and basically any beer in the world at your disposal. If you haven’t been there yet, check it out. Also, it’s Fort McMurray in a nutshell. A place where blue collar meets white collar and everything in between.
