Hal Gill at Avril

Its kinda nice / funny to see one of our installs on cable TV. The French-language TV show ‘Nos Canadiens’, hosted by Anne-Marie Withenshaw on V, gives Habs fans the opportunity to see what its really like to play for the most storied franchise in NHL history. Every week the camera follows a player on their daily schedule to give us a glimpse of their personal and professional life. On a recent airing featuring Montreal Canadiens defenceman Hal Gill, they take us to Avril Supermarché Santé in Montreal’s South Shore, one of our clients, and where the pro-hockey player purchases his supplements.

We installed digital signage throughout the health food supermarket including their fresh produce area, their cosmetics store and at their quick serve bistro, Avril Cafe. At around 3:45 into the following excerpt of the episode, we see Hal Gill and Anne-Marie purchase coffees at the Avril Cafe, which features our MenuView digital menu boards: http://vtele.ca/videos/nos-canadiens/nos-canadiens-hal-gill_25769.php.

Go Habs, Go!
