After 20 years in business, Toronto advertising agency Gee, Jeffery & Partners is closing its doors. To mark the occasion, they're having a Closing Down Liquidation Fire Sale on Thursday, November 18 – with all proceeds going to Jake’s House for children with autism.
“For 20 years GJP has been making advertising history and now GJP is history.” Says Alan Gee, Chairman, GJP (and the star of the video). “It’s been a heck of a ride.”
To go out in pure ad-style, GJP has produced a campaign, their last, promoting their closing and the sale.
Items up for sale include:

And so much more!
