Welcome to the Fifth Annual Holiday Gift Card Auction!

Monday, November 23 at noon to Sunday, November 29 at 9 p.m

Sootoday+ members receive early access to Buy Now deals on Mon, Nov 23. The auction opens to the public on Tues, Nov 24 at noon. 

Please READ THE RULES, particularly the part about credit card authorizations. In short, each time you place a bid, the system places a hold authorization for that amount on your card. When you are outbid, the hold is released. If you bid $50 on ten different items, this means $500 of your available balance will be unavailable until you're outbid. Any winning bids at the end of the auction are captured - meaning your card is charged. Buy Now items will be charged to your credit card at the time of purchase. We recommend you use a credit card, not a debit card for this auction. A released hold may take several days to reflect on your statement.

What happens if I win?
After the auction closes, it may take us a few days to process the results. If you have won an item, you will receive a confirmation email, which will contain pick up instructions. For any auction related questions, please email auctions@sootoday.com

About Pino's Get Fresh

Reader favourite

Pino's Get Fresh is recognized as a Community Leader through their investment in expanding local news coverage. Thanks to their participation in the Community Leaders Program we are able to enhance areas of content in Sault Ste. Marie that were underserved in the past. Pino's Get Fresh proudly supports Inspire features and stories about local youth taking action to make a difference in our community


Founded in 1981, Pino's Get Fresh has grown to be one of Sault Ste. Marie's most recognizable local independent businesses & fresh grocery store. We have a passion for supplying the community with the freshest and highest quality foods while providing top-notch customer service and highly enjoyable shopping experience. Our full-service (44,000 sq. ft.) grocery store aims to fulfill all of your grocery shopping needs and more! 

It all began in the early 1980's, when store owner Ben Pino ambitiously took over the I.G.A. franchise on Trunk Rd. With a background as a butcher and Meat Supervisor for Dominion, Mr. Pino built a reputation around providing the absolute best quality meat - which is still evident to this day, as the backbone of our business. The introduction of Pino's Homemade Italian Sausage created a brand for the grocer, with a product that has become recognized throughout North America and even worldwide! Spreading the same high-quality standards and competitive pricing throughout the rest of the store, Pino's grew into a full-scale shopping experience, eventually breaking free from franchisee restrictions to become the now independently owned "Pino's Get Fresh".  

As customer demand grew and the competitive landscape increased, the small Pino's building on Trunk Rd. had reached its capacity. A bold decision was made to build and expand into the larger location where we are today. This allowed us to provide more services and increased variety to better serve the good people of our community and beyond. As a family business, we look forward to continuing this tradition for years to come!
