EDMONTON – The Valleyview Shell Super Station washroom has been named the winner of the 2013 Canada’s Best Restroom Contest by Cintas.

“The cleanliness and energy-saving design demonstrates how the staff at Valleyview Shell Super Station goes above and beyond to appeal to their customers,” said Cintas’ Senior Marketing Manager Leslie Molin. “We are excited for the opportunity to present the award to such a deserving establishment and dedicated team.”

Canadians cast thousands of votes online through Nov. 30, and the Valleyview washroom on Highway 43 – with its eco-friendly design and “spotless reputation” – took top prize.

The Valleyview convenience store serves between 2,000 and 2,500 customers each day and employees check the washroom every 20-30 minutes depending on the number of people that come in.

“Customers appreciate that they can count on us for a clean place to stop and use the washroom,” said Store Manager Blake Sparks.

“People comment to our staff all the time about our elegant décor in the washroom and the importance we place on the maintenance of our facility.”

“We are proud to see that the Valleyview team goes the extra mile to keep its facility well maintained,” said Molin.
