Loblaws pitchman Dave Nichol dead at 73


TORONTO – Long-time Loblaws pitchman Dave Nichol has died at the age of 73.

The native of Chatham, Ont., who died on Sunday, appeared in TV ads for the grocery chain’s President’s Choice and No Name brands in the 80’s and 90’s.

Nichols helped build President’s Choice into one of Canada’s top labels.

Many of the products Nichol is responsible for can still be found on the shelf, including the Decadent Chocolate Chip Cookie.

Nichol also introduced the Insider’s Report magazine in the early 1980’s, a flyer that told stories of the products his brands bring to consumers.
