“It’s an incredible honour to partner with the Leon’s family and management team, who have been pioneers in bringing 0% interest financing to their customers to provide exceptional value and affordability.”

FlexitiCards have been accepted at The Brick stores since 2018. Since 2019, LFL customers and all Flexiti cardholders have been able to apply and shop at thebrick.com and leons.ca.
