Pie Plate Used for Advertising

Has anyone ever seen a Pyrex pie plate used as a promotional piece??  Cochrane's Retail Store must have given the plates away back in the day, that surely doesn't  happen any more....  I have never seen anything like this, I found it in Sudbury, Ontario,  wonder where the store might have been.....

  4. I've only seen these types of custom pie plates in my Pyrex Unofficial Collector's Guide book, the one in the book is also from Canada (so maybe this was a Canadian thing?)
    It lists the approximate worth as $30.

  6. Thanks for all the comments - I am in Ontario, there is a Cochrane in this province, but I'm wondering where this Cochrane's Retail Store might be..... could be anywhere...... It's a different piece, for sure!

  7. I grew up in Sudbury, and there was a Cochrane's Hardware store right in the middle of downtown when I was a girl. Remember going there with my Dad.
