‘Shop to Win’ promotion underway

Staff report

SIDNEY — Sidney Alive is encouraging the community to shop local in 2017 by providing opportunities for shoppers to earn chances to win an estimated $900-plus in merchandise and gift certificates through “Shop to Win.”

Every quarter, shoppers can enter to win by spending money at any of the participating downtown Sidney businesses. Businesses participating in the Spring Quarter include The Alcove, Threads, Furniture Express, Wiford Jewelers, The Ivy Garland, The Window Guy, Ron & Nita’s, The Scrub Store and S’Ellen Photography (check SidneyAlive.org for the most up-to-date list of participating businesses).

Participating businesses have provided merchandise and gift certificates to place in the window of Sidney Alive’s office, located at 109 S. Ohio Ave. Other prizes have been donated by The Spot Restaurant, Creative Marketing Strategies, Mary Kay by Kimberly Doak, Raise the Roof for the Arts, Cincinnati Reds, The Beach Waterpark, as well as Sidney Alive Board of Trustees members.

Shoppers will get a ticket entry for every $10 they spend at a participating downtown business. There is no limit to how many times you can shop to enter. The more you spend downtown at participating businesses, the more chances you have to win the window full of prizes. All the shopper needs to do is put their name and phone number on their raffle ticket. Participating businesses will have a poster in their window indicating they are a participating as well as a box near their cash register for shoppers to drop in their tickets.

The first drawing for the winner will take place on Saturday, June 24, at noon on the Shelby County Courthouse during the Annual Kids Around the Square event. Shoppers are not required to be present to win.
