Consumers spending $10 or more will go into the draw to win cash prizes of $1000, $200 and $100, with the prizes to be drawn on December 23, while a smaller prize of $100 will be handed out each Friday prior.

Various stores are also offering giveaways, including hampers at YourPharmacy, and a surfboard, bicycle and cookbooks at IGA Everyday George Town.

IGA Everyday George Town owner Chris Barraclough said it was important to support local businesses, as increased expenditure helped to create employment in the municipality.

“A lot of the services I use myself are local,” he said.
