Shop to Win is back and bigger than ever before!

Shop to Win is back and bigger than ever before!

Gladstone’s favourite shopping competition is back, and with 29 businesses taking part in 2021 it is bigger than ever before!

From November 1 until December 15, Gladstone Region residents will have the chance to go into the draw to win $10,000 just by shopping at their favourite participating retailer.

Elevate Media CEO Ashleigh Kivitko said Shop To Win was great for shoppers and local businesses.

“Now, more so than ever, it is important that we support our local small businesses who have been hard hit over the past 18 months by the COVID-19 pandemic,” she said.

“When you support a small business, whether it be Port City Meats or Dirt Cheap, Gladstone Cinemas or Hansen’s Grocery Store,  you are supporting locals who live in and are invested in our region.

“The competition is a great incentive and reward for those residents who shop local, and we’re excited that we have even more participating retailers in 2021, representing a great cross section of our business community.”

Last year there were over 29,000 Shop To Win entries spread across the participating retailers, with local Yvonne Keenan taking home the $10,000 prize.

Her winning ticket was thanks to her purchasing a birthday present for a friend at Gladstone Central News & Gifts.

Mrs Kivitko said what separated Shop To Win from other shopping competitions was that there was no minimum spend for shoppers to enter.

“You could spend a couple of hundred dollars buying a new vacuum at Gladstone Betta Home Living, or $10 buying coffee and cake at The Junction Café, as long as you shop at a participating retailer during November 1 to December 15 you are eligible to enter,” she said.

“And as a bonus, if you win, you can choose to spend your winnings in one shop, say by putting the $10,000 towards a new car at Bill Robertson Toyota, or spread it across a number of participating retailers and enjoy everything from an extended getaway at 1770 Lagoons to some new ink from Artistic Ink Tattoo Studio.

“It’s completely up to you.”

Be sure to grab future editions of Gladstone News where we will profile each of this year’s participating retailers, and keep an eye out for Shop To Win signage as it pops up around town.
