Sounds like a dream come true, right? Gladstone News is proud to announce an exciting prize draw Shop To Win, where every dollar you spend at our eighteen participating local businesses could win you ten grand.

Someone is going to grab a swag of cash for Christmas when this fabulous promotion is drawn live – by Santa Claus himself! – on the 20th of December at the Gladstone Entertainment Centre at the La-Lah Christmas show and live online on the Gladstone News Facebook page.

Think about what you could do with the money – it can be used for anything – to pay bills, go on a holiday or even deck your home out with some stylish new furniture.

As one of the businesses taking part, Jenelle Knight from Sassi said: “As a local company who has been operating in Gladstone since 1980, we are always keen to give back to the community wherever possible,”

“Supporting the community who support us: That’s what we do!”

All you need to do is buy something at one of the participating stores to go in the draw. Every purchase gets you an entry and there’s no limit to how many times you can enter!

Imagine how great it would be to go and see a show AND win ten grand?

Elevate Media and Gladstone News were the first to sign up to this incredible promotion. GN’s Advertising Manager, Stacy Berry says: “I couldn’t think of a better way to end 2017 than to give away $10,000 to someone local that supports our local businesses.”

“It is absolutely amazing to have so many wonderful locally owned and operated business band together for a very positive outcome.  That is one thing I am so proud of in our community, we all support each other,” she said.

The Gladstone Entertainment and Convention Centre are one of the Shop to Win crew, so a top night out with Damien Leith, Kasey Chambers or even the La-Lah Christmas Show: Santa’s Got a Brand-New Groove could net you a big cash prize.

Or drive away in a brand-new car from Bill Robertson Toyota and score a bonus ten grand to spend on rego, maintenance and fuel!

James Robertson, Dealer Principal at Bill Robertson Toyota said: “After trading in Gladstone for almost 45 years, our dealership knows first-hand how important it is to buy local and support the Gladstone community wherever we can.”

“We saw this special promotion as a unique opportunity to not only work together with other great locally owned businesses but to also thank our valued guests for supporting our own business.”

We can’t wait to see who the lucky winner of the $10,000 cash prize will be!”

Tom Kirchner from Betta Electrical is stoked to be part of the Shop to Win team: “Thanks for having us in this promo.  We’re excited to be a part of it and hoping that one of our customers is the lucky one to win the $10,000 just in time for Christmas.

“It’s a great way for the community to get behind local business and support local operators who support the community.”

So remember, in the lead-up to Christmas, while you’re out doing your seasonal shopping, support this great initiative from our team of local businesses and you could go home with ten thousand dollars!
