The Find it in Forbes Christmas promotion started on 31st October and ends on 22nd December. Everybody can be involved, simply by purchasing goods from any of the participating stores. Spending between $10 and $50 affords the purchaser one ticket; up to $99 secures two tickets and up to $149 three tickets. The more you spend, the more chances you have to win. The stores involved are named on the posters displayed around town. One of the main changes this year is that you don’t have to be present if your name is drawn as one of the winners. The Christmas Festival draw at the carnival will be to the value of $1,000, while the major prizes will be drawn on 22nd December at 6pm in the CBD.
The prizes are: gold prize $7,500; silver prize $5,000 and bronze prize $2,500. The prizes are all given in Why Leave Town Cards. With the recent floods, this is the perfect opportunity to show your support for Forbes. The Chamber is using the slogan: Shop Local, It’s the Perfect Place to Start.
So start your Christmas shopping early, support local business and be in the running for some fabulous prizes.
