Glebe Spree is back! Win a $10,000 shopping spree

November 17, 2015 | by glebeadmin

Everyone’s favourite contest in the Glebe is back for a fifth year – Glebe Spree, where one lucky shopper will win a whopping $10,000 shopping spree.

The contest launched Nov. 16 and runs through to Dec. 31, perfect for all your holiday shopping. All you need to do is get your passport and start shopping. Here’s how it works

For every $20 you spend in the Glebe, you get one stamp on your Glebe Spree passport. Load your passport with $200 worth of stamps and you get one entry to the grand-prize $10,000 shopping spree. Enter as many times as you like to increase your chances of winning.

Thanks to Kunstadt Sports, there is an early bird prize up for grabs this year for shoppers who complete a ballot and submit it by Nov. 30. The prize is an adult ski package with skis, boots, bindings and poles.

Mid-week shoppers will get an added bonus in the contest this year, as those who venture out on Tuesdays to do their holiday shopping will receive two stamps for every $20 they spend for our Two-Stamp Tuesday initiative.

New this year is an Any Day Prize where on any given prize day, a Glebe store will be assigned as the secret store and an unsuspecting shopper will win an instant $100 gift certificate. There is no way of knowing what store is the mystery store, so you’ll just have to keep shopping.

The Glebe Spree is an exciting and highly popular contest funded by Glebe merchants and the Glebe BIA as a way to give back to the community for supporting local business.

“We are extremely excited to launch yet another edition of the Glebe Spree. It’s a contest that is loved by both Glebe merchants and shoppers,” said Glebe BIA Executive Director Andrew Peck.

“The Glebe Spree gives holiday shoppers an added incentive to do their holiday shopping in Ottawa’s most dynamic shopping districts, the Glebe. The seasonal contest also gives merchants a holiday boost and helps to promote our buy local campaign in the Glebe.”

A big thanks goes out to our title sponsors this year Scotiabank and McKeen Metro as well as Kunstadt Sports.

Check out all the contest rules here on our Glebe Spree page and you can also download your passport and get collecting. Don’t forget to tweet, Facebook and Instagram your Glebe shopping experience using the hashtag #GlebeSpree.

Good luck to everyone!
