November 23rd: “What would you do with a $10,000 Glebe-Spree?”

November 23, 2011 | by glebeadmin

That’s the question on everyone’s lips since the $10,000 Glebe-Spree contest began on November 15th. The contest launch coincided with the much anticipated re-opening of Bank Street and is just in time for the start of the holiday shopping season.

“I’d buy summer patio wear for myself and gym memberships for my friends,” says Amanda N. about how she’d spend her $10,000—a prize purse generously donated by the Glebe BIA, Scotiabank, Taggart Construction, and Ottawa Greenbelt. We think she’ll still have plenty left over!

So how can you win? Just get a Glebe-Spree Passport from any participating Glebe merchant—then start shopping! Every $20 you spend gets you a stamp in your passport. Once you’ve got 10 stamps, just tear out the page, fill in your contact information on the back, and return it to one of the stores listed in the passport. It’s that easy!

With so many great stores and services in the Glebe, the ways to spend your winnings are endless. A trip to Italy? Sure, Fight Centre or Travel Cuts can arrange that. How about that princess cut diamond ring you’ve always wanted? Davidson’s Jewellers or Magpie Jewellery will help you find your size. Fine dining? Home furnishings? Spa treatments? What about an entirely new wardrobe? Dream big. You’ve got $10,000!

So this Christmas, wrap up your shopping in Ottawa’s most dynamic and eclectic shopping district – the Glebe! The contest closes on December 31, so grab your passport and get shopping!
