Excitement builds for Shop Nelson and Win


With Shop Nelson and Win now underway, local businesses say their customers are more than a little excited at the prospect of winning $5000 cash.

Launched on Monday last week, Shop Nelson and Win is a Nelson Weekly promotion, in conjunction with Uniquely Nelson, with fifty Nelson businesses taking part.

“It’s good to create some buzz around town and promote shopping in Nelson.

It would be nice if someone won $5000 after shopping with us, so come in, shop and win,” says Beggs Music Works owner, Tim Babbage.

The Halifax Café has also received great involvement in the promotion from its customers.

“I think the box is full already and we’ve probably been through two packs of entry forms, so it is very popular,” says barista Charleigh Marshall.

“People are just excited that they’ve got the chance to win $5000 for nothing, by simply purchasing a cup of coffee they can go in the draw.”

The competition will finish at the end of September, so to be in with a chance to win, all you have to do is buy something at one of the participating businesses, fill in a quick entry form and drop it in the box.
