Finley’s biggest town promotion — the 2012 Christmas Shopping Bonanza — began on Monday. And with a prize pool of $3500 now is a great time head to the local shops.November 28, 2012 4:21am

Designed to promote local businesses and help boost the local economy, it also rewards people who support local businesses in the lead up to Christmas.
A total prize pool of $3500 in shopping vouchers is up for grabs from participating businesses, with a draw each Saturday in December right up until Christmas.
All you need to do is spend $20 or more at a participating business to receive an entry ticket in the draw. All entries will remain in the running for the major prize draw.
Weekly draws will be made throughout the promotion, with the grand prize draw taking place at Finley Christmas Market Day on Saturday, December 22.
There are three weekly vouchers worth $250 to be won. However, prizes will be doubled if the winner is present at Murray Hut Clothing within 30 minutes of 11am, and can present a shopping receipt for $20 or more purchased from a participating store that same morning.
The weekly prize draws will be held at 11am at Murray Hut Clothing on December 1, 8 and 15.
The idea behind shoppers needing to shop on the day of the draw to double their prize is to encourage people to get out and about on a Saturday morning and enjoy all Finley has to offer.
The grand prize draw will see two $500 vouchers given away to local shoppers.
These prizes will also be doubled to $1000 if the winner presents at Murray Hut Clothing within 30 minutes of 11am, and can present a shopping receipt for $20 or more purchased from a participating store that same morning.
The Finley Christmas Shopping Bonanza is a Finley Chamber of Commerce promotion supported by the Southern Riverina News.
Shoppers can enter their tickets at any of the participating businesses. Full terms and conditions of entry will be attached to entry boxes.
