The arrival of snow finally has it looking and feeling a lot more like the holiday season and the City of Selkirk is jumping on the bandwagon with its 7 Days of Giveaways online event.
Seven lucky winners will share in $700 worth of giveaways, that you can use for gift shopping or to treat yourself!
The giveaways kick off on Monday, Dec. 7th! All you have to do is head to the City of Selkirk Facebook or Instagram page and look for the daily video posted at 8:30am. To enter, follow the City of Selkirk, like the video and reply to the daily question in the comments.
“This year with COVID-19, we weren’t able to provide the community with so many of the events that people look forward to each year, and with continued, tighter restrictions it’s hard for many people to get out shopping or even get into the holiday spirit. That’s why we’re hosting the 7 Days of Giveaways,” says the City’s Culture Coordinator, Ellie Longbottom.
Supporting local businesses
The city is gifting up to $100 worth of Biz Bucks and City of Selkirk merch from the online shop each day for seven days. Biz bucks are gift cards that can be spent at nearly 40 local businesses within Selkirk, St. Andrews, St. Clements and West St. Paul. The City’s online Shop.MySelkirk.ca features T-shirts, hoodies, mugs, fishing lures, hats and more. Profits from all online sales are donated to the Selkirk Parks and Heritage Endowment Funds and go directly back into the community to help deliver programs, services and amenities for citizens and visitors.
The holiday season is normally the busiest time of year for merchants, but the continuing COVID-19 provincial restrictions have made this year a challenge.
“We wanted to give the community something special to look forward to while supporting local businesses. Supporting local businesses has never been more important”, says Longbottom.
The city would like to remind everyone that this is an online event only. The contest is free and open to anyone with a Facebook or Instagram account.
Each day by 9am the previous day’s winner will be announced and contacted by DM.
