Holiday Shopping Passports Grand Prize Winner

Congratulations to Karen Procyk of Peterborough on winning the Holiday Shopping Passport grand prize!

The winning Holiday Shopping Passport was drawn Jan. 8 at Dueling Grounds at 304 George St. N. Karen is a regular downtown shopper and picked up her prize of $1,500 in downtown money on Jan. 9 at one of her favourite places: Wild Rock Outfitters at 169 Charlotte Street.

“Congratulations to Karen on her big win and thanks to everyone who shopped downtown this holiday season and helped make the Holiday Shopping Passport program a big success,” says Terry Guiel, Executive Director of the Downtown Business Improvement Area.

The 2019 Holiday Shopping Passport Program saw an increase of 14% in completed passports and downtown shoppers stamped approximately $2.3 million in downtown purchases on their passports.

The Holiday Shopping Passports ran from Nov. 12 to Jan. 8. Shoppers are rewarded by receiving a stamp for every $10 they spend at a participating location. Each completed passport (20 stamps) is entered into a draw, including three early bird draws of $500 in downtown money.
