Win prizes for shopping local

Grand Christmas is in full swing in downtown Ladysmith.

Grand Christmas is in full swing in downtown Ladysmith.

The Ladysmith Downtown Business Association (LDBA)’s Ladysmith Grand Christmas began as “Cash for Christmas” in 1997 and was sponsored by Ladysmith and District Credit Union (LDCU), the Chronicle and participating businesses. LDCU donated the $1,000 in cash prizes.

The program has morphed over the years, and this year, shoppers can enter to win cash prizes at 24 participating downtown businesses.

LDCU is once again donating the $1,000 in prize money, which can be spent at more than 40 of the LDBA’s full member businesses.

Shoppers can enter the Grand Christmas draw from now until Dec. 10. The winners will be drawn Dec. 12 at 11 a.m. at LDCU.

The grand prize winner will receive $500 to spend locally, while the second-place winner will receive $200, and three third-place winners will receive $100.

The Grand Christmas promotion encourages residents to visit their local businesses and shop local during the busy Christmas season. The purpose of the program is to get people into the doors of local businesses, to highlight Ladysmith as a shopping destination within the region, and to showcase the member businesses under the umbrella of the LDBA.
