New contest launches encouraging shopping along Eglinton Avenue.
Metrolinx is partnering with ShopLocal2Win to encourage people to shop along Eglinton Avenue.
From Nov. 7 until Dec. 18, 2022, Eglinton Avenue shoppers and businesses will have a chance to win cash with every purchase of $15 or more.
How does it work?
For six weeks, there will be weekly draws for $1,000. To participate, upload your shopping receipts to the contest website from any business within and between Mount Dennis and Mount Pleasant Village.
The winner will receive $500, with the remaining $500 being shared with the business that issued the winning receipt.
That means multiple chances to win $500, plus a grand prize draw of $1,500 for anyone who has entered three out of the six weeks.
Participants can also enter through the “No Purchase Necessary” alternative by leaving an online review of any participating business and taking a photo or screenshot of the review and submitting it online.
For more information or to enter the contest, visit the ShopEglinton2Win website here.
