Shoppers have been given the chance to win £4,000 of vouchers to spend in Northampton town centre in the annual Golden Ticket giveaway.
Eight lucky people will get an early Christmas present by in the form of £500 worth of vouchers in the campaign run by Northampton Town Centre Business Improvement District (BID).
Jessica D’Aulerio, chair of Northampton Town Centre BID and owner of town centre print business Tangerine Red, said: “We‘re delighted to be repeating the success of last year’s Golden Ticket prize draw, which will guarantee an extra special Christmas for eight lucky shoppers and their families and will also bring more shoppers into our town centre, a key objective for the BID.
“Crucially, the winning vouchers must be spent here in the town centre and half must be spent in independently owned businesses, ensuring we support all our shops, venues and businesses, not just the big names during this peak, festive period.”
John Sheinman, a director of Northampton town centre BID and owner of Sheinman Opticians, added: “Businesses are more involved than ever before with Golden Ticket and recognise that this festive initiative is a excellent way to entice more shoppers into the town centre.
“Like other businesses, I’m urging my customers and patients to complete and post a Golden Ticket and hopefully, if they are one of the lucky winners, they may choose to spend some of their vouchers with us.” Richard Clinton, BID director and operations director at Royal & Derngate, said: “We recognise that this is a great way to not only promote our business but to entice more people than ever before into our town centre. This is a festive bonus for business.”
