St Pat’s race meeting is fast approaching and shops around the Silver City are getting into the spirit with colourful and creative window displays.
This year, it’s especially worth going that extra mile because the first prize is a premium advertising package from the Barrier Truth valued at $5000.
“It’s one month of premium advertising – website banners, social media and newspaper ads, including strategy and creative direction,” Barrier Truth’s Advertising Manager Robin Sellick said.
“So, it’s a great opportunity for a local small business to get quality exposure as the City enters what will be it’s busiest business period for the last couple of years.”
Sarah Bishop, Store Manager at Sampsons, said she always enjoys the opportunity to be creative.
“We always go to a lot of trouble with our window displays, particularly for St Pats.,” she said.
“You don’t feel like it’s work when you do this – it’s a lot of fun.”
Store owner, Peter Nash, said every shop owner should put their best ideas into action to try to win this big prize.
“Particularly as we all come out of the rollercoaster of COVID, a big burst of advertising like this will be a great boost for some lucky local business owner,” he said.
Entry forms are available by contacting the St Pat’s office or the Barrier Truth. Second prize is a $2000 voucher with Southern Cross Austereo and Third prize is a $1000 advertising package with 2BH/Hill FM.
Winners will be announced on Thursday, March 17.
