Holiday Shopping Passports are here!

Posted Nov 13, 2017

The Holiday Shopping Passports are back with a new look, bigger prizes and more chances to win!

The redesigned passports once again feature three early bird prizes of $500 in downtown money to be drawn Dec. 6, 13 and 20. New this year is a larger grand prize of $1,500 in downtown money which will be drawn Jan. 10 when we will also be drawing runners-up prizes of gift cards from various downtown businesses.

Also new this year is a free stamp if you drop by the Peterborough & the Kawarthas Tourism office at 270 George Street North (limit one stamp per person).

The Holiday Shopping Passports program rewards people for supporting local businesses by shopping, dining and enjoying downtown. Last year’s program saw shoppers stamp $1.5 million worth of Holiday Shopping Passports.

Here's how it works: every time you spend $10 at a participating business, a box on your passport will be stamped. When your passport is filled (20 stamps), complete the form and drop it off at a ballot box at one of the participating businesses. Each completed passport is a ballot for a draw to win downtown money. There are more than 100 participating businesses downtown.

“The shopping passports have become a huge success for our downtown businesses and are something many people look forward to every November,” says Terry Guiel, Executive Director of the Downtown Business Improvement Area. “Starting today, you can enjoy our amazing compliment of unique places to shop, eat and drink with a chance of winning up to $3,000!”

Bring your Holiday Shopping Passport downtown on Nov. 24 for Black Friday as more than 100 downtown businesses put on some of the biggest sales of the year.

Our annual promotion of two hours free street parking starts Black Friday and runs to the end of December thanks to the City of Peterborough Parking Division.
