Shop Hop Rules and Regulations


Shop Hop Rules and Regulations

Again this year, the Alexandria & District Chamber of Commerce in collaboration with GIAG (Glengarry Inter-Agency Group) renewed the concept to promote awareness of local businesses in the Alexandria area.  The promotion called Shop Hop is derived from a Monopoly game (used in a popular fast food restaurant), and the ever-popular game of Bingo.  The concept is simple:  All registered and participating businesses help each other in promoting the local retail economy.

How it works:  Each business is offering a prize of at least $200 in value.  Businesses display their prize (or a certificate of said prize) in another participating business. Participants go to a business to get a specialized ballot to be able to win the displayed prize.  They answer a skill testing question on the ballot (eg. How many guitar picks are in this jar?) and then return the ballot to the business where the prize is from.  At this business there is another prize from another business and there the same process is followed, directing the participant to yet another business to drop off their ballot. The participant or customer is therefore ‘shop hopping’ to get the chance to win various prizes.

As an added incentive, participants can win $1000 in Chamber Dollars from the A&DCoC, seasons tickets to the 2014-2015 Jr. B Glens home games and 4 tickets to this year’s presentation of ESC Le Relais ‘Café Chantant’.  All the customers have to do is get their entire game card stamped with customized stamps at each of the 26 participating merchants.  (Where the full bingo card idea comes in) All together, there is over $11,000 in prize value to be won!
