CELEBRATE SANTA SLEIGH DAYS
This week you will find 24 local Susanville merchants participating in the annual Santa Sleigh Days shop local event. Just look for their ads in our special insert in this week’s paper for all the great bargains this week only. Plus you’ll find the official Match the Elves entry form in there, too.
We’re putting a little humor in this year’s promotion and we’ve morphed photos of employees at every sponsor. Just take your entry form to each business and locate in their business the photo and name of their employee. If you correctly match all the elves, you could win one of two $100 shopping sprees. Plus we’re giving away three $100 shopping sprees just for entering our free drawings this week too.
Several merchants will have their own prizes including a $100 store gift certificate from Billington Ace Hardware, and Leslie’s Jewelry will be giving away 10 fresh water pearl necklaces and a $250 store gift certificate.
So don’t drive out of town and wait in long lines, when you can get personal service and support your local economy too!
