Shopping locally paid off for one holiday spender, she took home hundreds of dollars worth of prizes.
The winner for Shop Hillcrest for the Holidays took home a gift basket loaded with local goodies on Wednesday.
Kyra Tipsword (above right) spent locally for her holiday shopping at Cody’s Home and Gift on University Avenue.
This year the Hillcrest Business Association had over 35 businesses participate in the local shopping campaign which ran from November 25 to December 24.
Each participating store received raffle tickets and every time a customer shopped at their location, they handed them a ticket.
The more you shopped in Hillcrest, the more chances you had of winning.
Kyra was the lucky shopper this year and won everything from fitness to food in her basketful of prizes.
Hillcrest takes part in the Hillcrest for the Holidays raffle because customers love to shop locally and businesses take pride in their neighborhood.
