Shopping in Stratford, Ontario, during the holiday season just got that much better. The SHOP! STRATFORD Christmas Contest kicked off the holiday season on November 15, featuring a grand prize valued at more than $1,200 in gift items and certificates. 

Shop! Stratford Christmas Contest features 15 local businesses

There are 15 local businesses who have generously contributed to the holiday prize package. Everyone who visits the participating shops will have a chance to enter the draw. The more shops you visit, the more entries you can submit!

Travel in style with a classy textured grey carry-on. Keep warm with a soft and cozy scarf and glove set. Add a touch of Britain to your décor with a classy cushion. Snuggle under a Scottish tartan blanket, while enjoying Stratford Festival performances from the comfort of your own home. Savour flavours of quality oil and vinegar, or for a sweet treat nibble on local chocolate delights. Sit back and admire your stunning new framed work of art by Scott McKowen as you contemplate where to shop first with many gift certificates including: kitchen and home accessories, fragrant teas and spirits, fashion, and personal pampering.

Participating businesses include many of my favorites: Agora Gallery, The Artful Badger, Bradshaws & Kitchen Detail, The British Touch, Chocolate Barr’s Candies, Distinctly Tea, Junction 56 Distillery, MacLeods Scottish Shop, Olive Your Favourites, Resonance, Samsonite Retail Outlet, Small-Mart General Mercantile, Stratford Festival Shop, The Touchmark Shop, and Treasures. 

The prize package is on display at Stratford Tourism Alliance, 47 Downie Street where you can also enter the free draw. The draw closes December 31. No purchase required. For complete contest information go to
