The 2016 downtown Hazleton holiday promotion will begin on Wednesday, November 23rd and will continue for three weeks. Participating businesses will contribute $10 which collectively with other downtown merchants creates at least four $50 prizes consisting of five $10 “Downtown Bucks” certificates. Plus, as an added bonus, Chaskin Jewelers will contribute the grand prize, a $100 gift certificate which could be used at their store in honor of their 100th year in business. “Chaskin Jewelers has been a key downtown shop offering great service and beautiful jewelry pieces for generations”, said Bill Spear, downtown Hazleton committee chair. “We appreciate the generous donation of the grand prize gift for this year’s downtown holiday promotion. It will be sure to add extra holiday sparkle for the winner!”
Participating merchants of the promotion will have a drop off box in their place of business for shoppers to enter to win. All downtown merchants are welcome to join in the fun! There is no cost to register but we are excited about having folks in the Greater Hazleton area come to visit the wonderful stores and restaurants that the city has to offer. Winners will be chosen on December 14th at Chaskin Jewelers, by a random drawing from all entries collected. The prize “bucks” can only be spent at participating businesses. A list of those businesses will be published in a Standard Speaker promotional ad each Wednesday during the promotion.
Businesses wishing to participate in the promotion are asked to contact Linda Mantush at the Chamber office at (570) 455-1509 or via email at .
