Despite many local retailers suffering from the domination of the likes of the Habaneras and the Zenia Boulevard shopping centres in recent years, there has been a new revival of local stores in Torrevieja, and now, a major bank is getting behind small businesses with a campaign to promote their use.
“We believe in Torrevieja”, is the reassuring slogan of the campaign promoted by the Sabadell bank chain, an institution that took over the local favourite CAM bank, and others, following the financial crisis.
Now, through this campaign, they are offering prizes to shoppers just for using the local stores in the town.
For the whole of June, if you shop in any of the participating stores, you get the chance to enter a prize draw where you can win 3,000 euro to spend in the local shops. This campaign benefits everyone, the local businesses who get the chance to promote their local goods, and the shoppers who could win big, which in turn then helps the businesses again.
The shops participating in the event will display a sticker near the door, so keep a sharp eye out for them. Once you make your purchase or purchases you need to keep the receipt, as that is what entitles you to enter. You then have until the end of September to submit as many receipts gathered during June for the chance to win big.
It´s also a competition where no one leaves empty handed, as you get a specially commissioned shopping bag, featuring iconic imagery of Torrevieja, just for taking part, so long as you´re one of the first 1,000 to enter.
