The final Shopping Passport draw took place on Friday, 24 November.
“Thanks again for the amazing support from the businesses that sponsored this week’s draw and congratulations to all the lucky winners,” Condobolin Chamber of Commerce President Vicki Hanlon said. “Please take the time to to ask for the stamps if they are not offered as many retailers are busy and may forget to offer them to you. “Also make sure you put your completed passports in the boxes at Condobolin Newsagency, Chamens IGA, Foodworks or Shortis and Timmins Pharmacy.”
The Major Draw will be held at 7pm on the evening of 1 December and the prize money will be distributed on WLT (Why Leave Town) cash cards for local shopping.
