VERA Council is offering a Mediterranean cruise for two as top prize in a competition aimed at boosting shopping in local businesses.
The initiative is part of a council campaign “to reactivate and boost activity in the locality’s local businesses, helping to cushion the blow of the drastic reduction in income brought about by the halt due to coronavirus,” explained councillor Ana Lourdes Ramirez.
Vera mayor Jose Carmelo Jorge Blanco urged residents to “prioritise Vera’s small and medium-sized businesses,” describing them as “an essential element of life in our town and a key piece in economic development and the generation of direct and indirect employment.”
The competition covers shopping in either Vera town or Vera Playa, not including large supermarkets. Shoppers have to spend a minimum of €40, which can be made up of various purchases in different outlets.
Receipts with the participant’s name, ID and phone number on the back have to be deposited in an urn next to Vera Tourist Office or in the business where they bought from if they have an urn for collecting the receipts before September 3. The draw for the winners will be the following day.
Other competition prizes include a weekend break for two with spa session in a hotel in Rodalquilar and a €100 voucher for shopping in Vera outlets.
