Local Shopping Spree

Rules of Play

Please note the following changes to the Amended Rules of Play for the Local Shopping Spree Raffle.

The Inn of the Good Shepherd is amending the Rules of Play for the Local Shopping Spree Raffle due to the major sales disruptions caused by recent provincial lockdowns. The lockdowns have not only disrupted the day-to-day business of our partners but disrupted the day-to-day routines of the public at large. The Inn has not been able to have in-person sales occur, over the last few weeks, which has impacted not only the ability to sell but for the partnering businesses' abilities to advertise.

With these considerations in mind, a new draw date for the Local Shopping Spree Raffle has been set. The draw now commences at 12 p.m. (noon) on Tuesday, August 31, 2021, at The Inn of the Good Shepherd or within ten days of selling the final ticket. Whichever date comes first.

Tickets will now be available for purchase until midnight, August 28, 2021. A complete list of winners will be posted online by Wednesday, September 1, 2021, at theinnsarnia.ca, at localshoppingspree.com, on social media channels and displayed on location at 115 John St., Sarnia, ON, N7T 2Z1.

This is a one-time extension. Refunds are available to individuals for tickets purchased prior to May 14, 2021, and who do not agree to the Amended Rules of Play. To begin processing your refund, contact Kurtis Lush at kurtis@theinnsarnia.ca or (519) 344-1746, extension 314.

The Inn will be communicating with draw participants of the amendments to the Rules of Play through email (for purchasers who have provided their email contact information) or by phone (for purchasers who did not provide their email information but instead their phone number). Online purchases of tickets, which make up a majority of sales, have provided their personal email addresses for contact. In addition, The Inn will announce the amendments for the raffle and the process/ability for ticket holders to receive a refund, through the means of social media networking and a media release.

Additional businesses have been added as in-person locations to purchase tickets. They have been noted with an asterisk (*) under Tickets & Guidelines.
