Sylvan Lake News shopping spree winner selected

One lucky Red Deer County woman won big this week as her name was drawn out of hundreds of applicants to be selected as the recipient of a $2,016 shopping spree.

The “It Pays To Shop Local’ shopping was a collaboration between 18 local businesses and Sylvan Lake News.

Diane Tallack of Red Deer County had her name picked out of the hundreds of entries. Tallack, joined by her husband Doug were picked up from the Sylvan Lake News on Tuesday afternoon by the BukWildz courtesy limo service and were taken to their choice of businesses where they had 33.6 minutes in total to spend the $2,016.

Tallack’s first choice was to head to Shoppers Drug Mart where she picked up a few choice Christmas presents for her nine grandchildren.

Next up she was off to The Whole Show Dance & Active Wear. Here she purchased a number of stunning dance costumes for her grand daughter. Next Diane and Doug headed to Castle Wolf Creek Building Supplies and nabbed themselves a delightful new kitchen faucet.

The pair headed for Global Pet Foods next where they found themselves treating their furry friends. Their pooches got another treat after the Tallack went for a visit to Parkland Veterinary Hospital. It was here at Parkland Veterinary Hospital that Tallack entered her name into the shopping spree a number of times over the last month.

Their final stop of the day during the ‘It Pays To Shop Local’ shopping spree was at Natural Solutions Health Store where they picked up a number of supplements, with Diane adding it was a particularly nice end to the day.

“This has been such a great day,” said Tallack following the shopping spree. “I was able to get a number of incredible Christmas presents for my grandchildren as well as my puppies. Thank you to all of the businesses who made this possible and made this Christmas that much brighter and a special thank you to Sylvan Lake News also.”

Randy Holt, publisher of the Sylvan Lake News congratulated the Tallack’s on their big win adding the contest was a great success and a delightful kick off the holiday season for the couple.

“Thank you again to all of the businesses who participated it really does pay to shop local,” echoed Holt.
