Two Pairs of Tickets for Christmas with Scrooge

    Food & Entertainment    December 18, 2017

One Friday, December 15, Country Grocer gave away one pair of Christmas with Scrooge tickets to Kathy Weisner. And Country Grocer has two more pairs to give away. These are definitely the hottest, most coveted tickets on Salt Spring Island right now!

And you can win a pair! All you have to do is get some shopping down at Country Grocer on Tuesday, December 19, at around 1pm. There will be announcement made in store, and to win, you have to go to the announced location in the store for the “Contest in the Aisle on the Isle.”

Once at the announced location, you will receive a ticket stub for a 50/50 draw. Two of the ticket stubs will be drawn, and two people will win a pair of tickets for the Christmas with Scrooge performance on Thursday night at ArtSpring. Your chances of winning are fairly good! The draw will be shown live on Country Grocer SSI’s Facebook page.

Keeping the festive spirit of Scrooge alive, Country Grocer is posting a series video clips of a visit by the cast of Scrooge to the store on the Country Grocer SSI Facebook page and here on the Salt Spring Exchange, all week long.

And that is just the beginning of many more “Christmasy” events at Country Grocer!

Santa is coming to the store for photos with you and your family:

  • 3:30 pm – 6 pm Wednesday December 20
  • 3:30 pm – 6 pm Thursday December 21
  • 3:30 pm – 6 pm Friday December 22
  • 4:30 pm – 6 pm Saturday December 23

Photos are $5, and all the proceeds will go to the Salt Spring Food Bank.

On Wednesday, December 20th, sometime around 4 pm, a musical surprise is in the works! You also have to be in the store to enjoy that one.

You can find locally sourced Christmas trees, gingerbread house kits, festive red poinsettias, turkeys, and much more to complete your holiday wish list at Country Grocer. Bah ha —, no, wait — ho ho ho, Happy Holidays, everyone!
