As most people are aware, competitive pricing from online stores has made it quite difficult for some small businesses to stay afloat in these tough economic times.

With people opting to purchase goods online at a cheaper cost, they are ignoring the brick-and-mortar stores, which make up our cities and regional shopping centres, resulting in many businesses closing down and empty shopfronts lining the streets.



Luckily, the businesses in Central Geelong have discovered a way to tackle this problem and bring some trade back into the city centre.

Through the month of May, there will be a competition running in Central Geelong, with hundreds of local stores participating, and plenty of prizes up for grabs.

All you have to do is spend at least $20 in one of the participating stores (they will be displaying the red 'May Magic in Central Geelong' signage), and fill out an entry form (which you can collect in the store you are purchasing from, or from inside the local newspaper, The Geelong Advertiser).



Take the entry form and your receipt to one of the May Magic redemption booths, and you will receive a free 100g block of Cadbury Dairy Milk Chocolate, and a copy of the Geelong Advertiser (while stocks last).

You will also be put into the draw to win from a fantastic pool of prizes, including a Holden Barina Spark (1st prize), a year's supply of Cadbury chocolate (2nd prize) and great weekly prizes including vouchers for Market Square Shopping Centre, Village Cinemas Geelong, Westfield Geelong and a subscription to the Geelong Advertiser.

May Magic redemption booths are located at Village Cinemas Geelong, Monday to Friday (from 10am to 3pm), and in the Market Square and Westfield Geelong shopping complexes on Saturdays and Sundays (also from 10am to 3pm).

This is a great initiative, where you get freebies simply for shopping in Geelong.

So what are you waiting for? Get shopping and get rewarded in Central Geelong. Who knows? After spending only $20, you might find yourself winning a brand new car!
