What would you do with £1000 to spend in Lichfield? You can treat yourself to that new outfit, buy a new computer, pamper yourself! The list is endless & thanks to the Lichfield traders this Christmas it is all possible.

Lichfield City centre traders are launching a Shopping Crawl to give local shoppers a chance to win over £1,000 cash and vouchers for local stores.

This Christmas shoppers and visitors to Lichfield City centre will be in with an exclusive chance to win £800 cash and £250 vouchers as part of a new Shopping Crawl, launched by local independent shops and the Lichfield Town Team.

Anna Riley from Cure, a boutique ladies’ clothing store in the city, commented: “More than 20 independent stores have joined together to give shoppers and visitors a fantastic chance to win more than £1,000 in cash and vouchers this festive season.

To be in with the chance to win, you first need to pick up a Shopping Crawl Passport that will either arrive through your letterbox shortly, or is available at all of the stores taking part in this fantastic festive offer.

Then all you need to do is visit each of the shops on the Shopping Crawl, including Cure, Mooch, The Kitchen Shop and many more, between Monday 12 November and Monday 24 December 2012, to get your passport stamped.

You don’t need to buy anything to collect your stamps, just visit the shops to see what they are offering this Christmas.” The Independent Shopping Crawl is part of a nationwide initiative, launched by Independent Retailer Month, which aims to boost footfall on high streets up and down the country.

Locally the campaign is supported by more than 20 local retailers, as well as the new Lichfield Town Team, Lichfield District Council, The Best of Lichfield, the Lichfield Gazette and Design Pit, who helped to put the passport together.

Louie Clegg from The Best of Lichfield commented: “We’re distributing over 17,000 passports to local homes in November. If you don’t get one through your letterbox, you can pick one up from any of the shops on the crawl, as well as from the Tourist Information Centre in the Lichfield Garrick. Once you’ve collected all your stamps, all you need to do is fill in your details on the back of the passport and hand it in to any of the participating retailers before closing time on 24 December 2012 to be in with a chance to win. Good luck and happy Christmas shopping!”

The prize will be drawn in January 2013, and will be a mixture of vouchers for city stores and money, that altogether will be up to the value of £1,050. The lucky winner will be notified by the contact details they include on their submitted passport.

Councillor Louise Flowith, Cabinet Member for Tourism at Lichfield District Council, commented: "The shopping crawl is a fun idea to encourage people around Lichfield City stores and we're really proud to be able to support and help promote it. At the recent traders’ event where local shopkeepers came up with ideas to invest the £50,000 High Street Innovation Funding, a shopping crawl came out as one of the top ideas. Traders will be meeting again soon to decide where to invest the funding, so if successful, I hope that this shopping crawl may be the first of many that tempt shoppers into our beautiful city!"
