Monday was the start of the annual Durant Main Street Shopping Spree with 31 Main Street members participating. Total prize money to be given away this year is $2,000. The date for the drawing will be Tuesday, December 18 at 6 p.m. on the Market Square Stage. Prize money won shall be spent with any participating Durant Main Street merchants.
The Durant Main Street office has been busy getting the ticket bags ready to be dropped off at Durant Main Street merchants who are participating in the Holiday Shopping Spree. For every $10 a patron spends with a merchant, they will receive one ticket to be filled out completely and dropped into the bag. Of course, the more money that is spent with a participating merchant, the better your chances will be for your ticket to be drawn for a prize. On Thursdays from 4-7 p.m., will be double ticket hours. A special drawing for a prize, which has been donated by downtown merchants, will be held after special Thursday nights.
