SAN DIEGO, California -- The Hillcrest Business Association (HBA) is encouraging everyone to support locally owned businesses and Shop Hillcrest this holiday season.
To sweeten the pot, the HBA is offering every shopper the chance to win a $1,500 shopping spree, courtesy of dozens of Hillcrest businesses.
Check off everyone on your holiday shopping list and stop in for a bite to eat, all while giving back to your neighborhood and giving your neighborhood the opportunity to give back to you.
All you have to do is Shop Hillcrest — each visit to a participating retail or dining location will reward your purchase through Dec. 24 with a raffle ticket. Go to five locations, make a purchase a four of them, receive four raffle tickets; go back the next day for more purchases and get more raffle tickets; each raffle ticket is a separate chance at winning.
After Dec. 24, all raffle tickets will be tossed into a hat and placed in the running for a basket filled with $1,500 worth of gift cards and services. The winner will be announced Monday, Jan. 5, through social media.
There is something for everyone on your list in Fabulous Hillcrest. To date, participating businesses include Pure Barre, The Smoothbar, Empire House, Adam & Eve, Village Hat Shop, Green Fresh Floral’s, Americana Clothing, Cody’s Home + Gift, Obelisk Mercantile, Establish, Crest Café, Gioia’s Room, Urban Optiks Optometry, Uptown Tavern, Detour Salon, Babette Schwartz, Luigi Vera, Urban Mo’s, Baja Betty’s, Gossip Grill, Hillcrest Brewing Company, Local Habit, Purity Apothecary, 100 Wines Kitchen, Artist and Craftsman Supply, The Wine Lover, Pretty Please, Mankind, Blue Stocking Books and Beauty By Dolly.
