Help keep the high street ‘elfy’ by joining JEP quest
THE Jersey Evening Post today launches a fun festive campaign to encourage Islanders – and especially families with younger children – to support the high street by shopping locally in the run-up to Christmas.
Sixty local businesses have signed up to the JEP’s Elf Quest and will be hiding elves around their stores for customers to find.
Participating shops will have ‘Can you find the elf inside’ posters in their windows and elf hunters will be given an ‘I’ve found the elf’ token once they have found the elf in each store.
Questers can then simply write their contact details on the back of the token to be entered into a draw to win cash prizes.
There is also a Super Draw with a prize of a £500 Entertainer toy-shop voucher for those who collect coupons from 20 different stores.
Full details of how the campaign works, including how to enter the prize draw and details of all businesses taking part, can be found in today’s Elf Quest supplement inside The Weekend Jepson special edition of the JEP. You can also view it online here
One of the businesses taking part in the Elf Quest is The Organic Shop, in Stopford Road. Owner Beata Jurczyk said: ‘We are delighted to be involved in a campaign which supports local shops and encourages people to see the breadth and depth of St Helier’s retail offering. I’ll be hiding my elf next to some “elfie” organic food.’
SandpiperCI – which manages several retail outlets across the Island – is also taking part in the Elf Quest.
A spokesman said: ‘The Island’s largest retailer SandpiperCI has also been inundated with elves.
‘They appear to have taken up residence in the following stores: King Street’s Marks and Spencer, Jack Wills, Costa Coffee and Card Factory. Liberty Wharf’s George clothing, Cornish Bakery and Costa Coffee.’
