Tsitsi (Itsy) Ettienne displays the gift certificates valued at $1,350 that she will redeem at Fort Macleod businesses that participated in the 2015 Chamber of Commerce Shopping Spree.

Shopping in Fort Macleod paid off for a local woman.
Tsitsi (Itsy) Ettienne is the winner of the 2015 Shopping Spree co-ordinated by the Fort Macleod and District Chamber of Commerce.
Chamber of Commerce past president Emily McTighe on Friday afternoon shared the good news that Ettienne’s name had been drawn.
“I never win anything,” Ettienne excitedly said when she arrived to pick up $1,350 worth of gift certificates.
The Chamber of Commerce organizes the Shopping Spree as part of its efforts to encourage people to shop locally during the Christmas season.
Fort Macleod businesses offer quality merchandise at low prices as well as a personal touch for people shopping for Christmas gifts.
Customers also don’t have to struggle to find parking and battle huge crowds and long line-ups like they do in the city.
People entered the draw at participating businesses.
Theresa Miller of The Macleod Gazette called to invite businesses to participate in the Shopping Spree, and the response was positive.
Participating businesses made a cash contribution to the program and will honour the gift certificates that Ettienne received.
The gift certificates can be redeemed at the participating businesses for regular-priced merchandise.
The gift certificates cannot be redeemed for cash.
