Shoppers and those looking to secure festive bargains are in for a treat this weekend as Shop Arran begins today (Friday) with a host of discounts deals and surprises at participating stores.
The 25 stores taking part, which range from jewellery makers to home hardware and clothing, and everything in between, including foodstuff, gifts and artwork, are all offering various promotions ranging from free gifts to generous discounts.
In addition to the bargains on offer, three winners who have their Shop Arran cards stamped by six of the stores taking part can enter a competition to win three Arran cards preloaded with credit, which can be used in the vast majority of shops on Arran.
In previous years luxury hampers were up for grabs, however this year three winners can use the cards for spending on whatever they choose, be it in restaurants, shops or even accommodation on the island.
Shop Arran runs until close of business on Sunday. Check last week’s Banner for full details of participating outlets, which will also have posters and signs to show they are taking part.
