WEST TOWN — Neighbors can earn up to $100 in gift cards as they shop locally throughout West Town this month.

From now through Dec. 24, shoppers can collect “Winterfest Gift Certificates” when they spend money at participating retailers.

The more you spend, the more you earn; for every $40 spent at a participating retailer, a shopper will earn $20 in Winterfest cash.

Shoppers are limited to one certificate per store and five certificates per person. Winterfest cash can be redeemed in the New Year.

This Saturday, shoppers will have access to various deals, special promotions, trunk sales and holiday-themed items from 12-6 p.m.

They can also catch a three-hour-long guided “Jolly Trolley” tour of participating stores.

Pickup is at Candice C. Photography, 1431 W. Chicago Ave. The $10 trolley ticket comes with a $20 in Winterfest cash.

Buy tickets for the Jolly Trolley online.

The West Town Chamber of Commerce is coordinating the event. Learn more on the West Town Chamber of Commerce website or on Facebook.
