Shop Surry Hills for a daily chance to win
22 August, 2018

The popular Head to Surry Hills competition is back, giving entrants a daily opportunity to win $100 credit to spend at their favourite business in the Devonshire Street Precinct.

Launched by the Surry Hills Creative Precinct and Transport for NSW, the competition will run until September 23 with winners drawn weekly.

From cold beer to hot coffee, haircuts and picture frames, there are more than 50 participating services and retailers to choose from in the eclectic precinct.

Coordinator General Marg Prendergast said dozens of businesses had been eager to get back on board for the competition’s third round.

“This is a really exciting program for us and it gets bigger every time. In our first week we had 571 entries, 100 more than the last campaign.  We had close to 11,000 entries in the first two campaigns and expect more this time.  I am pleased to see this program encouraging people to visit Surry Hills,” Ms Prendergast said.

“We want to get people experiencing the great cafes, eateries and retailers and with over 50 iconic businesses involved, entrants are spoiled for choice for where they can spend their $100 voucher.  We get great feedback from businesses that have already been part of the previous campaigns.”

“Devonshire Street is a really iconic strip, and the program is a great initiative and opportunity for people to interact with local businesses in a new way.  This really is a win-win for local businesses, consumers, and the wider Surry Hills community.”

Chef and owner of café Paddock on Crown, famous for delicious fare that is also a feast for the eyes, Lester Aruta has welcomed a number of new diners since being involved in the competition.

“Head to Surry Hills is a wonderful competition for us,” he said.

“Our first winner has gone on to become one of our regulars, almost every time he comes back with new mates.

“Another one of the winners brought in her whole family. We are really happy to be a part of this program.”
