ACRAL gives car away to encourage local shopping

In a bid to encourage shoppers to buy locally, Algarve retailers’ association (ACRAL) is offering the chance to win a brand new Citroën car to anyone who spends at least €10 shopping at local businesses.

The initiative started last weekend and will continue until Wednesday, January 4.

To let shoppers know which stores are taking part, a poster of the car – a Citroën C1 worth around €10,000 – will be placed in shop windows.

For every €10 spent, shoppers will be given a copy of a raffle ticket that will be included in the final draw.

As ACRAL president Álvaro Viegas explains, the goal is to “increase the competitiveness” of “smaller local stores”.
