If there is one suburb that captures the humble essence of the Gold Coast with ease, it is Coolangatta. The border town has managed to retain its unique identity throughout the evolution of our coastline. Wander the backstreets, and you’ll find local skateboarders, others walking their longboards out to Rainbow Bay, and smiley locals with shopping bags sitting by their sides as they enjoy a coffee in the sun.
Throughout the pandemic, our Coolangatta has been right in the middle of ever-changing restrictions. To boost spirits, The Strand at Coolangatta is asking all Gold Coasters to come on down to Coolangatta and shop #StrandLocal, in return you could even win some incredible prizes!
Not only will you be supporting the great people behind some of the town’s most-loved shops, but you will also be in with a chance to win not just once, but up to twenty times — over twenty days, no less!
To be in the running, all you have to do is spend $20 or more in The Strand (excluding Woolworths), complete a simple online form and upload your receipt/s, and that’s it! It couldn’t be simpler, right?
Then just sit back and wait to see if you’re one of the lucky ones!
The promotion is underway and will run until Saturday 2nd October with a plethora of prizes including a $200 swimsuit for the avid beachgoer at Beach & Beyond, a $150 voucher at Quicksilver’s Boardriders store if you’re a keen surfer; or even a $100 voucher to the Pancake Diner for stacks of mouth-watering pancakes!
To round off a huge collection of prizes, there will be a (drum roll) major prize draw held on Monday 11th October. Two Home Entertainment Packages will be given away, featuring LG 50” 4K Smart TV, Bose Smart Soundbar 300, Apple iPad Mini, Apple Watch SE 40mm and Nintendo Switch Console –over $3,000 of value!
Seriously, what a collection of prizes! We love being rewarded for spending — it’s our favourite type of spending.
And this isn’t all, folks. Follow the Strand’s Facebook and Instagram for even more prizes! Win a $150 voucher to local-fave Griffith Street Larder — now that’s some serious breakfast goals right there! Plus, head in Centre and snap your photo at the installation on Ground Level near Crema Espresso and share with @strandcoolangatta #StrandLocal to WIN 1 of 3 $50 Gift Cards.
Heading down to Coolangatta for bites, shopping, and of course, some of our best beaches is a no brainer. So, what are you waiting for? Get yourself down to Cooly pronto and shop #StrandLocal.
