The crawl starts on Friday, August 13 (yes, that’s correct, Friday, the 13th) and continues through Sunday, August 22.
Each participating store will have a gift basket worth at least $100 to raffle off. Stop in and get your passport (available at all stores) stamped and enter your name for a chance to win the store’s gift basket. Each store will also be offering a discount for purchases along with a free exclusive store pattern.
If you visit 10 stores, you’ll get a chance to participate in the grand raffle prize - a gift basket with items worth over $500. There are additional raffle tickets for visiting one store in each of 5 regions and also for visiting 15 stores. So there are opportunities to get 3 raffle tickets for the grand prize.
