Lucky shopper to win $2750

GET your entries in quick - Ipswich shoppers only have until Friday to enter the first major prize giveaway in The Queensland Times competition City Pride.

The gift wallet contains $2750 which can be spent at more than 370 businesses taking part in City Pride.

To be eligible, all you have to do is shop at a City Pride participating business and pick up an entry form at the register.

Make sure to hold on to your receipt to claim the prize.

Throughout the month-long competition, the QT has been calling on our Facebook fans to vote for their favourite businesses in the city.

The latest poll had shoppers choose the top stores in Riverlink Shopping Centre, with cinema buffs voting to put Limelight Cinemas in the number one spot.

Ipswich shoppers are big coffee fans, with Gloria Jeans coming in at number two and Coffee Club at number 10.

Health stores were the other big vote-winners - Nutrition Station, Goodlife health clubs and Riverlink Medical Centre also made it into the top 10.

The next round of nominations will be posted to facebook.com/thequeenslandtimes on Wednesday.

The City Pride campaign will run until the end of August.

A second prize also worth $2750 will be drawn on August 22 before the grand prize of $5500 is drawn on September 5.

Winners' names will be published in the QT.
