Final shopping spree winner named

Stephanie Ax was the winner of the “loser’s bracket” for the 2011 Holiday Shopping Spree sponsored by Peabody Main Street and local businesses.

Ax’s winning ticket was one of the partially completed Shopping Spree tickets entered in a special drawing on Dec. 29. She won $75 in Peabody Bucks.

A count of the completed tickets in the drawing indicated that local shoppers spent $16,650 between Dec. 2 and Dec. 22.

“We were pleased to do the math on the partially completed tickets and find that they added up to an additional $3,270 spent with local merchants,” Peabody Main Street Director Shane Marler said. “And the prize money — $1,375 — was given in the form of Peabody Bucks, so it will be spent in town as well.

“The grand total for the promotion was $21,295,” he said.
