Postdoc wins $1,000 shopping spree in downtown New Haven
Heather Smith, a postdoctoral fellow in internal medicine, is first winner of the “$1,000 Thursdays” shopping spree, sponsored by the Broadway and Chapel merchants associations along with Yale University Properties.
“$1,000 Thursdays” is one of several special promotions being presented during the holiday season by New Haven merchants.
There will be three more drawings in December. To participate, shoppers must pick up a $1,000 shopping card at participating stores between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. on a Thursday through Dec. 22, and travel to 10 shops and boutiques in the Audubon, Broadway and Chapel districts to receive a special stamp. No purchase is necessary. Then, they must return the stamped card to Info New Haven at 1000 Chapel St. One winner will be chosen each week.
