We are so excited to help you gift your loved ones something special from Old Strathcona! From November 25 to December 18, 2022 all you have to do is share your #WhyteWishes for someone special and you can win. It can be anything from any business, from shoes to jewelry and spa day to dinner at a favourite restaurant.

The Old Strathcona Business Association is granting one gift wish every day.

Here’s how you can win:

1. Visit any Old Strathcona business Nov 25 – Dec 18. (Here’s our full business directory)
2. Snap a photo of that perfect gift or experience for someone on your list (or yourself!).
3. Share your photo on Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #WhyteWishes.
4. Don’t forget to tag @oldstrathcona and the business you are shopping at.

We’re buying one gift every day of the contest (max. value $100), and you can enter as many times as you’d like. Follow the hashtag #WhyteWishes to see what we’ve bought and get some great gift inspiration, and check out our Holiday Map for 100+ places to shop.

Bonus Draws

Hit the Ave every weekend and enter to win one of our bonus prizes (also worth up to $100). Just post a photo from one of the weekly theme businesses and you’re automatically entered.

Dec 16-18 🎁 Post a shopping photo or IRL wish at any of the businesses pinned on our Holiday Shopping Map and you’re in the bonus draw for an additional $100 gift.

Other than being tied to weekend dates, all the same rules apply for the bonus draws. Make sure to use the hashtag #WhyteWishes and tag both @OldStrathcona and the business so we see your posts.
