The Qualicum Beach Chamber of Commerce is planning on playing Santa in Qualicum Beach this year. Members of the board and staff will be surprising a lucky customer at one of the Chamber’s local member-businesses each weekday until Dec. 23.

The winner will receive a $50 gift certificate to put towards their purchase or keep for another time.

For your chance to win, visit Deez Bar & Grill on Dec. 16, Dolly’s Home Hardware (Dec. 17), The Mulberry Bush Book Store (Dec. 18) and Bailey’s in the Village (Dec. 19). The final two visits will be at A Step Above (Dec. 22) and Faye’s Gifts (Dec. 23)

All gift-giving visits will take place between 12 noon and 3 p.m., with the exception of Milner Garden which will happen after 5 p.m. Already visited in the event were Lefty’s Restaurant on Dec. 8, followed by Thalassa Restaurant (Dec. 9), Pharmasave (Dec. 10) and Threads and Treasures (Dec. 11), Milner Gardens (Dec. 12) and Arrowsmith Golf Resort (Dec. 15).
