THE an­nual Christ­mas Gift Ideas Com­pe­ti­tion win­ner was an­nounced on Tues­day, with Man­jimup’s Theresa Peos, 17, tak­ing home the $500 gift card prize from Steve’s Menswear on Gi­blett Street.

Com­pe­ti­tion co­or­di­na­tor Ben Ver­rall said more lo­cal busi­nesses had been in­volved this year, with an es­ti­mated 2500 en­tries, an in­crease on last year’s count.

“We en­joy giv­ing back, it’s a great thing to give a nice gift be­fore Christ­mas,” Mr Ver­rall said.

Miss Peos had bought a jumper for her sis­ter as a Christ­mas gift when she en­tered the com­pe­ti­tion, and said “if they’re lucky” her fam­ily might also share in some of the prize.

Steve’s Menswear store owner Anna Demiris said her store was ap­pre­cia­tive to be sup­ported by Man­jimup shop­pers.

“I think it’s a great com­pe­ti­tion that the lo­cal pa­per run,” she said.

“Just pro­mot­ing shop lo­cal,

that’s why we wanted to be part of it. Man­jimup has ev­ery­thing to of­fer in town for Christ­mas and all through­out the year, so I think it’s a great com­pe­ti­tion.”

Miss Demiris said she ap­pre­ci­ated the $500 worth of ad­ver­tis­ing Steve’s Menswear would re­ceive as the store winners, and sent Man­jimup well wishes for the fes­tive sea­son.

“We’re hop­ing every­body had a lovely Christ­mas,” she said.

“And best wishes for the New Year from Steve’s Menswear.”
