As a ‘thank you’ for Customers' support following the re-opening of shops and services in Hinckley Town Centre, more than 50 businesses will be making a Special Offer during the October Half-Term, every day from Monday, 19th to Saturday, 24th October inclusive.
With Christmas coming, this will be an ideal time to take advantage of some really good bargains!
Hinckley BID is also creating a family TREASURE HUNT, with 12 clue answers placed on shop doorways and windows throughout the town centre. There will be £700 in prizes, so don't miss out! (Click here for details)
Shopping in Hinckley to be given a boost during half term week after councillors approved a free parking scheme in Hinckley town centre.
The scheme will allow shoppers to park for free any time from Monday 19 October to Friday 23 October in three town centre car parks:
This special offer for half-term expands on the free parking from 3pm initiative which has been available in these three car parks since it was approved by councillors late last year.
Council Leader Stuart Bray said:
Our town centre retailers and Hinckley BID are working hard to offer a range of Covid-secure promotional activities during the half-term holiday so I’m pleased to confirm this council will be supporting this initiative by extending free car parking all day at a number of our key town centre car parks which are already offering free parking from 3pm.
We trust this expanded free parking offer will make Hinckley an even more attractive destination and help shoppers to support our town centre businesses and take full advantage of the great range of shopping, leisure, services and events we have on offer here in Hinckley.
The 'family fun' element of our Shop Hinckley Half-Term event is our FREE Treasure Hunt in the town centre throughout the week, with £700 worth of prizes to be won.
Our grateful thanks goes to Jaspers (£100), F Hinds (£50) and Wilko (£40) for their generous support in donating gift voucher prizes! Hinckley BID and our wonderful town centre businesses have contributed 20 x £25 gift voucher prizes.
So, whether you're fitting in some early Christmas shopping or just entertaining the children during the half-term, you can't afford to miss out.
The Treasure Hunt can be completed with your children using your smartphone (see full instructions and purple link below), or you can simply download a print version of the entry form (also below).
The answers to the clues will be posted on the relevant shop windows throughout the week of the event, 19th to 24th October 2020. Just look out for Pirate Characters with the QR code below!
