The fee for this year's passport is $5, due to COVID circumstances.
Pennsylvania's stay-at-home order made us unable to meet for two of our final planning meetings for this year's event. With phone calls and e-mails, we decided to still move forward with this year's Shop Hop, but a little differently than in previous years.
We know everyone's struggling due to COVID-19 in one way or another, and we feel we should take a step back to the basics this year and offer the passport for only $5. This will give more of you the chance to participate. If a location is offering a make & take, you will be able to purchase those for an additional cost as you shop each location. We will not be offering make & takes as part of the Shop Hop fee as mandatory closures have created significant supply/demand issues with many of the products we offer and use in the make/takes. Supplies availability has been unpredictable already, and the gift we had chosen to use this year was not available as well, so we opted to go a simpler route instead of cancelling our annual event.
All prize drawings will stay the same for this year’s Shop Hop. As in previous years, you will have the chance to win your home store's gift certificate prize for those visiting 8 or more locations, and the grand prize baskets for visiting 10 or more.
And something a little fun for this year's shop hop will be a special card contest. More details will follow on this fun contest, but there will be five winners for this contest with special prizes.
We all look forward to this event each fall, and we wanted to find an easier way to include everyone among all the changes that we've had and are still possibly coming. We hope you will join us for this year's event. Pre-orders began on Saturday, May 2nd. Hopefully soon, you can visit our locations to turn in your registration forms. If not, you can mail them in or call the locations to place your order. Each person attending will need to fill out a registration form.
Registration form can be found here.
We look forward to seeing you soon. If you are like us, you are ready to get out and about and have some normalcy again.
