Port Jefferson Retailers Association finished up its second-ever Port-Oply game, and, again, it was a success.
“A lot of customers were excited to see the game back again this year,” said Steve Muñoz of The Amazing Olive.
To play the game, patrons had picked up Monopoly-themed game boards that are filled with Port Jefferson retail locations. Every time a shopper then bought an item at a participating merchant they receive a mark on their board.
The more marks meant more raffles for the grand prize at the end of the contest.
Port-Oply ran from Oct. 6 through Nov. 12.
This year’s grand-prize winner went to William Sheehan, a Port Jefferson resident, who shopped at 11 shops. He received a gift basket with a variety of items from different village retailers.
In addition to Sheehan, there were two other basket winners and 10 other contestants who earned $20 worth of Port Jefferson Retail Dollars.
Muñoz wasn’t the only business owner to see the excitement that drew from Port-Oply.
“We had a lot of returning costumers,” said Marianna Cucchi of The Soap Box. “One of the winners from last year came backs with the hopes of winning again.”
