Search For “Hidden Treasures”

By Staff | Feb 11, 2010

Valentines will be searching for Hidden Treasures at Emmetsburg Retail Association businesses this weekend.

When shoppers stop in participating businesses to hunt for values, they will also look for a Valentine. Finding that special Valentine makes them eligible to register to win one of eight great “Hidden Treasures.”

Stop and shop at ETC, Mainstreet Memories Mall, The Glass Shop, Hardware Hank, A Heavenly Celebration, NAPA Auto Parts, K. Jackson & Co., Saxton’s Greenhouse & Flowers, Emmetsburg Food Pride, Hughes Health Mart Pharmacy, Look Who’s Stamping, Pizza Ranch and Wentzel’s True Value Hardware/Just Ask Rental. Find the hidden Valentine heart and register for an opportunity to search for buried treasure.

Emmetsburg Retail Association members will be set up at the Wild Rose Casino & Resort on Sunday afternoon, Valentine’s Day. There will be two tables, one with “buried treasure” and one with prizes.

Eight designated shoppers will be there, too. Each will be searching for buried treasure. Prizes include a jewelry cleaning gift bag from Mainstreet Memories Mall; diamond jewelry from ETC; fragrance from A Heavenly Celebration; a scarf from K. Jackson & Co.; a box of chocolates from Hughes Health Mart Pharmacy; a family portrait from Ron’s Custom Matting & Framing; a dozen roses from Saxton’s Greenhouse & Flowers; and a $50 gift certificate from Wild Rose Casino & Resort, with a stained glass heart from The Glass Shop.

There is certain to be a crowd on hand to watch the shoppers dig for their buried treasure this Sunday afternoon at 2 p.m.

Even if you aren’t among the elite eight, you can pamper yourself while shopping in Emmetsburg this Friday and Saturday, Feb. 12 and 13. Pampering events include: free ring cleaning and treats by Ardelle at Mainstreet Memories Mall; massages by the minute at ETC; make-and-take Valentine at Look Who’s Stamping; a scarf tying demonstration at K. Jackson & Co.; Valentine cookies and coffee at Hardware Hank; homemade goodies by Angie at The Glass Shop; enjoy chocolates at the Pizza Ranch; a special on wiper blades at NAPA Auto Parts; sample Abdallah candies at Hughes Health Mart Pharmacy; and enjoy free popcorn and fudge at Wentzel’s True Value Hardware/Just Ask Rental.

The Valentine Hidden Treasures Event is the first Unique Opportunity of the year presented by Emmetsburg Retail Association.
