Time for Spending Spree—2014 Taipei Shopping Festival

The Taipei Shopping Festival is here again! Mayor Hau Lung-bin joined representatives from ten commercial districts and the retail industry in unveiling the annual event at city hall on July 29.

According to Hau, the City launched the event in 2008 with the involvement of local businesses. The shopping fest has been growing in size over the years: The event in 2013 saw the participation of a remarkable 3,000 businesses from nine commercial districts and three hypermarkets. Approximately 120,000 people signed up for last year’s event, making purchases worth a total of NT$1 billion. Hau believes that the city’s retail world could see record-breaking sales this year, spurred by the enticing deals and raffle prizes featured in the shopping carnival. The mayor noted that by registering their invoice numbers at the activity website, shoppers will be eligible for a raffle offering many rewards – including a car! For every NT$100 spent, the shopper will get a chance at winning prizes. In addition, a NT$100,000 shopping voucher draw will be conducted every week during the period of the 2014 Taipei Shopping Festival (six weeks) between August 1 and September 15.Hau invited residents from Taipei and other municipalities to indulge themselves in a shopping spree during this particular period. While promising that he will do his part in contributing to the sales, he joked that he will not sign up for the invoice activity and will waive the right for the raffle.For more information, please visit the Chinese website of the 2014 Taipei Shopping Festival: http://www.shoppingintaipei.com/
