Shoes for a Year!

I bet this title caught your attention, didn’t it?

Just in time for fall, The Core has an exciting contest for all of you in need of a bit of a wardrobe update.

Or, for any of you that are self-proclaimed shoe obsessed.

With temperatures falling and cold winds rolling in, this is the perfect incentive to replace some of those worn out items, and ensure your tootsies are warm in the soon-to-be snowy weather.

Plus, we all know that a good pair of shoes can transform an outfit and bring everything together.

There are two ways to enter, and some pretty awesome prizes to win. But, the contest only runs from September 1 to September 30, 2016 – so you better get moving!



How to qualify? Spend a minimum of $125 at any of the shoe retailers in The Core.

How to win? Receive a ballot and drop it into the draw boxes on the 2nd floor. (One ballet per $125 spent)

Prize? Shoes for a year (12 gift cards at a minimum value of $125.00 each, from The Core and select retailers).

Questions? Learn more or check out eligibility, here.



How to qualify? Take a selfie (or better yet, a shoefie) with the shoe display located on the 2nd floor of The Core.

How to win? Post that pic on social media using #COREShoefie and tag @COREShopping

Prize? $125 gift card to The Core.

I’m always on a bit of a clothing budget (so that I can have more $$ to spend on travel), so I know firsthand that a gift card like the ones above can go pretty far! Or, if you’ve already got something in mind, this is the perfect prize to help you splurge on that rare, but highly coveted item. Because if you’re like me, once you’ve seen it…it has to be yours.


I even did a quick little peak around The Core, to check out some of the footwear on offer. A few of my fall & winter favourites include:


Clockwise: 1, 2, 3, 4a & 4b, 5, 6, 7, 8


Clockwise: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8

Or, perhaps you want to use your prize to purchase a new fall coat or bag to match? Either way, I’m sure you’ll have no trouble putting the money to good use.

Good luck & Let me know if you win!
