Shopping Scramble

The Best Girlfriend Day Ever!  
If you love to shop, then gather some friends for the 15th annual Downtown Petoskey Shopping Scramble!

Modeled after a golf outing, the Shopping Scramble allows your group to spend a day shopping, dining, and enjoying the amenities without worrying about sand traps or water hazards! Competitors will test their skills on the pristine shopping course of Downtown Petoskey.

On the first Saturday of October, shoppers gather in the morning to enjoy coffee and breakfast treats, then head out to shop 18 holes in Downtown Petoskey. In between, shoppers will enjoy an elegant lunch and a fashion show.  The day ends at the 19th Hole Party with great food and prizes.

Participants are asked to put together teams and enjoy a day of shopping in Downtown Petoskey. Tickets for the event are $50 for each player and include:

  • A breakfast of coffee and assorted pastries

  • Lunch with a fashion show presented by area merchants

  • 19th Hole Celebration with hors d’oeuvres and prizes

  • Special deals and promotions just for Scramble participants

In addition, each Shopping Scramble participant will receive a gift bag filled with donations from area merchants and a chance to win several grand prizes and many more door prizes and awards.

Dozens of businesses in Downtown Petoskey will be offering special promotions exclusively to Shopping Scramble participants, including “hole in one” discounts or a percentage off purchases made that day.

For more information call Andi at 231-348-0388.
