HAYWARD -- The city is offering prizes for those who make purchases at Hayward stores or patronize local restaurants.
The first 150 people who spend at least $150 locally Saturday or Sunday and show their receipts to city staff members will receive a goodie bag that includes movie tickets, gift certificates, discount coupons, and gift items from Hayward businesses and restaurants. This is the fourth year the city has run its "Shop Hayward" campaign.
The receipts should be taken to the information kiosk at Hayward City Hall rotunda, 777 B St., beginning at 8 a.m. Dec. 17. For more information, go to www.hayward-ca.gov.
