Tens of business players are enthusiastically participating in the Jogja Great Sale, which is being held for one month until Oct. 28 as part of Yogyakarta city’s 262ndanniversary celebration.
“Not only malls but hotels, restaurants, and attractions such as GL Zoo, are also joining this event. I’m surprised there are so many participants,” said Jogja Great Sale chairman Rudi P. Budiharjo in Yogyakarta on Monday as quoted by Antara.
According to recent data, the event’s participants include six shopping malls, six attractions, 57 hotels, and 31 restaurants.
Rudi said the businesses were not required to participate in the event for one full month; four days are enough. However, many have decided to offer sale items or services until late October.
During the event, customers will receive one lottery ticket for every transaction of at least Rp 100,000 (US$6.71). Interestingly, they do not need to fill in any data as they are only required to send an SMS.
The lottery itself will be held at the end of October. “The winner could also be a tourist who lives outside Yogyakarta,” he said, adding that among the prizes available was a Daihatsu Sigra as the main prize, as well as five motorcycles.
Other than the Jogja Great Sale, the city is also hosting Festival Jogja as the main event of the anniversary celebration.
