Festive Tree of Giveaways!

We celebrated the 2016 holiday season with our Festive Tree of Giveaways promotion. With each vehicle purchased, our customers were able to choose a secret envelope from our tree filled with gifts ranging from $100 and $250 gift cards and service credits, BBQs and Diamond Detailing packages, to the Grand Prize of $1,000 cash! Although the prizes chosen were awesome, the grand prize was not picked from the tree. Valley Volkswagen in turn donated this special gift to the Valley Regional Hospital Foundation!

We Have a Winner!

Congratulations to John Sawler of Port Williams, the winner of our Great Big Jetta Give-A-Way contest that took place on December 15, 2016. What a great holiday gift!

Thanks to all who stopped by Valley Volkswagen to enter their names into our draw!

Pick it to Win it/Salvation Army

During the month of December, we here at Valley Volkswagen had a "Pick it to Win it" event. The "Pick it to Win it" event gave anyone who purchased a new or used retail vehicle from December 1-23 the chance to pick an envelope off our Valley Volkswagen Christmas tree. Each envelope contained a number that corresponded with a prize; the grand prize was $1,000! Despite a successful turnout, the $1,000 was not chosen from the tree.

Valley Volkswagen is always looking for ways to support the Annapolis Valley Community, so we've chosen to donate the $1,000 to the Salvation Army!

Thank you to all those who participated, and if you would like to also make a donation to the Salvation Army, please check out their website or you can call the Kentville location directly at 902-678-4534.
