BUDDING DETECTIVES are invited to follow clues and find answers to win prizes at the Guildhall Shopping Centre in Stafford.

A total of £200 in shopping vouchers will be given to the winners of the treasure trail on May 30 and 31, and a prize will be given to everyone that enters.

The event is part of the #STYLEHUNTERS weekend - a partnership between the Guildhall and over 20 stores including River Island, to encourage people to visit the high street rather than shop online.

Guildhall Shopping Centre Marketing Manager Anne Graham said: “#STYLEHUNTERS promises to be a fun and exciting event for all the family, with free colour, style and fashion tips from our experts, and most importantly prizes, on offer to everyone who takes part.

“And if that were not enough, there will be further prizes of up to £100 in shopping vouchers for the best images posted from the hotspot at the finishing point, to our Facebook or Twitter pages!”

Laraine Robathan-Field, director of Only on the High Street, the consultancy behind #STYLEHUNTERS, said: “Traditional retailing continues to face stiff competition from the growth of online shopping, so it is imperative for retailers to be innovative and think creatively to survive and compete.

“The key is to provide the customer with an experience they can’t get online.

Steve Moran, Management Surveyor at DTZ who manage the Guildhall Shopping Centre said “It can be challenging to create events that will appeal to a wide range of customers but #STYLEHUNTERS ticks all the boxes. It is suitable for all ages and abilities, will offer terrific prizes and encourage interaction between our customers and our stores."
