A BREAKFAST out at the Coffee Club has helped Ipswich's Tennille Almond win a shopping spree around the city.

Ms Almond was the lucky winner of the second major prize worth $2750 in the Queensland Times and Ipswich Advertiser shop local campaign City Pride.

Her entry form was chosen out of hundreds mailed to the QT office during August from shoppers spending up big at participating businesses.

Mrs Almond can now spend the $2750 prize at more than 370 businesses across Ipswich who signed up for the 2015 campaign.

She said she has plenty of plans on how to spend it with big events such as Christmas coming up.

"I've got lots of ideas," she said.

"I've got four kids so I'm sure they'll help me spend it."

Mrs Almond encouraged spending money locally and said shoppers did not have to leave Ipswich to find what they wanted.

She gave a big thank you to City Pride organisers and sponsors for the prize.

The campaign is now in its second year and calls on Ipswich residents to support local business throughout the month.

Shoppers now have one more chance to win big in the campaign with a final prize worth $5500.

You can pick up an entry form when buying goods or services at participating stores until August 31.

Forms must then be mailed back to the QT office at 260 Brisbane St by noon on September 4 to go into the prize draw.
