#COREEASTER
March 19 – 31, 2018

The Core is excited to invite Calgarians of all ages to join the hunt in #COREeaster. The hunt runs from March 19th to March 31st, is completely free to enter, open to all and new eggs hidden daily!

It’s easy to join in the fun; retailers will hide plastic Easter eggs either in their stores or throughout the common areas of the shopping centre for shoppers to find. For all clues on your hunt, follow Core Shopping Twitter and Instagram accounts on where the eggs are stashed. Clues will be sent out throughout the day, so make sure to check back! Inside each colourful egg you will find a prize voucher for exciting retailer prizes such as gift cards, swag, gift baskets and more that can be claimed either at the participating retailer’s cash register or Guest Services (located on level 3).
