You can attend as many or as few shops as you like. Just be sure to pick up your passport at your first shop or bring it with you (you can download it here) and drop it off at your last shop to be entered in the raffles. Also, make sure to make sure you name, phone number, and email are clearly legible on the top of your passport.
