NEW GLASGOW – It’s time to vote again Pictou County.

Sobeys in-store contest, Star of Christmas Sing Along, now has several videos posted for viewing from stores across Atlantic Canada.

The store with the most votes in each Atlantic province wins $5,000, which will be donated to a community group of their choice.

Local stores competing for the Nova Scotia prize include Aberdeen New Glasgow, Pictou, West Side New Glasgow and Stellarton. Voting is open until Dec. 13.

Sobeys first launched its Star of Christmas commercial in the late 1980s and it was showcased every Christmas season until the early 1990s. It was named the best Canadian holiday commercial numerous times.

In 2016, it composed a newer version of the song that included a video shoot at its Moncton location featuring employees, members of the community and a school choir.
