llamaALAMEDA, Calif.—Cost Plus World Market is making holiday 2017 the year of the llama with themed treasure hunts, promotions and merchandise.

The specialty retailer launched the $1 Million Golden Llama Treasure Hunt in stores Nov. 1. Each day until November 22, five golden llamas will be hidden throughout the store. Daily clues will be shared through social media and online inviting customers to search for a golden llama in exchange for a reward coupon valued at $20, $50 or $100 to be used for merchandise in stores, for a total of $1 million in rewards.

In addition, each day starting on Black Friday, World Market will give away a trip for two to Peru. The first 100 customers through the door between Nov. 24 and 26 will receive a “Peru-se Our Store” scratcher for a chance to win one of three all-expense paid trips to the land of llamas.

Llamas also feature in a short YouTube video about a boy’s school holiday musical performance produced by World Market.

On Dec. 9, which is National Llama Day, World Market will host a Lotta Llama Love contest. Each store will have a life-sized llama figure in their stores that customers can take a photo with and post on Instagram, Twitter or and include #LottaLlamaLove and #WMEntry in the description for a chance to win one of 10 $500 World Market gift cards.

There will also be plenty of product for the llama lover, including ornaments, a jewelry holder, throw pillows, art prints, textiles, coffee mugs and more, featuring the furry animal’s likeness.
