Deniliquin’s Val Tasker is the second winner in this year’s Spend & Win shop local promotion.
Val’s name was plucked from the entry barrel at Central IGA on Friday afternoon.
The lucky winner claimed a $200 Deniliquin Gift Card that can be spent at any of the businesses participating in the promotion (excluding ‘non-retail’). There are three more $200 gift cards to be won over the next three weeks.
Mrs Tasker said she was quite excited and grateful to receive the gift card.
‘‘For so many years I’ve been entering the shop local promotion and haven’t won, but I never gave up,’’ she said.
‘‘I’ve always supported local businesses through and through.
‘‘Deniliquin is the best place and the customer service here at our local businesses is just tremendous.’’
The major Spend & Win prizes — $1000 and $2000 gift cards — will be drawn December 14.
To be in the running to win, all you have to do is shop at participating stores. If you spend over $20 at participating stores you receive an entry envelope.
An entry coupon from the Pastoral Times must be placed in the envelope for it to be eligible (see page 12 today for more details).
Weekly draws are being held at 2pm each Friday for the next three weeks. All entries not previously drawn are eligible for the major prizes.
Spend & Win is a Pastoral Times initiative, with support from major sponsors Central IGA, Central Cellarbrations, Josh’s Bakehouse and Deniliquin Business Chamber.
