Two lucky Courts customers on Wednesday this week shopped to their heart’s content during Courts’ Frigidaire Supermarket Spree promotion, which took place at CK Greaves Marketplace in Pembroke.
Bequia resident Debra Davis and Venencia “Ann” Richardson of Petershope both got the opportunity to grab any product from the supermarket shelves up to the value of EC $2,700, in a space of two minutes.
The elated woman said that she was excited to qualify for the exercise, and was happy to be able to grab a number much-needed items that she would not have ordinarily picked up on any ordinary shopping day.
“I was kind of excited it was unbelievable because I never won anything from Courts.
“There were a couple of items I had on my list that I didn’t get but the things that I got, I am happy with that. I feel pretty good.
Davis says she intends to continue shopping at Courts, and used the opportunity to encourage others to make Courts the store of choice.
“I would like to thank Courts for giving me the opportunity to participate in this. I encourage others to shop at Courts because from time to time they give their customers the opportunity to take part in cool things like this,” Davis said.
Richardson, a shopkeeper, qualified for the event after purchasing a refrigerator during the campaign.
She was assisted by a family friend Anthony Brown, who made the run through the aisles on her behalf.
Brown received a loud cheer form spectators at the supermarket, when he made his second trip down the aisle and headed to the supermarket’s liquor section, where he made the most of the second minute, by grabbing top shelf premium drinks.
At the end of the allotted time, the quick shopper was just short of the stipulated target.
Robinson too expressed her excitement and gratitude at being selected for the event.
“this is an amazing feeling for me because I have never won anything in my life,” Robinsons said.
She added that she has always been a courts customer and was grateful to finally win something back from her favorite store.
Courts commercial manager Lisa Veira congratulated both ladies for being picked as the finalists and for their efforts at the supermarket. She indicate that Courts was happy to give shoppers the opportunity to take home more than the items purchased in the store.
Courts St Vincent has once again shown that the company brings value to its customers. We are giving them the opportunity to take home more than what we offer in store; we also add value to their homes and in extension their lives.”
