John Foster from Hastings turned a quick trip to his local Mitre 10 MEGA store in to $50,000, thanks to the Mitre 10 “Choicest Summer Ever” promotion.
Coming in to Mitre 10 MEGA Hastings for some Lumberlock Zinc plates and a couple of packs of Energizer batteries, John certainly came away with more than he bargained for.
John says the prize has come at the perfect time for him and his wife Jennifer, with an upcoming surgery booked that will mean he will be taking time off work.
The nationwide competition ran from 27 December 2018 to 31 January 2019, with those shopping online or in-store at any Mitre 10 or Mitre 10 MEGA store during that time eligible to go into the draw by simply entering the unique code on their receipt online.
Mitre 10 MEGA Hastings Store Manager Matt Suckling says he was rapt to have the prize go to one of his local shoppers.
“I’m really happy for John and Jennifer, and it’s just fantastic to know that the prize came at a great time for them. It’s just another way that we have been able to support the members of our local community,” says Matt.
