newsXpress Silver Sands owner Phil Foo was overjoyed a local customer (Chris Smith and his wife, Helen are regulars and shop in his store every week) had won the grand prize in the newsXpress ‘Back to Work’ promotion, exclaiming “It’s amazing that his name was pulled out of the draw after purchasing a chocolate bar and scratchie from my shop”.
Foo further explained “I couldn’t be happier with the result, Chris & Helen are great local people and obviously my team did a great job of suggesting they fill out an entry form“.
Trent Shields, newsXpress Marketing Manager added “this was our first ‘Back to Work’ promotion and to have received over 50,000 entries nationwide far exceeded our expectations and clearly justifies our decision to support members in this promotional event“. “To be able to give away a car to a lucky newsXpress customer is the cream on the cake!”
A beaming Smith (pictured left) remarked “the win could not have come at a better time as our current vehicle was on its last legs“. In complete contrast “the Toyota Yaris drives like a dream, with all the capabilities and and conforts of a big car – Helen enjoys it so much she has pinched it off me!“.
