Smil­ing at the check­out

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

AS the say­ing goes win­ners are grinners and that’s cer­tainly the case for Port Dou­glas lo­cal Ali­son Franz.

Ms Franz en­tered a statewide com­pe­ti­tion at the Port Dou­glas Supa IGA su­per­mar­ket, and promptly for­got about it.

But that soon changed when con­tacted and told she’d won $10,000 in shop­ping vouch­ers at her lo­cal IGA.

‘‘I can’t be­lieve it, $200 a week ba­si­cally for a year means a lot and is a huge help to the bud­get,’’ Ms Franz said.

‘‘I al­ways shop here, and I guess that will con­tinue!’’

Equally de­lighted was Supa IGA lo­cal man­ager Den­zil Bignoux.

‘‘We’re thrilled that Ali­son has won,’’ Mr Bignoux said.

‘‘We’ve en­coun­tered some tough times with the round­about con­struc­tion, but we’re grate­ful for our loyal cus­tomers who con­tinue to sup­port us.’’

Daugh­ter Katie was also very happy, per­haps hop­ing for a few ex­tra treats over the next year!
