Ja­son’s a dab hand at mad grab for gro­ceries

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

With just 90 sec­onds on the clock, Ja­son Paw­son sped around New World Mata­mata grab­bing all that he could fit in his trol­ley.

On Mon­day he com­pleted the Gro­cery Grab on be­half of his wife Rachel Lowrie who won the competition worth $500, cour­tesy of New World Mata­mata and Nes­tle.

Mr Paw­son who man­aged to grab $241.99 worth of gro­ceries in­clud­ing meat, frozen veg­eta­bles, chips, oil and wash­ing powder, said he was happy with his grab. He was given a voucher to make up the rest of the $500.

‘‘I had a plan in place, but once the clock started that went out the win­dow and I just ran and grabbed what I could,’’ he said.

Mrs Lowrie said she was ‘‘over the moon’’.

‘‘Since we moved to Mata­mata three years ago we’ve been shop­ping at New World. We like the store, how it’s laid out, and we’ve come to know the peo­ple who work there,’’ she said.

‘‘The staff are great and we’ll of­ten have a chat, which makes gro­cery shop­ping not such a chore.’’

New World Mata­mata owner­op­er­a­tor Ewan Ather­ton was thrilled to be hold­ing the competition in his store.

‘‘Not only is it a great way to re­ward our loyal cus­tomers, it’s a bit of fun as well.’’

The New World Gro­cery Grab ran from June 13 to 26, with shop­pers au­to­mat­i­cally en­tered when they pur­chased any four Nes­tle prod­ucts in the Maggi, Nescafe, Allen’s, Milo and Un­cle Toby’s range and swiped their Fly Buys card at the check­out.
