SHOP­PERS can look for­ward to a siz­zling festive sea­son with Whole­sale Cen­tre Liquor Hub hav­ing launched its Christ­mas pro­mo­tion which will run un­til Jan­uary 13, 2017.

Up for grabs is a grand prize of a Re­nault Kwid and var­i­ous con­so­la­tion prizes in­clud­ing so­lar gey­sers, fridges and DStv de­coders.

To stand a chance to win the grand prize, shop­pers have to buy par­tic­i­pat­ing prod­ucts worth $50 and for the con­so­la­tion prizes; one has to buy gro­ceries worth $20.

To en­ter the com­pe­ti­tion, con­sumers have to fill in their per­sonal de­tails at the back of the orig­i­nal till slip and drop it in the en­try box pro­vided in store.

Liquor Hub pur­chas­ing man­ager Mr Stan­ford Mazura said the pro­mo­tion was an op­por­tu­nity for shop­pers to win them­selves Christ­mas gifts.

“Our goods are go­ing for af­ford­able prices so we urge cus­tomers to come and shop with us and stand a chance to win ex­cit­ing prizes. We also en­cour­age those who buy in bulk – schools, hos­pi­tals and other in­sti­tu­tions – to also take part in the com­pe­ti­tion. This is our way of re­ward­ing our loyal cus­tomers for show­ing con­fi­dence in us,” said Mr Mazura.

He said the fi­nal draw will be held on Jan­uary 14, 2017 al­though de­tails of the draw will be re­leased in due course.

“We’re still work­ing on the finer de­tails of the draw and we’ll ad­vise our cus­tomers as soon as we’re done. In the mean­time, they must shop with us, par­tic­i­pate in the com­pe­ti­tion and stand a chance to win big,” said Mr Mazura.

Mean­while, reg­is­tra­tion for the sec­ond edi­tion of the Liquor Hub 10KM Fun Run and 5KM Char­ity Walk to be held in the city next month is cur­rently un­der­way.

Busi­ness mogul and Liquor Hub owner Mr Raj Modi is bankrolling the race to the tune of $10 000 and the Bu­l­awayo Ath­let­ics Board (Bab), which is co­or­di­nat­ing the meet, be­lieves the December 4 event will at­tract top-notch ath­letes.

Mr Manuel Mpofu, Bab chair­man, said reg­is­tra­tion fees for the event are pegged at $5 for se­niors and $2 for ju­niors.

“As Bab we’re pleased to an­nounce that reg­is­tra­tion for our last event of the year has opened. Those in­ter­ested in par­tic­i­pat­ing in the race can reg­is­ter at Liquor Hub, along Fife Street. We en­cour­age ath­letes to reg­is­ter on time to avoid last minute has­sles be­cause we ex­pect all the coun­try’s top run­ners to par­tic­i­pate,” said Mr Mpofu.

He said the top three in the se­nior men and women’s events will each get $500, $300 and $200.

The ju­nior men’s and women’s first prize is $150, run­ners-up $100 and third-placed $50.

Wheelchair race win­ners in both the men’s and women’s cat­e­gories will get $200 and run­ners-up $150.There are no prizes for the mas­ters and grand­mas­ters’ cat­e­gories, with Mr Mpofu say­ing the bulk of the spon­sor­ship pack­age will be do­nated to char­ity.

The race will start at Liquor Hub along Fife Street, be­tween 4th and 5th Av­enues.

Ath­letes will run east along 4th Av­enue past the Old Mu­tual Heath Streak Cricket Academy to the Khu­malo Hockey Sta­dium and back into town via Leopold Takawira Av­enue and fin­ish at Liquor Hub.

The re­tail en­ter­prise opened its doors to the pub­lic on Fe­bru­ary 14 last year and has grown in leaps and bounds since then.
