LIQUOR HUB LAUNCHES CHRISTMAS PROMOTION
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.
