Pemberton store kicks goal again in grand final comp
The 2018 AFL grand final is yet to be decided but one WA man is already a winner.
The West Australian Regional Newspapers’ annual competition to win two tickets to the AFL grand final was won by father-of-four Roy George, from Pemberton.
His prize includes return flights to Melbourne, three nights accommodation at Ibis Melbourne Hotel, airport transfers and two reserved seats at the big showdown between West Coast Eagles and Collingwood on Saturday.
As part of the competition, which was run in the Broome Advertiser, at any participating business, entrants put their names and phone numbers on their receipts and put it in the draw to win.
Mr George’s winning purchase of chocolates and a coffee was made at Pemberton General Store. This is the second time Pemberton General Store has had the winning docket.
Mr George said he was looking forward to travelling to Melbourne for the grand final.
“It will be a nice little holiday in a few weeks,” he said.
“Thank you to the West Australian Regional Newspaper group for holding the competition and thanks to Lionel and Sheree at the Pemberton General Store for taking part.”
Pemberton General Store owner Lionel Lee congratulated Mr George on his win.
“This is the second time we’ve taken part in the competition and the second time we’ve won,” he said. “We get lots of little sales, which generates a lot of dockets.”
