Shop­ping lo­cally a good call for Karen

Wangaratta Chronicle - - News -

MAK­ING one of her reg­u­lar trips to buy din­ner at Lon­dri­gan Finer Foods paid off in a big way for Wal­dara wo­man Karen Smith.

Karen was a win­ner of the $1500 Op­tus Wan­garatta prize in the Buy Lo­cal and Win pro­mo­tion, and said she was ex­cited to win the prize.

“It re­ally is won­der­ful,” she said.

While she is not sure ex­actly what she will do with her prize yet, Karen said she is con­sid­er­ing up­grad­ing her phone.

Karen said she is com­mit­ted to shop­ping lo­cally as much as pos­si­ble.

“I be­lieve in shop­ping lo­cally and sup­port­ing the shop own­ers, keep­ing the money in town,” Karen said.

Karen added that she wanted to thank all in­volved in the Buy Lo­cal and Win pro­mo­tion.

Store man­ager Raff Moli­naro said that Op­tus Wan­garatta were happy to con­tinue to sup­port lo­cal and com­mu­nity ini­tia­tives such as the Buy Lo­cal and Win pro­mo­tion.
