Nis­san makes cus­tomer’s Christ­mas with $10K prize

Penticton Herald - - CITY & REGION - By KEITH LACEY

Pen­tic­ton’s Ralph Torkel says he’s go­ing to pur­chase a few lot­tery tick­ets this week­end as he hopes to con­tinue his lucky streak after win­ning $10,000 from Pen­tic­ton Nis­san on Tues­day.

The new auto deal­er­ship, which opened in early March in the new Satikw Cross­ing on Green Av­enue, de­cided to run a pro­mo­tion to of­fer a $10,000 cash prize to any­one who pur­chased a new or used ve­hi­cle in the month of Novem­ber.

With a crowd of about 50 cus­tomers and the full com­ple­ment of deal­er­ship staff look­ing on, Torkel’s name was drawn.

“I’ve never won more than 20 bucks,” said Torkel, who pur­chased a 2018 Nis­san Rogue SUV in the mid­dle of Novem­ber. “It’s es­pe­cially nice to win some money with Christ­mas com­ing.”

Torkel was greeted by sales­per­son Mike Turner, who sold him his new ve­hi­cle.

Pen­tic­ton Nis­san gen­eral man­ager Scott Bar­ber said it was his idea to hold the pro­mo­tion and he thanked John Kot, owner of the Kot Auto Group, for sup­port­ing the pro­mo­tion.

“I thought it would be a fun thing for us to do and show ap­pre­ci­a­tion for all of our cus­tomers who have sup­ported us since we opened in March,” he said.

“We plan on do­ing some­thing like this once a year mov­ing for­ward.”
