“I am ex­cited, I bought gro­ceries for R900, and I en­tered the com­pe­ti­tion with­out an aim of win­ning”

An in­ner City res­i­dent, An­nie Juwao drove away in a brand-new Toy­ota Etios on Fri­day Oc­to­ber 10, at the 250th boxer su­per­store sit­u­ated in the heart of the In­ner City at Cnr Jeppe and Von Ban­dis.

Store man­ager Maxwell Ramela said from july 2018 Boxer Su­per­stores ad­ver­tised a ‘win a car com­pe­ti­tion’ in­side the store at the open­ing of the Branch.

“The cus­tomers were ex­pected to buy any­thing that would cost over R250. They signed their slip on the back and in­cluded their name, ID num­ber and cell­phone num­ber af­ter­which, con­tes­tants would drop the slip in the car parked in­side the shop.

Ramela said, the draw was held and qual­i­fy­ing slips were picked. The fi­nal­ist was then con­tacted on the day of the draw.

“I am ex­cited, I bought gro­ceries for R900, and I en­tered the com­pe­ti­tion with­out an aim of win­ning,” said Juwao.

“I would like to en­cour­age other shop­pers to en­ter the com­pe­ti­tion, my win­ning just goes to show that you can win big if you en­ter, even if it is for the first time,” said Juwao when she re­gained her com­po­sure.

An­nie who has been a res­i­dent In the In­ner City for about 9 years brought her only child for the draw.

Colin Heml­son a re­gional man­ager from Boxer Su­per­stores Head­quar­ters en­cour­aged shop­pers that did not win by ex­plain­ing that Boxer runs com­petions from time to time. “Boxer is cur­rently run­ning a com­pe­ti­tion in which our lucky shop­pers stand a chance to win a wed­ding pack­age worth about R100 000,” Heml­son re­vealed.

Juwao told the In­ner City Gazette team that, when she got the first call she thought it was a scam – she had to dial back to con­firm if that was the store call­ing.

An­nie said she will use the car to trans­port her fam­ily around and will con­tinue shop­ping at Boxer Su­per­stores.
