As 27 shoppers in Lusaka win goods worth over K50,000 from Pick n Pay and Spar
Twenty-seven lucky draw winners have successfully taken to the starting blocks in Coca-Cola’s fun-packed weekly supermarket trolley dash, where they grab as many goods as possible to keep for free.
The energetic participants have just 60 seconds to fill their trolleys at selected Pick n Pay and Spar Supermarkets in Lusaka, in order to get to keep the goods they had selected.
The Lusaka shoppers were drawn from the on-going Coca Cola trolley dash competition launched last month, with a total of 200 shoppers being given the opportunity to race their wheels around selected supermarkets to fill a trolley with a maximum K3,000 worth of goods.
The first trolley dash was held in the first week on November while the second and third dashes were held in the second week, and dashes will continue on a weekly basis until the end of December.
Soneni Kafwaba walked away with goods worth K3,000 from Spar Arcades and Charles Chileshe with goodies worth K2,467 from Pick n Pay East Park.
Other winners included Misheck Mbewe, Humphrey Chimfwembe and Chongo Banda who participated in the dash at Pick n Pay, while Timothy Kasolo, Cecilia Mbewe and Vincent Mawele competed at Spar Arcades.
Others include Andrew Phiri, Mwandu Mweemba, Thomas Sakala, Kabwe Musonda, Sanana Situmbeko, Dickson Musonda and Chibesa Kunda.
The winners said they were happy to have won the competition and to have participated in the dash, and encouraged other shoppers to enter the competition.
“This is not the first time I am winning a Coca-Cola competition. Last time I won a pool table. I am so happy and wish to encourage people to take part in such competitions. They are real,” said Mr Banda.
An excited and out-of-breath Ms Kafwaba expressed happiness that she had got what she wanted: “This is the first time I am winning a competition. I was overwhelmed as I dashed to pick the things. I am happy that I got what I wanted. All my groceries have been sorted out.”
Ms Mbewe said: “I wanted to reach the K3,000 maximum worth of goods but I am happy with what I have. This is a ‘thank you’ for buying Coca-Cola at K7.50. I want to encourage people that this competition is for everyone and is real. The SMS (short message system) cost only 85ngwee. I will continue participating.”
Edna Zimba who participated in the Pick n Pay Makeni Mall said the dash came at the right time especially that she did not have food at home.
“I am so happy. I did not have cooking oil and even drink for kids to take to school. My fridge was also empty; I did not have relish. I am so happy that I got the things I needed. When I was called that I was to participate in the trolley dash, I thought I was dreaming. May Coca- cola continue with this competition,” she said.
The Trolley Dash competition, which began on October 10th, 2016, runs through to December 31, 2016. Any purchase of the following will qualify to be entered into the draw: Coca-Cola, Coke Zero, Coke Light, Fanta, Sprite, Sparletta Creme Soda, Stoney or Lemon Twist, in 300ml and two-litre form. Promotional packs can be spotted by their lime-green bottle tops.
After purchase, the code can be found inside the crown or closure and should then be texted to 3232. Each week, 15 consumers will be selected to participate in the trolley dash. A number of runner-up prizes in the shape of talk time courtesy of Instant Airtime will also be distributed.
The weekly promotion is expected to give a total of 200 shoppers an opportunity to race their wheels around selected supermarkets for 60 seconds to fill a trolley of shopping. The lucky winners have just one remaining hurdle before they speed their trolley through the checkout – and that’s to make sure that a Coca-Cola product was on their shopping list, as they had to include an item from the company’s range and load it into their trolley with the rest of their goods within the alloted time.
