SPAR Customer Wins Shopping for a Year in Competition Giveaway

February 06, 2023

A convenience store customer from Peterborough has won free shopping at SPAR for a year after entering a SPAR Christmas competition.

Petya Dinova collected SPAR vouchers to the value of £1,406.60 from SPAR Welland Road, Peterborough after winning one of four grand prizes in the SPAR ‘Merry Textmas’ competition, which has given away up to £100,000 worth of prizes.

The £1,406.60 prize value reflects the amount that an average person spends per year in convenience stores.

On winning the prize from SPAR, Petya Dinova said: ''I couldn’t believe my luck when I won a prize in the SPAR Merry Textmas competition! I look forward to spending my vouchers in my local SPAR store.''

SPAR Welland Road Store Manager James Mclean commented: “It’s fantastic to be able to reward our shoppers with prizes like this at what can be a difficult financial time of year for many. We really appreciate all our customers, and it’s a great way of saying thank you for shopping at SPAR.

“We hope that this prize goes a long way in helping Petya with her food shopping this year and that all our customers have enjoyed taking part in our Merry Textmas competition.”

Merry Textmas was a 25-day text-to-win competition that ran in more than 300 SPAR stores across England and Wales from 8th December to 1st January.

Weekly grand prize draws offered customers the chance to win one of four big budget-boosting prizes: cash towards Christmas, fuel for a year, energy for a year or shopping at SPAR for a year.

Shoppers could also play daily to win one of more than 30,000 spot prizes redeemable at SPAR stores simply by sending a text.

Additional entries into the weekly grand prize draw could be won by downloading the SPAR Merry Textmas app, which featured an augmented reality game that could be played in-store.
