SPAR Shopper Wins Ultimate Christmas in Competition Giveaway

February 06, 2023

A convenience store shopper from Scunthorpe has won the ultimate Christmas after entering a SPAR competition.

Chris Pilcher collected a cash prize of £1,130 from SPAR Brumby Corner in Scunthorpe 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 £1,130 prize value reflects the estimated amount that a typical household in the UK spends on Christmas.

SPAR Brumby Corner Store Manager, Rachel Smith, said: “It is 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 is a wonderful way of saying thank you for shopping at SPAR.

“We hope that Chris has a great time spending the money 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.
