Dean Readman is the winner of the Vernon Morning Star’s $2,023 shopping spree contest.
Readman was personally gifted nine $200 gift cards, and one $223 card, from local businesses around Vernon.
“This is going to be a good day,” remarked Readman, who is semi-retired.
The victorious contest winner was personally chauffeured around town to Rona, Simply Delicious, Samosa Joes, Polished Mercantile, Bean To Cup, Anna’s Vitamins Plus, Big Box Outlet, Valhalla Pure Outfitters, City Furniture and Midtown Bistro where the owners and managers of the establishments presented gift cards to him.
Readman was ecstatic to grab his prize from Bean to Cup, as that was where his name was entered in the draw.
“My friend actually entered my name while we were sitting for coffee at Bean To Cup, so I was very happy he did,” laughed Readman.
“I think I’ll gift him my Rona card, as he is doing a lot of renovations for his place.”
The Morning Star wants to thank everyone, including the close to 20 businesses, for participating, as we received thousands of submissions.
The hope is to do it again, in 2024, for a dollar more!
