For a couple of weeks now I have been the MC (Master of Ceremonies) for Pick ‘n Pay Hypermarket. This is to facilitate and promote their national ‘Shop Big. Win Big” promotion which is currently running. You might have seen the ads on TV or if you were in store in one of the hypermarkets. Can’t miss that big rugged bakkie parked inside – this will be the main prize give-away. It has been very exciting being part of the build-up over the last few weeks and I cannot wait to facilitate the final draw and announce the winner!
The promotion also includes weekly prize draws with some amazing appliances being given away every Saturday and I just love doing the hourly, half-hourly and eventually 10 minute interval announcements to remind shoppers to drop in their entries until the cut-off time for the weekly draw arrives. It is so amazing to hear people’s surprise and disbelief that they have won when we phone them with the news, and then the store manager has to convince them that we are really not joking. The till slips get drawn from the back of the bakkie (main prize) and the weekly winners then get phoned. Last week one of the winners was actually in-store and she collected her prize on the spot.
The final draw for the main prize (there are 20 bakkies to give away across the country) takes place in just over a week from now. I will be MC’ing and facilitating at one of the Gauteng stores and it is going to be a very exciting event with plenty of entertainment to keep the crowd going until the final draw and announcement. I can’t wait to see, and hear the winner’s reaction when I announce their name!
