Patrick Brady, a customer of SPAR Barrack Street in Waterford, is to get one year’s respite from paying the household bills after being announced as the lucky winner of SPAR Ireland’s ‘Pay Your Bills for a Year’ competition.
Patrick will now see his monthly outgoings shrink as SPAR picks up the tab for up to €1,000 in bills every month throughout 2013.
Owner of SPAR Barrack Street, Gerry Grey said: “We are delighted to see one of our customers win this fantastic prize and we hope it will be a welcome relief not to have to worry about the bills for one whole year. We appreciate that times are still difficult and this competition is just one small way in which we can give something back to our shoppers who continue to support local Irish businesses, such as SPAR.”
The competition was run in association with the Sunday Independent and to enter, shoppers were required to collect tokens from the paper and submit to their local SPAR store in conjunction with their entry form.
