Whether it’s a kick start in the morning or an energy boost in the afternoon, your next cup of coffee could win you $5000, thanks to the Shop Nelson and Win promotion.

Theresa Dellabarca and Peter Gargiulo, who own and operate Di’Pierri’s Café in Buxton Square, say customer response to the promotion has been “huge”.

“They think it’s just amazing, the first thing I think [that’s made it successful] is that they don’t have to spend a lot of money, they can buy just a coffee or a slice,” says Theresa.

“The other thing is, we see some of our customers three times a day, so they’re busy filling out forms all the time, which is great,” she says.

Theresa and Peter, who are brother and sister, have owned the café for the last 23 years and say the promotion is a fresh approach to advertising and a great way to give back to the loyal customers who have supported them during their time in business.
