More winners guaranteed for Shop n Win competition


Shop n Win is back – but with more prizes and more chances to win.

The popular retail competition has been running for three years, but this year the winner will go on a $5000 shopping spree in Nelson city with the runner up winning a $500 House of Travel voucher and third place a $200 dining voucher.

The additional prizes mean this is the biggest Shop n Win ever.

The competition is run by Nelson Weekly in conjunction with Uniquely Nelson. Weekly managing director Andrew Board says the new prizes will create more winners.

“The past two years have seen two people win one big prize each. This year we wanted more winners without taking away from the thrill of the big $5000 prize. So, it’s exciting that we’ve been able to do that.”

Another new twist will mean shoppers can enter via a tablet in the store, instead of paper entry forms. Uniquely Nelson manager Simon Duffy says this was introduced due to feedback from retailers and shoppers and means it will be even easier for people to enter.

To enter the Shop n Win competition is easy. Simply buy something at any of the more than 40 participating stores, fill in the entry form and you’re in to win.

The competition runs until the end of May with the winners announced in early June.
