IT IS like a scene from a movie or something that we thought could only be dreamt of.

Three minutes to run around a grocery shop to grab (almost) everything you could possibly want to have stocked in your pantry from its shelves.

As customers continue to keep their pockets tightened it is not uncommon to see retailers reaching into theirs to repay the support of the community.

Repaying their customers is Supa IGA Warwick with its Grocery Grab.

Managing partner Shane Smith said the idea was all about giving back to the community

"We want to put the money back into the local community," Mr Smith said.

"I have done the grocery grab in the past at other places I have worked and it worked really well.

"This is the first grocery grab we have done and we are looking forward to doing them every three months.

"It won't just be a one-off but a continued thing to reward people for shopping in store and buying locally."

Mr Smith said this round of the competition would be running for the month or May.

"All you have to do is spend $100 in store and buy three editions of the Daily News to enter," he said.

But before you get too excited there are rules to be followed.

"The winner can only grab two of everything, but that goes right down to the flavour of a product," Mr Smith said.

"Meat, nappies, cigarettes and heath and beauty products are excluded.

"And there will be four nominate items that they have to grab to claim the prize."

The value of groceries based on previous competition is approximately $500.

 

TO ENTER:

Collect 3 Daily News mastheads dated between Tuesday, May 1, 2012, and Tuesday, June 5, 2012.

Add a docket $100 or more from Supa IGA Warwick.

Fill out an entry form.

It won't just be a one-off but a continued thing to reward people for shopping...
