Local resident wins Boxer Brand Dash national competition Jun 06, 2019, 09:13 am It was all fun and games at Lebo­wakgomo Boxer Superstore on Monday morning when the grocery outlet celebrated the Boxer Brand Dash national competition winner, Katlego Leeuw. The 24-year-old from Ga-Mphahlele Seleteng was chosen from among many other Boxer customers nationwide and won himself a R2 500 shopping voucher. He entered the competition last week after purchasing participating products and spending at least R300 in-store. The delighted winner said he visited the outlet with his mother Marvis Leeuw and used his cell phone to enter the competition. He stated that he could not believe it when he received a phone call to let him know that he had won the contest. “I entered the competition with no hopes of winning. All I did was to follow the instructions on the till slip to enter. The prize came as a surprise and I would like to thank my mother for shopping at Boxer. We love and enjoy products sold at the store because they are fresh and yummy. Boxer is the best store and I would like to thank the shop for choosing me as the winner,” Leeuw said. Participating products include Boxer eggs, meat, flour, sugar, cooking oil, washing powder and nappies. Boxer national marketing director Andrew Mills emphasised that the competition was initiated after the Easter holidays with the aim of giving back to their loyal customers. The winners are chosen randomly on a Friday and they visit the winning store on a Monday, he explained. Mills reiterated that the feeling of seeing winners and employees celebrate is amazing. “The competition can be won by anyone. This brings joy in customers and Boxer employees. We have crowned winners in various provinces already and the journey has been amazing. Boxer has been in existence for 43 years and people trust us with their grocery needs hence we have competitions to thank them,” Mills remarked and added that they value their customers and always treat them with respect. According to Mills, the competition ends in three weeks but urged Boxer customers to look out for the next exciting contest. The highlight of the prize handover was without doubt the Boxer Brand Dash race where Katlego had to race with a trolley around the store to collect ten selected products in a space of two minutes. Each product earned him R250 and upon completion of the race, Katlego received his R2 500 shopping voucher.
