A LUCKY resident of Rincon de la Victoria has won €6,000, to spend in local stores thanks to the council project ‘Golden Client for One Day’.
The initiative was designed and paid for by the town’s government with the support of the local Business Owners Association (ACERV) to give a boost to the local economy.
Since December 12, residents of the town received a ticket for every purchase of €5 or more made in participating businesses.
Hundreds of residents deposited the tickets in a box placed in each store to participate in a raffle, which was drawn last week at the town hall.
The winner, Fernando Rubio Bernmudez, will have to spend the whole amount on March 20, starting at 4pm, and will not be able to spend more than €500 in each of the 117 participating stores.
In addition, the winner will have to choose at least one item from each district of Rincon de la Victoria.
Mayor of the town, Francisco Salado, emphasised the great success of the campaign while Commerce councillor, Marta Martin, said: “This project was created to help reduce commerce seasonality as well as promote local businesses.”
