National prize winners announced!

As Today’s Group Checkout Mania trade event days draw to a close we are delighted to reveal this year’s national prize winners.

Our 2015 trade event days were our biggest and best yet with incredible deals across the nation’s leading brands and over £60,000 worth of prizes given away across the 34 event days held at Today’s wholesale member depots. This year’s national prizes included a van, £10,000 to spend in depot and two lots of £5,000 to spend in depot.

Meet this year’s lucky retail winners..IMG_7647

Mr Kasinathan, New Waltham Food & Wine, Dee Bee customer:

“Winning a van is amazing – I was only looking last week at part exchanging my car to buy a small van and now I don’t have to! My car is a small Peugeot so it’s no good when I am shopping at the cash & carry. I cannot thank Today’s and Dee Bee enough for this, my business is everything to me so this means a lot.”

Mr Mukesh Patel, The Candy Box, Gold Star Wholesale customer:

“I simply cannot believe that I’ve won £10K to spend with my wholesaler Gold Star. We’ve been using them for five years and the team are always very helpful – they even help me take stock to my car. I never thought that when I entered the Checkout Mania trade day draw that I would win. This generous prize is a huge help to my business – we will be spending it on stocking up on confectionary, drinks and groceries. We’d like to say a huge thank you to Gold Star and to the team at Today’s Group.”

Mrs Angela Stewart – Village News, Davidson cash & carry customer:4.000

“I really didn’t expect it when I got a call from Today’s Group to say that I’d won £5K to spend with my wholesaler Davidson Cash & Carry. Our business can tend to slow down a little around Christmas time as we are a small store and much of our business comes from the early morning work trade – people picking up a paper and a snack in the morning. This great prize will help our store to keep cash flow going when things are quieter around the Christmas period. Thanks so much to the team at Davidson – whom we’ve used for more than ten years – and the team at Today’s for putting on another fantastic promotion.”

IMG_0313Mr Kuhanathan, Lavi News Agent & Convenience Store, Elbrook customer:

“I’m delighted to have won £5K to spend at Ebrook Cash & Carry – I’ve never won anything in my whole life so it’s brilliant news. Especially right before Christmas. I’ll be using it to invest in stocking up our spirits range, which always fly’s off the shelf in December. We’ve been using Elbrook for fifteen years and we’re so happy with their service and range we don’t use any other wholesaler. Winning this has just made a great relationship even better.”
