Following the announcement of Cash Food Coupon to give back to the underprivileged, PARKnSHOP is delighted to roll out the “Cheer Up! Smile & Win Lucky Draw” (the Luck Draw) today, as part of the plan to rebate to the general public in the second tranche of Employment Support Scheme (ESS), which has been accepted by the government. As per government’s request, supermarket chains should give back to the customers without conditions, and it shouldn’t be bundled with any promotional or membership privileges so PARKnSHOP will roll out the Lucky Draw. Without any purchase required, the general public can enter the lucky draw and stand a chance to win HK$100 supermarket vouchers by providing the month and date of birth* and a valid Hong Kong mobile phone number through online or hotline registration from 12 to 18 October 2020, participant name and Hong Kong Identity Card number are not required. To bring more joy to Hong Kong people, on top of the committed $32 million cash vouchers, PARKnSHOP will add 10 Grand Prizes of “1-Minute Free Shopping Spree” and 3,000 “Exclusive-for-You” Product Sets, in addition to the ESS proposal on giving back to customers. Combining the supermarket cash vouchers that will be given out to 320,000 winners, the total value of the lucky draw prizes is over HK$32 Million!
PARKnSHOP has already delivered the Cash Food Coupons to 27 NGO Partners today and all food coupons valued at over HK$40.9 million will be distributed to 204,500 beneficiaries starting from later this week till end-October, in a bid to help the underprivileged including the low-income families, elderly and disabled persons.
