Pick n Pay's surprise clothing dash leaves local shopper smiling all the way to the bank


Pick n Pay - Jun 26th, 14:42

Whatever clothing you can put on in 52 seconds is free. This was the challenge put to Arisha Soodhin yesterday, 25 June 2019, when she was shopping with her mom in the Pick n Pay Pavilion Clothing Store in Westville, KwaZulu-Natal.  

In the end, she managed to walk away with over R4000's worth of clothing.

Randomly selected and approached in store as one of Pick n Pay’s surprise birthday winners, Soodhin was challenged to grab any clothing she wanted and to put it on. Whatever she had after 52 seconds was hers to keep.

It was 52 years ago, back in 1967, when consumer champion Raymond Ackerman purchased three small Pick n Pay stores. To celebrate Pick n Pay’s 52nd birthday, customers will be surprised across the country with daily surprises over the next six weeks.

Other lucky shoppers who were surprised this week include Beualah Machiri from Cape Town. Shopping at Pick n Pay MontClare in Claremont, she won a TymeBank account loaded with R10 000. Pick n Pay Gardens customer Thozama Koli won 10x what she had in her trolley.

There are many more epic birthday surprises to come every day until 4 August 2019, including more fun challenges, ‘make-overs’ and on the spot prizes and hampers.
