Shoppers at the Achimota Retail Centre have been enjoying a field day as many of them are being reimbursed the full value of their shopping in vouchers as part of the mall’s New Year customer reward promotion.
The month-long ‘Pay Your Bills’ promo started on January 2 and has become popular among the centre’s patrons as refunds of up to Gh¢1,000 or the equivalent of the value of one’s shopping, are awarded in vouchers to lucky shoppers whose receipts are randomly picked in a daily draw.
A statement from the mall’s management said shoppers simply have to write their names and contact details on the back of their till slips and drop them into entry boxes located at vantage points at the Shopping centre.
The till slips are valid for the day of issue, while the corresponding vouchers won by any shopper after the draw will have to be redeemed in any of the centre’s stores on the same day.
“With barely ten days to the end of the promo (January 31), shoppers are scrambling for a chance to win vouchers and most are ensuring that every receipt or till slip they get for any purchase at the centre goes straight into one of the six promo boxes on display,” it said.
The statement also quoted Mall Manager George Boakye Sarpong as saying “This is an interesting customer reward promo and patrons of Achimota have had a lot of fun these past couple of weeks; the most exciting thing about the ‘Pay Your Bills’ promotion is the fact that we literally get to pay off our customers’ shopping bills and thereby ease off some of the looming financial stress typical of the post-festive month ofJanuary.”
Achimota Retail Centre is located at Dome, near the St John’s Grammar School on the Accra-Nsawam Highway and has brought convenient one-stop shopping to a horde of communities in the southeastern part of Accra, including Tantra Hills, Ofankor, Ashongman Estates, Kwabenya and Achimota.
The ‘Pay Your Bill’ promo ends on January 31.
