Williamsville, NY – Amid concerns in the world right now about COVID-19, Tops Friendly Markets is still making sure people’s baskets are filled with their essentials including with great prizes like Monopoly wins! Recently, Tops Friendly Markets presented Leilani B. of Warren, PA and Freedom, NY resident, LuAnn P. each with a $20,000 shopping spree! They are the second and third customers respectively to win one of twenty $20,000 guaranteed shopping sprees being given away during the Tops Monopoly Rip It and Win It game! Leilani indicated that her initial reaction was “like a kid in a candy store.” “I asked my husband did we actually win? We had just left, turned around immediately and went back to our store” located at 74 Market Street in Warren, PA. She said that it was perfect timing, “My vehicle had over 200,000 miles on it so this will go toward purchasing a new vehicle – a life changer!” She has played the Monopoly game for the last 10 years, and has won coupons and free items, but “this definitely is the right prize for my family at the right time as we rely on our vehicle.” When her daughter came home later that evening, she showed her the ticket and she was also in disbelief. However, after receiving verification that her ticket was valid, word started getting out to her family that she was a big winner “and everyone was thrilled.” LuAnn stated that she was initially in denial and she couldn’t believe what she read when she opened the ticket even though it said Instant Winner - $20,000 Shopping Spree. “In the past, I would give any tickets I received to my co-workers as they really look forward to the game. This time however I kept the three tickets I received from my last shopping trip and opened them on my day off while preparing dinner. I was both shocked and speechless,” said LuAnn. Upon getting her voice back, she called her husband to tell him that she thinks they won the grand prize. After he and their daughter arrived home, it started to sink in so they went to their Tops store located at 658 W. Main Street in Arcade and submitted their claim where it was validated several days later. “I am very faith based so I know my faith will help me in the decision making process of how to use the Tops gift cards,” said Pierce. “There are several organizations that we will support and what a great way to assist them with food especially during this difficult time.” Be sure to get your Rip It and Win It tickets at any Tops Friendly Markets location Now – May 23, 2020 (or while tickets last) during Tops Rip it and Win It Game.
