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 Ulster, PA resident, Richard G. with his $20,000 2nd Chance Sweepstakes shopping spree! Upon the games conclusion when all tickets were distributed, game organizers conducted a random drawing among nearly one million eligible, second chance entries that were mailed in for the contest. The lucky winner, Richard G, while a little skeptical at first when he received a call advising him that he won, said that “we couldn’t be happier and this is the biggest prize we’ve ever won. It’s started to sink in more and more over the last week and especially now that we have the gift cards in hand to do some shopping,” said Richard. Richard and his wife have been playing the game for 11 years, but have never won more than coupons and some instant win prizes. “I have been doing more of the shopping lately and decided to send in about six entries never thinking that we would win, but was pleasantly surprised when we were first contacted,” added Richard. A big fan of the Penn State Nittany Lions and NASCAR, he stated that he might be looking for some merchandise in store. Additionally, “we hope to have a nice, family picnic on us when the time is appropriate.” Shoppers instantly won $20,000 shopping sprees, Tops gift cards, gas points, free food and more! Thanks to many key product vendor sponsors, these savings were above and beyond the everyday great values and we’re excited to pass these offers along to customers. Tops Monopoly Rip It and Win It allowed customers to play every time they checked-out at a Tops Friendly Markets location using their Tops BonusPlus® card. Each purchase transaction received one game ticket and customers also received a game ticket for each participating vendor product purchased.
