Leah Williams, who lives with her husband Shayne and their two children a short drive from Pakuranga Plaza, is the winner of a brand new Chery J11 SUV. The vehicle comes courtesy of Andrew Simms Botany, which put up the prize for the latest competi- tion draw at the shopping centre. For every $50 spent, Plaza cus- tomers got an entry into the draw. Lucky winner Mrs Williams, a regular at the Plaza, says she’s excited to have won the competi- tion and her colour choice for the new car is black. “We live five minutes down the road so it’s very convenient. “I often call in a few times a week for groceries. “There are lovely shops and parking is convenient.” Meantime, Andrew Simms Bot- any is offering a special deal to people who entered the draw but missed out on winning the car, where no payments on a new car will be required for the first six months of ownership. KEYS TO THE CAR: Above right, Matthew Wales, of Andrew Simms Botany, left, congratulates Leah Williams, who won Pakuranga Plaza’s competition draw for a new Chery; above left, the slick new-model Chery on parade at the Plaza.
