RICHMOND, Va. -- GPM Investments LLC, operator of Fas Mart and Shore Stop convenience store chains, awarded Fas Mart customer John Graham one of two $10,000 grand prizes in the company's Sip, Scratch & Win Instant Win Game.
The game, which runs through July 31, allows customers to purchase a coffee or fountain drink and automatically receive a scratch and win card. Instant win prizes include free amusement park tickets, free lottery tickets, free cups of coffee, free 20-ounce Pepsi Next or Dr Pepper 10 beverages, and discounts on Valero gasoline. It is still possible to win one more $10,000 grand prize.
Graham, a 65-year-old regular customer at Fas Mart, won the first grand prize on his second visit to the Montpelier, Va., store in one day. His winning ticket came on one of the coffee cups he and his wife purchased. The win came at an ideal time for the Grahams, who recently gave $10,000 to a family member who had been in an accident, according to GPM.
"After hearing their story, I was even more excited that Mr. Graham and his wife had won the cash prize," said GPM Investments CEO Arie Kotler. "We are grateful for their loyalty to Fas Mart." Kotler added, "There is nothing more satisfying than giving out prizes like this to our valued customers. It is a great way to thank all our customers for their ongoing commitment to our brand."
GPM Investments operates more than 213 c-stores and supplies over 115 independent dealers in Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, Connecticut, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Tennessee.
