“We have noticed a change in shopper behaviour which is evolving at a rapid pace and understand the impact the pandemic had on consumer spending. As we navigate our way through these tough economic conditions, we hope our 51st birthday competition prizes bring some much-needed relief for those that enter. We couldn’t celebrate our biggest milestone (50 years) last year because of a lockdown, and we want to make it extra special this year.
