Otter Co-op shopper wins new Honda

Sixteen semi-finalists anxiously vied for the big prize in the Otter Co-op's great shopper contest, but everyone went home with a prize Saturday morning.

In the end, Christine Richardson was the grand prize winner of the shiny red new 2011 Honda Civic and Joanne Bonetti was second prize winner of a new flat screen TV.

When the draw came down to the last two finalists, Bonetti and Richardson each got to choose a key held by Co-op general manager Jack Nicholson.

Bonetti tried her key first but the Honda did not start.

Then Richardson, of Langley, tried hers and was moved to tears of joy and shrieks of delight from family members as the Civic's engine fired up.

The other 14 contestants won a variety of goods such as Canuck jerseys and a mountain bike.

The event capped off a 16-week campaign to promote shopping at the Otter Co-op's retail centre on 248 Street.
