Bentley Select AG Foods store owners Henry and Judy Kim and their staff were excited when they were notified that the Alberta winner of a brand new 2009 Dodge Journey was from their store. Carrie Butcher was even more excited when the local grocery store phoned her July 28 to say she would be receiving her major prize from the one month long Wheel Into Summer promotion very soon.

There are only three big winners each year in the random draw from UPC codes entered in the contest – one each in B. C., Alberta and Saskatchewan.

“I won a barbecue before, I think in the same promotion, and thought that was a good prize, but you can’t beat this!”, Butcher said as she happily showed off some of the many features of her new vehicle that will be greatly enjoyed by her family, including husband Rory and their two small children.

Each store also gives away an in-store prize. This year a Nintendo Wii and Wii Fit were won by Dwayne Johnson of Bentley.
