From December 1 up to December 22 last year, persons who made purchases at Choice Meats on Bay Street were entered in a raffle. The raffle was drawn on Friday, January 10 and saw Idris Baptiste taking the first prize, Latonya Hazell taking second place and Dafadin Bowens coming in third.

Baptiste took home a Nokia Lumia 520 smart-phone from Digicel and six months free shopping at Choice Meats, up to $50 a month.

Hazell won herself a DL 700 smart-phone from Digicel and three months free shopping at Choice Meats, up to $35 a month, while Bowens won a Nokia 210 smart-phone from Digicel and three months free shopping at Choice Meats, up to $20 a month.

Said first place winner Baptiste, “It’s a very good place to shop in regards to the items they offer. I have been a customer since inception and the service and the availability of items are great. The location is also great and the prices are affordable and competitive”.

Hazell, a fifth form student of the Girls’ High School (GHS), said that when she entered the raffle she wasn’t expecting to win, “so this is a shock and I am happy.”  

“Somebody stole my last phone so this is good”, said Hazell, while pointing out, “the prices at Choice Meats are good.”  

Manager at Choice Meats Sonia Polius said that the draw was just a way of giving back to her customers.

“Without the customers the business cannot thrive, so it is very important that we do things like this to reward customers,” said Polius.

Choice Meats is also a contributor to the flood relief effort, as on December 27, 2013 and again on December 30, 2013, staff members journeyed to Buccament and South Rivers respectively, where they handed out meat, meat products and water to flood victims.

Choice Meats also donates four cases of chicken to the Salvation Army on a monthly basis. That donation aids in the Salvation Army’s soup kitchen project.

“We just want to make sure that we do our best to help the less fortunate”, said Polius.
