McCutcheons claim $500

McMynn's Family Foods in Midway was happy to give away $500 in groceries to the Pat & Muffy McCutcheon from Rock Creek.

Pat McCutcheon accepts a $500 cheque from McMynn’s Family Foods store manager Robin Perrun.

Rock Creek residents Pat and Muffy McCutcheon were the winners of a $500 Family Foods gift card at McMynn’s Family Foods in Midway. The in-store draw precedes the Family Foods grand prize draw for free groceries for a year that will take place on Oct. 26. The McCutcheons’ winning ticket now goes back in the hopper with all of the other entries for a chance to win the big prize.

Muffy said the only time they’ve ever won in the past was in a recent draw at the same store that gifted them a one-cup coffee maker.

The couple made immediate use of the $500 gift card by wheeling a shopping cart around the store and tossing in a few items, including some prime rib.

MyMynn’s grocery store in Midway switched to Family Foods as their wholesale supplier in May of this year. Owner Doug McMynn says they are very happy with the changeover and from the feedback they’ve heard so far their customers are as well.

Family Foods, a western Canadian food distributor, regularly runs promotions – including an annual contest that benefits a community group in a area served by a Family Foods store.

McMynn said he’s looking forward to seeing the Boundary winning one of those some day in the future.
