Double delight for local clubs

SHOPPERS have until Sunday to double the points for their chosen not-for-profit sporting club or community group when they buy their groceries at Supa IGA in Warwick.

The supermarket is allocating points based on transactions to selected clubs and groups and this week decided to double the reward, through use of the voucher above, which will appear until Saturday.

The points will convert to cash grants at the end of the initiative.

Last year Supa IGA ran a similar sponsorship for local schools.

Store manager Jason Franklin said the clubs program had been just as successful.

“There’s been a lot of good community reaction to it. We’ve had plenty of support and close to 100 clubs and charity organisations sign up,” he said.

“It’s great to have them on board, and to be able to get some money into their kitty.”

With the double reward on offer this week, Mr Franklin said he had noticed an increase in sales.

“The start of the week has been quite good – but whether or not that’s reflective of the double points offer, I couldn’t say for sure,” he said.

The double points offer finishes on Sunday, but Supa IGA will continue to sponsor local clubs and charities in their points program for another six months.
