The third edition of the annual Acacia Mall Christmas Bonanza Campaign ended today afternoon Friday 23rd December 2016 with a prize giving ceremony involving lucky shoppers and the mall management.
The campaign, which has been going on for a month, started on Saturday 26th November 2016 with the intention of rewarding Acacia Mall loyal customers.
“The main campaign objective, just like over the years, was to simply reward our loyal customers with daily prizes and grand prizes which have been handed over today” said Paul Mwirigi, Knight Frank Head of Marketing, the managers of Acacia Mall.
Since its inception on February 14th in 2014 Acacia Mall has been known as Kampala’s ultimate lifestyle destination with over sixty-six (66) tenants offering various products and services that cater for a range of middle and upper class clients drawn from different age groups.
“In the spirit of giving we gave our more than three hundred (300) daily and weekly prizes. Together, with the grand prizes, these were worth over forty million (40,000,000) Ugandan shillings” said Mr. Farooq Khan, the Acacia Mall Manager.
Some of the key sponsors of the campaign included Round Bob, DSTV, Satguru as well as key Acacia Mall tenants. Rose Kahika, a resident of Bukoto was the ultimate winner of shopping worth one million, five hundred thousand (1,500,000) Ugandan shillings.
“I want to thank Acacia Mall for upholding integrity and ethics in this promotion, the way they picked out the winners was extra-ordinary with random children in the mall being asked to pick out the winners says a lot about the promotion and transparency involved” said Rose Kahika. “This is the best prize one can give to a lady – I am going to shop with this money that I have won” she ended.
Other winners included Chandan Kumar (UGX 1,000,000 worth of shopping) and Yogesh Acharya (two night’s getaway to the Budongo Eco Lodge courtesy of Round Bob).
“We are over whelmed with the support that we received during this promotion. We had over one thousand (1,000) participants who took part during the campaign. We appreciate all our sponsors and faithful customers that made this happen” said Paul Mwirigi, Knight Frank’s Head of marketing.
