BASSETERRE, ST. KITTS – Ms. Hope L. Merchant of Gingerland, Nevis is the second winner in the St. Kitts Nevis Anguilla Trading and Development Company Limited (TDC) $50K Mega Raffle.
The longstanding TDC shopper was presented with her winnings at the official presentation on Friday, September 8, 2023, at the TDC Home and Building Depot at Pinney’s Industrial Estate, by Mr. Colin Freeman, the General Manager, who expressed his satisfaction that Ms. Merchant, a Nevisian, emerged the winner from amongst some 28,000 entries.
“This win will impact our sales tremendously, I am sure. It is good to see that the Nevisian public has a chance of winning up to $50,000.00. TDC has significant patronage in Nevis. In fact, Ms. Merchant bought her first vehicle, a Mitsubishi Lancer, from TDC.”
Ms. Merchant took the opportunity to emphasize that it was not luck in winning, but a blessing and encouraged others to purchase their goods at TDC.
“Come to TDC and shop; nice people are here. They will take care of you; they will take care of me. This raffle alone is taking care of their customers,” says the elated winner.
