Ashley Newton Wins A $100 Shopping Spree At Times Lihu‘e

Ashley and Hope Newton

Ashley Newton was pleasantly surprised to be last week’s Times Supermarket mystery shopper. She was even more surprised to find out how easy it is to win a $100 shopping spree.

The ‘Ele‘ele Elementary School third-grade teacher was shopping for groceries to make dinner for the week on Labor Day when she was randomly approached by a MidWeek Kaua‘i representative.

Even though she happened to be at the Lihu‘e store that Monday, Ashley typically shops at Times in ‘Ele‘ele, where her family resides.

“We go there all the time,” she said. Ashley, wife of Kevin, an accountant, with whom she has two daughters, Hope (6) and Lucy (4), likes to read MidWeek Kaua‘i for the advertisements.

“There are interesting stories about the people who live here, too,” she said.
