Rick Callejo Wins A $100 Kmart Shopping Spree

winnerRick Callejo was browsing through barbecue items at Kmart last week when he was approached randomly by a MidWeek Kaua’i representative, who asked him a very simple question. Since his answer was accurate, the Kapa’a High School graduate won a $100 gift certificate to the Lihu’e store.

“Next week we’re having a family gathering at Lydgate,” he said, explaining why he was perusing the outdoor living section of Kmart.

Rick is “semi-retired.” His wife, Christine, with whom he has two adult children, works at Aston Beach Hotel.

“Some products are readily available here, like groceries, clothes and electronics, that other places don’t have,” Rick said of Kmart. “That’s why we’re regulars here.”

The advertisements in MidWeek Kaua’i are valuable to Rick, as well, because he likes to look for specials by stores such as Kmart.

“Some of the stories are interesting, too,” he said.
