IT WAS as simple as getting his script at Moama Pharmacy for Allan Gannon.
That script won him $1000 as part of the Shop Local and Win promotion run by Forty Winks Echuca and the Riverine Herald.
A surprised Allan said he was encouraged to pop his name in the draw when he filled his usual script.
‘‘I just did what I was told and now I have $1000 to spend,’’ he said.
‘‘It is great to shop local and this promotion is great.’’
Although he has strict instructions from his wife as to where he can spend it, Alan has a few other ideas.
‘‘My wife said we will have to save it ... but I do need new tyres,’’ he said.
The shop local promotion is in its third week and involves 44 businesses across Echuca-Moama.
The week three winners will be announced in the Riv next week.
