MISSISSAUGA, ON – June 13 th , 2012 – easyhome Ltd. (TSX: EH), Canada’s largest merchandise leasing company, is proud to announce the winner of the easyhome Ltd. “Enter to Win $5,000” Contest. Local Grande Prairie resident Crystal Scott was presented with a cheque for $5,000 on June 11 at the Grande Prairie easyhome store by Errol Penny, Divisional VP for easyhome Ltd. in Western Canada.
The Grande Prairie easyhome store is located at Unit 108, 11030â€100 Street. The presentation took place at 3 p.m. on Monday, June 11.
“I’ve never won anything more than $100 on a lottery ticket. I work in the oil patch in a low end paying job and $5,000 will help a lot to keep the bills up. Maybe I can take a vacation this year,” says Crystal. “I was in making a payment on my easyhome account and I saw the sign about the contest. I asked Nancy (Store Manager of easyhome Grande Prairie) what it was about. I thought I would take a chance and give it a try. Apparently I had some pretty good luck that day.”
When asked what she would do with her winnings Crystal told Errol Penny that she wanted to take a trip to the Yukon. Crystal is an avid photographer and hopes to get a photo of the Northern Lights.
“I was tired of getting worn out, broken furniture and handâ€meâ€downs. At easyhome I can get nice furniture at reasonable prices. I take lots of pictures and I didn’t have anywhere to store my photos. So I went and got a laptop from easyhome to download them.” Crystal has been an easyhome customer for over a year.
“On behalf of easyhome Ltd. and its employees I want to congratulate Crystal as the winner of the easyhome Ltd. ‘Enter to Win $5,000’ Contest,” says David Ingram, easyhome’s President and Chief Executive Officer.
