Meat gone in 50 seconds

Surrey man wins shopping spree for 50th-anniversary of Buy-Low Foods.

Jennifer Neufelt (above) follows her husband Vilmar, winner of a 50-second shopping spree at Buy-Low Foods in Guildford on Feb. 27 for the company’s 50th anniversary.

The couple bee-lined for the meat section, where Vilmar filled up three-quarters of his cart. (His wife said her second choice would have been the coffee section.)

While this store, at 14865 108 Ave., has only been there for a year, having replaced an IGA, the company opened its first store in Vancouver in 1966.

Shopping sprees and other prizes are being given at each store this season.

The company operates 32 corporate and franchise stores in B.C. under the banners Buy-Low Foods, Nesters Market, Shop ‘n Save, Buy & Save Foods and Budget Foods.

Behind the winners in the photo are store manager Kirk Flynn (left) and staff member Alexander McEwan.
