One day, 103 prizes, and over 10 thousand dollars worth was given away on Sunday, Sept. 18 as LAZER hosted the 2nd Pop-Up Shop at Merle Hay Mall.
Following the success of the 2021 edition, in which 103 limited-edition t-shirts were given away as part of the station’s 25th anniversary celebrations, the LAZER team made the 2022 edition bigger and better, with prizes ranging from a big-screen smart TV, to band-signed swag, concert tickets to Apple AirPods, air fryers to laptop computers, and more. One would be hard-pressed to find anyone without a smile on their face as they walked away with a prize of their own.
They began lining up at Noon on SATURDAY – and by 11 am Sunday morning, one hour to the start of this year’s Pop-Up Shop, all 103 wristbands had been distributed to the LAZER listeners that eagerly awaited their opportunity to grab a cool prize.
Once inside, each participant had the opportunity to pick any of the 103 numbered cards on our “big-board,” sandwiched in between two large display cases featuring the prizes. Morning hosts Heather and Wickett played game-show hosts on Sunday, grabbing each numbered card as they were called and announcing the corresponding prize for all to hear and celebrate.
Each listener had personal interactions with each of the LAZER crew, from Heather & Wickett to Suzi, who was part of the prize distribution team, to Andy Hall, who served as wristband distributor and “bouncer” at the front of the line, making sure those who waited the longest would get first crack at choosing a number and winning a prize.
Positive, face-to-face impressions all-around, as we begin planning for an even bigger event in 2023! A big thanks to all who came out and everyone that chipped in to help make this event a rousing success!
