Dean Olyinuk, Askew’s CEO congratulates Mr. and Mrs. Pat Timpany, who were the winners of the 2014 Rotary/Askew’s Foods Shopping Spree contest. They are flanked by Rotarian Dan Hudson, who acted as the couple’s runner for the three-minute spree, and Steve Reid, downtown store manager. Hudson managed to fill the cart with a total of $1,595 in merchandise, including $600 in meat and several hundred dollars worth of cheese on Saturday morning before the store opened. The couple was able to give Hudson some ideas for items they particularly wanted and Hudson had 30 seconds in each department of the store to grab items.
