Jack's Castle Bromwich looking to surprise shoppers on Blue Monday to 'lighten the mood'

A SUPERMARKET in Castle Bromwich will be dishing out spot prizes to lucky customers to cheer them up on ‘Blue Monday’ tomorrow.

Jack’s on Timberley Lane will be surprising shoppers and lifting their winter blues as they collect their essentials.

Among the prizes will be bunches of flowers, boxes of chocolates and even a bottle of prosecco.

‘Blue Monday’ is billed as the ‘most depressing day of the year’ because of the weather conditions, debt level (from spending during the festive season), time elapsed after Christmas and time taken to break new year’s resolutions. It is also said people have low motivation levels at this time of year.

Laura Cerrone, store manager at Jack’s Castle Bromwich, said: “We hope our surprise prizes will delight Castle Bromwich shoppers this Blue Monday.

“We love interacting with the local community and hope that we can bring a smile to people’s faces, lifting those January blues just a little bit!”

Winners will be randomly selected by store colleagues throughout the duration of the store’s opening hours.

Winners will be provided with their prize on the day and products are chosen at random.

Jack’s Castle Bromwich opens at 8am tomorrow.
