A RECENT stroke of good luck for Pemulway's Rohit Moopnar may have those who are superstitious questioning their condition.
Last week it was their supposedly "unlucky" number, 13, which proved to be the one on the key that opened the door to a new Suzuki Swift, the major prize in a Fairfield Forum Shopping Centre competition.
Mr Moopnar and 31 others were selected from a prize barrel of more than 2000 entries to receive a golden ticket, which in turn entitled them to select a lucky key and an attempt at unlocking the car door.
To enter the competition, shoppers had to spend $30 or more in the centre's specialty retail stores or $70 or more at major retail outlets Coles, Kmart and Trade Secret.
Mr Moopnar spent $37 at the Forum newsagency.
The major draw took place at the centre on Saturday, June 28, in front of a large crowd.
As well as the car, provided by Peter Warren Suzuki, Warwick Farm, Mr Moopnar's prize included 12 months' registration, third party compulsory insurance, on-road costs and stamp duty — a total of more than $19,000.
The "Win a Brand New Suzuki Swift" promotion was run in conjunction with the recent relaunch of the Forum's upgraded car park.
Centre manager Jocelyn Marr said she was thrilled to be able to reward her loyal customers.
"On a daily basis we are proud to see the familiar faces of repeat shoppers returning to Fairfield Forum for their shopping needs," she said.
"The support that we have received from loyal customers is outstanding and it was felt that a thank you was in order to show our level of appreciation."
