Jewellery retailer Mococo marked its 10th birthday by giving away thousands of pounds worth of prizes.
As part of the 10 year anniversary, Mococo, established in the North West, gave away a prize pot of more than £13,000 to mark its milestone birthday.
More than 21,000 entrants participated in the prize draw through My Mococo - the independent and family-run retailer’s loyalty scheme.
Six finalists were invited to a special announcement event held at the brand’s flagship Chester store where Sandra Lewis from Chester was announced as the winner.
She received £5,000 to spend on luxury jewellery from affordable designer brands including Pandora, ChloBo, Thomas Sabo, Clogau, Swarovski, Michael Kors, Shaun Leane alongside Mococo’s own collection of jewellery designed by Mococo founder, Maureen Hooson.
The remaining finalists all received a £1,000 gift card to spend in store.
Winner Sandra said she did not believe it was real to begin with.
“I was told I was a finalist and so I knew I’d won at least £1,000 to spend, but I just didn’t think it could be true, and so I didn’t mention it to my family,” she said.
“To then win the star prize was incredible and left me speechless.
“We have been coming to Mococo to add to our jewellery collection since my Dad passed away.
“Every anniversary, birthday or special occasion in his memory, we like to buy a charm for our bracelets to signify that moment and remember him by.
“It is the most special and important thing that I own.”
Managing director and founder of Mococo, Maureen Hooson, said: “We started Mococo with just £250 and a big dream.
“To get here today, 10 years later, looking around at our beautiful stores, incredible team and most importantly, our loyal and valued customers, it really is a very emotional day for our family-run business.
“I’m so pleased for Sandra, she is such a deserving winner.”
Managing director, Lee Hooson, said: “We wanted to celebrate our landmark birthday with those very people who have helped us get here - our valued customers.
“Without their support, we are nothing.
“On our special anniversary of a decade in business, we extend our sincere thanks to all those who have supported Mococo over the years.”
Mococo will open a new store in Golden Square Shopping Centre in Warrington later this month.
