PEP stores Malawi have introduced a chitenje designing competition worth MK500, 000.
The competition is open to all PEP customers across the country with the requirement of filling out entry forms with their contact details before the closing date on May 20,2017.
On their official facebook page called PEP stores Malawi, they have indicated that the competition is one way of engaging their customers in the designing of the chitenje’s, the winning design will be printed and sold in pep stores across the country.
“Entry forms are available at any PEP stores, draw your chitenje on the entry form and drop the form in the official boxes at our retail stores,” reads part of a post on their facebook page.
PEP operates more than 2000 retail stores in Southern Africa and employs more than 17,000 people with three distribution centres in Southern Africa, as well as 13 transport hubs.
One of PEP’s valued customers Cecilia Mwale who said she usually shops at Lilongwe shopping mall PEP said the competition is one way of having fun while trying to grab the MK500, 000.
“This competition is entertaining for the whole family because it involves drawing even young children to help their parents in designing a winning print of the Chitenje,” Mwale said.
Another PEP customer Justin Chilenje quashed the competition saying that there should have been second place and even third place to ensure that not only one winner takes it all but also other customers to have a taste of the chunk of money.
He added that there are more than 50 PEP stores across the country and many people are expressing their interest to enter the competition so having one winner is not fair to the other customers who will enter the completion.
The competition will run from April 28 to May 20, entries received after the competition term will not be considered.
