Colac teen Aeron Zabala has 2000 reasons to be satisfied with his decision to shop local and buy a protective mouthguard for the footy season.
Aaron bought a mouthguard at Colac Dental Practice during the Colac-wide Love Local Sale on Friday and Saturday, earning him entry into a draw for four $500 vouchers at participating Colac businesses.
He won, meaning his purchase did more than protect his smile.
The Love Local Sale, an initiative of the Colac Herald and MIXX FM, involved 26 businesses in Colac all offering specials during the two days.
Aeron shopped at KFC Colac to enter once, before heading to the dentist to prepare for his upcoming season playing football in the Under-18s at South Colac.
The Trinity College Year 10 student said he was shocked to win the major prize yesterday.
“I didn’t think I was going to win it!”
Aeron said he was yet to decide how to spend his winnings, but his favourite shop Sportspower might be one destination.
He said he loved playing basketball and football and was a regular at Sportspower.
