More retailers than ever before decked their aisles in February with spectacular spud displays. Their motivation: The hope of winning their share of the $150,000 in cash and prizes awarded in the Idaho Potato Commission’s (IPC) Potato Lover’s Month (PLM) Retail Display Contest. Celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, the Contest is the IPC’s longest-running promotion and has proven to be more popular than ever before, garnering a record of 2,515 entries.
The Idaho Potato Commission (IPC) and Fresh Gourmet® announced the winner of one of their biggest and most successful promotions ever, the “Win Free Groceries for a Year Sweepstakes.” Maija Liepins, of Dublin, Ohio received $10,400 in gift cards to use at the grocery store of her choice. Liepins selected Meijer, a one-stop shopping center with over 195 stores in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and Kentucky.
Upscale grocery store chain, Hen House, celebrated Potato Lover’s Month (PLM) with a storewide “spudtacular” promotion that included culinary demos, giveaways and, of course, an abundant supply of Idaho® spuds.
