A Margaret River Mitre 10 customer won a major prize in a national competition aimed specifically at tradespeople shopping at Mitre 10 hardware stores nationally.

The national competition was run throughout Mitre 10 Trade Centres offering participants the chance to win the grand prize of a new Mazda BT-50 vehicle, or one of 21 trailers filled with Makita, Passlode and Sutton tools, according to the Margaret River Mail.

Ben Lawrie of Caves Road Constructions won one of the fully stocked trailers, after submitting entries for every $500 he spent at the store, through his business.

“We are a small boutique construction company based out of Cowaramup and we work from Busselton, Yallingup and down to Augusta. We are building mainly architectural residential stuff, and some commercial.”

“The trailer is going to be really helpful… we might have to offload some of it to the apprentices. There’s a bit of jealousy going on. I think they are already eyeing off some of it,” Mr Lawrie said.

Margaret River Mitre 10 Store Manager, Paul Brown, said the team was excited to hear that a well-known, loyal customer had taken out the prize.

“It is great news for Ben and for the store, we are all very happy to have someone from this part of the world claim one of these fantastic prizes,” Mr Brown told the Margaret River Mail.
