Mississauga, Ontario  What began as a simple phone call requesting a quote from A.P. Reid Insurance, resulted yesterday with Adriana Thimi being awarded a brand new car. The Sobeys employee was presented with the keys to a 2016 BMW 4 Series as part of the Economical Select Sweepstakes at the Sobeys Ontario head office in Mississauga.

“I cannot find the words to describe how excited I am to have won this beautiful car. It’s like a dream come true,” said Adriana, a bakery manager at the Rosebury Square Sobeys Urban Fresh store in North York.

“My friends at work are so excited for me. About six or seven of them have switched to our group insurance plan through A.P. Reid and are all hoping to win something too!”

President & CEO of A.P. Reid Insurance, Jamie Reid was equally as ecstatic to award the brand new car to Adriana.

“We are incredibly delighted that our home and auto group insurance program gave Ms. Thimi the opportunity to win this vehicle. We introduced the Select Sweepstakes to Sobeys Inc. for the first time this year and the fact that one of their employees has already won is a testament to their incredible support for their group program,” said Jamie.

“At A.P. Reid, we are committed to exceeding expectations by providing the absolute best service. The select sweepstakes helps us to achieve this by pairing our exclusive rates, and superior service with an opportunity to win great prizes. ”

The Select Sweepstakes campaign is run in partnership between Economical Select, one of Canada’s leading providers of group car and home insurance, and 73 insurance brokers across Canada, including A.P. Reid Insurance Stores.

Adriana’s win is the final prize of the 2015 – 2016 sweepstakes campaign. However, the 2016 – 2017 campaign is now underway with a selection of six brand new cars, gas cards valued at $250 each, and numerous other prizes. Participating group members who call A.P. Reid to request a quote, or are currently under the home and auto group insurance program managed by A.P. Reid are eligible to win.

Employees and group members of Sobeys Inc., Safeway Credit Union, Commissionaires Nova Scotia, Investment Property Owners Association of Nova Scotia (IPOANS) and Hamilton District Apartment Association (HDAA) can be entered into the contest through AP Reid.

A.P. Reid is a pioneer in home and auto group insurance, with the launch of its first group program nearly 30 years ago. They’ve used the concept of group buying power to bring members and employees of leading organizations the most competitive rates, and superior home and auto insurance products on the market.
