Traverse City Woman Wins $500 Meijer Shopping Spree

For a northern Michigan woman, today’s trip to Meijer was unlike any other she’s had before.

That’s because the store gave Traverse City’s Katie Wells a whopping $500 to spend on “Falls Creek” clothing.

Wells was chosen from more than 60,000 people who entered a contest on Facebook to win the shopping spree.

She says she certainly didn’t expect to win, and when she was told that she won, she thought it was a hoax.

“It’s a really nice surprise to do, I usually stick to the jeans and the t-shirt, so to get something new, fun, spring colors, it’s going to be awesome,” Wells explained.

Wells says she has never spent this much money on clothes, so it’s exciting to be able to treat herself.
