SuperValu store manager Adrian Brady was delighted to hear that one his customers was waking up to good news this morning: “We’re a busy local shop here in Newmarket with lots of regular customers so it’s great to think that someone in the community has had a winning streak. We have around 40 staff members working in the shop so I know there will be great excitement around the place as word spreads. It will certainly be the most memorable bank holiday weekend for one of our customers, that’s for sure!”
