ST. JACOBS, ON, Sept. 26 /CNW/ - This Fall, Home Hardware is giving away
$50,000 to help turn one lucky winner's kitchen into a divine cooking oasis
where food, entertaining and luxurious living can come together in one room.
The winner of the $50,000 Dream Kitchen Makeover Contest will be able to spend
the grand prize money on anything from decorating to renovating through
products, improvements or repairs.
"We are excited to be able to provide this contest to our loyal
customers," said Paul Straus, Vice President and CEO, Home Hardware Stores
Limited. "A grand prize of this size will allow the winner to enhance the most
popular room in their home with renovations, appliances and anything else it
takes to make their kitchen more comfortable and functional - with some help
from their friends at Home Hardware of course."
In addition to the Grand Prize of a $50,000 dream makeover, the contest
also includes second, third and fourth place prizes which include Cuisinart
Stand Mixers, Paderno Cookware Sets, and Royal Doulton Tableware Sets.
"The kitchen has become the heart of the household," said Mark Nykamp,
Kitchen Cabinetry & Flooring Product Manager, Home Hardware Stores Limited.
"When renovating, it can also significantly increase the value of a home."
With this in mind, Nykamp offers the latest trends in kitchen décor. "Warm
greys with brown undertones are the most popular colours for kitchens right
now and there is a growing shift towards using lots of glass and solid surface
countertops, providing a generally sleeker more contemporary look."
The $50,000 Dream Kitchen Makeover Contest will run across Canada
beginning September 27 and will close December 8, 2008. To enter, Canadians
are encouraged to submit a ballot by mail, in-store or online at
www.homehardware.ca between September 27 and December 8, 2008. One entrant
will be randomly selected as the Grand Prize winner in a draw taking place on
January 6, 2009. Ten additional contest participants will also be drawn and
awarded second place prizes of Cuisinart Stand Mixers, another 10 contest
participants will win Paderno Cookware Sets and an additional 20 entrants will
be awarded Royal Doulton Tableware Sets.
