Stripes Celebrates 'Cinco de Monkey'
CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Stripes Convenience Stores launched Cinco de Monkey to mark this year's Cinco de Mayo holiday.
The Cinco de Monkey promotion asks Stripes customers to comment and share their Cinco de Mayo celebrations on Facebook for a chance to win up to $1,500 in Stripes gift cards. Winners will be selected randomly and announced through the retailer's Facebook page. Each winner will win the daily “Cinco de Monkey” contest prize.
The giveaway kicked off May 1 and will run through May 5.
Stripes' proprietary frozen drink character, Slush Monkey, has been a key part of its Facebook page giveaways and contests since it made its debut on the Stripes Facebook page in time for last year's Cinco de Mayo celebration.
Stripes customers should expect Slush Monkey to give away prizes and goodies from Stripes as it makes its appearances on the company's social media accounts.
The Corpus Christi-based company operates more than 675 convenience stores in Texas, New Mexico and Oklahoma, more than 600 under the Stripes banner and 44 under the Sac-N-Pac banner. It also offers restaurant service in more than 440 stores, primarily under the proprietary Laredo Taco Co. brand.
