A popular supermarket is set to surprise some lucky shoppers by handing out prizes to and help banish those January blues.

The third Monday of January, known as Blue Monday, is often described as the most depressing of the year.

But this year Jack's Supermarket in Middlewich is hoping to bring some positivity to the day with a special prize giveaway.

So for those visiting the Wheelock Street store this coming Monday (January 17), there will be a chance of winning a gift to lift their spirits.

Winners will be selected randomly by staff throughout the day and will be provided with their gift – selected at random – before they leave.

Prizes can range from things such as a bunch of flowers, box of chocolates or even a bottle of prosecco in a bid to help improve shoppers’ mood on what is said to be the most depressing day of the year.

Darren Preston, store manager at Jack’s Middlewich, said: “We hope our surprise prizes will delight Middlewich shoppers this Blue Monday.

"We love interacting with the local community and hope that we can bring a smile to people’s faces, lifting those January blues just a little bit.”

The shop is open from 8am on Monday..
