DSF last day rush: Raffle coupons out of stock

By VM Sathish

As the Dubai Shopping Festival draws to a close today [Sunday, February 2, 2014], Enoc,  Eppco petrol stations have run out Infinti Raffle coupons.

As the month-long fest comes to a close, there has been overwhelming response from the public to try their luck at winning the jackpot.

So much so, the organisers have introduced two more series of the Dh200 coupon for the last day. The total sale has hit 1,75000 raffle coupons.

Some people have bought bundles of 25 coupons to try their luck in taking home Dh100,000 and two Infiniti cars. While some others were seen sharing the cost.

A senior official at Enoc said, “The original plan was to have a raffle draw every day of DSF and each day’s draw from 5,000 raffle coupons sold through selected Enoc and Eppco petrol stations; Global Village; shopping malls etc. Normally there is an extra raffle draw  on the last day of the festival, but this year, two more series have been introduced due to the increased demand for coupons from customers.” 

A sales staff at Eppco said, “Since yesterday we have been getting many customers. We feel sorry to turn them back.”

“We don’t have any more Infiniti Raffle coupon sales because there is no stock. Even if  another series is introduced, that too will be sold out within no time,” said manager of an Eppco station.

Meanwhile, an official from the Customer Care Center of Dubai Shopping Festival, said, “ I cannot confirm whether all the stocks of Infiniti Raffle coupons are over, but on the last day of the festival two more series are added. The response has been tremendous, but I am not sure whether the tickets will be available anywhere in Dubai.”

The last three series of additional coupons – of 5,000 each - were distributed initially at Global Village and later to convenient stores.
