TYLER, Texas — Brookshire Grocery Co.  here on Wednesday is launching a sweepstakes promotion in which it is giving away cruises, gift cards and 12 new 2011 Ford Mustangs.
The “You Save, You Win: Cruises, Cars, and Cash” promotion is tied to the chain’s Thank You Cards loyalty program. Customers receive one chance to win a cruise or a car for each Thank You Card transaction from July 13 through Oct. 4. Eight customers from each store will win a cruise for two, and two customers from each store will win a $100 Brookshire’s gift card during each week of the promotion.

“It’s quite a prize package and should create much excitement for our customers and stores,” said Rick Ellis, senior vice president-chief marketing officer for Brookshire’s. Last year the chain gave away a 2010 Camaro 2SS as part of promotion tied its Food Club private label.
