MARÍA José Guerrero, a 51-year-old housekeeper, will receive €10,000 on Wednesday to spend in ten hours. She was the winner of the contest organized by the Association of Merchants and Entrepreneurs of Torremolinos.

The rules of the prize are that winners can purchase whatever they want in the associated establishments, up to a limit of €500 per visit, within ten hours and must spread their purchases between the four commercial sectors of the municipality: El Bajondillo, Playamar and Los Alamos, Calvario, Centro and La Carihuela, Montemar and El Pinillo.

María José has spent several days visiting Torremolinos stores to plan her route. The first thing he wants to do is go to a travel agency to buy a ticket to Beijing, where her son would like to work. “I also need things for the house, such as a mattress and curtains, and I want to give my brother a microwave, as his is broken,” she said.

The draw, called ‘Kings for a day’, is sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce of Malaga and has the collaboration of Torremolinos and associated establishments.
