On August 4, the Mollapara village youth purchased an 11 CFT Walton brand refrigerator at Tk 22,800 under the local brand’s prevailing offer titled ‘Who will be today’s millionaire’ from M R Electronics, a sub-dealer of Laz Enterprise at Hat Ramchandrapur Bazar in the district.
Then, Sakib registered the fridge under the nationwide ongoing ‘Walton Digital Campaign Season 4.’
Sakib immediately received a message from Walton with the notification of getting Tk 10 lakh after taking part in the digital registration process of the domestic company.
On Sunday (Sept 14), the Walton authorities handed over the cheque for Tk 10 lakh at a programme held in front of the M R Electronics in the area.
The colorful function was attended, among others, by Hat Ramchandrapur Degree College Vic-Principal Rafikul Islam, MR Electronics’ Proprietor Mukul Hossain, Proprietor of Laz Enterprise Shafiul Azam Babu and Walton’s Rajshahi Zone Area Manager Fazle Rabbi Siddiqi.
Sakib got himself emotional after receiving Tk 10 lakh from Walton. He said he was only able to study till the eighth grade due to lack of money. His journey for family started from childhood. The family comprises of parents, wife and one son.
Earlier, he used a Walton branded mobile phone. He saw the Walton products are affordable with lower prices in the market. As a result, he chose to purchase a Walton refrigerator with his hard earned money.
Expressing his gratitude to Walton, Shakib said, ‘Besides my limited land, I also cultivate others' land with paying money in cash. Now, I’m the millionaire! Walton refrigerator gave me a fortune. I'll start a business with this money. I'll also donate some money to a mosque at our village as well.'
Vice-Principal Rafikul Islam said, ‘Walton has brought a revolution in Bangladesh in manufacturing the electronics products here. Walton holds top position in the country’s refrigerator market now. Many people are being employed because of them. With Walton coming forward in this sector, our foreign reliance on these products has also decreased remarkably. I am also proud to be a Walton product customer.’
Meanwhile, Walton is making customers’ database with the aim at providing best after sales services swiftly through online. To encourage the customers’ participation in the campaign, Walton has declared the offer titled ‘Who will be today’s millionaire’.
Customers can get Tk 1 million (10 lakh), Tk 1 lakh, free appliances of Walton or sure cash vouchers of different values after registering Walton refrigerators and freezers after the purchase from any outlet across the country under the offer. The offer will be prevailed till September 30, 2019.
