LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) - Jim Schaller is the lucky winner of the Menards August 2021 Sweepstakes Promotion. The prize is a brand new 2021 Jeep Cherokee, valued at nearly $35,000.
On Friday morning, Schaller and his wife came to pick up their prize. An employee at Menards in La Crosse greeted Schaller in front of the store and handed him the keys to his new vehicle.
Jim said every time he visits Menards, he stops at the kiosk and enters to win the big prize.
"Every time I'm at Menards I sign up for the contest," Schaller said. "Last month we put new siding on our house and I was here about every single day last month."
Assistant General Manager at Menards in La Crosse, Kevin Clauer, said a prize like this hasn't been won in over 20 years in the area.
"I was super excited," Clauer said. "Menards wants to be super involved in the community and to see that somebody local won is great news for us."
Clauer said it is free to enter these contests when visiting a Menards location. Prizes range from cash prizes to new vehicles.
