Looking for love this Valentine’s Day? Leave the phone on airplane mode and peruse the isles at PAK’nSAVE Mill Street for more than your dinner ingredients this Valentine’s Day weekend.
With a student population of more than 40,000, Hamilton is home to many young people who'll be looking for a special someone this Valentine’s Day.
“Students are a massive part of our local community, and this Valentine’s Day, we want to join in on the fun,” said Hamish Walton, owner operator of PAK’nSAVE Mill Street. “We like to think of ourselves as the only night club that helps you save money. So if you’re looking for love, turn off Tinder and try the grocery isle. When you come in to do your shop this weekend, simply place a single banana in your trolley to show you are ready to mingle.”
“Keep your eyes peeled for another shopper with a single banana and if you're unsure what to say, check out our supermarket pick-up line competition on Facebook - just think of the pastabilities!"
“We'd like to ask our shoppers to keep this a family friendly event – it takes two to mango and unfortunately sometimes, a banana is nothing more than a banana. And please, only grab buns from the bakery department.”
Supermarkets have been a trusted stomping ground for love-seeking singles for decades, by using bananas to signify you’re single and ready to mingle dates back to the 1990s. “We're all about our customers, so we hope they have great fun. And if you find love, Stickman would love to officiate your wedding."
