On Wednesday, Carolyn Uchiyama was at Tamura’s in Wahiawa to deliver flowers from her mom’s garden, when she decided to pick up some groceries for dinner. As she made her purchase at 11 a.m., MidWeek‘s representative approached Carolyn with a simple question. She answered correctly and instantly won a $150 Tamura’s shopping spree.

“I love Tamura’s because they have unusual ingredients, like a Chinese preserved turnip that I was looking for and could not find but here,” said this week’s Mystery Shopper, a retired elementary schoolteacher. “Also, we live in Wahiawa, so it is convenient to come here.”

Carolyn was born and raised in Wahiawa, and graduated from Leilehua High School in 1966. She has two grown sons, and enjoys reading and learning to use the Microsoft Surface computer she got from her son for Christmas. She also likes to read MidWeek.

“The first thing I do is read Ron Nagasawa’s column,” she said. “Then the MidWeek Poll and the cover story.”
