Christel Lleces Wins A $150 Shopping Spree At Kmart


Last Thursday, Christel Lleces wanted to help a friend prepare for the approaching storms, so she went shopping at Kmart in Kapolei. As she left the store at 11:05 a.m. with a wagon full of charcoal, drinks and instant noodles, MidWeek‘s representative approached Christel with a simple question. She answered correctly and instantly won a $150 Kmart shopping spree.

“I like shopping at Kmart because it’s convenient,” said this week’s Mystery Shopper, a schoolteacher. “Also, it’s kid-friendly and their prices are good.”

Christel was born and raised in Kapahulu, and graduated from Kalani High School in 1999. She and husband DJ have two young children, and they live in Waianae. In her free time, Christel enjoys fishing, camping and spending time with her kids. She also likes to read MidWeek.

“I like that it’s free — all the ads come straight to me; I don’t have to go somewhere to pick it up,” she said. “I also like that it keeps me updated on anything going on in Hawaii.”
