Melanie Arakaki Wins A $150 Spree At Safeway


On a recent Wednesday, Melanie Arakaki and daughter Lexie went to Safeway in Waimalu to get some things for dinner.

As she made her purchase at noon, MidWeek‘s representative approached Melanie with a simple question.

She answered correctly and instantly won a $150 Safeway shopping spree.

“I like shopping at Safeway because it’s convenient,” said this week’s Mystery Shopper, a real estate agent.

“Also, they have great deals and coupons.”

A 1992 graduate of Kapaa High School, Melanie was born on Hawaii island, raised on Kauai and moved to Oahu after high school.

In her free time, she enjoys traveling. She also likes to read MidWeek.

“I read it cover to cover,” she said.

“I like the ads, the articles and the coupons.”
