Sophie Hatakenaka Wins A $150 Spree At Kmart


While looking at the Kmart advertisement insert in MidWeek, Sophie Hatakenaka saw some plastic storage drawers she wanted, so Wednesday she took a trip to the Nimitz store.

As she made her purchase at 4:25 p.m., MidWeek‘s representative approached Sophie with a simple question. She answered correctly and instantly won a $150 Kmart spree.

“I like shopping at Kmart because the parking is easy, and I like to buy my casual clothes here,” said this week’s Mystery Shopper, a floral associate. “Also, they usually have what’s in the ads.”

Sophie was born and raised in Nuuanu, and graduated from McKinley High School. In her free time, she enjoys doing water exercises, and volunteering at Hawaii Theatre and Diamond Head Theatre. She also likes to read MidWeek.

“I like reading Pamela Young’s column, it’s good to see people helping out each other,” she said. “And I like the store ads.”
