Heritage Grocers Group Expands Lotería Scratcher Sweepstakes

Heritage Grocers Group is expanding its Loteria Scratcher Sweepstakes to its additional banner stores.

Heritage Grocers Group is bringing back its popular “Lotería Scratcher Sweepstakes” program. This year, the sweepstakes is expanding to include the El Rancho Supermercado, Tony’s Fresh Market and Los Altos Ranch Market banners.

The program will run through Aug. 19, offering customers a chance to win a share of $1.5 million in prizes.

Colloquially also known as “Mexican Bingo,” Lotería is an game and cultural symbol that celebrates its culture and connects people of all ages – an effort that heavily resonates with Heritage Grocers Group’s mission.

In a recent interview with Heritage Grocers Group’s COO Prabash Coswatte, he delved deeper into the company’s “North Star” to be “the most admired and respected Hispanic grocery company in the country, supporting our communities with the freshest, most authentic products at prices that make it possible for them to feed their families.” He concluded that Heritage’s mission isn’t “just what we do – it’s who we are.”

This year is Cardenas Markets’ fourth year running the program, and the first year that the Lotería Scratcher Sweepstakes will be available at all 115 banner company stores.

“At Heritage, we pride ourselves on creating a place where community thrives, where people can come together and feed their families with affordable, fresh and authentic products that are representative of their culture and identity,” said CMO Adam Salgado of Heritage Grocers Group.

Heritage Grocers Group is expanding its Loteria Scratcher Sweepstakes to its additional banner stores.

“In line with this effort, we are thrilled to welcome back and expand our ‘Lotería Scratcher Sweepstakes,’ program so all our dedicated customers have a chance to win. Playing is easy, and it’s a very fun way for people to come together, to connect with community and for us to give back to our loyal customers.”
