PHOENIX, Ore. — A customer at the Albertsons store in southeast Medford won $1 million from the Safeway/Albertsons Monopoly game, which the store plans to celebrate on Wednesday.
Albertsons said in a brief statement that the customer won through a second chance drawing.
“We couldn't be more thrilled to have a winner in the Phoenix, Medford community this year. People REALLY do win at Monopoly! We are so excited to be presenting this check to one of our loyal customers,” said Gineal Davidson, division president for Oregon and Southwest Washington Safeway and Albertsons.
The local store director will be presenting a large check to the winner, plus cake and refreshments for the public on Wednesday starting at 2:15 p.m. The lucky customer will be arriving in a limousine, the company said.
Albertsons has been running the "Monopoly, Shop, Play, Win!" game from February through May for 13 years.
