Luck was on the side of Megan Kennedy of Sooke, a finalist in a draw for a new Mini on Tuesday at Quality Foods in Langford.

Their names drawn at random, finalists selected one of various keys on the table to use in attempting to start up the car. All but one were dummies.

Kennedy, one of the last contestants to try her key, heard the vroom and realized she had won the car. A regular shopper at the store, Kennedy hoped to be able to fit her great Dane dog in the back of the car, which has fold-down back seats.

The grocery chain had been running the promotion, tied to signing up for the QF cellphone app, since its Langford store opened last month.
