MURTOA is fast getting a reputation as the luckiest town in the Wimmera, if shoppers at Murtoa Community Pharmacy are anything to go by.
The pharmacy has produced five Victoria and Tasmania-wide prize winners from six monthly competition draws this year.
The competitions are part of a catalogue program the pharmacy is involved in.
Murtoa Community Pharmacy's Joanne Warrick said she was thrilled for the winners.
Phyllis Hill, 92, won a seven-night trip to Thailand worth more than $7000.
"I think I'm a bit old," she said.
"I'll give it to one of my grandchildren perhaps."
The hot streak started in January when Tania Richards won a $500 fuel voucher.
Murtoa went back-to-back when Carolyn West won an iPad in February.
The run appeared to be over in March, when Morwell claimed the prize, but Murtoa was back on the winners' list in April when Anne Hammerton won a coffee machine worth $449.
May saw Mrs Hill get the first major prize for the year, and Margaret Exell picked up a $500 Helloworld Travel voucher.
Mrs West said it was a good effort for a town of Murtoa's size.
"I think we're keener here. A lot of big towns don't enter, little towns do," she said.
She said Mrs Warrick made the effort to make sure people entered the competition.
Mrs Warrick said the pharmacy has participated in the catalogue promotion for about 14 months
"There's lots of talk around town about who would like to win what thing now," she said.
Rupanyup Pharmacy Depot is also involved with the promotion, but is yet to have a winner.
