Apprentice winner delights shoppers
SHOCKED customers got to meet an Apprentice winner while doing their shopping yesterday.
Tom Pellereau, who won the series last July, was in the Sainsbury's store in Stanway promoting his s-shaped nail file, the Stylfile.
As well as explaining to shoppers the benefits of his product, Tom, 33, also autographed files and posed for photos.
Tom said: "I have loved meeting people from Colchester and talking to them about the product, and thanking them for their support.
"I was passing by and used the petrol station a few weeks ago, and stopped to see if my product was on the shelf. The manager came over and invited me back, so here I am.
"People are lovely and it is nice to hear when people say 'I'm glad you won'."
Manager Cole May said: "Tom has been fantastic coming in, we know his time is very precious to him and he has given up his Saturday for us. We are immensely grateful.
"There was a lot of hustle and bustle around him even after a short space of time."
