Between the 17th September and 15th October, all Macknade customers will have  the opportunity to win one of 175 prizes during a special birthday prize draw.  Anyone shopping in Macknade’s Faversham or Ashford stores during this period  will be given a prizecard revealing what they’ve won, with prizes ranging from a  tasting experience at Simpsons Vineyard to a limited-edition Macknade t-shirt. 

Stefano Cuomo, CEO and 6th generation of the family to lead Macknade, commented, “I would like to take this opportunity to thank our team, our customers  & our suppliers for their incredible support over the years. Macknade wouldn’t be  anything without all of you and I am grateful to be a part of it. I encourage everyone to join us on September 17th to enjoy everything that makes Macknade so special.  Bring your friends, bring your family and let us bring this glorious summer to a  close in style.”
