A Petal woman literally hauled in the groceries Friday morning at the Corner Market in Petal.

Dolores Kirkland won a raffle sponsored by the Petal Rotary Club and won a three-minute shopping spree at the store. Kirkland mapped out her plan before hand and then began her attack on the store. At the end of the three-minutes she had made her way through the entire store and when everything was rung up she had amassed $773 worth of groceries.

The Rotary Club raffle raised about $1700 for the Dolly Parton Imagination library which instills the love of reading in pre-school children.

"It supports the people right here in our community and that's what the rotary is all about," said Neil Gray, Petal Rotary CLub President. "Not only do we do international services, but we really focus on what we can do right here with-in the community."

Corner Market management chipped in $500 toward the cost of the groceries.
