To celebrate the launch, Stripes’ customers had the opportunity to buy one EL Campeón and get one free for one day only. But they also have the chance to nominate a local community champion — a hometown hero — on the Stripes Facebook page for the chance to win a $250 Stripes gift card. Eight winners will be selected at random; no purchase is necessary. Winners will be announced October 14.

Stripes Convenience Stores operates more than 700 convenience stores in Texas, New Mexico and Oklahoma. Restaurant service is available at more than 450 locations, primarily under the retailer’s proprietary Laredo Taco Co. brand.
