Local Man Wins Barnes & Noble Contest

9-11 BARNS AND NOBLE WINNER PICEUGENE, Ore. — A Eugene man is celebrating a big win Thursday, after entering a contest on a whim.

Zach Roberts was just awarded a $1,000 gift card from Barnes & Noble at Valley River Center. He also wins a free trip to Warner Bros. Studio in Hollywood for a VIP tour.

It’s all part of Barnes & Noble’s Get Pop Cultured sweepstakes. It wasn’t Roberts’ idea to sign up for the contest. He says an employee talked him into it.

“It’s amazing. I’m still kind of shocked about it. I’m still waiting for the card to get into my hands, for it to really happen. No it’s really neat. It’s pretty mind blowing,” Roberts said.

Roberts and his wife will head to Hollywood in December, which coincides with their anniversary.

This is the first time the Eugene Barnes & Noble has ever had a winner for a national contest.
