The third draw in the Find It In AMAZING Forbes Promotion was held on Thursday, 19 November. Paula Leadbitter was the lucky winner of a $500 Why Leave Town gift card won through Allure On Main.
“This week I am encouraging all businesses to decorate their shop windows for Christmas. I am urging you all to pull out your stored decorations and lights, or add something unique and different, but please get involved in this competition,” said Forbes Business Chamber President, Marg Duggan.
The Christmas Window Competition is a public competition with the public being asked to vote on their favourite windows.
The categories are Best Business Window, Best Innovative Display and Viewer’s Choice. Businesses from outside of the CBD are encouraged to participate. Register your business entry by emailing forbes. firstname.lastname@example.org and attach an image of your window. People will be asked to click on the image to vote for the Viewer’s Choice. The competition will be promoted through local news and social media. Participants can assist by sharing social media promotion.
“This year the CBD is welcoming local schools who are creating displays in empty shop windows. Businesses from outside of the CBD have been encouraged to bring a display into the windows. Times are very different this Christmas, so I am encouraging everyone to participate and enjoy the windows and to visit businesses,” said Marg.
There are three $200 Why Leave Town cards to be won. The windows must be completed by Friday, 4 December, as judging will take place between 5 and 12 December. Winners will be announced on Monday, 14 December. Can you leave your lights on? Yes, buy a timer and leave those windows sparkling in the evenings!
