GREENWICH, CONN. -- The storefront windows all over town will soon be looking a lot like Christmas as the Greenwich Chamber of Commerce sponsors its annual holiday decorating contest for businesses.
The contest is open to all local businesses with a storefront and is not limited to chamber members. Businesses are encouraged to decorate their storefronts in the spirit of the holidays and will be eligible to win prizes and special recognition for their efforts.
Prizes include free advertising on the chamber’s website, 50 percent off a chamber membership and special recognition at the chamber’s holiday party.
This year’s windows will be evaluated by four groups of judges. The town will be broken into four areas:
- Central Greenwich: starting from the intersection of North Street and East Putnam Avenue and ending at the Anthropologie store on West Putnam Avenue, including Greenwich Avenue and all side streets.
- Byram, Glenville and Pemberwick
- Cos Cob and Riverside
- Old Greenwich
There will be two winners per geographic area: Best Classic Holiday Store Front and Best Original Holiday Store Front.
The judging is from Dec. 1 to 6. Winners will be announced Dec. 11 at the chamber’s Holiday Party and Storefront Decorating Awards event from 5:30 to 7 p.m at the Bruce Museum, One Museum Drive. This party is open to members and non-members. RSVP is required. Contact the chamber at 203-869-3500 or email@example.com.
