The Bloomfield Center Alliance (BCA) is excited to announce the winners of our first Holiday Window Display Competition. Gail Anns Beauty Salon (275 Glenwood Avenue) won in the Judges Choice category, after a three-member panel of volunteer judges chose them after visiting all twenty-one businesses. Over one thousand votes were cast on the BCA Facebook page and in the end Anthonys Cheesecake (71 Washington Street) was voted the Peoples Choice favorite window display. Each business will receive a plaque acknowledging the victory along with bragging rights for their award winning displays. In addition, two other businesses received Honorable Mentions. They are Ultimate Visions Hair Salon (71 Washington Street) and Universal Martial Arts (48 Washington Street)
Commenting on how the competition went, BCA Director Ollyn J. Lettman states Considering that this was the first time for the initiative, we are very pleased with the level of interest it generated from the community and number of businesses who wanted to participate. Several of them really took the competition very seriously and displayed a great level of creativity and holiday spirit in their storefronts. Our hope is that taken together all these businesses helped to bring a little more holiday cheer to Bloomfield Center and attention to our growing business community. BCA plans to hold the competition again next year. The BCA would like to thank everyone who helped pick the two winners, especially Anne Prince, Maria Probst, and Rick Hathaway, our volunteer judges committed to helping Bloomfield Center.
