With shoppers experiencing tighter budgets this holiday season, the Merchants of Historic Downtown Harrisonburg are giving back – with a grand prize of $1,200 worth of gifts.
Downtown visitors are invited to enter the Window Wonderland Giveaway, sponsored by Harrisonburg Downtown Renaissance. Prizes are currently on display at 124 South Main Street (the former Lä Dē Dä space across from Dave’s Downtown Taverna). To win the entire window of gifts, visit at least half of the showcased businesses and find out the exact value of the donated item. Record the values on an entry form, available at the decorated storefront, the Hardesty Higgins-House, and various downtown businesses.
“Not only does this highlight our downtown businesses in a prominent, beautiful showcase on Main Street, but it also encourages shoppers to go into those businesses that they’ve always heard about, but never got around to visiting”, says promotions manager Alexis Morehouse, “We’re really hoping to see a continuing trend of buying local this year as shoppers choose where to purchase their holiday gifts”.
Some items include:
- a wine-of-the-month club membership,
- a full spa package,
- home décor items,
- a ukulele,
- toys for tots,
- restaurant gift certificates
Harrisonburg Downtown Renaissance will collect all entries at the Hardesty-Higgins House (212 South Main Street) through December 14th and will announce a winner on Monday, December 15th.
