Downtown Courtenay BIA Media Release
Tuesday, December 1, 2009
For Immediate Release
Shop windows in Downtown Courtenay are glittering with the magic of Christmas thanks to the Walk the Windows decorating contest that continues until the end of the day on Friday, Dec. 11. Now is your chance to vote for your favourite display. All ballots will be entered into a draw for a $1,000 shopping spree that can be spent at any participating Walk the Windows business.
Ballots are available at all of the 56 local stores that have set up window displays for the contest. The top three favourite windows, as voted by the public, will also win three “best-dressed” prizes. With as many festive themes in downtown windows as there are businesses, there is sure to be something that delights every eye.
Posters are in-store showing the suggested route for visiting all the shop windows. A good place to start is the Comox Valley Art Gallery on Duncan Ave. with its fun display of vintage Santa Clauses.
Walk the Windows is sponsored by the Comox Valley Record and the Downtown Courtenay Business Improvement Association (BIA). For more information about Walk the Windows call the BIA Coordinator Kim Stubblefield at 250-337-2096 or visit the website at http://www.downtowncourtenay.com.
