Flowers By Irene Awarded “Display Window of the Month”

On Thursday, February 16th members of the Main Street Design Committee awarded Lisa Jackson, owner of Flowers By Irene located at 500 N. Second Avenue with the Main Street “Display Window of the Month” award for February. 

In efforts to award and acknowledge the downtown businesses that put the time and energy into designing a well-thought out window display, the Main Street Design Committee has recently launched a new program entitled “Window Display of the Month.”  Each month the Main Street Design Committee will take a look at the various storefronts and window displays throughout the Main Street District, and choose the one that best meets the criteria for a well-designed window display.  The chosen business will then be notified and awarded with a certificate that can be displayed to the public. 

“Flowers By Irene was chosen as this month’s winner for their creative Valentine’s Day display,” explained Chelsey Fisher, Main Street Director.  “Not only did they do an excellent job at conveying the appropriate theme and relating it to the products they have on display, but they also had it arranged in a way that was enticing to the public.”

The criteria that the Design Committee looks at includes the general effectiveness of the window display, use and coordination of color in the display, creativity and/or the use of a seasonal theme, and the neatness of the signage, arrangement and overall appearance.

“Having an attractive window display can speak volumes about the quality and positive impressions businesses and the downtown area in general makes on the public, explained Dennis Veatch, Design Committee Chair. “Great-looking windows can sell the items on display and sell the public on the store’s, and Main Street’s, positive image.  As we continue to make improvement to the downtown area, we feel it is important to award those who are helping with that positive image.”
