The contest concluded on September 5 and the winners are…


Win the Window Contest

OVERVIEW: Participating Downtown merchants and restaurants will donate either a gift certificate or an item valued at $50 or more. These donated items will be displayed in the Smith’s Men’s Wear window at 207 W Washington St. Athens, AL  35611, along with signage promoting participating businesses. The donated items will be split between the 2 windows (Window 1 and Window 2).

Over the course of 2 weeks, August 22nd – September 5th, 2020, patrons that spend $10 or more at a participating business can enter the Win the Window contest by putting an entry form (containing their name, telephone number, and email information) in a container at that participating business. A patron may complete an entry form for every $10 the patron spends at the business.  For example, a patron that spends $100 can submit an entry form 10 times.  All the participating businesses’ entries will be combined into one pool and two winners (a winner of the donated items in Window 1, and a winner of the donated items in Window 2) will be randomly drawn from the combined pot. 

Winners will be randomly drawn from all eligible entries on September 8th, 2020 at the Athens Main Street office 107 N Jefferson St. Athens AL  35611.  Winners do not have to be present to win.
