The North West Country Inc. business association enabled a few businesses to end the year with a bang when we announced the winners of the Christmas Shop Window Decorating Competition. We had stiff competition with many businesses going all out to create stunning shop fronts.
Two winners were chosen across all entrants in our rural villages, with Chanelle Jade Hair
Salon in Helensville and Zubu Women’s Boutique in Kumeu both taking home a $1,500 cash prize each. The business association hopes to make this an annual competition that will help put North West Country on the map and allow Christmas shoppers some fun as they shop locally.
Chanelle and Teresa were both over the moon with the prize winnings, with both business owners excited to receive funds that they could immediately invest into their business. “It has been such a hard year,” said Teresa Nobilo-Healey, “it is nice to have this competition to close the year and this means so much to us.” Chanelle and the team were so excited to hear the news. “It took a while to sink in,” said owner Chanelle Haywood, “but we couldn’t be happier. We put a lot of effort into the window display. This is wonderful.”
2024 is the year that everyone is looking forward to, and we hope to make it a top year for our business members. Starting the year off is the Ultimate Day Out competition. The competition is open in January and February, with the prize draw in March at the Kumeu Show. Simply spend $50 or more at any North West Country member’s business in this time, save your receipt, and upload it to our website www.northwestcountry.co.nz. The winner will win an ultimate day out for two in Adventure Country. More details on our website.
