Congratulations to Brown Edwards on Winning the 2016 Merry Merchants Window Competition

November 22, 2016

Brown Edwards downtown Bristol has been voted first place in the window decorating contest! On Monday, November 21, during the annual Downtown Christmas Open House, Brown Edwards caught the eye of many and became the third recipient of the Merry Merchants Window Decorating Competition Award hosted by Believe in Bristol’s Design Committee. The merchants were challenged to make the most of their favorite Christmas movie and the winner was decided by judges from the Believe in Bristol Design Committee.

“Brown Edwards store front theme was very fitting and creative with their use of props to portray the Movie "Scrooge!" The creativity and the participation from all of the merchants was outstanding and helped to make downtown festive and ready for the holiday season,” stated Chris Chandler, Chair of the Believe in Bristol Design Committee.

The prize awarded was a certificate to showcase the win, features in Believe in Bristol’s e-news and social media pages, and, of course, bragging rights! The window display will remain up throughout the holiday season. Thank you to everyone that participated, we look forward to seeing what you come up with next year! Brown Edwards is located at 513 State Street, Bristol, VA 24201.
