The recreation division of Florence Community Services and the Greater Florence Chamber of Commerce have partnered to organize “Adopt a Storefront” program. Business owners, non-profit organizations, family owners, or anyone interested but not located on Main Street have the opportunity to make Historic Downtown a “Winter Wonderland” by adopting a vacant storefront and decorating it for the month of December.
All store fronts must be decorated in time for the department’s annual Christmas on Main Street event, which will be held Friday, December 1st. Participants can begin decorating storefronts as early as Sunday, November 26, 2017. All decorations must be removed by Friday, January 5, 2018.
Judging begins Friday, December 1st at Christmas on Main Street. The public can vote by visiting the Town’s website at www.florenceaz.gov or on social media. The categories are Best Overall, Best Main Street Business and Best “Adopted Storefront.”
For those who adopt a storefront, please remember that these storefronts are privately owned buildings. For that reason, the following are not allowed: nails, permanent fixtures, gas operated fixtures, kerosene, candles or open flames.
All business owners must add property as additional insured.
If you are interested in participating in the “Adopt-a-storefront” program, please contact Recreation Coordinator Ali Feliz at (520) 868-7585 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
