HIGH POINT, N.C.–The GuildMaster “Show Your Stuff” contest wrapped up with a total of more than 750 fans casting almost 7,000 ballots to recognize the most outstanding retail displays across the country.
GuildMaster retailers posted photos of their best displays on the GuildMaster on Tour Facebook site. Fans then voted for their favorite displays.
“We are blessed to have such a highly engaged and passionate group of people working with us,” says Steve Crowder, GuildMaster chief executive officer. “All of the displays showed an outstanding level of ingenuity and truly showed off the beauty and range of the GuildMaster product. We would like to say a big ‘thank you’ to all who participated and voted.”
CasaBella Interiors, Brandon, Miss., the grand price winner, will receive $5,000 in GuildMaster product, $1,000 for its charity, Community Animal Rescue and Adoption and 500 trees planted in its honor. Another top nine retailers, including runner-up Domain XCIV, Forth Worth, Texas, will receive $1,000 for their charity, $1,000 in GuildMaster product, and 500 trees to be planted in their honor.
Editors from trade publications also voted on their favorite displays. The editors’ choice for best retail display is “Welcome Home” by Beyond the Door in Senoia, Ga.
“I loved the casual entertaining feel in Beyond the Door’s display; it was so warm and inviting,” said Andrea Lillo from HFN Magazine. ”The use of details such as the backdrops on the wall and the touches of greenery added to the ambience, and there are so many items that draw your eye in. I want to know when the party is starting!”
