The Mad Ones Christmas Window District League went live some time ago and, ever since, members of the business community are locked in a deadly scramble for votes.
The winners will be presented with a frightfully unique trophy by an elf – or someone who looks like an elf – close to Christmas – but not so close that the elf won’t get time off work to attend.
“We’re into the last 24 hours of the competition and we’re all watching one another in case the shops on the other side of the street get one up on us,” said one shopkeeper who wished to remain synonymous with the deep-rooted business culture of the town.
Them on the other Side
“We’d hate for them on the other side to win it. Oh, I hope that we win it on this side. If we do there won’t be a bullock standing by Saturday. Don’t the devil pick you to mention my name,” said the grim faced shopkeeper.
On the other hand, I came across the management and staff at Lynch’s Pharmacy and their twin Frostys outside the door.
Begging and Scouting
We’re in the running and we’re almost begging and scouting for every vote we can get said staff member, Bríd Devane.
“Voting is closing at 4pm on Wednesday and we’re appealing to our customers and friends to vote for us. We have all worked hard on the shop inside and out and it’s looking great and Dan Lynch came up with a few lovely touches,” said Bríd.
