The business initiative program happened between April 15 to May 15; the cash prize, sponsored by Janda Group, went to whoever sent in the most photos to the ABA of them improving their storefront in different ways.

Jodi Steeves, president of the ABA, had suggested a variety of different things people can do like sweeping the sidewalk, washing the windows, improving signage, or getting a new light.

“Great job Franz spring cleaning your storefront,” Steeves said. “From washing windows to sweeping sidewalks. Your efforts have paid off!”
