HOBOKEN, NJ —The Hoboken Business Alliance has launched a holiday window decorating contest, “Window into Hoboken,” to showcase local Hoboken businesses. Not only do business owners have a chance to win $1,000 prizes or a $2,000 grand prize, but residents and visitors can also win prizes from the W Hotel.
Residents and visitors are encouraged to explore the “Window into Hoboken” displays and share their favorites on social media for a chance to win top prizes provided by the W Hoboken.
“It’s no doubt that the holidays are going to feel different this year, so it’s important to bring joy to the community and continue to support local businesses any way we can,” shares Gregory Dell’Aquila, president of the Hoboken Business Alliance. “Through this contest, we’re able to shine a light on all the wonderful businesses lining the streets of Hoboken and bring attention and hopefully more customers to their storefronts.”
