Minnesota Retailer Wins National Award for Their Holiday Window Display
A retailer in Minnesota won a national award for their amazing holiday window display! The retailer is called MartinPatrick3 and it's in the North Loop in Minneapolis, at 212 N Third Ave. They teamed up with the Minnesota Dance Theatre to put together this window display using the theatre's costumes from "The Nutcracker Fantasy".
MartinPatrick3 won the Judges Choice Award in the Winning Windows of North America contest. This contest is usually only for New York City retailers but this year they created a category for retailers outside of NYC, according to Bring Me the News.
According to a press release, the window displays were judged in three different areas:
- Originality and creativity;
- Captures the spirit of the season, entertains and delights; and
- Professionalism, execution and technical aspects.
MartinPatrick3 beat out some national brands for this title, which is very impressive! If the Minnesota Dance Theatre was able to put on their performance of "The Nutcracker Fantasy" this year the window display may have never come to be.
The reason the costumes were able to be used in the window display was because the Minnesota Dance Theatre can't put on performances due to COVID. So I think MartinPatrick3 lucked out! The window display looks amazing. Take a look at this setup, the Minnesota Dance Theatre shared pictures on their Facebook page.
