Spring Cleaning For Decatur Businesses

Posted:
Decatur – It's spring cleaning time and Decatur businesses are doing their part.

The 5th annual small business beautification contest is underway.  Eleven awards are available in this year's contest.

“We feel that first impression for a business and the community is very important,” Julie Stalets, owner of Coffee Connection, told WAND's Doug Wolfe.  “We go out and walk the property, make sure it's clean.  The landscaper mows, pulls weeds.  It's a lot of work.”

Coffee Connection has won several awards in past years.  The shop has made a considerable investment in landscaping to make its property more attractive.

“If your business looks attractive and exciting and welcoming you want to be there,” said Jill Davis of Beautiful Decatur Business.  “You want to go to that business.  So, it's a win, win for the business and the Decatur community.”

To register your business in this year's contest go to beautifuldecaturbusiness.com.  Click on register and follow the instructions.
