Winners have been announced in the Downtown Tucker Business Holiday Decorating Contest.
First place goes to the Tucker Flower Shop which, according to proud owner Julia McDonald, is the oldest business in town. When asked how she felt about winning the $500 prize, she had a one-word answer: "Ecstatic!"
Runner-up is the Custom Frame Shop, owned by Kelly Holloway. "We literally threw this together at the last minute," she said. "It's kinda funny." Her design includes a detailed scene from the Nutcracker complete with dancing ballerinas.
Next up is Larry Shupbach's Village Shoe Service, and Matthews Cafeteria receives an honorable mention.
The contest was sponsored by the Tucker Business Association, Main Street Tucker Alliance and the Tucker Historical Society, and participants were businesses within the downtown area, as defined by Brockett Road, LaVista Road, Lawrenceville Highway and Tucker Industrial Road.
