Lynbrook chamber and village support new businesses seeking to open


One of the most important elements of a successful business is its window. It serves as the first impression for customers and can greatly impact their decision to enter the establishment.

The Lynbrook Chamber of Commerce will be hosting its first ever Window Makeover Contest, aimed at revitalizing and enhancing the visual appeal of local businesses in Lynbrook. The contest, open to all merchants within Lynbrook, seeks to transform ordinary windows into eye-catching displays that draw in customers and reflect the unique character of each business. By participating in the Window Makeover Contest, merchants have the opportunity to enhance their businesses and attract new customers.   

The contest invites merchants to submit their windows for cash prizes from supportive businesses from the Lynbrook area. A panel of judges will evaluate the entries based on creativity, originality, and how well the storefront reflects the business’s brand and identity.

A “Resident’s Favorite” prize will also be awarded. All participating businesses will receive a local restaurant gift certificate. 

“Our Window Makeover Contest will bring our business and community together to celebrate the best of Lynbrook,” Polly Talbott, president of the Lynbrook Chamber of Commerce, said. “Merchants will have a chance to shine and create a fresh look for their windows. Individually, and collectively, this program will attract people to the area, which will benefit the village, and our reputation as a great placed to operate a business. A vibrant and attractive window often brings in business, which enhances profits. We expect a number of businesses to create spectacular and fun displays.”

In addition to the makeover, the winning merchant will also receive a marketing package to promote their newly revamped storefront, including social media promotion, a feature on the chamber’s website, and a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the unveiling of the new look.

Merchants interested in participating can find information and sign up to participate on the Chamber’s website at The deadline for submissions is May 29 and the winner will be announced at the Chamber’s first Cruise Night on June 6.
