MainStreet Libertyville officials have announced the winners of the downtown holiday window display contest.

Dennis Ansay, a member of the group's design committee, announced the winners at the recent Libertyville tree-lighting ceremony.

The winner in the retail business category was Someone's in the Kitchen, featuring a gingerbread Cook Mansion.

"It was great fun creating our window, which could never have happened without Laurie Loeb of Loeb Design Group," said owner Sue Edmondson.

"It is wonderful to be a part of such a great community and have the amazing support of MainStreet Libertyville, that winning the contest was just icing on our gingerbread."

The winner for the service business was Allure Designs in Beauty at their new location at 521 N. Milwaukee Ave.

Owner Shelly Malizola said she appreciates the window decorating contest and giving Libertyville's merchants an opportunity to showcase their stores.

"I love driving through Libertyville, especially this time of the year, and seeing how festive our town can be," Malizola said.

"We are so grateful for our community's support of shopping locally in our small businesses. I want to give special recognition to my merchandiser, Megan Bernsee; Carla of Cottage Industries landscaping; and the Allure team who helped make all of this possible."

MainStreet Executive Director Pam Hume said this contest has been going on for quite a few years and it is always fun to see the windows and the creativity of the downtown businesses.
