And the winner is….
The competition was stiff but after careful consideration the winner of the Small Shop Showdown at Huntington Mall is WASH, owned by Jamie Seabolt. He competed with a variety of other local entrepreneurs who described their business concepts to a panel of real estate leasing experts. As the winner, Seabolt will receive six months of FREE rent inside Huntington Mall, May 1 – October 31, 2020. A few key spaces are available inside the mall. The one which best suits the store’s needs will soon be determined. In addition to the free use of store space, Seabolt will receive a package of marketing assistance to help get the business off the ground, including on-mall signage, a news release, digital signage and advertising on social media.
WASH is a business that offers an incredible mix of personal hair and skincare products, including soaps, shampoos, bath bombs, shower steamers, beard oil, bubble bars and more. The products are formulated with fresh, vegetarian ingredients that are formed with great artistry into shapes that are beautiful and, in some cases, even appetizing.
The judges of the Small Shop Showdown were very impressed with all the candidates who entered the competition. As a result, choosing a winner was extremely difficult. Consequently, the judges are looking forward to working with the finalists to help them bring their exciting business concepts to reality inside the mall.
