Heart of Rockford merchants put together quite a package for the winner of a holiday promotion. Jayne Remmelts visited all 20 participating merchants in a third-year event that rewards one lucky shopper for diligence. Remmelts said she finished her Christmas shopping but bought more for herself during the two days it took her to visit the stores in the Heart of Rockford holiday promotion.

On Wednesday, January 13, Remmelts picked up her prize in downtown Rockford, presented by Barb Stein, owner of Great Northern Trading Company. There are 32 members in the merchant organization, 20 of which took part in the contest. Shoppers were given a business card, which had to be stamped at the participating businesses. Her card was then drawn out of a container of all the cards completed.

The 1980 Rockford High School graduate learned she was the winner on her birthday. “I was very excited,” she said. Remmelts said she had no problem visiting each store and loves Rockford’s downtown. Stein said she was pleased to see a Rockford resident was the winner this year.
