South Knox Spring Spruce Up Contest

The South Knoxville Alliance of Businesses and Professionals (SKA) is hosting its first annual Business Beautification contest open to any business in the 37920 zip code area. The top three businesses, selected by a committee of SKA members, will receive a certificate acknowledging their commitment to improve our community. In addition their picture and story will appear in the Herald Newspaper and will be officially recognized on the SKA’s website and Facebook page.

Here’s how the contest works: May 15, 2017, and June 15, 2017, spruce up your property by painting, planting or just picking up a bit to make your business look nicer. Use our online form to send us a before and after picture.

Besides the fact that a pleasant community appearance adds to values, helps attract business investment, and just improves the neighborhood reputation. Research shows that beauty is one of the top three factors in creating community attachment, or loyalty, to your particular town or city.

As an incentive, Lowe's of South Knoxville, Elder’s Ace Hardware and Stanley’s Greenhouse are giving additional incentives when you purchase material or equipment to do the work of sprucing up your business.

  • Stanley’s Greenhouse is offering a 20% discount
