COUNTY News:

Los Alamos County and Los Alamos MainStreet are offering local businesses the opportunity to become Manhattan Project National Historical Park attractions July 14-17 during this year’s Los Alamos ScienceFest.

Businesses including CB FOX and Finishing Touch have adorned their street-facing windows with Manhattan Project displays of furniture, clothing, signs and accessories collected from the set of the television series Manhattan after the program was cancelled earlier this year.

Contact Ryn Herrmann at LACDC, 505.661.4807 or via e-mail at ryn@losalamos.org to arrange a time to visit the storage area and pick out objects for your display—either inside a street facing window or inside your business!

Last year, nearly 10,000 people were in town for the Los Alamos ScienceFest. Businesses that participated in the event or promotion saw a marked increase in sales!

Also this summer, the County’s tourism marketing services contractor, Griffin and Associates, is conducting a Facebook campaign, #ShopInLosAlamos, featuring a different participating Los Alamos business on the Visit Los Alamos Facebook page—every week! Businesses need only contact David Empey at dempey@griffinassoc.com or 505.764.4444 and provide business name, address, contact information, hours of operation, and a description of products and/or services in 50 words or less.

Include up to four photos that show people shopping or experiencing your products and services, along with descriptions and attribution, if appropriate. In return, Griffin and Associates will confirm posting dates, and recommend ways each participating business can maximize the post with visitors and existing customers alike. Questions can be directed to David Empey at 505.764.4444.
