HEATHER BOA Bullet News GODERICH – Homescapes by Lynn was named Business of the Year during the 5th annual Spirit of Success awards gala tonight, hosted by the Huron Chamber of Commerce.


About 200 guests at the gala dinner clapped non-stop as the names of dozens of potential businesses and entrepreneurs were read by master of ceremonies Dylan Bartlett. Then the clapping turned to drum rolls of hands on tables that set cutlery and dinnerware rattling as he announced: “And the winner is. . . Homescapes by Lynn.”

“Amazing things can happen when you run a top-notch business,” Barlett said. Homescapes by Lynn won the new business award in 2012 and now business of the year. Lynn, you’re definitely doing all the right things,” he said.

Owner Lynn Chisholm said she was at a loss for words.

“It’s an honour to be a retailer amongst so many people. It was a hard year. The tornado had a lot to do with that,” said Lynn Chisholm, owner of a retail store in Goderich’s downtown core, which was damaged in the August 2011 tornado. The store carries Benjamin Moore products, countertops, cabinetry, hardware, art and accents, along with interior design services.

The chamber received 68 nominations – some of them doubles or in multiple categories – from customers, employees, businesses and the nominees themselves for the Spirit of Success Awards.

Richard Lehnen Young Entrepreneur Award – Sarah Campbell, owners of Miga’s Balloons + More;
