Wreaths on display at 2nd and Meeker

Every holiday season, we look forward to our favorite holiday activities. Drinking hot chocolate on a chilly winter night, listening to Christmas songs on the radio, adorning our houses with twinkling lights. This year we decided to get in the Christmas spirit a little early by participating in a friendly holiday contest hosted in downtown Kent, WA. Torklift Central is one of 20+ local businesses contributing to the Kent Downtown Partnership’s wreath decorating contest, and we need your votes to win!

Wreaths are on display in downtown Kent from now through December 21st. You can find the Torklift Central wreath in the window of 2nd and Meeker—it’s decorated to reflect a few of the things the Torklift brand represents.

First, we incorporated washers, nuts, bolts and gears—quality is made in the details and since these components are the backbone of many of our products, they were prominently displayed in our wreath. We also threaded in American flags, because we are proud of the fact that Torklift products are manufactured in the USA.

Finally, you’ll see our Torklift Central sign with a turkey in the middle. Each year, Torklift Central organizes the annual Kent Turkey Challenge—a community event we started in 2011 in order to support the Kent Food Bank with food and monetary donations. We love this opportunity to give back to our neighbors and the Kent community, so we definitely wanted to incorporate it into our theme.

We’re proud of our holiday handiwork and we would love for you to see it! Head over to Kent, WA to check it out at the Kent Downtown Partnership.

However, as we mentioned above -- our holiday display is also part of a holiday contest, so we hope you’ll take the time to vote for Torklift Central’s wreath as your favorite this year! The wreath-decorating contest continues until December 21st, so there’s still time to cast your vote for Torklift Central!

There are two ways to submit your vote:

  1. Come on down to our store and say hello! Torklift Central has ballots in-store where you can cast your vote for our wreath.
  2. You can also vote online by clicking here.

Each person who submits a ballot, regardless of whether it’s submitted online or in-store, will be entered in a raffle for the chance to win a $50 gift card! It’s not a bad deal considering it’s free to vote. Who knows? You just might win a little something extra for Christmas this year!

Finally, if you do drop by the holiday display, we would love for you to take a selfie with our wreath. Head to downtown Kent, WA, grab a cup of hot cocoa and snap a photo next to the Torklift Central wreath! Post it to Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter, and tag the Kent Downtown Partnership at the handles below:
