HARTFORD, Conn. — French Cleaners, a member of the Hartford business community for more than a century, recently offered its customers a chance to win a free year of dry cleaning. Customers were invited to enter the month-long contest by providing a current e-mail address, and the promotion garnered more than 2,200 entries.
A longtime French Cleaners customer was randomly chosen to draw the winning entries on April 10. Vanessa Barneschi of West Hartford won the grand prize, a year’s worth of dry cleaning valued at $100 a month. Runner-up was Jennifer Chase, also of West Hartford, who will receive a year’s worth of dry cleaning valued at $50 a month.
“It was a really fun contest and brought a lot of positive feedback from our clients,” says Phil Cote, French Cleaners president.
