Halloween was a blast at Bi-Lo Holdings’ store support centers and Harveys regional office with costume contests, a pumpkin-carving contest, Halloween movie trivia and, of course, plenty of treats and fun with co-workers.

We want to congratulate all of the winners from this year’s contests. The Costume Contest participants at each location showed their creativity with truly unique, hilarious and terrifying costumes, and contest winners received gift cards for their area banner stores.

The Jacksonville Store Support Center held a costume contest, candy corn contest and Halloween movie trivia. There was a costume contest and cubicle/office decorating contest at the Greenville Store Support Center and costume and goodie contests at the Harveys regional office.
