The big sign is finally legit

In 1960, Lowell Slack commissioned a spectacular sign for The Taffy Shop to celebrate the 25th anniversary. It included glowing neon and twinkling light bulbs in the letters that spelled out "TAFFY SHOP". For 54 years, the sign took a beating from the elements- so in 2014 we refurbished the sign to it's original condition, including the twinkling lights. Small problem- It was illegal! The sign code had been changed in the 80s to outlaw flashing lights on a sign. In February, the Town of Estes Park issued The Taffy Shop the first ever "Historic Sign Permit" which allows our sign to operate the way it was designed and originally installed in 1960, to the delight of loyal old customers who remember the display. It operates every evening after dusk for a few hours.
What would you say?
If you're creative, you already see the opportunity... This little changeable sign in our front window provides a fun chance to share a message with thousands of Estes Park visitors who pass by the display. Send us your idea and you'll be famous if we use your suggestion. There are 8 character spaces on each of 3 lines. We'll be doing the 'spring' window display in the next day or two, if that helps spark any ideas.

You could WIN a cooler full of taffy today

Today, we're teaming up with the folks who are opening the new "Mountain Lifestyle" store called "HYK" by filling a YETI cooler with taffy for a contest. You could take home the cooler and taffy if you're the closest guess to how many pieces of taffy are inside... (Loyal Taffy Shop customers should be able to get pretty close). If you're in or near Estes Park today, stop by their new store at 149 East Elkhorn Ave between 5 and 8. They will have lots of door prizes and giveaways in addition to this grand prize contest of the cooler and taffy- not to mention a great line of merchandise and grand opening discounts today only.... See you there!
