Play Five by Five in Downtown Summit

SUMMIT, NJ - A new, fun and interactive game for customers to play while shopping downtown is coming October 14, and it is called  “Five by Five".

Sponsored by Summit Downtown, Inc. , the game is easy to play.  Simply visit any of the over 70 participating downtown businesses to pick up a game card.  “Five by Five” posters will be displayed in the windows of participating merchants, and you can play wherever you see this sign.  The game card is similar to a Bingo card, but instead of five columns headed with a letter spelling out the word B-I-N-G-O, each column of the “Five by Five” game card will feature a street in the downtown shopping district.   The street name headings are Beechwood Road, Maple Street, Springfield Avenue, Union Place and Summit Avenue.

Whenever a customer makes a purchase at a business on any of the five streets, the merchant will place a sticker in the column under their street heading.  The object of the game is to complete a row of five, and this can be done by playing horizontally, vertically or diagonally.  The customer decides how they want to play - visit five different businesses on the same street and make a purchase at each, or visit five different streets and make a purchase at one business on each of the streets.

Once five spaces in a row have been completed, the game card is left with the merchant who placed the last sticker on the card and that shopper will be entered into a random drawing to win one of ten $50 Summit gift certificates.  You must be 18 years or older to play, with winners will be notified by phone or e-mail.  The game runs through November 8.

According to Mark Wadmond, Events Chairman of Summit Downtown, Inc., “One of our own downtown merchants came up with the “Five by Five” game concept, and we are very excited to offer shoppers a chance to win one of ten $50 Summit gift certificates.  We hope that customers will enjoy playing at their local favorites as well as trying out something new.”

 For additional information about “Five by Five” and a list of all participating merchants, visit, or call 908 / 277-6100.

Unlike a traditional open-end mutual fund, CEFs have a fixed number of shares available to trade. Their price is not tied to the value of the underlying portfolio. The only way the number of shares ...

Let’s make America the Greatest Show on Earth Again.


I was very sad to learn that after 146 years of big-top entertainment the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus is folding its tent and leaving town.


This comes a year after the circus, due to mounting pressures from animal rights activists, got rid of the elephants.
