WILMINGTON - On Thursday, locals gathered at Memorial Hall to hear which of the three finalists in the “Make It On Main Street” competition, which was to award $20,000 to a new business in Wilmington’s downtown district, would take home the prize.

Instead, there was a tie, the prize money was split, and a promise of a third prize was made, should the runner-up choose to move to town, too.
