Framin' Gallery, Optique Vision Center and Parkway Cleaners are finalists for the Edmond Area Chamber of Commerce's Bank of Oklahoma Small Business of the Year. The winner will be named Friday during the annual awards banquet.

The award honors businesses that have made significant growth and outstanding contributions to the economy and overall progress of the Edmond community.

Judges looked at accomplishments in 2012 such as business growth and performance; business strategies and innovation; business challenges and competitiveness and community involvement and contribution.

The 2013 Edmond Chamber Annual Awards Banquet begins at 6:30 p.m. at the Nigh University Center at the University of Central Oklahoma.

Framin' Gallery

Framin' Gallery, a do-it-yourself custom framing business, joined the chamber in 1983 and continues to grow. Employees of the family-owned-and-operated business have more than 80 years' experience.

Their philosophy has been displayed on a sign since the day they opened, reading: “The inconvenience of poor quality lingers long after the thrill of a bargain is forgotten.”
