MADISON — The Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation announced Tuesday that Anthony’s 511 barbershop in downtown Watertown is the winner in its annual Main Street Makeover Contest.

According to the announcement, the barbershop, opened in 2004 by owner and Milwaukee native Anthony Chentis, was selected as winner of the makeover contest based on the business’s successful track record, clear vision for the property and potential for expanded customer traffic and employment in a highly visible location along Watertown’s Main Street.

Anthony’s 511 will receive personalized technical assistance and up to $10,000 to implement the changes, which include improvements to the dated façade, updated signage, enhanced waiting area space and a redesign of interior space to eliminate wasted space.
