VAN NUYS, Calif.—After being flooded with impressive entries, DreamZone Entertainment is ready to declare the winners of its Romeo & Juliet in-store display contest. Back in December, the award-nominated studio sent out the call to all adult retailers to create a merchandising display showcasing Romeo & Juliet. Upon completion, store owners submitted photos of their presentations. Entries were judged on creativity and effective merchandising. Though the competition was stiff and all participants had done an amazing job, someone had to come out on top. Those winners are as follows:
Congratulations to First Place recipient Fairvilla MegaStore of Orlando, Florida. They received the most votes for their rustic homage to the Shakespearean tale [pictured].
Running a close second is Adult World of Schenectady, NY. Their imaginative display artfully incorporated matching mannequins and utilized the film's trailer as a selling point.
The third place runner up is Kalli's Love Stuff of Auburn, AL. Their romantic alcove took a classical approach with Victorian inspired costuming and décor.
"Congratulations go out to all three of these wonderful stores," stated Adam Hasner, VP of DreamZone Entertainment. "Their ingenuity and attention to detail are outstanding. The voting process was truly arduous, and all entries were terrific. We're extremely grateful for everyone's participation; your hard work and creativity has greatly helped to generate buzz and increase sales across the board. When products are skillfully merchandised, as seen here, there will always be a remarkable return on the investment."

DreamZone Entertainment proudly presents a sensual reimagining of Shakespeare's classic tale of star-crossed love, Romeo & Juliet. This modern-day adaptation appropriately positions hardcore eroticism while remaining true to the original vision. The film's seamless transition between Shakespearean poetics and current vernacular provides contemporary audiences with a more palatable rendition.
Set in present time, the story commences with Romeo (Rocco Reed) heart-broken over the loss of his former girlfriend Rosalyn (Andy San Dimas). Through the consolation of his loyal friend Benvolio, Romeo discovers comfort in the arms of the equally woeful Juliet (Chanel Preston). Despite the longstanding feud which rages between their families, the two lovers forbid the ensuing turmoil from obstructing their union. When the strife spirals out of control, Romeo and Juliet are left with dire consequences and life-altering decisions to make. Following the impassioned duo through this chaos are India Summer (Lady Capulet), Anthony Rosano (Tybalt), Ann Marie Rios (Polly), Brian Street Team (Benvolio), and AVN Hall of Famer Tom Byron (Capulet patriarch).
