Best Local Shopper Finalist

Posted By LocalShops1, Sunday, July 8, 2012
Updated: Saturday, July 7, 2012

We're looking for LocalShops1 Girl's BFF, the conscientious shopper who likes to support his or her neighborhood shops and restaurants. Now, we're not saying this person NEVER goes to the chains and Big Box stores. But this Shopper makes an effort to support the Mom & Pops whenever possible, and loves telling the world about the cool places around.
Past winners:  Linda Evans of Tampa and Holly Furlong of Clearwater

Please note that though past winners and LocalShops1 staff and advisory board members were nominated, they are not eligible for the awards.

The LocalShops1 Girl BFF nominees are ...

"Karen Lanigan
(of St. Petersburg) has changed providers for many services such as vehicle repair and maintenance, air conditioning and cooler service and supports nearly all local businesses. ... She goes out of her way to support other local community businesses." 

"Dawn Termani-Lawrence (of Tampa) frequents locally owned businesses regularly and always supports online contests, posts, promotions, etc. I've never heard a bad thing out of her mouth about any business, owner, member, etc."

Susan Leonidas, Brandon: "I love LocalShops1 Girl, and really wish that she'd come out to the Brandon/South Shore area more often so that more of my friends can not only join us, but also get to know us!"

"Courtney Caton (of St. Petersburg) is the ultimate Local Shopper. I don't even know when the last time she went to a chain restaurant!"

"Terry Foster (of St. Petersburg). She talks the talk and walks the walk of keeping it local. And she is vocal about it too, encouraging others to follow her lead."

"Sandy Hanna-Duffy (of Gulfport) is always around town helping local businesses and helping coordinate volunteers for events for the chamber and the merchants association. She's making a big impact here."
