St. Petersburg, FL (PressExposure) September 08, 2008 -- Local Shopper, LLC, and localshops1.com is happy to announce the appointment of Jennifer Gentile as its west Pasco representative.
Jennifer Gentile is a native Floridian and a proud graduate of the University of Florida ("Go, Gators!" she writes) She lives in New Port Richey with her husband and their four cats and works at SouthEast Personnel Leasing, an employee leasing company.
She writes: I feel keeping our local businesses open keeps the community alive. Letting the chain stores take over everything is a shame. I know our economy makes it hard to stay afloat these days, but I much rather spend a little more and know that I am helping to keep our community together. It may sound a little silly, but it makes you feel like you are doing something good for someone else. Our area in western Pasco still has that small town feel, and I think keeping our locally owned stores open will help it stay that way.
Local Shopper is committed to promoting locally owned, independent shops. Its Web site, [http://www.localshops1.com], is the most comprehensive site of its kind in the Tampa Bay area. Independent businesses get listed for free, including map and link to their own Web sites. Shoppers may browse all they want, for free.
Ms. Gentile is responsible for finding the best independent businesses in west Pasco and making sure they have a presence on localshops1.com. She also is responsible for updating the local shopper blog, and tracking sales and events around the county. She is one of 13 representatives for the company.
