Trussville Merchants Participate in Shop Save & Share
By Sara Franklin, Special to The Trussville Tribune
TRUSSVILLE — For the 11th year in a row, the Junior League of Birmingham (JLB) will hold its Shop Save & Share fundraiser in late October, and many Trussville stores and restaurants are participating. This initiative supports the League’s more than 30 community projects while at the same time driving customers to local retailers and restaurants.
When you purchase a Shop Save & Share card for $40, you receive a 20 percent discount on merchandise and food at the fundraiser’s more than 500 participating stores and restaurants. Since its inception, Shop Save & Share has put over $475,000 back into the community.
This year’s Shop Save & Share program will run from October 19 through 30, and the Junior League of Birmingham is thrilled to have Birmingham’s best retailers and restaurants on board for 2016, including several located in Trussville.
When it comes to using your card, many customers note that the variety of retailers is what keeps them coming back year after year.
Carroll Pharmacy is returning as a Shop Save & Share participant this year.
“Shop Save & Share is one of our favorite community activities to participate in each year,” Meagan Carroll Reynolds, Pharmacist at Carroll Pharmacy, said. “We have a gift shop located in our pharmacy full of perfect gifts for friends and family here in Trussville, whether you are looking for a stuffed animal or a picture frame, we’ve got gifts for people of all ages.”
Other Trussville-area businesses participating in Shop Save & Share include Complete Cleaners and Tula J Boutique, Blackjack Gardens, Yogurt Mountain, and Ginni G. Florist, just to name a few.
Also, through the Junior League of Birmingham a Shop Save and Share donation does the following:
-Provides eight meals through Meals on Wheels in Jefferson County
-Provides one week of snacks, magazines, books to mothers restricted to bed rest in the UAB NICU
-Provides one child who is suffering from “under nutrition” to have food provided to them for the weekends for an entire school year through the Backpack Buddies program
-Provides 1.5 children one book per month for five years through Better Basics & JLB Imagination Library
