Have a ‘Local Favorite’? Share with NSSC Friends!

February 21, 2022

By Caron Blitz

Most of us are extremely devoted to our doctors. But – many of us are just as devoted to favorite hair stylists, manicurists…even florists and jewelers!

Like you, once I find a “Local Favorite,” I tend to stick with them for years. Often you get to know the person or establishment over time and continue to support them for their services and products, and sometimes friendship.

These are special places and people in the community, and we’re hoping you’ll share yours with your North Shore Senior Center friends!

In future Savvy Shopper columns, I will be featuring these Local Favorites highlighting why you and others find them to be so special. And, when possible, we will include discounts and offers created especially for NSSC friends.

This is a win-win for you and the Local Favorites! You can show them your appreciation by submitting their name…and they benefit from the free PR to help grow their businesses.

The Categories Are…

Local Favorites may include:

  • Nail salons
  • Hair salons
  • Clothing stores
  • Furniture stores
  • Gift boutiques
  • Florists 
  • Eye glass stores
  • Jewelers
  • Pet stores 
  • And any other you would like to add

Here’s how you can share your “Local Favorites”

Email your Local Favorite(s) to:


In your email, include the following:

  • Your name and contact information 
  • The name and location of your Local Favorite(s)
  • A few lines about why they are your Local Favorites

Thanks in advance for sharing your community spots! We’re excited to see what you all say!
