Shop Signal Mountain a Success

By Contributed Article

The Shopping Contest is an event designed to raise the awareness of the great shopping and services available and conveniently located right here on Signal Mountain in Signal Plaza and the Signal Crossing Shopping Centers. It is also an opportunity for these business owners to give back to the community by supporting our local schools.

“Most of our shop and business owners live right here on the mountain, our kids went to or go to these schools. This is a great way to promote a sense of community,” said Greg Forehand, whose children attended schools on the mountain.

Jeff Price, who has a son at Nolan Elementary, was impressed that participants from the four schools spent over $200,000 during the two-week contest period including real estate commissions at Crye-Leike Realtors.

The contest rules this year calculated the sales per student instead of total sales in order “to level the playing field” for the smaller schools. Interestingly, Nolan and SMMS were only 19˘ apart on a per student basis.

Lisa Adcock, owner of Lula’s Inc. presented the 1st Place prize check of $1,500 to Signal Mountain Christian School. Representing the school were Joshua Rogers, Laura Beth Wilkerson, and Laura Ryan.

Greg Forehand, owner of Contemporary Portraits, presented the 2nd Place prize check of $1,000 to Thrasher Elementary School. Accepting the check was Kay Turner and her daughter Laura Beth Turner.

Jeff Price, owner of J & S Shoes, presented the 3rd Place check of $750 to Nolan Elementary. Representing Nolan was Linda Ragland and her daughter Elizabeth Ragland.

Kari Holmes, owner of Accents, presented the 4th Place check of $500 to Signal Mountain Middle School. Mrs. Holmes daughter Laura Mish attends the middle school. Accepting the check for the school was Beth Hackett.

The business owners presenting the checks represented all the business owners in Signal Plaza and Signal Crossing Shopping Centers.

Congratulations to all the winners!
