REDONDO BEACH, CA, March 19, 2013 /EIN Presswire/
-- The Shop Local
movement has officially put a stake in the ground in Vallejo, CA with the announcement of local consignment boutique, Mulligan's Attic as the first Certified Locally Owned (CLO) business in the area. CLO gives local businesses like Mulligan's Attic the tools to help raise awareness in the community about local businesses by increasing their visibility through certification. Mulligan's Attic is located at 2515 Springs Road in Vallejo, CA 94591.
Based in Redondo Beach, CA, Certified Locally Owned (CLO) initially targeted the Southern California communities around Redondo Beach. However, businesses from a number of communities across the country are applying for certification, so this most recent addition comes as no surprise says founder, Heidi Butzine
"It's always been our goal to attract a network of locally owned businesses on a national scale," states Ms. Butzine. "It pleases me that the word about our organization has resonated to our friends in Northern California. Mulligan's Attic is exactly the type of business which we support."
Mulligan's Attic is a family-owned business that was established in Vallejo in 2012. They have been on the hunt for treasures for many years, and now want to share the results of their successful search with their customers. The founders live and work in Vallejo and have been thrilled with the support and reception the store has received.
Owners, Jeff and Stephanie of Mulligan's Attic were very enthusiastic about earning the designation as a Certified Locally Owned company. "Being a relatively new business in town, we're proud to show our neighbors that we're local residents with a business in the community. We support Certified Locally Owned and think other businesses in Vallejo will too," stated Stephanie.
