It’s July and we are so excited to announce this month’s LOLO gifts! There are so many unique, wonderful local businesses in Middle Tennessee and we are so ready to celebrate them this month!
LOLO, Locals Supporting Locals, is an amazing program for your Parks realtor to give to you! Each month, a completely free, new gift comes to your cell phone for you to enjoy. The gifts are selected by county and are only for local businesses, no nationwide chains!
LOLO helps remind us to shop local and support our friends and neighbors! Here are July’s gifts to you!
