LUTZ — When elected as Lutz Guv’na, Suzin Carr vowed to promote local businesses. Turning her words into action, she came up with the Lutz Shop and Stroll.
That Dec. 12 event coincides with Breakfast with Santa, which takes place from 9 a.m. to noon at the Old Lutz Schoolhouse. The Lutz Shop and Stroll will involve 40 local businesses, including eight anchor stops.
“It’s a win-win for all kinds of people,” Carr said. “There’s a couple of people, when I went to them they said, ‘I always wanted to do this.’”
Like Breakfast with Santa on that second Saturday in December, the Lutz Shop and Stroll is scheduled from 9 a.m. to noon. The public is invited to check off a so-called shopping list be visiting Lutz businesses along US 41 and become eligible for what Carr dubbed as the “Grand Basket of Lutz.”
“It’s just going to be a great mix of stuff after people have had breakfast with Santa,” Carr said.
Eight shops have been selected with five local vendors offering products or services at each stop along the way. That list includes: Felicitous, The Old Lutz School, Susan’s Mane Tamers, Castle Furniture, Great Gardens and Gifts, Nancy’s Good and Fast Food, Patio Ways and Caremes Market.
“My role as Guv’na I take very seriously,” she said. “I told these people I would support them. They supported me.”
