Florida Executive Realty Food Drive Scores Again!

The second annual food drive hosted by Florida Executive Realty (FER) in Tampa Palms was huge again this year. The real estate office, located at the intersection of Amberly Dr. and Tampa Palms Blvd., collected non-perishable food items and toiletries for more than three weeks.

On December 1, FER gathered all the food and loaded everything onto a 14′ foot U-Haul truck. On December 2, FER agents and their families came together and filled more than 420 grocery bags. The company’s agents, clients and the local community all definitely showed their holiday spirit this season, as FER donated the contributions to 14 local schools!

“We are thankful that we were able to serve our community and provide a little something to those families in need,” said FER Broker Doug Loyd.


Home Again Interiors Opens In Wesley Chapel

Whether you’re looking to fill your new home with beautiful furniture and accessories or you’re moving and would like to not have to bring all of your furnishings with you to your next home, you should visit a new store in the Shoppes at New Tampa plaza in Wesley Chapel at the intersection of BBD and S.R. 56.

The store, owned by Robin and Scott Winter, is called Home Again Interiors and is the New Tampa & Wesley Chapel area’s first furniture consignment shop.

As soon as you walk in the door, you’ll know you’ve found a special place, filled with high-end, gently used furniture and accessories. The prices marked are already low but, like a clothing consignment shop, those prices go down the longer each item remains in the store. Go and explore Home Again, where Robin and Scott say “Our name means a great deal!”

For more info, visit Home Again Interiors (1664 BBD Blvd.) or call 973-8363 and tell Scott and Robin we sent you! — GN
