Local business glitters at awards

A South Surrey business is among 10 winners of the 13th annual Small Business BC Awards.

As recipient of the Best Online Marketer award, Glitter & Spice received $1,500 cash and the offer of a one-year, all-access pass to Small Business BC education resources and experts, as well as one-on-one business mentorship opportunities.

“We’d like to congratulate the winners of this year’s Small Business BC Awards and wish them the best of luck as they move on to grow their very successful operations,” George Hunter, CEO at Small Business BC, said in a news release.

“The participation of greater numbers of nominees from even more communities across the province this year has made for an entertaining and very high-spirited competition.”
