Business of the Year recognizes the company that made the most significant contribution benefiting the Mason County business community.  Any size business is eligible; recognition will be given overall contributions to improving our community and/or business climate. The winner of Business of the Year for 2017 is The Shopper!


The Shopper is a one-stop shop for printing, advertising, promotional materials, and office and spa supplies. Owners Jeff & Tracy Neely have built a great business along with daughter Kelsie Smith and their ten-person staff. For more than 25 years the business has been growing its footprint and its contributions to the community.  One nomination read “Jeff, Tracy, and their team are amazing! The service they provide and the quality or their work outshines any competitors. The volunteering and donations they share shows their commitment and care for our community.” This year alone, their contributions supported United Way, Karen Hilburn Breast & Cervical Cancer Fund, Mason General Hospital Foundation, Relay For Life, SHS Robotics Team, Forest Festival, Phoenix Base Project, OysterFest, local schools, and many, many more.
