Shopping-Bargains.com was formally inducted into the Circle of Honor at the 5th annual Mississippi Business Integrity Awards banquet held in Jackson, Mississippi on March 29, 2007.

As founder and president of Shopping-Bargains.com, I am deeply honored to have been selected to receive this award. I appreciate the recognition of our efforts to treat people fairly and to run an ethical business. I also look forward to continued service to others as we grow Shopping-Bargains.com.
