Co-owners of Downtown Loser Lee Golinello and Celeste Johnson were recognized by the City of Brooksville for their efforts in remodeling their new location: 202 S. Broad Street. Downtown Loser received the Margaret Ghiotto Commercial Improvement award at the October third regular city council meeting.
“This has been a long time coming!” Celeste Johnson said, thanking the Brooksville City Council. The award was presented by Brooksville Beautification Board Chair, Kathy Middleton.
Downtown Loser has just celebrated its 9th anniversary, 2 months after moving to 202 S. Broad Street, just a few doors down from their previous location. “It’s a much bigger location,” Johnson said, inviting newcomers to check out the new spot.
The new location on the corner of South Broad Street and Lemon Ave was given a new vibrant green color and general makeover, adding beauty to their block.
Downtown Loser specializes in nutritional shakes that help with weight loss and improved energy.
