Stop, Shop and Support is a shopping fair created by, organized by and exclusively featuring business-owning women in South St. Louis County.
April Bobbish had just launched her own business selling skin care products when she got the idea: a holiday vendor fair exclusively featuring local businesses owned by women. After all, Bobbish knew other women running their own businesses in Mehlville, Affton, Fenton and other South St. Louis County neighborhoods. She watched on Facebook as friends posted photos of jewelry, hair design and other products or services they were selling. “I just wanted to support small, local business and women in small business,” said Bobbish, who is an independent consultant with Apriori Beauty. “They wear so many hats these days and need the help.” Just a few weeks into her new business and just a month before Christmas, Bobbish returned to Facebook to …

The sister restaurant to the popular Senor Pique closed after less than a year.
Senoritas Pique, sister restaurant to the Jiminez-Gutierez family restaurant Senor Pique, closed last week after less than a year in business. Manager Jennifer Jimenez told the RFT that while the restaurant was “doing good,” the relationship with the landlord “just wasn’t working out.” Senoritas Pique was stationed inside the Quality Inn at 3730 South Lindbergh Blvd. in Sunset Hills. Senoritas Pique touted a more authentic, creative menu than typical St. Louis Mexican. Rather than rice and beans-centric side dishes, each entrée came with your choice of papas picositas, a spicy version of hashbrowns, esquites, a citrus, herb and chile-flavored corn dish, and jalepeno or mushroom-flavored quesadillas, according to Senoritas Pique's one-and-a…
