The Smart Shopper began in 1996 in West Alabama when Kim needed to support herself and her 5 children. They ( all the kids pitched in!) worked in the business together serving their West Alabama customers with the motto "Our minimum standard is excellence", and their first advertiser still advertises with Smart Shopper today!
Kim met John and they married in 2007 and she and the children relocated to Central Alabama, while JB Warren managed the on-site duties in West Alabama. Kim and John had a little girl, Jessi, and they also started the River Region Smart Shopper. Jessi is now 4 years old and still travels with Kim each week meeting our wonderful Smart Shopper clients. Kim and John treat their customers like family, and they give all the glory to God for the success of the Smart Shoppers. They believe that the papers are an avenue to bless people and they endeavor to glorify God as they reach others with encouragement through these publications.
