A local business is taking a new approach to boosting the economy at the Lake of the Ozarks.

To celebrate their fifth anniversary here March 1, Scott and Sharon Hagan, owners of The Lime and the Coconut Specialty Compounding Pharmacy, are giving each of their employees cash bonuses consisting of $2 bills. Employees have 30 days to spend their $2 bills, with 10 percent of their bonuses spent at a local charity of their choice.  The rest can be spent at any "locally owned businesses" in the area. At that time they shall share the story behind the $2 bills in hopes that each bill is then returned in change to a local customer and the cycle repeats itself.
“The locally owned businesses in the lake area are what give our town 'Character',” the Hagans said.  “It's the 'Character' at the lake that has created such a tourist area as well as family traditions year after year from one generation to the next.”

As a Thank You to the local community the Hagan's want to encourage economic boost by shopping and supporting locally owned businesses.  

The Lime in the Coconut will be hosting an open house celebration this Thursday all day and a barbecue will start at 11 a.m.  Tours of the compounding lab will be given. Lake-area residents will see advances in chemistry and technology that allow compounded medications to be prepared in forms to fit each patient’s individual needs.  

There will also be drawings for prizes and giveaways such as a Kindle Fire and other great prizes.  The first 50 people to attend our celebration will also receive a $2 bill to help promote local spending.
