CLAWSON, MICH. - Mary Liz Curtin, co-owner of lifestyle store Leon & Lulu's Curtain, was voted best independent store owner by the readers of upscale Hour Detroit magazine in its 2013 Best of Detroit contest.
     "What a thrill and a great surprise to win this very special honor," said Curtin. "Hour Detroit is a very prestigious publication and I am beyond grateful the fans of Leon & Lulu, staff, friends and clients took the time to vote and think of me. It's been a very lucky seventh year in business for us."
     Leon & Lulu has landed several awards this year, including The Next Big Give put on by the Dallas Market Center, which recognizes specialty retailers that make a difference in their communities. The store also won Best Furniture Store and Best Unique Shop in the Daily Tribune's 2013 readers poll, and Best Place to Find Home Décor Real Detroit Weekly's 2013 Best of Detroit contest.
     In April Curtin also was invited by The Wall Street Journal to be a small business contributor to The Experts, an new online forum designed to give readers a better understanding of small business issues covered in The Journal Reports, one of the paper's most popular sections. Curtin and the others interact with readers though short blog posts and video interviews about once every six weeks.
     Last year, Curtin received the Icon Honor for individual career accomplishment during the Atlanta International Gift and Home Furnishings Market.
