If you’ve been to Big Creek Market or West End Marathon lately, you’ve probably seen Karen Brockhoff with Shop Smart Tennessee.As part of this UT Research Program, Karen is  giving away healthy snacks and gifts at Big Creek Market  and West End Marathon each week through early October.  She notes that the main objective of Shop Smart Tennessee is to get healthier offerings in the mom and pop stores all over Campbell County.  Brockhoff, who lives here in Campbell County, says, “There are people who are not able to drive to these stores that actually have to walk here to shop for their families, and the stores are doing a great job of getting in some good stuff.”
